It feels as though I have a million things to do to get ready for vacation, as well as taking care of all the normal things that need routine attention. I spent much of the evening after work doing some house cleaning so it wouldn't be too horrible for our housesitters. And as I'm typing this, I have two trays of tomatoes roasting in the oven for some future batch of spaghetti sauce--they had to be cooked before we left or they'd just rot on the vines. I'll let them cool overnight and then package them for the freezer tomorrow morning--they can stay there until I can make the rest of the sauce some other time.
I thought I'd take a couple applique pieces on vacation with me, which means prepping the blocks before I go. After some thought, I decided to get the last two Sew Spooky BOM blocks ready, and I finished prepping the first of the two blocks tonight.
I'll try to finish the second one in the next couple evenings along with my other projects. Besides these projects, I have some embroidery blocks to take and a wool project or two, so there's probably more than enough to keep me busy--I always worry I'll run out of stuff to do though. Silly, I know!
Since I planned to clean tonight and didn't want to make a mess of the kitchen, Hubby very kindly ran out for some Chinese fast food. We both had a good laugh at my fortune.
Appropriate, isn't it?! By the way, thank you all for suggesting a few Seattle-area quilt shops. I'm going to mark them on the shop hop brochure to take with me.
Last night I unearthed my dressy tops from the bag they were stored away in and found a couple that will be suitable for the more formal dinners on our cruise. We've decided to compromise with a dressy top for me and a sports jacket and tie for Hubby. Luckily, I had a couple that are washable, because there's really not much time for dry cleaning. So I also did laundry tonight too. I'm kind of surprised it's not later than it is considering how much I've gotten done tonight, but it's still late and I have to get up and go to work tomorrow. Thanks for stopping by!
