A good friend arrives tomorrow for a long weekend. We don't have much planned, just relaxation, a walk on the beach, a walk to Starbucks and some good food. I'm leaving all of my sewing stuff in the usual disarray but I WILL clean before she gets here.
And before anyone says, "She's coming to see you, not the house, you don't need to clean,"this is what I need to beg of ya'all: never ever tell me not to clean. That is my natural inclination, believe me. I use friends' visits as motivation to get done what NEEDS to be done. So if you are ever coming to visit, never say "oh, you don't need to clean." Please, please say "get cleaning." Ya'all don't want me to get buried beneath the cat hair do you?
By the way, have been getting quilting done on Fruit Punch. Didn't take long for me to give up on quilting in 1/16" from the edge of the letter. I've done that before on my letters using a bigger needle and perle cotton, but I want to use quilting thread. So I've switched to orange (red was too visible on the yellow) and am now quilting in ditches. I want the letters to really stand out, not the quilting.
If you haven't already checked out this month's edition of The Bent Needle, I highly recommend you do so, since the topic is scraps. Right down my crumby alley...
I'm outta here. Won't be logging in til next week sometime. Ya'all take care.
