The Sun Is Shining!!!!!!!!!

And if you live in southwestern Ohio, you KNOW how long it's been since we've had a truly sunny day.

I've done a few things in the sewing room this week. First, I finished piecing the layer cake blocks using the Civil War reproduction fabric I picked up at Valley Quilts last month. Hope to get the "design wall" (aka the dining room table) cleared off to position the blocks. (Why is it everybody in my family dumps their stuff on that table - subject for another blog....) Two nights ago I re-discovered the blocks I made during Bonnie Hunter's workshop last August. I put two inch strips around the letters and sewed them together to make a long, thin wall hanging. Hoping to get that quilted and up this weekend. And lastly, washed, ironed and marked the one yard fabric piece for the machine quilting class tomorrow with Julie Lambert.

My friend, Kathy, was supposed to take that class with me. Doubtful she'll be there as she's been fighting a nasty case of bronchitis all this week.

The quilt class at church is re-scheduled for this Monday night. Hoping it won't be postponed again since the weather guessers are predicting some form of precipitation Sunday/Monday.

Things are looking up: No more appliance wars at home. Michael's doing as well as one can expect for a cranky git who refuses to see the doctor. Andrea's report card is looking great. The monster icicles on our house will get a good zapping today. And after all, it is Friday!

I'll get the fur babies in gear this weekend to pick the Pay It Forward winners. They're not in any hurry right now - both are asleep in the sun spot in the middle of the kitchen floor.
