    I spent the day at my new DF's house. She is a new quilter but has taken both of my classes. I went to her house & we were gonna spray baste on her wall her quilt. We did it in her garage but she didn't have any newspaper. I should have taken some of mine. (DH & I have saved it for starting the fires in the wood-burning stove in Brady.) Anyway we tried to do it w/trash bags. Do not ever try that! It was awful! We moved it to her kitchen island & redid it there. It was fun!

    Bev, I spray basted yesterday, too. It was just a long narrow table runner so I did it on my dining room table with just a sheet for protection. How much overspray can there be? Well----a lot! I noticed a few glass things on my hutch looked sticky so I washed them; notice the hutch was sticky so I polished that; that made the rest of the furniture in the dining room look "unpolished" so I did that; made the other glass things look dull so washed them. Three hours later I was too pooped to quilt my runner!!! Moral of this story: when in doubt, cover everything. But at least my dining room is clean LOL.

    Jan that's hilarious and the story of my life. On labor day, I cleaned up my quilting stuff and reorganized some of my stash and ufos, and wouldn't you know, that got me excited about a runner and placemat set I'd been working on for my mom. Supposed to be done in time for her birthday (August 29th), but just didn't have the desire to even look at it, let alone finish it. Now that I'm caught up, and almost ahead in the 30s FW, I have been working on this project. All are done, just need to finish the second border (which is cut), and they will be ready for basting.

    LOL..but the satisfaction of a clean dining room...priceless

    My sewing space was nice and tidy...pulled out a project from 2" Christmas squares. Need 36 checkerboard blocks with sashing to make a sofa quilt for the Holidays..started thinking about the patriotic scraps I have so dug into them while I started trimming small scraps into usable sizes...no longer neat and tidy, but did get the ironing board cleaned off to iron the backing for the big mini quilt...took it to LQS for quilting this morning.

    A nice squishy was in the mail box...thanks Nina Sue..a perfect selection for this farm wife...now what to make with it...something special for sureName:  774_happy_homestead1_kindlephoto-2745618.jpg

    You are very welcome, OksewGlad...that fabric just yelled out your name in the LQS. Good luck working in your LQS; if I ever needed help on a quilt and lived in the area, I would go in to you for help!

    Honchey, I hope you got your package also!

    First full day of family here; the kids got so much done. They unloaded the travel trailer by one today. We washed all the bedding and dishes and pans after that. DD and I fixed supper this evening. We are all so tired, its an early night here. So much to do tomorrow...that will wait until tomorrow. A million laughs with DGS and Mega the cat going up and down the hallway. Good night all.

    The little on point top with the little 4 patch posies is for some young teenager who literally owns nothing..I hope she loves it to death..I have a twin to this one in the works..

    I'm not sure of a name...I was inspired by an antique quilt...I'm thinking the 9P's were 2 1/4" made with 1 1/4" pieces...my internet is slow tonight...I'll try later to share the antique quilt..

    Like I said slow internet...can only see your cute thread catcher, Honchey...will catch them tomorrow...

    Love that Irish Chain Bev! How did you like teaching the Jelly Roll Race Quilt Class? Were all your students successful in finishing their quilts???

    Lovely Irish Chain, Dublb.

    According to DD at breakfast table I am 'hoarder' of mass proportions. I told her I would live ;happy' while still alive...and if I prized my things, they would remain 'my things'! She could not understand why I got mad over it...guess she has a lot to learn yet. Her DF has massive amount of garden tools and I have my quilting fabrics and tools.

    I am allowing her to do all the breakfast dish washing by herself! Oh, I am a bad Mom.

    Honchey, your package has been delivered today....I hope it finally made it on the second try....this time to NC.

    I don't think I am a hoarder even tho I have massive amount of fabric, doll supplies and painting supplies. These are the things that I enjoy and make me happy. all the rooms and hallways in my house are clear of crafts. you wouldn't know I do so many things. I have seen hoarding where you can't even't get to the bed lol....or the bathroom lol. Periodically, I go through drawers and my supplies and if I am not using it, I donate it. I have donated all my clay things as I lost interest, ovens clay tools etc. Then lace and spools of ribbon and things pertaining to dolls and just keep what I will definitely use. I do this also with my clothing. I don't keep stuff that doesn't fit anymore, except one outfit with the tag still on it. I will fit into that by next year ahhahahahahhahah
