Last Hurah of the Weekend


I spent yesterday scrubbing baseboards and touching up the paint in the upstairs hallway. Today for an encore I spackled, sanded and painted three closets. I was pretty much done by the time the guys headed off for football practice and settled in to sew some binding and watch a movie with Sydney. I was tempted to head straight to bed as soon as the kids were settled, but I thought it would be nice to do some sewing today. Block 30 was next and didn't look too scary. Just four little nine patches with a log cabin border and some triangle corners. The pattern called for cutting the corners off of the little white strips first, but I thought they might turn out better if I just sewed the white all the way around and then trimmed them down. I'm not sure if it helped or not, but done is the best kind of block of all so I'm calling it good enough.
Kurt was nice enough to take a picture for me. As you can see, he has settled in to watch some football this evening. I keep thinking that I should learn to enjoy football for the sake of being social, but it has just never clicked with me. I'm off to call it a night nice and early tonight. This week looks like it will be a busy one, so I'd better rest now.

Busy lady! What a cute block! What sweet, small nine patches! He had to take your picture to get you out of his way! (LOL) mine does the same thing! Have a great week.

Gosh, I'm impressed that you managed to get all that decorating done during term time, on top of all the family, household and school tasks that you must have had to do. Another cute block, you must be pleased that you managed to get some sewing done as well.

Another cute block completed. How many do you have done so far? I wish you could let me have even just 1/3 of your energy.
