The weekend was busy. The girls were all home and we went garage saling and shopping on Saturday…(More on that in another post) but Sunday the girls were out of here early and back to scramble on with their day before their busy week start. As much as I loved seeing them, that was okay. I have a busy week starting on Monday too and felt the need to get some things in place before it started.
I’m not nervous about the treatment anymore so that’s good. Now it’s close enough that I’m in prepping mode and completely off worry mode. I wanted to get my laundry caught up, the sheets changed from the weekend, the refrigerator cleaned out and all that sort of stuff.
Another thing I wanted to do was finish my string blocks that I’ve been working on in an on and off pace. I have two trips back and forth to Lacrosse this week so taking papers off on my way is on my to do list..but of course I can’t take papers off if the blocks aren’t finished up!
Yet another reason I want them finished up….I’m tired of looking at this!
It seems no matter what I do when I string piece this always happens. I start out nice, clean and organized and then it’s like a bomb exploded.
I sometime wonder if that’s why some people don’t like string piecing. If I was sewing at my dining room table like I know many do, I’d hate to have the mess out for everyone to see. I’ve been there and done that. In fact, that’s one of the many reasons I love having the sewing room upstairs and out of sight. For a long time I wondered if I’d like that but being the kids are grown and there’s an upstairs bathroom, I love it.
When Kayla was home she said, “With the bathroom on the upper floor right next to the sewing room, there’s no need to even go downstairs when you wake up in the morning. You can just wake up and start sewing”. I laughed and said I do it ALL THE TIME-actually every day! She suggested I should get a mini frig up there and then I’d really be set. I’m not going that far or I’d likely never come down….but it is an idea!?!
I’m off. I have lots more things to tackle on my to-do list today….including a couple charity quilts.
