Preparation Day

Ah, today was so much more relaxed compared to normal. The only chore left is to clean out the litter boxes shortly before sundown. I am definitely going to take note of what I moved to Thursday and do it again next week!

I even had time today to iron the backing I sewed together yesterday. I laid the quilt layers on the floor and watched a tutorial on how to use the basting spray. But then I decided that it would probably be better to wait for my husband's help to use the spray. We don't have hardwood floors so I can't tape the quilt down and will need help keeping everything flat.



Hopefully we'll be able to baste it Sunday morning so that I can start tying it all together! When I knew that I couldn't finish this quilt by Christmas, I started procrastinating. Now it's February and I'm still not done! My goal is to get this quilt tied, the border attached, and the quilt mailed by the last day of February. There's no reason why I can't get it done!

And just for fun, here's a photo of my kitty trying to bury himself in the clean towels. Silly Bruno!

I'm also trying to do little things throughout the week to make Friday easier. I've found that washing our church clothes on Sunday morning is a huge help, keeps me from forgetting someone's shirt or skirt!

Hi Cassandra,
This quilt is beautiful! I can't wait to see it all done. I have made a few quilts for gifts and a couple for my home. I really need to finish another one up.
I hope you are having a wonderful day.
My week is going to be busy, I have many studies and chores to accomplish.
See you soon :)
P.S. please don't give up on your memory verse :)
(((hugs)))
