Block 4 of Summer Blooms is done.
And Block 3 of Words to Live By. Block 4 is in the works. And Block 5 of both arrived in the mail today. This BOW business is going to be a run for the money. But I am in love with both sets of blocks, and so, am motivated.
The beginning of this week found my sewing room in total disarray. I am no neatnik, but I simply can't work well in such a state. Not wanting to totally monopolize my Wednesday with cleaning, I devised a plan. Setting the timer, I stitched for 30 minutes, then cleaned for 30 minutes. I accomplished a lot. I am still not where I would like to be with the cleaning, but it is ever so much better.
On Monday we visited my sister in Alabama. She and my brother in law are going to be moving into an Assisted Living apartment soon, and I really wanted to see her in her home before they start preparing for the move. It is a huge and heart wrenching decision for them. I totally understand.......it is difficult to even contemplate leaving your home of 49 years forever. She entrusted me with this beautiful violet, knowing she wouldn't have room for it at her new place. I hope I can do it justice.
A sister's love.
Southern style food.
A grandchild snuggled against me in the bed.
