If I play my homeschooling cards right Monday-Thursday I have Friday off from teaching--and that means that I only have to do the week's laundry and clean the house between the hours of 9-3. What a bargain right? Of course, what I really want to do is quilt, so I have found a way to sneak in what I really want to do amongst what I really have to do. I am no genius--just determined and energetic.
Step One: Clean one room or area of the house.
Step Two: Sew one row together and add to the top.
Step Five: Pick yet another part of your messy house and pick it up.
Step Six: Add another row to the quilt top.
And if you follow this pattern for about 5 hours three things will happen--
1) Your house will be clean
2) You quilt top will be assembled
3) and you will be exhausted-but happy
And then on Saturday at sunset you force your husband to stop the car and hold up the quilt top--right there, no a little to the left--a little lower--please cover up your shoes--can't you just stop moving for a second! *SNAP* thanks sweetie--it's perfect.
I also finished this top this week--I love red and turquoise--it was fun and quite easy to put together--if you have never used this block before--check out this easy tutorial.
I am linking up to Amanda Jean's Finish It Up Friday!
Hope you can get some sewing (and cleaning) done this week!
