School started this week, and I'm not there! It felt funny and weird, but I'm adjusting. I've been busy sewing and doing various household and church tasks and family stuff. Life is busy, even without a full-time job! The only thing I haven't had much time for lately is reading.
green scraps and APPLES, in progress for Wrap-a-Smile
A while back I was given a box of fabrics to use for charity quilting. They were ALL apple fabrics. Red apples, green apples, apples on black, apples on white.. you name it, they were in the box. I've been using them mostly for quilt backs. I'm tired of apples! But I still have several pieces to use... it was nice to get free fabric! But I hope next time there is a little more variety. Uffda.. I have apples coming out my ears.
Lotto blocks that I won.. haven't had time to sew them together yet, but here's my start at a plan.
another quilt in the works.. columns are made, but not yet sewn together. The mess on the table is my cleaning-in-progress.. trying to organize things into bins and whatnot. Big job.
All our appliances are aging and slumping at once.. this week we got new washer, dryer, and dishwasher! It's fun! I especially like the washer/dryer, well.. because the dishwasher isn't working yet.. hubby needs to buy a new hose or something. So I don't yet know how great it is. I'm looking forward to how quiet it will be.
school supplies for UMCOR that we collected at church.. I went in and organized them into kits. They'll be sent to children around the world
a little collection bank I set up at church - to raise funds for a project in our area that helps women transition out of homelessness
Last night we had dinner at hubby's parents' place.. with a cousin from another state. She and her husband were visiting - last time hubby and cousin saw each other was 1988. It was a nice evening.
P.S. Are you still reading? Then I'll tell you that today I finished the binding on the quilt for Kandee, and tomorrow I will give it to our delivery person!
