Now on to other things....PATIENCE!...Patience is something that I do not have!!! I can remember as a child that my grandmother would always tell me "Be Patient" and I would say "You know that I can't!" LOL! As you know I had to move my frame out to the new house to make room in here for my new couch and chair. Using it out there would not be a problem but first there was the drywall. All of the sanding and dust from that just makes too big of a mess for me to quilt up there until that is finished. I have a few quilts that I really need to get done! Trust me I know how important it is to get all of that stuff done so that we can move on to something else in the house but that just really messed my plans up! So then, the other day...I walked out to the house to take some boxes and I swear if Richard didn't have the stairs taken apart!!! See we only had temporary stair treads up there until we were ready to put the "real" ones down. Well, he didn't tell me that he was going to do that NOW! LOL! Imagine my shock when I walked out there and there was not a way for me to get upstairs!! So until he gets the staircase completely finished, I can only stand in the living room and stare up at my lonely quilt frame and a lot of my quilting supplies! :( Last night I asked him how long it would be and he said "maybe another 2 weeks!" EEKK! Don't get me wrong, I love the fact that he is working on the staircase and he has worked so hard making each and every piece of them himself, but I WANT TO QUILT!
So meanwhile, I have been working on bindings that need to be done. I finished the binding on the sailboat quilt. And during the evenings I am working on the binding of a huge flannel quilt. I don't work on it very long at a time because it is so hot with that thing on my lap.
I am still in the process of cleaning, sorting, packing and throwing away a bunch of stuff! I didn't realize that we had so much stuff. I have a bunch of stuff boxed up and sitting next to the front door that needs to go upstairs in the new house (but I can't take those out until I have stairs!) LOL! There are things like trophies, books and odds and ends that the boys can do without until we move in the house later in the summer (hopefully). I also have a bunch more of my quilting things boxed up and ready to go out there like, batting scraps, kits, and more UFO's.
So while I was in my bedroom cleaning out my closet I took a photo of my bed. I know that is probably silly but I just love the quilt that is on there. It is faded and well used but it is so comfy. It has been washed a million times and has that "crinkly" I love them when they crinkle up. I also took this photo of the stack of quilts that is in my bedroom too! I try to keep them stacked neatly but that is near impossible. I really need to go through and refold them all to keep out permanent wrinkles, maybe I will get to that in a day or too.
I washed and dried this one that I finished the binding on a few days ago. I is nice and crinkly too. I am pleased with how it washed up.
Back to cleaning and packing...I am in the process of sorting through my romance novels. Some I am boxing up and they will go to the new house and some I am getting rid of. So it takes a while to pick and choose. I have a huge pile that I will take to the bookstore and trade in for "store credit"
