A Day Off


I actually have today off from work. It's the only day in about 14 days. Memorial Day has passed and most of the schools are finished for the year this week so we'll be in full tourist mode before I know it.

I slept in so the block is late being posted. Sorry, I just couldn't resist the extra time in bed. I actually was up at 8 am but Clutch and I have been couch cuddling and deciding what we'd like to do today.
First on my list is to spread out the Sally Post quilt on this beautiful sunny day and take the best pictures I can. I may wait to post the next Nancy Page Magic Vine block and a couple of Midget Blocks until later tonight when the sun goes down. I'm also going to do an all out search of the internet for some of the P&B background fabric for the Shipshewana Amish Mystery Quilt. If I don't find anything today, I'll beg Teresa for another piece off what she has. No more waiting. My fingers are just itching to get going on that quilt again.
I've got some picking up and organizing to tackle. It's amazing how fast a disaster appearance can creep up in your house when you're in a drop and go mode.
I'm working on a friends Round Robin quilt and would like to cut out the pieces for my round. It is just beautiful and screams her name at first glance. She's going to love it!
I have two huge bins of antique lace I was going to list on ebay but I'm not sure it's really bringing in it's deserved value so I might just do some sorting. I am going to list a bunch of Coldwater Creek clothes, Earth shoes, some purses and I have a really rare antique quilt kit I think I'm going to part with. The finished quilt was pictured on page 30 of Merikay Waldvogel's Patchwork Souvenirs of the 1933 World's Fair. There are two beautiful, tall vases of flowers. It is drop dead beautiful and I paid a lot for the kit several years ago.

I placed my first order at a couple of Etsy shops. That could be a dangerous place. So many creative people with beautiful things to sell.

Silverware Holder

I bought an antique fork bag from my Daddy's old company,

Mini Pincushion

a tiny pincushion,

Pavlinka Matryoshka Doll

a beautiful Martyushka doll

Spool Dollies

Spool Dollies2

and a little family of Spoolies. These little babies could get as addictive as my Hitty doll is.

Also on the list are to put in at least two sections of dock, finish raking around the deck and take a trip to Renee's House of Quilting in Williamsburg to buy my second Aunt Philly's toothbrush rug needle because I lost the first one before I even started a rug! Considering the price of gas right now maybe I'll just order it from Aunt Philly.

If I'm going to get anything done I better wrap this up and get moving.

    Glad you got to sleep in! Sounds like you have a busy day ahead of you. I would have had to set my alarm 3 hours ahead to get it all accomplished! You deserve a good rest!
