Monday morning checking in

I didn't get much done in the sewing room because I spent a good bit of Saturday working outside and most of Sunday recuperating in my chair! I did get the blocks made from the kit I bought last week. Just have to find a few minutes to lay them out on the bed and arrange them. No design wall so I have to either use the bed or floor. My poor aching body wasn't up to the floor and David was in the bed when I wanted to work on this so it got put aside for another day.

NO cleaning done. But I figured I deserved the day off. At least I didn't go backwards. ALMOST as I made a bit of a mess as I was sewing but I did make myself pick that up before I went to bed last night.

Oh I did get that box of fabric and scraps dealt with so I guess I did do some cleaning. I can now get into all my strip bins and not just the few at the top.

I also worked on some chinese coins for the Heartstrings project. They had an in person and virtual retreat going this weekend. The quilt I make from these blocks will be dedicated to my mom. She should have celebrated her 75th birthday yesterday. You know at one time I thought 75 was REALLY old but now as I near 50 I find it's not so old at all. Happy Birthday, Mama. I miss you every day but on days like yesterday it hurts so much more. You were taken from me WAY too soon.

Sounds like my weekend. Semi productive. Wish I had done more though!

It used to be that I could go out and work in the yarden all weekend and go about my bizness. Now, I spend 3 hours pulling weeds and it takes me 4 days to recuperate! I feel for you.

It sounds like you still had a productive weekend, Nancy. You have been working so hard in the sewing room reorganizing that you deserved the break after all that yard work.

I have taken the day off today once I finished my weekend "hafta" project. My fingers and hands are thanking me.

Doctors Orders:

Take some "in progress" shots of your room. Try to duplicate the previous shots maybe?

I'm so proud of you.
