Kind of hard to believe I've post 850 times in 20 months of blogging...LOL. So........ as you can see from the first picture, WI is beginning to take on some 'green'...thank goodness. It will be weeks yet til we get flowers, but there is the promise. And then here are the two 'Cracker' block doll quilts for my friend Delores to give her granddaughters. I got those finished up.
The good news this week is that I will have company for dinner on Easter Sunday. When all your children have children, and that other set of relatives, it gets hard to bring them together very often. But my oldest son called, and he and his wife and 3 boys will be here to
help me celebrate...*VBS* So I've already begun the 'sprucing up' part of my preparations. I wish I was a person that had a place for everything and kept things where they belong, but I'm not. And it takes a major effort to 'de-clutter' and get ready for company...but I'm delighted to have them coming, so I won't complain.
By finishing up these two doll quilts, I have almost all of my Aunt Gracies type fabric used up. And doing the 9 patch/broken dishes baby quilt helped also. I'll be glad to see the end of the Aunt Gracies, altho the younger gals that I use it for, sure do love those pastel prints.
My stash has turned into a complete nightmare over the past couple of months, and I'm looking forward to jumping in, some rainy day, and just sorting,thinning out and getting it all neat and tidy again. It will probably take a full day!! I sort by color, but my oh my, I've really made a mess this time!!
Tomorrow is my early day trip to the Vitreo-Retina surgeons office again for a re-check on my left eye. I'm hoping to find out why I have such constant pain in that eye. It's time for some answers, if there are any to be had. DD#1 will be driving me into the Twin Cities as my eyes will get dilated, and that puts a nix on driving for a few hours. Plus, I'm nearly past the place I can comfortably drive in a metro area. Too many things to watch and 'see', and I don't feel I can 'see' fast enough anymore. I'm still ok to drive around here, thank goodness. Hope everyone had a good weekend, I'm off to do some cleaning and organizing and then write out the bills.
