Wasted the day...
but at least I was successful! I went through a huge back log of quilt magazines looking for my Quiltmaker Nov/Dec 2012 issue. I knew I had prepared the pieces for the PP Polar Bear so it had to be in my sewing room somewhere, right? I finally found it inside a large Manila envelope with the paper pieces. Good grief what was I thinking? Now I am too exhausted to work on it.

At least you found it so now you can sew on it tomorrow. Did you get rid of some of your old mags then? I have a lot I should go through too and take them into my friend's church. they quilt every week there. I am actually going to have 2 days to sew in between work. Training on Tuesday off to Fargo til Fri nite. Have fun with your polar bear.

I do that same thing - always put it someplace safe then can't find it when I want to use it! Glad you were able to find the pieces you were looking for - that helps.

spending a day perusing quilt magazines is never a waste ;-)

I know what you meant. Glad you found it.

I wasted the day by going out and buying a new washing machine. It has been acting up for some time, but died today.

Can't tell you how many times I've done something like that. I made two quilts using the Yellow Brick Road pattern a few years back so I know I had the pattern; but could I find it when I wanted to make another one last month? No, of course not. So, I had to fork over another $8 for a new pattern.

I had to pick up my machine that had been repaired. It was so beautiful that I stopped at a garden store, so there went the plans for sewing today. The flowers do look lovely.

I had a very productive day. I caulked for 3-3-1/2 hours, got dressed, stripped the bed, washed mattress pad. Washed sheets, pillow cases and three loads of clothes. Swept half the floors, mopped the kitchen. Made homemade pizza, sew on some binding, put away clothes.
Tomorrow I will finish the other floors and laundry. I also hope to finish sewing the rest of the binding on my quilt so I can start another. Will be going to bed soon. I'm tired.
