Spring Cleaning


I think I am procrastinating.  Any thing to put off facing cleaning out this room.  I managed to get the pencil marks out of old Bruno and after doing that realised that of the 20 or 30 red work embroideries I have completed I have given them all away, barring old Bruno.  So, he is a keeper.  A reminder of how I can become obsessed about things.

I didn't have the right materials on hand to make the straps so I used what I did have.  These were too light in weight so I sewed the lengths together to overcome this problem.  I rushed to make the back panel yesterday, again, anything to put off the cleaning, and today I cross hatched it with a bit of quilting.

I used a synthetic fabric for the lining.

I still had plenty of time to clean so I stitched another card.

Then I got a text from my niece telling me that my grand-nephew Leon, who is turning 7 soon, liked his quilt.

Next I will do my Spanish lesson and then I will clean.

Thank God you don't like cleaning!
Someone will get that lovely card and be grateful you don't like cleaning, Spanish speaking people you will meet on your trip will be happy you rather study Spanish than clean, and think of all the customers and shopkeepers who will see your beautiful Redwork bag when you go shopping... Then there is Leon who is most happy that you prefer quilting to cleaning.

That makes me fell so much better. I can now put the cleaning off for a few days with a clear conscious!


I'm glad I'm not the only one who hates cleaning!
