Well, I don't seem to have a lot to show for all my work yesterday. And there are days when I think back to what I did the day before, and I have to search really hard. The days, especially when it comes to decluttering and sewing, can run endless one into the other!
I did some puttering during Monday sewing, and I had a few more hourglass units to trim. Speaking of hourglass units, here's an update in that area.
So you saw these units that I stitched at the retreat.

|Ah MOM -- the ball is behind that quilt rack -- could you get it, please?|

And I'll finish up the day with that house around the corner. As the homeowners, I'd be so frustrated. A bit of work gets done, and then the work stops. Then a bit more work, and then it stops. I see there is now a big yellow tape around the entire fence, and does that mean -- it's on hold once again? But look at the huge icicles hanging off the roof.

I did more puttering yesterday, but nothing I can share with you!
I have some more writing to do today, and I hope to clear a couple of projects off my plate. Maybe get back to clearing that closet and empty the current projects table. That would be awesome. Now that I'm close, I'm motivated -- I just need the time. But this week is pretty wide open (more or less), so it's doable.
It's my week to blog about QUILTsocial!! This week I'm taking the Husqvarna Viking Opal 670 for a spin. It's a fantastic little sewing machine -- great if you're starting out and super great to take to a retreat! Check it out as not only am I reviewing the sewing machine, but I offer sewing tips along the way.
Don't forget the Virtual Retreat this weekend. Saturday evening (January 29) from 6 PM - whenever and then Sunday starting at 11:30 AM. I'll post the links tomorrow.
On that note, I'm off to walk THREE dogs this morning. Thankfully, Bear does NOT like the cold, so he doesn't need a long walk, but what a good boy as he asked to go outside yesterday and did all his business. He's finally growing up!
Have a great day!!!!
