The picture I couldn't post yesterday. And Daisy always has to run over and drop a toy in the picture. It's play time for her when I put something on the floor to photo. Silly dog!
I slept away the day yesterday. My body must have needed it but I've got a lot of catching up to do today. I need to run errands, but I don't want to get out. I might just piddle around with housework and stay inside. Checked the freezer, and I've got some ground sirloin in there, so a pot of spaghetti might be on the meal agenda.
Will anyone fess up to doing the Patchwork Party that just started? I've joined the party, and four of my blocks have arrived. I really want to get started on those, but I'm going to wait until a night this week to start making them. I know myself well enough to know that if I even open the first package today, that I'll spend the whole day working on them. I'm normally not a fan of black on quilts, but this fabric did sing to me. Yep, the fat lady was singing .... (sigh). The finishing kits were all quite lovely, but I decided to go with the one from the Fat Quarter Shop because it wasn't so dark. Plus it's a fairly simple setting that I might actually finish.
It occurred to me that some out in bloggerland might think I work for the FQ Shop. Nope, just a devoted customer. Kimberly's site is so easy to navigate, and it's always the first place I go to when looking for something -- or just looking. Besides, if I worked there, I would have zero money left over from my paychecks after I paid my tab each month! I would be sleeping in my car! LOL. Since I'm real lousy at posting links, I've got the FQ shop over in my sidebar for easy poking if something I mention appeals to you. But be sure and tell me when I can put another notch in my megging belt! :)
I can barely even get to my cutting table or sewing table for all of the fabric sitting around. Cleaning up that space is on the agenda today, as well as repacking that suitcase with the stuff I'll need to bring to the second Applique Club meeting on Thursday night. And I'm so far behind on washing. I'm heading over there right now to get those machines running. It'll be an all-day process, I'm sure. I hate hearing appliances running so I delay turning them on. At 2:30 this morning I came downstairs and started the dishwasher.
Another thing I want to do today is iron the batiks that I washed last weekend, and cut my foundations so I can get Judy's string quilt made. Another project that I won't be able to stop once I start sewing. It's going to be so pretty! I picked up a backing for it last week, so I'm all ready for this one to be a quick project.
It's almost 7:30 am. The day is wasting away. I'd best get at it.
