    Okay, so my last 2 weeks have been lost to doctor visits and not feeling particularly well, so today must be attacked with gusto. I feel somewhat better, just knowing my heart is okay. Anyhow, here is my list of To Do: Finish 3 Quilts for Kids that just need batting, backing, & quilting. Make 6 Christmas table runners from a new pattern I can't resist. Start some machine embroidery for a Christmas project, do 2 weeks worth of laundry, Make a couple handbags my DDIL (and myself) have been requesting. That should take me to noon :roll: :lol: :-D Now what are you guys doing today? Oh, and my DDIL & I went to a perennial nursery yesterday and I got about 30 plants to insert into the ground at some point.

    I wish my goals for the day involved sewing. I am cleaning my kitchen (and fridge, I hate cleaning the fridge). And I have two big RubberMaid totes in the entry way that are filled with shoes...I'm going through them and getting rid of what I can (one of them is JUST DH's combat boots...*sigh*).

    BUT all of the cleaning and organizing I've been working on does eventually LEAD to sewing. I've been puttering away in the basement, organizing and sorting and throwing away so much crap, with the goal of having a functional dedicated sewing space/safe play area for the kids. This way, the kids and mommy can BOTH go to the play room...they get their fun, I get mine :) And it gets my sewing machine (and all things related) off of my kitchen table (which explains why my kitchen needs cleaning...LOL). One of those big bins from above will hopefully be emptied and used to store batting. :) The fridge just needs to be cleaned. Nothing about sewing in that one...

    I have put away my current project and told myself that I WILL NOT work on it (or anything else!) until I get my space completed. It's keeping me motivated, because let's face it...who wants to clean a basement?? :lol:

    Meeting with the former owners of our new home to talk about this and that. Than heading back to Iowa to paint and repair old house for sale. Unfortunately that all does not include any sewing although I did experiment with the arrowhead block in the current issue of Quiltmaker during the football game yesterday (we lost!). Cute block and so easy!!!

    I know what you mean. My garage has all the boxes and bins I had to drag out of the basement when I had my flood 2 weeks ago. They are bins of scraps that I need to make a decision on. They only bother me when I try to pull the truck into the garage and worry about crushing one of the bins. Solution: stay home and keep the garage door closed.

    I found a sticky note on my sewing boudoir door from my DGD. It says that when I am ready to sit down and sew, I have to call her because she has to finish her projeckt. Guess what I am doing today! :-P

    No sewing here today. We have to finish cleaning up from a garage sale. 90% of leftovers were packed up and moved to the shop building yesterday but we were soooo tired that we quit. Really just a few things to pack or put away and then folding up the tables and getting my cutting table back in the sewing room.

    Wasn't a very busy Fri/Sat but we managed to make about $350 on stuff we didn't want or didn't have room for so that's good! The neighbors who helped made a fair amount too.

    So maybe I need more fabric???????????
