Thanks for all the compliments on the finished quilt top in yesterday’s post. I must admit I did no sewing yesterday! We are getting ready for a quick visit from our daughter and grandchildren from Wisconsin. This was not a trip planned very far in advance and they will only be here for about 2 or 3 days they are making a stop on the way to another destination. They should be here this evening unless the driving was too much and they decided to stop along the way for the night. So I was busy getting more grocery’s in the house and doing laundry while Mike was cleaning up the sewing room and stacking tools and things on one side of the room so air mattresses can be laid out on the floor. When he got done with his part I was sweeping and vacuuming all the dust up and then did a wet mop clean up as well before the air mattresses will go down.
I decided seeing as the house was going to be full it was time to clean up the stacks of fabric laying on the cutting table and get things put away – I’m not sure when it was this clean!
While I was digging around in the closet looking for the air mattresses I thought I would take a photo of the two boxes of scraps that still need to be cut into useable scraps – I bet I have enough for 2 or 3 more quilts in here! It is crammed tight – if I take the lids off fabric will pop out like a jack in the box.
I had to water the garden last night and took another photo to show how much the sun flowers have grown. The flowers on that tallest plant are above my head and I’m a little under 5’7” I think the tallest section is over 7 feet tall.
Didn’t have a lot to pick but I do have a handful of zucchini and one that is shaped rather weird – but I’m sure it will taste the same.
I have a post I am scheduling in advance as I know I won’t be on the computer much this week – taking a little time off but I did want to share some blocks that have been sitting aside for awhile and I want to try to figure out something to use them for – well not be made into big quilts but something small. I think I will have it posted on Thursday. I will be back on Saturday most likely. Have a good week everyone.
