IT’S TAX TIME AGAIN
Thanks to TURBO TAX software and the fact that we no longer have an antique mall booth, the 2010 tax preparation went smoothly Sunday night. Keeping up with the bookkeeping and working one day a month at the mall were my least favorite things to do. Buying and selling stuff were my favorite.
Fortunately, we get some $$ back this year instead of pay more $$ in. Let’s see, what can I use the refund on? Sure would help toward a new Janome 6600 or Horizon. But guess what, it’s going toward our credit card debt. We had two major car repairs last month so the Visa bill is a little bigger than usual. Boo hoo.
Speaking of money, this quote was in the Quilter’s Club of American newsletter. “If fabric prices go up much more, I will have to rob a bank. So if you should read about a bank robber with a quilt over her head....armed with a rotary cutter.....you will know it's me.” –- QCA member Jane’s. I say the 60mm rotary cutter would be the best one -- it looks more menacing than the others.
Cotton prices are going sky-high, however, other countries such as Australia, have been paying "out the nose" for good quilting fabric for a long, long time. So now we are beginning to know how they feel.
Until next time,
