I knew I needed to clean the kitchen and since I was busy this spring with a consulting job, spring cleaning did not happen. When I looked around the room I noticed how dusty everything was that was on top of the cabinets. In our little house, with no dining room, that is the only place I have to display anything (doesn't seem so little now that I'm in cleaning mode). So yesterday I climbed on top of the countertop and cleaned everything. Rearranged a few of the top cabinets while I was up there. Boy! did my legs and knees ache last night.
Oh yeah - and there are now 2 pans of lasagna in the freezer. Loving my freezer!! Gonna put a couple quiche in there today.
I posted about my guild's Christmas party on Tuesday. Once again, here are the blocks in the groups as I arranged them for our lottery drawing.
I failed to take my camera to the meeting. They looked much prettier hanging in the meeting room pinned onto the big pieces of background fabric that went with each group.
...and the final group.
Here is one of the finished Green Bag Lady bags that I made for our winners to carry their loot in. I counted this fabric "out" last week.
While eating my dessert, I noticed that my block didn't look like the other four hanging on the board. See it, top right?
Our BOM coordinator didn't notice either. Oops! - so I decided I would have to get it back from whoever own the block and fix it for her.
Well, I won the blocks!
Then, I won the Civil War FQ!
Then our president handed those of us on committees a little gift - scissors. Aren't they cute?
After all the drawings, we played a sewing trivia game. Do you know who invented the sewing machine? Well, luckily we had one of the guild's founders at our table who was also a whiz at trivia.
We answered 20 out of 24 questions correctly and each won a FQ. Each table was decorated with rolls of 12" fabric squares that we could take home, too. Surprised that I selected the batiks?
Today I pack up my Viking that I use for quilting so that it can go in for an overdue cleaning. What are your plans for today?
