The title of this post probably sounds a lot nicer than the reality of my day, assuming that you're a reader who knows the Sweat Shop is my sewing haven. Unfortunately, though, I've gotten back to super-cleaning the house, and the Sweat Shop was the room I concentrated my efforts on today. It's such a small room, and it's jam packed with all my stuff, so the furniture rarely gets moved for vacuuming and dusting--and if you're a quilter, you KNOW how much dust comes from textiles. So I did all that and it was a big job, but it's done now for awhile. (And no Roos were sacrificed, nor did I accidentally light anything on fire--woo hooo!)
Once the cleaning was done, I finished stitching down the binding on the red/aqua basket quilt.
I think I mentioned that I'd sorted out my scrap drawers when I talked about bindings yesterday, didn't I? Well, I filled up a box of scraps for you--if you're lucky. If you're a scrappy quilter and would love to add a box of scraps to your stash, leave me a comment telling me you want to be entered. Because of the weight of this box, in order not to bankrupt myself on postage, I need to limit entries to U.S. residents--sorry! Want to take a look inside?
There's all sorts of stuff in there! I'll draw a winner on Monday night and announce the winner on Tuesday's post.
During the last part of the evening, I've been doing a little quilting, and for the past hour or so, Stitch has been very mischevious. He's been trying to get my attention by getting into and onto everything. He's really a cuddly cat, and I think he's telling me it's time to go to bed so I can pet him while I read.
I hope you're enjoying the weekend! I'm glad you could stop by for a little visit.
