What a day!!
Cleaning house... finally. And now I am all weary and tired to the bones. How do people clean houses all day long? Yuck. It's not a bad job with lots of little helpers. I can just think of several other things that I'd rather be doing. Ya know? It isn't altogether clean, but I don't want to be a hypocrite. Having a cleaner house does have it's perks. There is no longer that nervous feeling you get when you know there are some chemistry experiments going on in your own refrigerator. You realize that your light fixtures are clear and not amber. Cobwebs are no longer draping every surface above the 6 foot mark. All good things. Laundry is still piled up and there just does not remain enough time to get it all done. My sweet William suggested I put it in the garage. He sniggered and I rolled my eyes. Do you know how long it would take to get it all in the garage? really, the ignorance of some people. So I guess we will have to circumvent the laundry room. Maybe drape it all with a particularly lovely quilt... Did I forget to mention we are expecting around 50 house guests, tomorrow evening? Won't that be fun? I have my dining room cleared out and folding chairs all strategically set up. Hope everyone fits. We are having a potluck/pitchin/carryin and then we are gonna do a little singing. The acoustics should be good with the 12' ceiling, huh? Alas, the drywall still isn't finished. I had such high hopes... but and however, once the folding chairs are moved out, I figure drywalling will be a cinch. Right? (the beautiful quilt is a gift from our own sweet Darcie- www.quiltingbydarcie.blogspot.com. I have quilts hanging on every wall- wonder what the R value is? I think they distract nicely from the splatter of joint compound. Decorating in a construction zone. "What's your decorating style?" "Oh, I'm all for cottage industrial."
The wonderwallets are what I made while I was procrastinating. A friend wants to add them to her stockings for Xmas. I get cell phone bags in exchange.
The following quilt... well, thought it would be good for a giggle. Julie in the barn was lamenting original quilts in blogland. Thought I'd show her a "one of a kind!" It's a round robin of sorts that has grown into a monster. No, stop that. Tilting your head sideways doesn't make it look any better.
