The time is here.....




....for many things. Yeah! I finally FEEL like going into the sewing room. I am still torn about going to a one day retreat or going to my daughter (who MUST need her mom as she calls here everyday!!! :) ) but I have begun to get my things together nonetheless. I have decided that there is NO WAY I will start another project untill I get something finished. But the "rules" to this retreat are to use your stash. So... I am using my stash. When I was in Ohio this summer, I bought 12 cotton tea towels in Berlin. The poor folks had a fire and all of their stuff was fire damaged. I bought this load of towels all brown with stinky, smelly smoke. My grandma nearly fell over when I told her I needed to wash them in her machine! Cringing all the way she supervised so that the smoke in the towels wouldn't mess up her machine! Gotta love my 91 YO grandma! Anyways, I've decided that I am going to finally use those towels and the bazillion tea towel patterns I have. I picked fabrics last night and after I pay bills...ISH!...I will begin to transfer to Heat n Bond. I am also going to take the birthday banner for my brother. I have a ton of transfering, cutting and bonding to get done before Friday because on Saturday I just want to spend the time doing hours and hours of machine blanket stitch. My goal is to finish everything on Saturday. I just don't want anything else looming over my head that needs finished.

The time is also here to beging the repairs on this house. We have all the estimates and today they do the duct work. I will schedule the fireplace later today and by the end of March we will be on the road to being house poor, but in good repair!

I'm looking forward to what you do with the tea towels. Hope the home repairs go okay!

Well it's Saturday morning and I'm wondering if you've met your goals so far.

How can smoke ruin a washing machine? I think I love your grandma!

That's an impressive list of things to do -- how'd you make out?

I feel for you - good luck with your repairs. We just finished having the roof and siding repaired at the Marietta house and heard from the realtor that the Condo was cold and the thermostat was showing a malfunction so I've got a repairman going out there on Wednesday. I wish this condo would sell already!
