This one will be short. It's been a crazy five months - five trade shows in five months. And today - guess what my calendar says? "NOTHING SCHEDULED" That is almost as good as winning the lottery. OK - I lost my head for a moment.
I told Sandy that I would stay with her until the bitter end of getting all the quilts packaged and we were pretty much the last ones to leave the Convention Center. It was 8 PM. Another long and exhausting day but so worth it and so many volunteers - it was great to see so many people pitching in to help.
As I was walking out of the hall with my quilts, I noticed these large pieces of fabric. They were the pieces the long arm quilters had used on their machines during the show. I walk past the first one, but when I got to the front door, there were a few more and I decided to rescue them all. I know - it's so sad.

Then I faced a dilemma when I got home. I had a bite to eat and I was tired, but do you think I could fall asleep? Nope - it was well after 1 AM when I finally fell asleep. That doesn't bode well for a good day for me and with nothing planned, I wasn't happy last night. Which is probably why I couldn't sleep. Ever had those times when you are sabotaging your own day? That was last night for me.
Since I couldn't sleep, I thought I might as well be doing something useful so I was downstairs looking at projects. I know - it's very sad! But I was having fun and trying to bore myself to sleep. It worked eventually.
I'm up now and while it is a beautiful day outside, I think I might veg in the basement all day and see what I can do about getting that mess in a bit better shape. So here is my BEFORE picture. Let's see what it looks like after an entire day of messing around. Let's hope I don't get the call of the Sirens from the sewing machine, although I can hear it already singing to me.

On that note, I'm out of here to have a great play date in my studio - OK, so it's going to be tidy up time all day.
Have an awesome day!!!!
