I am on a roll...................

Just visiting some other blogs and came upon one that is doing a give away. It is at Nikki's Blog. Go and visit her if you get a chance and get in on her blog adventures.
Came home and made potato soup---my absolute favorite easy meal. DH had one of those pocket thingy meals. He likes them, and it was easy. I am on call tonite, so anything easy will do. I keep thinking about going and sew, or embroidery, but my feet never move in that direction. I am tired, so will call it a nite!

Don't Fall Over!

I know, I know, 2 posts in one week, and not very many days from one another! What is the world coming too????????
Did some YAK today--cleaned the house. Jerad, my son, is contemplating moving out on his own soon, and the hospital where I work is having a tent sale for Relay to Life in a couple of months, so I want to clean out things i won't use, or have stored for an enternity, and have still not used. DD still stores some of her things here, but they will be going down to her in a few months too. Ahhhhhhhhhh, can you hear it---a sparkling clean house? LOL. Well, it wont be that easy. We are still looking at some remodeling projects too. So, it will be moving day around here for awhile (moving things from room to room). We are going to work on my quilt studio/bedroom first. Then the kitchen (AGAIN), and then the bathroom. Those are only at the top of my list. So it will still be slow going, but now when I see a mess, i know only my dh and I have made it. LOL.
On the quilting homefront today. I email a gal that does some quilting for me, and will be sending her a quilt soon--not for me, it is a gift for a friend that house burnt down. Hopefully it will bring a little light to her day. Then, i cut out some purple blocks from different fabric for another quilt. I think i will send that to Cotie at a later date. Then I need to get backing for another quilt done to take with me to retreat to drop off for another gal to quilt. Whew, I am tired already, and honeys this is only the tip of the iceberg! YIKES!
Retreat is only two weeks away, and I want to get my things together for it! Hoping to take some binding along for the road trips--always make the time go by faster.
later gators!

Well, here I am. One month later, but I am back. Work seems to keep me busy. I love my job, but boy it cuts into my play time.
I did get a chance to go to Pella, IA last weekend. It was my first visit, and I loved it. I hope to go back during the Tulip Festival. I love the architecture of the building on the square. Friends and I were shopping for some fabric for a Relay to Life quilt that we offered to sew for donations. It is gorgeous, and we went with the colors of the teams this year. They are jewel tone red, blue, and purple. I will post the pic soon if I can.
I am also trying to clean up my sewing room. We plan to start on some remodeling projects in there next month. So, I am packing up some fabrics and other what nots so that they don't get dusty and I dont lose them.
The Winslow, Arkansas retreat is coming up March 12-16. I am so excited. A friend from Wisconsin is coming down to spend the nite, and we will take off the morning of the twelveth. Yeehaw!
Just placed an order with Connecting Threads. They have free shipping this weekend. I can't wait till I get it.
Well, need to sign off! Sweet Dreams everyone!
