The Steve Miller Band Kept Me Company
September 16, 2008 § 9 Comments
… while trying to get caught up on stuff around the house. If that doesn’t show my age, I don’t know what does! I grew up on Classic Rock. Gary and I even went to a Steve Miller Band concert at the fair last year. It was really good.
After painting on our house all weekend (actually, we’re still painting trim) I’m just trying to clean up and restock the freezer with muffins, cookies and bread. And I have some sewing to do for a friend. The new house colors are Retro Olive with Cream Pie trim and Evening Empress accents. Don’t you just love those color names? Gary kept calling the house Martini Olive Green. The trim is white and the accents are a black that is not quite black but more of a charcoal gray. I’ll show you better pictures when we’re finished.
What I’ve really been itching to do, though, is dig into my scraps. I took a class at nearby quilt shop on how to use their HQ 16 mid-arm quilting machine. I’m impatiently wanting to make a few charity quilts with my scraps to practice machine quilting.
And with that thought… please wander over to Collecting Scraps. It’ll be where all things scrappy will be discussed. Once the dust settles around here, literally and figuratively, we’ll organize some themed scrap challenges. Maybe have a give-away. And dig into that ever-growing pile of scraps that we just can’t bear to throw away.
These were mostly charms acquired from a couple of swaps plus some of my own. And now I feel like a nap even though I am not nearly to the bottom of my to-do list.
