I’m behind today. Typically I write my blog posts on Sunday for Monday but that didn’t happen this week. I am behind from last week….the stars didn’t align and I had very little sewing time. I do have to say that I am over the hump on feeling better.
Last week on Friday I realized that two of my family’s had today, Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday, off. That left me with only one family that needed care. I opted to take the day off!! I am so excited as we are also experiencing an “icing event” weather wise so that leaves me in the house with the house to myself. I love Hubby dearly but there is something to be said about having the house to myself now and then….sadly, it won’t be a sewing day but rather a day to work on tax prep…ugh.
Anyway…I did say that I didn’t accomplish much at all last week..here is proof. I did sew together one of the mystery blocks. As of yet, I’m not sure how I am going to like my version. If you remember I have an issue with not paying attention to my color way. Where there is light purple around the outside I technically should have had pink. Oh well…we’ll soon see how it looks.
More importantly, I got a charity quilt off of the frame. This one is done by Cindy. I have all three of Cindy’s quilts through the machine now. I love the Trip Around the World designs. Don’t you?
Here’s the backing. Long ago at the thrift store I bought a homemade pair of curtains. One side had Disney princesses on it…the other blue fabric. It was good fabric and only $2.50 for a pair. I ended up opening up the seam, piecing the fabric together and that’s what made the backing for this one. I think some little girl is going to like it.
Ruby was tired and annoyed with me this morning. I insisted on snapping the picture before I took her downstairs and let her outside….she doesn’t do well without some morning food.
I have another busy week. Foolishly I ripped apart the house over the weekend, resorting and reorganizing all of the childcare things. It’s a huge task….but sorely needed. The kids do much of the picking up. For the most part they do a good job but every so often I have to dive in and do a deep cleaning of it all….I’m about 3/4 of the way done. I’m hoping to finish the rest today in between working on the dreaded taxes. UGH. I absolutely hate paperwork. My weekend will close with a visit from Connie…I can’t wait. We have plans to sew at my house this weekend…you know what that means, I have to clean up the sewing room too. It’s gotten out of hand again.
