29 days until Christmas! ARGH!
I'm starting to feel the pressure a little--can you tell?!
It seems that most of today, I worked on quilting the large trees quilt. I finally got the binding attached, but I still have to hand sew it down--that will be a project for tomorrow. Along with cooking Thanksgiving dinner.
About the only other things I accomplished today were shampooing the carpets--just the traffic areas that were starting to show some spots--and doing a little dusting. Oh, and hard boiling some eggs--gotta have those to show off my new egg plate--and making spinach dip. Isn't it funny how these obligatory holiday favorites MUST BE MADE to avoid a family revolt? Tradition!
I forgot to tell you about the goofy thing I did the other day. After I got home from the quilt shop on Saturday, I hurried to pin the tree quilt. I normally set my tables up on the patio to pin quilts, so I needed to get it done before it started to get dark. After I finished and put everything away, I got ready to go grocery shopping, but I couldn't find my reading glasses. Anywhere! I looked and looked all over the house three or four times--no glasses! Hubby even hauled his lazy self out of the recliner where he was planted, watching sports of some type, to help look.
Finally, I retraced my steps--in detail. And, yes, I found my glasses--in the funniest place ever! I keep a plastic tool box full of quilting supplies, including the clips I use to hold quilts taut on the table when I pin. Just on a whim, I looked inside and there were my glasses! INSIDE the Ziploc bag that holds my clips, inside the tool box. How goofy is THAT?! I'm just amazed I found them at all! Hubby sure got a good laugh out of it, as you can imagine!
I took a couple quick photos of the quilt--just to prove I've really DONE something today and not just lounged around eating bonbons and reading quilting magazines on my first vacation day.
I still need to go back and add a little quilting inside the trees, but I'll do that tomorrow too--I don't think it will take long.
Tomorrow's going to be a busy day, and it's time for my beauty sleep, so I'll say goodnight. I'm glad you could stop by!
