Well . . my progress report is quite simple. I have not turned on the sewing machine! We are getting a lot done around here. I’m following Vince around saying “Can you please fix this?” “Thank you!” “Can you please fix that?” “Thanks!” “Will you please carry these chairs upstairs?” “Great!” I think he’s about at the end of his rope with my honey do list so I’m in the sewing room now and . . I’m not sure where he is and that’s probably how he wants it.
I’m kinda halfway waiting on the mail lady and hoping for a package from Simply Sock Yarn and trying to figure out exactly how I’ll get it from the mail box to the sewing room without being caught red handed bringing more yarn into the house. The thought crossed my mind to run down to the mail box and then stop and hide the box behind a tree in the woods and go back and get it after dark! Oh yea! I hear the tractor running. I might be able to pull this off if he’s busy on the tractor when I come back with a package! 🙂
I will update this page when I get something to report as far as sewing goes.

I just don’t see you going out after dark to retrieve that package from behind a tree. Maybe Vince is so wore out from all the honey-do stuff that he won’t even notice…or so enthralled in playing with his tractor….

Oh my goodness, that is hilarious. I had this vivid picture in my mind of you hiding in the woods, waiting for Vince to go by away from the house, and then tip-toeing the package into the house as quickly as you could.
Too funny. We must always consider all of our options. Going out after dark to retrieve it would not be on my option list! 🙂
Ranch Wife says
You’re NOT bringing the yarn into the house. You’re bringing it into the sewing room. 🙂 All clear!
I did not get anything done today either. Oh well!
My day was quilt related although not much sewing was accomplished. Our lqs had a wonderful presentation today with Aunt Pitty Pat. You might remember the character from Gone With The Wind. She was the older woman that Melanie lived with while Ashley was away at war. She was dressed in the period costume today and did a wonderful presentation on Friendship Quilts, many that we remember from the different periods of our history, ending with the Quilts of Valor. I am so enthusiastic about doing one now! I have a good friend whose son is with the Marines in Afghanistan now and I’d like my first one to be for Alex. Since I haven’t learned to machine quilt yet and knew I couldn’t afford to pay to have them taken to a long arm quilter, I had worked on other projects for friends and family here. On the website, I found that they have volunteer long arm quilters who will quilt them for you. Now I can get busy on some QOV’s. The letters she read from soldiers who had received them were heart-wrenching. Hope other quilters will join me. It’s incredible how many of the quilts have already been received and so many are needed. I did come home and work on flying geese for the final border on the Round Robin I’m doing with a group of online quilting buddies. On to putting those together and adding that border so it’s ready to take to our retreat in October for the big reveal.
