It’s Sunday evening. I’ve had a great weekend. Nothing exciting---that’s my kind of weekend. Grocery shopped and did the Wal-mart run Saturday morning. We don’t write a lot about grocery shopping, but that food doesn’t just magically appear in the cabinets. I like going early Saturday mornings before the crowd comes. It’s a little more peaceful that way. I had a bridal shower to go to Saturday afternoon. I wasn’t looking forward to it, but, at least for me, that’s when I have the most fun. It was really nice.I played in the garden, the rains have really made a difference. Don and took a 13 mile bike ride, I was pretty useless after that.
Not a lot of quilting going on, but don’t feel bad for me….I really worked on cleaning the sewing room out. Organization is the name of the game. I’m about half way through. I’ve got a hefty garbage bag full of old fabric—wools, corduroy, Halloween costume scraps that are going to St. Vinnie’s (our version of Good Will). As stupid as it sounds, I always kind of disloyal parting with fabric---any kind of fabric--- knowing the love I had for it. But after reading others journal entries and responses to mine, I’ve gotten unsentimental and parted with things I know I’d never use. And after all, maybe there is someone out there with a genuine use for these things. And it’s just wrong to hang on to something you’ll never use.
Among the cleaning I found these blocks.
When there was a quilt shop in town, she had a program for a while. For $2.00 you received a Ziploc bag of fabric squares that she had made up and you had to create a 12 inch block and return it by the end of the month. Your name was entered and there was a drawing to win the blocks. Of course the month I did it, the fabric colors weren’t exactly my favorites, but it was still fun. I won---- it’s always fun winning—my block was the first one in the second row. What will I do with the blocks??? I have no idea, but I loved seeing the workmanship of others. I have enough fabric to create a couple more blocks, which I keep all together with the squares. Maybe one day…..
I've got another workweek ahead, so I better turn in.
1. A weekend for afternoon naps
2. A husband that helps around the house
3. birch trees in the woods
