Long Week is Over!

What a week! I'm plumb tuckered out tonight. I hope I can sleep in a bit in the morning. The only thing on the agenda for tomorrow is to get the filthy car washed and then head over to Jane's.

I've been having so much fun on these BOMs I'm doing that I signed up for another one! I know, I know, you don't have to say it. This one popped up on The Fat Quarter Shop and I couldn't resist. I've never really liked mysteries too much, but this one has me intrigued. About this time next year I'm going to have lots of BOMs finished at the rate I'm going! LOL
Oh, Kimberly also has a new fun game on her blog. The Jolly Jabber link is in my sidebar. Check it out!
The flowers in the house smell so good. I have two beautiful arrangements here that I received for my birthday this week. I used to buy flowers every Friday night at the market and make an arrangement using greenery from my yard. I need to start doing that again. Flowers make me happy. Of course, I don't have a yard any more, but I'm sure those shrubs outside could stand to lose a sprig or two from time to time! :)
I did figure out why it's been so hard for me to get up in the mornings lately. A couple of months ago the power went out, and I had to reset all the clocks. I keep the alarm set for 5:00 a.m., but until I reset the clocks, I was always awake when the alarm went off. One morning this week I was rushing to get dressed because the clock on my bedside table said it was 7:30. That's too late for me to be leaving the house. I came tearing downstairs and was trying to round Daisy up in the kennel when I noticed the clock on the mantle. It said it was 7:00. The microwave clock said 7:00 also, as did my computer. OMG, my clock upstairs was half an hour fast. I had been forcing myself up at 4:30 a.m.! LOL. Sheesh, you can't take me anywhere! I don't even look at the clock once I'm up because I know how long it takes for the doggie walk, the coffee to cook and shower/hair time. I can't believe it took me that long to figure it out. What a dutz I am!
Finishing the third All Things Christmas block is on my list of things to do this weekend. In fact, I'm going to work on it tonight, so it should easily be finished by tomorrow. Then I guess I'll prep another pumpkin block. I've been enjoying the evening applique. I am going to sew Sunday, though, on the string quilt. Miss Bernina needs to be turned on!
And for sure one thing I'm going to do on Sunday is tackle that huge stack of magazines and quilt books that have piled up over there. My bookshelves are full at the top of the staircase, so I'm going to have to make room for them downstairs. I sure can't enjoy them stacked in that pile!

Vicky, I've been waiting for you to tell us about your applique group, and instead, here you are trying to MEG us again! Sheesh! Yes, I can see that Moda U mystery would be extremely intriguing! And, yes, it's also very tempting. But I have a Hometown Christmas BOM to start! LOL! Don't forget to turn the darn alarm OFF!

Vicky, i might be tempted to check out our newest BOM but after spending the day and evening in my sewing room cleaning and trying to make more room, I'm not even looking. LOL!! I have no will power.
You need to climb up in your bed with a few of those quilt books,magazines and catalogs. I love doing that in the evening.
I too love fresh flowers. I try to buy them every week.

You've tempted me with the pumpkins, the Christmas blocks so I'm not even going to look at this At least you were getting up too I'm waiting to hear about applique group too. I can't have flowers anymore....the little furball likes to eat them.

Gail said...

I'm more tempted by that pile of books and magazines in your many good ideas lurking there, waiting to pounce and demand to be made!!

Oh Gosh, I think you got me on this one Vicky, give yourself another notch, as soon as I get my credit card it's a done deal, I love that fabric line and I know Kimberly delivers a good product!
Hope it's another "FUN with VIC and JANE" day for you!

I really enjoyed reading this post of a bit of this and a bit of that. I'm trying not to sign up for any more BOM, RR, swaps or anything else until I get a major project of my own finished!
