I was expecting a busy first half of the week … and I wasn’t disappointed … it was busy, just not in the way I was expecting. DD added a second shift on Monday to cover for a co-worker, had signed T#1 and T#2 up for a field trip to the Christian radio station Tuesday afternoon and had a hair appointment yesterday afternoon, so I was to stay late to watch the littles. Oh, I stayed late all right … and I watched the littles … but because DD has pneumonia.
DSIL is off today and will be on mama and kiddo duty, so I have the morning “off”. In fact, other than a Prime Timers lunch at church later this morning, I’ve got the whole day free. It would be the perfect opportunity to get out and prune my knockout roses and butterfly bush … or I could stitch. Hmmm, decisions, decisions.
We were without internet and television for about 18 hours yesterday … that meant no email or blogs. Thankfully it was restored by the time I got home from DD’s
I’ve put together my shopping list for our stop at Homestead Heart on our way to Columbia tomorrow … fabrics for Pam Buda’s Sew-Along. I’ve never done one before, and while I have always wanted to, I never seemed to find one that I thought I’d like in time to be able to participate. Her Market Day will be a small quilt (30”x30”), so it shouldn’t be a burden on top of all the other projects I’ve got going on.
Speaking of Pam Buda quilts, I oohed and aahed over Lesley’s beautiful Stillwater Creek quilt (she’s the one who gave me the heads up about Pam’s SAL) … she emailed me and offered to send me her pattern. Aren’t bloggers the best?
Tomorrow is Worldwide Quilting Day … alas, I may not be quilting, but I do plan to spend some time with my needle and thread … basting pieces on my Texas Star will be the perfect way to kill time between the Ts’ events.
Have a terrific Thursday!
