Missing You

So sorry, but last week I got this bug up my butt to paint the kitchen and get some new appliances (stainless), and the project has been all-consuming. I'm hoping to be done with everything except painting inside of closets and pantries today (and then, as I've got to put away all the paint stuff that's on the kitchen table, we may never see those closets and pantries painted). The inlaws are visiting tomorrow, so there's a dinner for 10 (go big or go home) planned, so we've got to work fast.

I did get in a little 8 a.m. this morning:

Okay, okay, so all I did was sew the hanging sleeve on it...but hey, it was sewing nonetheless, and I feel good having actually finished something creative at 8 a.m. on a Saturday morning (when I should have been snoring soundly in my bed), before I've even had my first cup of coffee!.

There's two projects prepped and in baskets on my sewing table for later in the week--the Aurifil June Designer's block, and the MAQ Merry Mayhem Mystery Quilt finale.

And an envelope of wool arrived for the July wool applique banner.

Ttoday is Part 2 of the Vintage Rouge BOM class at noon, so I'd better get going if I'm going to get the dining room carpet shampooed once more before I leave.

Enjoy a glorious Summer Saturday! Even though I'll be engaged in no-fun, laborious house projects, I've got a hot little coupon for 40% off any one item at the quilt shop the BOM class is at, so you know I'm coming home with something to reward myself for all the work I've put in this week.


  1. I laughed out loud when I read your "go big or go home" comment! I would be going batty with company coming, dinner for 10, and a in progress kitchen paint project.

  2. I hope you all enjoyed your dinner?

    Your sewing finish is really cute, and I love the colours of the wool you received. I wonder if you're making a flag?

  3. I've never attached a hanging sleeve before. I've made 'hanging corners' but that's it. I will one day as I have a nice quilt that would look better on the wall than in the cupboard!!!


I appreciate and look forward to your comments. Thanks for reading. Happy quilting!
