Step 2

After plugging away during the free moments today, I finally finished step 2! I still have a bit of squaring and trimming to do, but decided while I was at it, I should go ahead and cut out step 3. I'm still not happy with my pink/reds, but I'll try to use what I have. If it doesn't work, I can always make a nice baby doll quilt and find something new.

I had a 10 mile run this morning and then went home for a nice steamy shower. I used up the last of the shampoo and was trying to take the cap off to recycle the bottle when it broke and the sharp edge sliced three of my fingers. I sit and cut away day after day with a rotary cutter and then cut myself with a shampoo cap! That takes talent.

I made some progress on my January goal of organizing the kitchen today. I cleared out some more dishes and glassware that we don't need and tidied up two sets of cabinets. Not a huge undertaking, but it's all about baby steps. We'd better have that garage sale soon or the attic and garage will overflow.

NICE day hun! A little sewing....a little running (okay, LOTS in the mind/definition of non-runners)....a little cleaning! NICE!

Isn't it SUCH a good feeling when the house is nice, neat and tidy? I'm just wondering why you don't put those wine (?) glasses on a lower shelf??!?! I mean, don't you use them more than coffee cups??
Happy Saturday
