Not one bit
I have not done one bit of sewing or knitting all week. :0/ I looked around and decided my free time really needed to be spent cleaning. This is most unusual for me, especially since we weren't even expecting company!
Do you have a place in your house you would never never never photograph for your blog, because, well, even after spending four hours cleaning it is still a disaster? I admit I don't clean our porch nearly often enough. You see, every single time I get it reasonably tidy, someone brings something large into the household, and decides the porch is the best place to store it.
I accumulated several bags of cardboard and paper to take to the recycling center, a few bags to take to Goodwill, and yes, some things that no one would have any use for at all, that went into the trash.
I also cleaned our closet and found something I hadn't seen in years. It is made from shirt sleeves, cut into three inch squares. Years ago I worked for a uniform company. Sometimes perfectly good long sleeved shirts needed to become short sleeved shirts. I got to keep the sleeves, and made quite a few things out of them. Baby quilts for co-workers, place mats, pillows, and a doll quilt, as shown, just for fun.
Larry and I had a GREAT walk this morning. We started out just going to the Post Office to mail our letters - er, bills. Yes, as my nephew kindly pointed out, they do make house calls, but we like our walks. Once we arrived we decided to take a different route home, so we could see all the flowering trees in the cemetery. Once there, we strayed further from our planned route, and ended up walking for two hours and twenty minutes! I do wish we had taken the camera. We saw one lovely sight right after another, such as a beautiful small lake with ducks, geese, and a swan gliding majestically along. It had a lovely walking path alongside which we thoroughly enjoyed.
I hope I'll do some sewing this week!
