    I decided to forgo cleaning the house on the three day weekend and finish some of my projects. It resulted in a wonderful Holiday-sipping on ice tea and eating goodies is better than cleanning any old day. Moosegirl

    Great projects. I totally agree about the heck with cleaning, just quilt. Sounds like a wonderful way of thinking! Going to give it a try tomorrow. Thanks for the inspiration.

    I say go with the mood. How come I'm never in the mood to clean? Love your projects. The dragon flys are killer!

    To paraphrase Joan Rivers about cleaning, why bother when you have to do it all over again in 6 moths?
    Your projects are wonderful!

    Love your projects especially the dragonflies table runner! I have just the spot for that runner in my bedroom! I would agree that quilting your projects was a lot more fun than cleaning anyday too!

    Love the dragonflies. I wanted a smaller house so less cleaning. Just bought a bigger house - means more quilting room!

    My kind of housekeeper. I only clean when the scraps are about ankle deep. I love your dragonfly table runner. Other projects are great, also.
