Just kidding. About the hand grenades.
We’re expecting Rob’s Mom this week for a visit. She generally comes down in the spring. We’ve cleaned the house, as much as we need to. The beauty is that she’s not nearly so interested in our house being clean as she is in our house being happy. And, she fits into our routine instead of trying to change things to suit her. She truly is the best houseguest.
Anyway, Sydney gets the sewing room, and I have to temporarily move out. Not a problem. I can sew somewhere else for a week, surely.
Just a few pictures from the weekend. I tried to work in the yard on Saturday and that just about pooped me out. But, I still managed to get to this baby quilt re-do.
I’m loving this pattern. It goes together so fast and easy and there is unlimited variation in it. Just a couple more borders to go and this one will be ready to quilt. I hope to finish before the Mom gets back from maternity leave.
And, this is West of Paris, Texas. It’s going to be in the show this weekend and it needed a label. I still have to make a pouch to deliver it in, but plenty of time.
I love this quilt, with all it’s springy pastel colors.
And, finally, I did manage to wallpaper the bedroom in the miniature house. It went from this…
To do this, I cut out posterboard to match the original tin walls and then papered over them with wallpaper I printed on my computer. There are baseboards and ceiling molding. the drapes are made of paper so they’ll hang right. Fabric drapes would not have done that.
Next room is the sewing room. I’m looking forward to that one, too. I guess it gives me a way to satisfy my need to redecorate, without having to take the real house apart.
Everybody have a great Monday. Today, we schedule Sydney’s physical therapy. No time like the present to start something unpleasant, right?
