This morning was a bust as far as accomplishing anything. I’ve cleaned chicks’ vents – I guess it’s all that long fuzz on those little bantams but I’ve never had vent issues before . . aren’t you glad to know that? 🙂 I’ve dealt with the iron, I’ve done laundry, I’ve fixed lunch and I intend to spend the rest of the afternoon sewing. About an hour before dark, I’ll go work in the garden so that by the time I’m about to drop dead, it’s time to take a shower and knit for a few minutes before bed time.
Vince took off this afternoon but he had to go buy landscape timbers for the strawberry patch and he had to buy a printer. We looked at them yesterday but he had a Staples gift card at home so he didn’t want to buy it without the card. By the way, they’ll take $50 off some of their new printers if you bring in an old printer. It doesn’t even have to work! We had one that I think was a free one when you bought a computer . . from years back and I can’t remember if it had quit working or if it was too slow or what the deal was but there’s no telling how long we’ve had it and how many times we’ve moved it so Vince took it in to get a $50 discount. Just goes to prove that you should never throw anything away!
I did manage to get the first border on the March Color Palette quilt.
The pieced border is now pieced but I’m switching over to the other quilt for the rest of the afternoon.

Beautiful!! I cleaned my room this morning. Took 3 hrs to rearrange the walk in (that you couldn’t walk in ) closet. I am tired.. I don’t know how you do it ?? I am going to sit and quilt for a while….and then tackle the rest of the house. Wanna leave it clean when I leave to go truckin.

With a $50 gift card and a $50 trade-in the printer shouldn’t have cost him much out-of-pocket….and trust Vince to HAVE a printer for trade-in.
I haven’t accomplished everything I wanted to yet today either…load of dishes in the dishwasher, picked up some clutter, supper in the oven, grocery shopping, picked out border for the 2 QOV quilts. I should get the borders made yet today so I can finish getting them on over the weekend.

ok – I hit send entirely too soon – MY day – morning – urological assoc – and yes, I have a cyst – so tiny we couldn’t find it for over 1/2 hour – technician had to go read the prior xrays to figure out where it was supposed to be. Still hasn’t changed in size – good news!
Came home – inhaled lunch – headed to eye dr. – all ok there except I have beginning cataracts (OH Joy – NOT!) – however eye pressure still the same – high – no damage. Cataracts – nothing they can do at this stage.
BTW – anyone who tells you anything about the Golden Years – needs to turn around and bend over – I have a boot that will help them on their way!
Now Onward to quilt! Yeehaw!!!! – Sunglasses and all!!!!

The quilt is spectaular, Judy, and is one of my favorites. Love the black divides meandering throughout. Great work.
Love the quilt and the black sashing in random paths is great! Do you have pale yellow or white between the other blocks?
Just had to commiserate on the vent cleaning….I’ve been doing the same thing! We had some chicken trauma with 22 of our 26 chicks arriving DOA…I’ve been an overly vigilant chicky-mama this week.
Stunning!!! This quilt should be in your next book!
