I can't believe how much time has passed since I last posted. It seems like forever and a day! Last week I was still working on quilt show wrap-up, this week I'm supposed to be doing the same...but I've been hijacked.
My husband and a good friend have decided that what I REALLY should be doing with my mornings is working out at the gym. I am NOT a fan of gyms, never have been, probably never will be. But both of them think this place is better than the cat's pajamas, so who am I do deny them the pleasure of working me over on a daily basis?
My son tells me that at the end of two weeks I'll feel "better." I was actually feeling pretty good before we started this nonsense. :)
Going to the gym keeps me from the computer in the mornings, and my work has not been getting done. Afternoons were once used for sewing. Instead, I've been using them to try to clear out my garage and find my desk.
Today I couldn't take it any more. I HAVE to get back to my sewing machine. I started with making labels, like this...
I didn't make many, but I'm up to date on the few shows I've entered this year. Like this...
I want to sew, but my table is filled to overflowing with mess. I've loaded the bobbin and threaded the needle. Call me crazy, but I think I'm going to sew a few strips without clearing off any more of this mess. (And if you think this is bad, just be glad that I didn't take the picture yesterday or the day before!!!)
On a more encouraging note, in the evenings I've been working on my Hoffman Challenge. I am VERY happy with my entry so far this year, and I'm truly enjoying the handwork. Hurrah for simple pleasures!
If only I could finish clearing off my desk and get to some serious quilting. Unfortunately it's going to be a while!!
P.S. I've posted the last of the "big" winners on the Best of the Valley blog. Click here to see them all...Enjoy!!
