Frugal Friday With Marsha--Week in Review

It's been a pretty normal busy week around our house.    Our family night out included going to the music program that my 3rd grade granddaughter, Willo, was in.  They did a good job and the music was good.  If you are a member of tsu, I did share a photo there.

A blessing happened this week.  I received my box of Renuzit items in for review and inside I was one of the lucky winners of a $50 Visa card!  I am saving this back to help me pay for most of the quilt retreat I am attending at the end of April.  

Yesterday when I was going down the topics in chatabout I ran across Freebie Pictures as a topic.  I hope to get to sending for more freebies to add to the items that I get in for review.  I did send for some Centrum vitamin samples this week and you will find that link shared in my tsu as well.  This week for review I received the 3 Renuzit products as well as some all natural shampoo and conditioner. ( I plan to have my Renuzit post up tomorrow with a giveaway where 3 winners will each win a free coupon)

I had hoped that the seeds that my daughter started for me last Friday would have sprouted in the 7 days, but not so far.  I have been spritzing them with water twice daily.  Here is what the kitchen window looks like so far.  We can plant outside around the first of April.

I picked up my free Take 5 candy bar from the Dillon's Friday freebie.  If you have a Kroger store in your area, make sure to get your free item each week.  This week the freebie is Kroger Greek yogurt and I just added it to my card and my mom's card.

I used some of my amazon earnings to order cat food and black ink for our printer.  The cat food came in just on the day that I fed the cats the last of what was in the container.  I will be sharing the various places where I earn amazon in my February earnings post in early March.

That's about it for this week.  I look forward to seeing what comes about this week.

WIP Wednesday --Wrapping Up February

I don't have much to share this week.  I've had some days of no sewing or crafting motivation--mostly due to just being so busy outside of the home, but I did get some things done.

I finished the 2nd pink 4 patch and delivered it to quilt guild to be given to an agency called First Call for Help.

I worked more on the brown colored hexagons.  I only got about 10 or 11 done throughout the week so chose not to take a picture.

I worked a tiny bit on one of the doll rugs while out and about since I carry that bag in my large purse.

I got out the brown little squares and started string sewing them together.  I will work this week to at least finish stringing, but hopefully more.  Only a few more days left for brown to be the challenge color with the soscrappy blog.

Last week at church there was a box of yarn donated to use to make prayer shawls.  I didn't mean to, but ended up being the one to take it home.  I was told a story based on the one that I am working on now.  I'm sure it was started to be a blanket, but I am going to finish it as a prayer shawl and offer it back to the man who donated the yarn first.   See, it was a project that his first wife had started and he's been hanging on to it for many years since.  She was murdered back in February of 1977.  I'm not sure if he will want it as a prayer shawl, but feel it's fitting that he should have it if he wants it.
