Play time's over

Didn't seem like I got much done in the sewing room or around the house despite the extra day at home. I finished the binding on the Thimbleberries Sunflower Table Runner and this baby quilt for a co-worker. Very pleased with how it turned out.

Now, it's on to the next project - a secret project and quilting the United Way quilt.

The kittens and I spent about an hour yesterday morning tearing apart the two vacuum cleaners, cleaning them all out and putting them back together again. I've been meaning to do that chore for weeks now since neither one was working to its true capacity. Oddly enough, the kittens were of little help, other than scattering the dust balls.

Met Jill, Linda and Patrice at IHOP on Saturday morning for delightful chat - they're all such nice people and welcomed me into their group. After that, we went on to Best Friends and signed up for our fall quarter classes. All four of us are taking one in November/December called "Not Your Grandmother's Log Cabin". I signed up for Stash Pot Pie as well - thus taking that monthly class for the entire year.

This coming Saturday is the start of the Tri-State Shop Hop. I've already warned my family that I won't be around home much on Saturday or Sunday, so they've been given ample notice. I've already started my shopping list. Michael's in agreement that I should stock up on the items I need to make Christmas gifts. Let's take bets to see if I can stick to the list....NOT!

Tattoo Boy (aka Danny) dropped by the house for a short visit on Sunday and helped us move the fridge back into the house. Michael's tried to hook up the icemaker on that thing, but all it does is leak on the floor and he can't figure out how to fix it. Icemaker aside, I'm pleased to have the good, big fridge repaired and back into the kitchen. The smaller fridge we've been using will now go into the back room for drinks and extra storage. It looks like I'll accompany Danny to orientation at the university on the 17th and 18th. I may take the 19th off as well since that's the day the kittens are scheduled for their surgery.

I'd best get back to the files on my desk and make an effort to at least look like I'm working. LOL

Keep on stitchin'!
