Company arrives tomorrow...can you feel my elevated heart rate through your computer monitor? Sometimes I think I would never have the WHOLE house cleaned, both upstairs and down, if I didn't have company. Mr. Joe and I worked on the cabin last week, this week it was time for the house in the suburbs. Carpets cleaned, check.....mattress flipped, check.....windows washed, check.......all dust bunnies rounded up and headed out from under the beds.....double check! The list goes on and on. My only place of refuge is my sewing room, so of course I started there. I can be working in there all day and not feel like I'm working at all.
I folded, and rearranged this whole pie safe full of goodies. I found fabrics I don't remember buying. What fun to discover new things that I didn't know I had. That in itself is a good reason to reorganize and sort through your stash.
While I was sorting, I found these blocks from Vintage Valentine by Verna Mosquera. This is my second applique project that I started. It is a UFO for the time being. Some day when I retire for real, I'll finish this beautiful quilt. You can tell that I loved plaids, stripes and checks from the very beginning of my life as a quilter. Somethings just never change.
Head on over to Hazel's and enter her contest to win an autographed copy of Pick Four by Sue Abrey. Hazel is a delightful writer and you will enjoy her review of Sue's book. Pull up a chair, pour a cup of tea and enjoy.
My break time is over. Today is menu planning and grocery shopping. I wish you could all be here and at the cabin with my cousin from North Carolina and my sister. Hopefully my cousin will fly out before the hurricane arrives. The food is going to be excellent, the conversation will be full of laughter and we will be in a spotless house/cabin!!!
