First, for your viewing pleasure, a lovely red and green quilt that I wish was mine!

Red and green

Well, I had every intention of getting caught up on the Easy Street quilts yesterday. Doesn’t the saying go something like this, “The road to hell is paved with good intentions.”? Well, if hell is the place where, similar to Sisyphus, you keep working at something only to have it come undone and you have to start all over again, then that’s where I am!!!

I had an awful time working on the house shapes from last Friday’s clue. Mainly because I thought I had a better way of doing things. I should have just listened to Bonnie’s directions and it probably wouldn’t have been so bad. But, NO, I had to go my own way and think that I was smarter than everyone else! I sewed those ding-dang pieces and almost everyone of them came out all wonky and I had to un-sew them!! Urgh!!!

So, despite my good intentions of being all caught up, I am still working on clue #5 right now. Fortunately, clue #6 is super simple, so it shouldn’t take me too long to get back on track.

I have a full day planned – more office work, more cleaning, going to visit DH’s aunt and uncle and then DS#1 and his family will be visiting this evening. We haven’t been able to get together until now because of the snow – DH and both oldest sons are some of the ones that go out to clear roads and driveways for everyone else. So, when it snows, they are very busy. The plan for our visit is: supper together, exchange Christmas gifts, then DS#1 and wife will be leaving the four DGC here with Mimi and Papaw overnight, while they get a little break. Mimi and Papaw will probably need a week’s vacation after entertaining four little people!!!

Norman may want to head for the hills while all this visiting is going on. I’m pretty sure that, even though he loves attention, having four children trying to pet him all at the same time may be more than he would like.

Peace
