Messy LA Quilter
I couldn't stand the scrap basket overflowing and Daisy scattering stuff everywhere. She discovered that I pay attention to her when she's in my scraps making mischief! So yesterday afternoon I started cutting, and I cut and cut -- cut until 11:00 last night. I read through Bonnie's scrap management tips, and now have scraps that are usable. I still have a bunch of bricks and squares to cut, but the strips are done and that took care of about two-thirds of the scraps. Can't wait to get in them and start making quilts!
I've been working on my niece's quilt. Still making the first set of blocks, but I'm having more fun just piecing a bit and running to the TV when something Paula Deen is cooking sounds good. In between I've been doing some household chores, but not many! :) I slept until almost 6:30 this morning - so that wasted a couple of hours out of my usual day!
I fixed a big breakfast for myself this morning: bacon, eggs, grits, toast, fruit. I'm still stuffed two hours later. I found myself smiling while I was cooking the bacon. My Mom was real impatient when she was cooking bacon. She'd lay all the strips out real nice and neat, and about two minutes into the cooking she'd get impatient and stir them all up. So growing up our bacon was never pretty, but sure tasted good. This morning I did the same thing just because I was thinking about her. And it also made me realized where my impatience came from! LOL
Off to clean up the mess by my cutting table. Looks like I missed the trash can more than I hit it!!
