Today I started working on the laundry basket full of smaller pieces that didn't go back onto the shelves. These are older pieces than aren't full fat quarters or are odd sized. I'm cutting them up into usable size pieces using Bonnie Hunter's system. This is a work in progress as I'm eager to get back
Last week was an interesting one to say the least - a perfect example of the "rule of threes". The computer desk chair became hazardous to sit in, followed the next day by the vacuum giving up the ghost. About that same time we decided our backs could no longer stand sleeping on our old mattress. These things happened the day after I did our taxes and discovered we needed to pay after all. Much money was spent, so it is a very good thing I've taken a "no buy" pledge.
This coming week should be interesting also, as I've been called for jury duty. I need to report to the courthouse at 8:15 Monday morning, which means I need to leave home by 7:15 to be assured of a parking space. No needles or scissors of any kind may be brought into the courthouse, including knitting needles. I will need to find a very good book to read. I hope to be called the first day, whether or not I actually serve on a jury, because then I'd be done for the week.
Tomorrow I'm going to work on the little quilt I cut out before all this cleaning and organizing started. I figure I deserve to reward myself. Hopefully I'll have a finished top to show tomorrow night!
