Thursday Tidbits

I managed to finally finish the two quilts that were on my project list for this month. No more quilting for a bit. One of them will be put in the family reunion silent auction to raise a bit of cash so we don't have to pay for our meal in two years time.

I have also rolled the coin that we managed to save over the past two years. This will be used to bid on items in the silent auction. We don't have as much as other years (just goes to show that prices have indeed risen). Still $400.00 is nothing to sneeze at. Taking it to the bank in bits as all that rolled coin is heavy.

No real rain fall as of yet, in fact we are now in the midst of a thunderstorm with hopefully lots of rain coming our way. It is dark and the solar lights in the garden have twinkled on.

My new television arrived yesterday and I have managed to get it all set up, even with my android box!! I am one happy person right now, after two weeks of trying to watch TV on my tablet (difficult to do anything else) it is nice to have a big screen and a picture one does not have to squint at to watch.

The rest of this week I am locking myself in the sewing/craft room and getting my sewing completed during the mornings, and then in the afternoons I will work on the knitted squares and some cleaning. The fridge, stove and oven need cleaning again badly.

Decluttering is continuing at a slower pace. I hope to remove a few more item, or at least use up a few bits of my stash. Thus clearing out more space in those pesky plastic storage drawers.

Everybody have a wonderful evening.

God bless.


  1. Sounds like you're making very good progress towards your aims for the month. It's been rainy here in the UK for the past couple of weeks. I prefer it to hot sun, but I'm probably not in a majority on that score. Enjoy watching your new TV. My quilt top is coming a long nicely, still quite a bit to do before the top is finished though.

  2. I don't know about you, but I could stay busy for months, maybe even years, if I just busied myself using the stash in my craft closet.
