Ooops -- I made a mistake! Remember I showed you the label on my orange tray? Well, Colin + Justin are still alive! I was thinking of Steven and Chris (and it was Chris who died). Oh boy - thank goodness, I have you all to keep me on track! Thanks, Pauline!!!

And I knew Katheleen would not disappoint. I got suggestions on what to do with those transparencies. So I'm keeping them. I knew she would have a purpose. I can sew through them and use them for pockets in journals. How clever!!!
|The transparencies are saved|
Do you remember the doll quilt that got a bite taken out of it? Believe it or not, but Elaine S has that border fabric!! I used the same fabric for the backing and binding that was on the border. So, I'm going to get some and repair the darn thing. Oh boy!!! I can't help it - it's the pioneer spirit in me!

I did not have time to tidy up anything yesterday. Well, nothing major - just a few bits here and there that didn't make a dent. Nope - I have TWO projects for magazines due on Monday, so I'm working on those. I made excellent progress on both yesterday, and I should finish a good part of both of them today. I need to do some writing so it can be edited tomorrow and sent off on Monday.
I'll be working on both of those today.
And I hope to grab this first box from the office and get rid of some of the paperwork in it. Oh, yes - I want to keep going. I know that I'm going to get busy very soon, but I still have one or two days to mess around.

So some stuff did get cleaned up from the office. Not a lot, but a few things did.
Speaking of Murphy and her foot fetish, look at her! I'm using my programmable foot pedal, and several times, I cut the thread when I didn't want to cut the thread. Bad doggie!

Speaking of shoes, it was time to replace the running shoes. The real running shoes. Yes - I know when you look at the heels of these shoes, they needed to be replaced a long time ago. I'm going to have to replace them every 1,500 KM instead of every 2,000 KM.
|Running shoes - totally worn out|
|My new walking shoes|
|Adding some batting|
|The backing needed to be fixed as well|
|The modern quilt is quilted!|
But I learned a lot while doing this. Things that I won't do again. Oh - I'll do the spiral again, but not with that raised extension table. I needed to be on a much flatter surface. And I think the quilt will have to be blocked as the edges seem a bit wobbly. Hmm - how am I going to do that? I just love how I get one thing done, and that leads to another thing! Sigh................
As I started the magazine quilt yesterday, I pulled it from the pile of current projects! Yep, I'm now going to be working on that pile, and we'll just see how fast it goes down! I've got samples and blog posts to prep, and NONE of those materials are in the current pile! One day at a time! That's all we can do.
I haven't had a chance to work on the puzzle for a couple of days, and oh my - I was able to keep myself away. That's a shock as normally, I'm in there like a dirty shirt!
I got a bit of handwork done last night - I love that new little corner I carved out for myself. I do have a huge bin (of course!) of handwork that needs to be dealt with, so now I'm tackling that as well. My space is in such good shape!
Oh - I promised photos of Studio U today. Ooops - that didn't happen—hopefully, tomorrow.
On that note, thanks to everyone for keeping me honest! I love all your comments and suggestions. Now, what are you going to do with your 10-minutes of tidying today?
Have a great day!!!
