I reported yesterday that there would be a sports marathon at Chez Nana yesterday … and there was. My plan was to ensconce myself in my recliner, quilting while watching the games … and that is where the change occurred. While I was out walking yesterday morning with Lois, I got a text from DD asking if she and T#2 could come over and go through the stuff they’ve stored in our basement, bagging up what was going to charity. When DD and her family moved into their new home 4 years ago, they had to put a lot of their stuff into totes and store them in our basement as their basement was finished, giving them the tiniest of space for storage. Our basement is unfinished, so we had plenty of room to spare. It was a lot of work, going through everything, sorting stuff into what to keep and what to give away … but it was also a lot of fun. Any time spent with some of my favorite people is always fun … and oh the memories as we went through everything.
I’m really pleased with how they’re coming together. I’m not sure how I’ll be quilting this little quiltlet, as those strips are about 1/4” wide … which means that if I stitch through them, I’ll be stitching through seam allowances, too.
Today my plans are for a little more sports … the Cardinals play again, but the Blues have a short break before they begin their first round of the playoffs on Thursday. Thankfully the baseball game is an early game so there will still be plenty of afternoon and wonderful weather to spend outside. I think I’ll devote my afternoon to my Martha Washington’s Flower Garden … especially since stitching out on the deck sounds like a perfect way to spend this delightful spring afternoon. Hopefully I’ll have a picture of my progress to share next time.
I hope that whatever you have planned for today includes a little something that brings you joy ... have a great day!
