the printed word.

16 May

okay so i’m just gonna scream through this post as it’s 6:45am and i’m not dressed and i still have yesterday’s mascara smeared all over my face and i’ve got lots to get done today so…..if you get a charge out of finding spelling errors and/or grammatical mis-steps, have at it. glad i could make your friday!

been keeping my nose to the quilt machine while carin is on maternity leave. once she goes back to work i’ll have 2 babies to care for. i’m looking forward to it with fear and trepidation!

however, i when ido have some downtime i like to read. i will give you a peek at one of my foibles. magazines. do you buy ’em? subscribe to ’em? read ’em? stack them up? read them in the bathtub? i do.

just a little sampling of my recent purchases. thank goodness my interests are limited to sewing and eating. imagine all the magazines i’d have if i branched out into…woodworking, gardening, photography etc.

i recently became re-aquainted with mary engelbreit’s home companion.

have just sampled 2 issues. love love love the first one. it features articles on heather bailey and also laura wasilowski. somehow, the magazine speaks directly to me:

this one gets rated a full 5 water splots by me. 00000

i just picked up the next issue and have only bonded with it once but it looks to be just as delicious
with articles featuring anna maria horner (a fabric designer and mom of 5! look at this fabrulous pin cushion: too early for a rating on this one but it looks like it will be a wet one too!

and even though we’ve suspended the supper swap until fall, i want to keep in shape so i picked this up at my grocery store yesterday: did you see? 5 ingredients. that i can do.

and look. full color pix! more than 350 quick and easy recipes. it says so on the cover. i haven’t tried any yet but intend to ( i know i know, certain roads are paved with good intentions) again, i anticipate lots of water splots and will go out on a limb and give it 4 0000 (it would have gotten 5 if there was scratch and sniff squares!)

i think i’ll put a few magazines on the rummage sale i’m working towards. i’ll start here:

and there you go….a peek into my warped mind and it’s only 7:15. i’m off to work (after a brief visit with some soap and water and toothpaste)
