I Like Thursday #55

Welcome to my I like Thursday #55 double nickel,  my age in just a couple of weeks.  Thank you to LeeAnna at Not Afraid of Color for encouraging us to find something to like even when life gives you lemons.

1.  I like my Ott Light that I bought.  I have a floor one, but sometimes in my house it isn't enough.  This little table one is awesome.

2.  I like these dish towels that I purchased recently.  They make me smile.

3.  I like when I get something accomplished.  This is a church charity quilt.  Just the top, but it took a lot of work the way they have it pinned together so you can't really sew it together using webbing. 
4. I like this series by Michael Arches.  I have read the first two books. 

It has been a busy week, somehow even though the weather has been a bit dicey.  I wanted to take pictures of the trees, and stuff after the ice storm, but unfortunately it was very wet, slippery and the ground is so sloppy that my garden clogs aren't cutting it.  Bobbin is off at her board and train part deux so I am taking advantage and cleaning without the additional help.  Now head over to LeeAnna's at Not Afraid of Color (link at the top) and check out the rest of the I Like Thursday posts.

  2. I love my Ott light, too. So nice to use right by my sewing machine! Cute towels! And thanks for the book recommendation! I'm always looking for a new mystery series to read.

  3. Hi Colette! What you can clean without Bobbin's helpful help?! What fun is that?!! I can just see her helping you, following you around and pulling out toys as you put them away. ~smile~ Roseanne

  7. Hi, funny you are showing your Ott lite; I think I showed the same one today too. I love it. I can't seem to have too many of these great lights! Meanwhile how did little Bobbin fare at her training? Fine I hope.

  8. Oh my goodness! Both of those dishtowels! But especially the pants one. I haven't read the michael Arches books but I looked them up on goodreads and they look like my kind of thing. If you like Mountain mysteries you might enjoy the Glacier Park mysteries by Caroline Carbo. There are three or four and I really enjoyed them.

  9. LOL - love those dishtowels, especially the one on the left. That's why I don't say much about my sewing in new company because invariably I'll be asked a question like that.

  10. When sewing, you can never have enough light, especially at our ages! (I just turned 55 recently - happy birthday to you in advance!!!) And thanks for visiting my blog this week ...
