Just realized I am very close to 700 posts...need to think of some way to celebrate! stay tuned.
I took a break from organizing the sewing room to do some sewing. At least I planned to until the workman showed up to fix the deck and the front door. Inviting carpenters to work on the house is sort of like going the doctor. Even if you feel fine (the house is not old and looks ok) they will find something...sooo
Well our deck was not built to code...and had I noticed the problem with our garage door?...the mailbox is leaning...and did I know there was lots of water coming out of the side of the house? (of course I did...I just assumed it was a water feature and later we would have mud wrestling with the neighbors followed by a nature show as the giant mosquitoes hatch then attack...grrrrrr.) So now we have plumbers onsite to be followed I'm sure by some electrician (still waiting on the lights in my sewing-room,) a baker and a candlestick maker (just kidding on that last one....)
With all this going on I've had a difficult time concentrating...I did some random piecing (influenced by the recent posts on the antique and vintage quilt face-book page.)
Halfway through I thought this would be a good piece for the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative...then of course I forgot what I was doing and made it too big....it is that sort of day folks!
My big accomplishment was to change the quilt on the guest bed to a summer-ish quilt.
Add one more...made chocolate chip cookies...
also ate too many of them but that isn't so much of an accomplishment...but they did help...
