I have dinner in the crockpot. I just have to plug it in.
Oh, I guess I should take it out of the packages first. I bought Sandra Lee’s Semi-homemade crock pot cookbook last week. As you can see, we’re having pork chops. If it’s not good, at least it will be hot and filling.
Actually, I’m not the least bit organized.
1. Every room in my house is messy.
2. Two rooms need wallpaper.
3. I have a puppy that’s still using my carpet as a restroom.
4. I’m not getting much knitting done.
5. I really need to start exercising.
6. I need to do laundry.
7. I have friends coming over to quilt tomorrow.
Yikes! I really need to just take a week and be an adult. If I pounded it for a week, at least my house would be somewhat in order. And if I worked hard enough, I wouldn’t have to exercise. Does anybody have a cork for the puppy? There! All my problems are solved.
I did make one kid happy this week.
I quilted her quilt. The binding is on, but not hand stitched.
I’ve had my quilting machine for quite a while, but I wanted to be instantly good at it, but since I’m not, I’ve put off using it much. And I get annoyed at my kids when they quit too easily.
I’m very happy with the way this turned out. Now I have to keep at it. After I’m done being an adult, that is. Oh, and you’ll probably never see a photo of it on her bed. Her room is too messy.
On the knitting front, I’ve been working on my Must Have Cardi. I’ve been spending more time in my sewing room recently, so it’s not moving too fast.
I’m knitting the whole body at once, so they’re pretty long rows. The yarn is Classic Elite Waterlily and I’m loving the softness of it. I’ve got about an inch to go until I divide it at the armholes. Believe it or not, it’s a pretty mindless pattern.
I still haven’t blocked my Forest Canopy Shawl. Soon!
I’m off to clean up a few more messes. Having people over does motivate me to clean up at least a little bit. My friends won’t be too surprised at the messes. They know me. They’ll put up with anything to have a quilt day.
