Fabric covered boxes

Today I went to the Chickasha Quilt Guild with some friends. We covered shoe boxes with fabric. It was a lot of fun to hang out with friends and the boxes turned out really cute. I need to embellish mine and then I think I'll make another one for my daughter.
My husband retired from the Air Force and now I have to be more careful about spending so much on fabrics. This is a real bummer. I'm pretty spoiled and not used to watching the budget so closely. I've been doing pretty good so far, but this is going to take some time to get use to. I have lots of UFO's and quilt kits that I can work on, so I will still have lots to do.
My cat has been a bad boy lately. We have seen him keeping a close eye on the area in our ba
ck yard where some bunnies live. A few days ago he caught and ate one of them. The worst part of it was that he dragged the poor bunny into my kitchen to feast on it!
I have a new quilt project to work on. I agreed to piece a log cabin quilt for the Newcastle Nighttime Needlers Quilt Guild. This will be our raffle quilt. We will be using some of the money from the raffle quilt to help pay for the expenses for our quilt guilds quilting 2010 retreat.
