Long weekend shenanigans9:26:00 AM
So. What have I been up to.
"Sew at Home Mummy" has a new blog button in the right side bar. Got bored last night while my little one slept (finally) and designed a new one. I like it.
I also edited the post image that I had previously; now I have 2 nice spools of thread beside each new post:
|My little thread spools :)|
|new little swirly frames|
As well, Friday I received some new fabric for a couple of projects that I'm about to start.
I picked up some quilt panels of the 'Brown Bear, Brown Bear' story book line and some jelly rolls; my plan is to create a couple of unique Eye-Spy quilts for a few of the babies in my life. More on that project soon.
Friday I completed my contribution to the Buzzle Quilting Bee round 2; we had to create two 9-patch blocks in greens, yellows, blacks, greys, and whites. I ordered a couple of charm packs from Connecting Threads and completed my blocks quickly:
I'm excited to get started on it and to share what I'm going to do with it, but since some Buzzlers visit my site from time to time, we'll have to wait...oh the suspense...
Commence thumb twiddling again....
Ok, so then I thought about the vent in our kitchen. We moved in in June and I haven't had a chance to dismantle it and clean it. Because - it is DISGUSTING. I think it hasn't been cleaned since it was put in in the 30's. Seriously. The grease on it was growing grease. Now, this place has been a rental since the 20's when the mansion was converted to 3 flats. So I guess I can understand why it wouldn't be cleaned, but come on people. GROSS.

Now to do something with that hideous wallpaper....
