September 26th ….a long week…katmandu…etc…

  It has been a long week, Linda has been taking the “Dutch Touch” doll class in Issaquah, and I have had the kids all week ….Linda is incredible….how she does this homeschool and home managing thing is awesome….I wish “someone” would be paying her for it…she would deserve it….she is SO  organized….

  clean side of my sewing table.jpg   sewing table messy side.jpg   Speaking of organized….or rather non-organized…..This is my sewing table….for some reason I took pictures of it and put it here…the picture on the left is the “clean” side….the picture onthe right is the “messy” side….Sigh….I moved to a much bigger space and I still manage to make a rat’s nest out of it….Linda doesn’t even look over here as it scares her too much to even think about it…..

I think it is time to clean….eh??


Here is the Katmandu quilt in process…..

  • Thanks Andee, it makes me happy when people like my work. I am working on writing up directions for it soon….Mark and I are working out an arrangement to sell some of my patterns under the Pickle Road banner….(It is much easier to MAKE the quilt than write up the instructions I think)…
