Project: Simplify 2012!

So it's that time again for a little spring cleaning!  Tsh is hosting the Project: Simplify again at Simple Mom.  I was noticing that I blogged quite a bit about this last spring and promptly stopped blogging.  hmm.  Guess I simplified that part of my life!
We'll be using the 10 steps to simplify our lives that she outlines in her book Organized Simplicity.  I have this book and it is great.  Straightforward and easy to read, though the steps require a lot of introspection as to the why of the stuff we have.  So, it can be a bit of a challenge to do the steps, especially when there are other peoples stuff involved! (husband and children!)

Hope you will participate and link up each week!

Granny Square Quilt-a-long

I have long been a part of this Old Red Barn Co. flickr group.  But I have only done one or two of the projects as quilting has taken a back seat in life with 4 kids.

Blogging also had to slow down, though maybe that is the fault of my iPhone!  Anyway, Dana and the group is starting this great quilt-along on March 1st.  I'm sure I can fit this in with the other 3 quilts already in progress! More on those later.
