In work week of 5/18/15

Nothing on my design wall again today. But I have a good excuse - I was actually away last week (last week's posts were planned ahead as if I were home, since I don't like to post that we're away and the house is empty).  I was here:
On the beach at Perdido Key
This week I have a lot to get done.
First and foremost this morning - go pick up Bax from boarding. He'll be glad to come home.
DS is bringing our grandson CJ to spend the holiday weekend. We got his old crib down from the attic, cleaned it up and bought a new mattress for it. I bought sheets, etc. but couldn't find crib bumpers, so I'll have to make some this week. I'll shop for the fabric today so I can get started right away.
We're having new carpets installed on our first floor next Tuesday so I have to pack up everything so the carpet guys can move the furniture. That means all the dishes, etc. in the china cabinet, the dining room server, and etagere. Also the stuff on the shelves and in the drawers of the big desk and the credenza in the den. All of the accessories, lamps, etc. from the den and the family room. I have to have everything out of there except the actual furniture that they'll move. I also have to empty the family room closet. That's a lot of packing!
So this will be a busy week - making crib bumpers (deadline Saturday a.m.) and packing (deadline Monday p.m.).
For some actual quilting design wall inspiration, check out Patchwork Times.


  1. Wow! You have a busy, busy week ahead. Good luck with all that you have to do! Enjoy your visit with your grandson.

  2. Sounds like an opportunity to weed out a few things while you are packing. I have started going through drawers and closets, one at a time, and baggin stuff up for Goodwill. We'll be moving in the next year and I don't want to take any more than I absolutely need. (We'll see how that goes!)

    Looks like a great spot to get away.

  3. Your time away sounds lovely; welcome home! I hope you have a great weekend visiting with your son and CJ!

  4. Aw, nothing like a beach to calm the soul. I found it interesting that neither of my kids wanted bumper pads for their babys' cribs. Weird. I thought it was very important when they were little. And, yep, 30+ years ago I made my own. Good luck with the packing up and carting the stuff around.
