Priorities and Goals

As the end of the month approaches, I have to review my priorities. I could spend all day sewing, making quilts, doing embroidery. And if I didn't have a family, pets and home to care for - I would !!

As Monday dawned damp from the Sunday rains, cooler - forecast is for a high of 65 degrees - I need to concentrate on household chores. The laundry is caught up except for a load of sheets and a mattress pad. There's some deep cleaning, like behind the refrigerator. The stuff you put off because it's just not that easy to deal with and is usually time-consuming. Monday was that day. There's no in-between the fun stuff for these chores, or they'd never get done.

I did manage some sewing time at the end of the day.

The binding has been sewn on to the quilt.

This is actually a pretty easy week, going into the holiday weekend. Honey Do is planning on adding Friday for a four-day weekend. Newton will also be home on Monday for another three-day weekend (second one in a row). We have plans to be around the house - pulling up carpet and planting the vegetable garden :)

Thanks for stopping by,

Wishing you a day filled with creativity and productivity.

I love the look of the red quilt all together now. Fabulous quilt, and you moved it right along! We had that super cool day today, and it was so lovely. Rain was yesterday. And it'll be back this weekend. Enjoy that 4-day weekend. I can't remember when I last cleaned behind the refrigerator. LOL
