finished a courthouse steps


After writing down the directions for the babysize courthouse steps I started pulling fabrics from the stash (which I was supposed to be packing but that isn't the story today.) Anyway, in a moment of "I don't want to move anymore so I'm going to sulk and hide in my sewing room" I decided to reproduce the little quilt.

In all it only took and afternoon! I only used fabrics I had on hand and didn't try to be too exact in matching the fabrics. The look is close and the fabrics the right period. It is a fun little quilt. When DH got home from golf he didn't quite get why I would make a quilt-top that looked like one I already have?! Poor man gets confused often I'm afraid.

The packers showed up about 10 minutes ago...that is 28 hours late. They are afraid of dogs and allergic to cats. Not boding well!!

My favorite daylilly flowered this week. I ment to take a bit to bring up to my Dad's garden...it is a bit late but I may give it a try anyways. A bunch were given to me by a member of my quilting guild a few years ago.

Well I guess I'd best get back to either keeping the animals calm or packing...

This is the problem with men - I bet he doesn't think it's at all mad that he's going round the same golf course he's gone round hundreds of times - uh?!?!?
