Thank god for audiobooks. I actually had the hardcopy of this book, and when I realized I could get the audiobook version, I switched. I get so much done while I'm listening. My headphones have become a fixture on my head. The BEST investment I've made in a long time.
So what has me so engrossed at the moment? It's called The Broken Girls by Simone St. James. A murder - actually several murders - old ones and a bit of creepiness thrown in. Let's just say that my skin has gone cold a couple of times! I'll finish it today, but I'm still getting my work done. I'm happy! It's the second book I've read by this author - both were excellent if you're into ghosts.
I'm happy to report that the quilt top and the backing for the magazine quilt are DONE. I have to make the binding later today, and I have to get it quilted, but first, there's a small table runner on the long arm. Guess where I'll be this morning? I also got all the stitching done for the second magazine project. No - I didn't get any writing done, but that's for later today. I've found it's a bit difficult to listen to an audiobook and write! I'm right on track!
There's no time to show off the new tidy spaces. But soon! I found more pictures of what I had to deal with! It's hilarious! Well, not really, but laughing at the mess makes it easier to deal with.
Let's see what I found.
Good grief - I found a kit for the Little Lacie Bag. I found a pattern that contained 5 zippers, and I found an extra pattern.

It's hard to see the opossum, but he's sitting on the rock behind the tree.

I haven't been out shopping in a long time - well, several weeks, and I see that we're running out of a few essentials. That means a trip to Costco. Hmm - do I dare, or do I just order online? I'm getting cozy with having things come to me! But I might venture out later this week - just to get out and run the car for a wee bit.
On that note, I'm out of here! Loads to do today, and I know some of you are expecting e-mails from me. I tried to get most up to date yesterday. I need to work on the deadline stuff today and then focus on class stuff this coming week, so a few days of patience!
Have a super day!!!! And don't forget to set your timer for 10 minutes. What can you get accomplished in 10 minutes?
