   Yesterday we ran away...not too far..had to be home by 5.  Just to Mankato to browse (and eat).  This is what I've been working on.  Not too impressive.  I dug out all the wool coats I've bought and got them organized.
   Some went on shelves like this (nicely folded--rather than stuffed.)  I wash the coats as soon as I get them.  It's really a mess cutting them up so I like to stick with it once I start.
  The rest I cut into large squares, small squares and  rectangles.  Two small squares sewn together are equal to a rectangle.  Four small squares make a large square. And 2 rectangles make a large square.  I have a whole tub of them all ready to sew!  (Instead of 5 tubs)  But for now--they're back in the garage waiting their turn.
Now you know why I like to run away once in a while. (When we left home the temperature was around 41 and by 5 it was 26.)
