This Week

Hi Everyone!

I had one simple goal this week.  To bind Hubble and Bounce.  I've been working on them off and on (Hubble is done) but other things keep cropping up.  

Monday I had a cookie exchange here at my house.  It was fun and we had potluck lunch.

Tuesday I decided to reorganize my quilt room.  In the evening was our night chapter of guild.

Wednesday I got bitten by the pincushion-making bug.  I'm still obsessed, by the way.

Thursday I had "lunch out" with the spouses' club.   We went over to Smithville (home of the ham and other porky items.  Yes, I had a pork sandwich for lunch.  It was called "pork and pinot" and featured pork tenderloin, blueberry, and pinot in an wrap.  It was scrumptious!)  They also have quaint shops including several antique shops (they have great prices!)  Anyway, that burned up a major part of the day.

Right now, the island in my quilt room is a total disaster.  There are bits and pieces of scraps, buttons, thread, twill tape, ric rac, etc. all over from my pinnie making. Plus crushed walnut shells are scattered everywhere as well.  And Easy Street part 4 came out this morning. 

I'm off in an hour or so for morning guild.  We are having a mug rug exchange.

Presents aren't wrapped, cards aren't done, yikes!  Oh well, there isn't much on the calendar for next week.  I'm not panicking, but I sure need to focus myself and not get distracted any further!

Have a great day!


  1. Oh my, you've been so busy! And it's so easy to get distracted this time of year. Hope you can get to Easy Street.....I'll be working on that tonight while catching up on laundry!

  2. Busy, busy, and more busy! Glad you're having fun tho... and that next week you'll be able to Get. Things. Done.
