Monday – another chance to start my New Life

After using the excuses of a busy schedule, vacation, visitors, and “too tired”, it is time to get moving again towards my New Life – yes, that energized Bonnie who gets all her projects done.  So far I am off to a lousy start.  The daily Sudoku puzzle was not easy this morning and I had a lot of blog reading to catch up on along with sorting out purchases and gifts from this past week.  It is nearly lunch time and not a single project has been touched.  Ah well, I have all afternoon and evening……

My visitors brought me some lovely gifts including a Downton Abbey jigsaw puzzle and a generous gift card……

Tumbleweedsapril2013 013While shopping with the girls, I bought fabric…….backgrounds, backings, and fat quarters….

Tumbleweedsapril2013 016A big completely unnecessary purchase was this fragrance lamp…..
