Busy Week!

I can't believe that I haven't posted since Monday! I'm only slightly behind on emails and blog reading, but I have no idea when I will get to it. So far, I have been running errands and working on house stuff every night this week and I still haven't gotten to sew much since Sunday. I even forgot to post on Tiny Tuesday - I have no new block to report, so there's your update!

Last night, my aunt and cousin came over to get help with an arts and crafts project for my cousin. I told them, "I better get an 'A,' dammit!" We had to cut a section of the poster board out and rig the Nemo fish to travel from behind the anemone to the shipwreck without touching it. It works and he spins his way around the scene! (Sorry for the dark pictures - they were taken with a camera phone and then text messaged to me.)

I have been meeting people this week to sell off the stamping and card stock as well. I also gave the totes that I had to my aunt for my cousin's half sister who scrapbooks. It's nice to get the stuff out of the house!

I also picked up a quilt tonight that I am quilting for a friend from the Modern Quilt Guild. I will be free motioning a design to look like water. It should go quickly and I am hoping to have it done this weekend.

Tomorrow night, I have plans to meet up with some old friends from high school for dinner and drinks. Saturday, I have to renew my tags for the car and get an estimate on repairing the car's bumper. After that, my neighbor is going to come over and do a walk through of the condo to see what he can help me fix to help me get closer to making the room change. He thinks that he can start working on things then, but we'll see what he says after the walk through. The dogs will be very excited because they love him!

So in between the errands and the cleaning and decluttering, I have managed to only sew 1 row together of the Split Decision. And I still haven't started cutting out the fabrics that I got last weekend. I'm not stressing about it though... There will be plenty of time to sew when I get the rooms changed and my sewing area set up perfectly in the new larger space!

It does sound like you've had a very busy week! It's rare that I get time to sew after work. I need to make a better effort to do that, even if it's only 30 minutes.

Wow! Slow Down... :) I'm sure you are feeling great, getting some things done. Have a wonderful day!

OK, I need a nap after reading this! What a busy weekend. Remember to take some time to sleep. Have fun with the girls.

It sounds like you have a lot going on right now, so I wouldnt worry about sewing right now. Like you said once you get things set up it will go faster. Someday I hope to get my rooms rearranged so i can have a sewing and scrapbooking area again. Happy Birthday early. My daughters bithday is saturday and she will be 31. She has a lot going on saturday with the kids soccer, circus, open house at school etc. HAPPY REDECORATION

It was a no sew week for me, too. I'm half-way finished cleaning and organizing my sewing space. I should have it knocked out by Monday. Then I can start working.

Sounds busy but good...look forward to seeing the transition in progress in a few weeks -- and no worries on the split decision quilt -- I can take it in blocks, rows, or a completed top ;P
