I now have naked windows after taking down the curtains for a spin in the washer. Our bedroom is south facing, after years (10 or 15) of remaking them to match whatever bed spread I was using at the time they fell apart in the wash. No mending in the world was gonna bring the poor things back after dry rot had set in. New bedroom curtains are now on my need to get list.
I took breaks yesterday from cleaning the master bath to stamp a few handmade cards. Some are headed to a new home as a pick me up gift, others are in my card drawer which was beginning to get low.
After the cards were finished I took breaks in the afternoon to piece a few blocks for MY Fall quilt. Easy as pie since I was using pre-cuts!!
I think I am going to love this quilt to death. The fabric is "Tree Huggers" from Studio E. I think the fabric might be a couple of years old so I am going to have to search to find some yardage for the backing. Most of the time I would just make do but I am going to make an exception this time.
Trick or Treat bags are cut out for Kara and Karsyn. On to the sewing. Hope to share the tutorial I found for these tomorrow so stay tuned. They are sew easy to make!!
30 tissue holders are in a holding pattern waiting on me to sit down and get them made up. The tissue holders will be going in goodie bags for a local nursing home, so excited to do something fun for the ladies!!
Thought it was only fair to show what my sewing/scrap room looks like when I work in it! By the end of the day I will have everything back in its place nice and neat. No reason to do a clean up until I am done messing around.
I have a surprise afternoon off from keeping Kara today. Kara, Mommy, and Daddy are down with colds. The only rooms I had planned on deep cleaning this week were our bedroom and bath. With those tasks completed yesterday I decided a day of sewing and working on my sewing "To Do" list would be a great idea.
I have an assembly line of sewing set up in the kitchen that I hope to finish before dinner tonight. If not I should be able to get a few hours of sewing in before the debates start up tonight. I so hope Joe Biden gives us a good show. That man is a mess!! Ha
When faced with an unplanned day off how do you spend your time? I could do some running around returning sweaters that need to go back to the store, a bank deposit, drop off at the dry cleaners, look for bedroom curtains but who wants to spend their free time running the roads. NOT ME!!!! Give me a free day at home and I am a happy girl.
