It has been a few days since I've blogged! We have been fighting the flu here, one at a time. The process has taken a week & thankfully I was the last & unfortunately for everyone else the least affected. I just felt nasty, everyone else was worse than nasty. I spent 2 days doing laundry to clean up from the Princess. It was her first real vomiting illness so trying to get her to stay in one spot was a challenge.
I have stripped my couch cushions, steam cleaned the carpet, washed every blanket & sheet that was on the couch or in her room... I do so love to do laundry!
I did manage to plant my flower box & front garden. I am going to my Mom's later to cut some pachysandra to plant in my other front garden. Right now it is a mess of weed & one lonely rose bush (just planted it so more like rose stub!). We went to the local green house & bought some petunias, a Vinca vine & some cherry tomato plants (for the princess). One of my neighbors had a stand out with primroses & Gerbera daisies, so I bought one of each of those. Now I just need to go to my "guy" and get some hanging baskets, then the front will be complete, at least for this year. DH wants to buy some trees, but we don't agree on the kind of tree.
Not a whole lot of sewing going on at the moment. I did manage to cut out for a canvas shopping tote & I have the fabric pre washed & shrunk (my former boss was right about the 20% shrinkage, Glad I didn't sew first!) I probably should have washed it before I cut it. I think it is going to be smaller than I was hoping for.
I've been trying to make a list of my upcoming or overdue projects so I can fit them in with my "need to do" projects
- Mixer Cover for Grandma
- curtain tabs for sister
- shirt dress for Princess
- finish lunch bag for DH (hem & Velcro)
- canvas tote
- Irish chain - camo quilt, finish top then quilt
- T-shirt quilt - back
- red& white tutu
- My sister's swing canopy (still waiting on measurements & fabric)
- handbag for me (recycling pair of pants that I love but will most likely never fit me again)
We have a baseball game tonight, I am working the snack stand! Love it. I'll probably have to run the register, since I am usually the only one with experience at it... Not that I mind, I am missing the retail interaction a little, especially now that we'd be going full swing this weekend if we were opening... So I miss it a little, but come July when it is nice out & I am floating in our pool instead of scooping ice cream & mopping goo every 5 minutes I'll be happy with our decision to not reopen!
I am going to try not to be too censorious this weekend. I'd love to make up for all the work that didn't get done while we were sick, but it is a HOLIDAY after all!
I am loving Qumana! I'm still working out the category thing & I have to add pictures online, but it's still pretty cool!
