I saw that Shelly at Prairie Moon Quilts is starting a "block a day" group.  That's kind of what I've been doing, but not a commitment to it.  So I'm trying to decide if I want to sign up for this.  I'm thinking if nothing else, I could whip out a string block and count it as the day's block.  The more I write, the more I'm talking myself into this.  OK, I'll do it.

Along with all my other commitments, I may end up committed.

Decluttered item - A book my husband just finished reading, going in the donate pile.
