Going Green

Thanks Jan for sharing this so I could have another addiction! I now have 4 great (pretty) bags to take shopping with me. Sure is nice not having to deal with those plastic grocery bags any more!!

Latest...and Next

Here's the fabric I purchased for Parker's quilt. He wanted green, and green it is! Can't wait to get it made and put in his 'new' room. Should go great with the curtains that will be 'McGyvered' from tab panels and the fabric for his bed skirt and shams.

Here's a little something I threw together. Even though it doesn't look it, it's SQUARE...optical illusion I guess. The front is made entirely of fat quarters that have been resting patiently for some time now...waiting for the perfect project. The yellow was more than a fat quarter and that was also used for the backing/binding.

Look what I found at the Farmer's Market!! Those absolutely yummy peas, along with some fresh broccoli (also found at the FM), went great with flank steak and salad for dinner last night. Unfortunately, we each only had a baby size serving...I had to share!

Carpet at LAST

We are finally getting our carpet next week! Hooray!! That means this week will be spent getting ready. Bookcases need emptied, bedrooms need emptied, living & dining room furniture needs stashed in the family room & kitchen eating area. Who knows...we'll probably have to put stuff in a bathroom or two!! Monday will be 2 bedrooms, hall, stairs, living & dining rooms. Then Thursday is the other 2 bedrooms.

So...before everything is moving back, baseboards & windows will be getting cleaned. It will be soooo nice to have new carpet AND a completely clean home!!

Not much in the sewing/knitting area done last week. My Mother's in the hospital and I've made several 2 hour trips to visit.

This past weekend brought TNNA to Columbus. Kendra & I met up with a ravelry friend for dinner Saturday. (she went with several on Friday night and went to an event with them) Then yesterday we headed back to the convention center and 'helped' a ravelry friend (who owns a yarn shop) by standing in line to get books signed by the authors. Lunch again with Jess. It was really great to finally put a 'real' face on them.

I did purchase fabric for Parker's quilt last week. Unfortunately, it's still sitting there uncut. At this point I think I'll wait until my new studio is put together to start on it.
