Wow, I was blown away at how easy it was to “rehome” some no-longer-needed fabrics. The fabric has been boxed up and shipped out. I've got some supplies and notions, as well as a kit or two, that I may "rehome" after we get back from Hilton Head.
You all may remember the fat quarter sale I posted. My fat quarter bundle arrived yesterday … just 3 days from order to delivery … now that is service! I will definitely add them to my list of online shops to frequent. I’m glad to see they included some green in the bundle, since my stash is low on greens.And look what was included with my fabric! I love how they want to follow up on our orders … and that pin! I’ll definitely check them out when I’m shopping online for fabric.
Our garden has not done well this summer, between too much rain this spring, too many stink bugs in our green beans … now this! Talk about adding insult to injury. We’re not sure what has literally mowed down over half our green bean plants … we’re wondering if it might be the raccoon that the neighbor’s seen and that we suspect has already paid us a call.
I’ve been productive this week … each morning, I tackle one or two housekeeping chores. Wednesday it was the stash reorganization, and yesterday it was cleaning the hardwood floors and dusting. Much better than trying to tackle it all in one day … and it leaves plenty of time for needle and thread. I won’t be productive today as we’ll be heading out for a visit with my dad.
Thankfully the temperatures are back up a little from Wednesday when a cold front moved through… it was downright chilly when we went out to check the garden after dinner Wednesday evening. Brrrr I’m not ready for it to get that chilly … cooler yes. But I know what follows … and I’m never, ever ready for the cold of winter.
I hope that whatever you have planned for today includes a little something that will bring some joy!
