Tuesday gloom and found objects

Our temperatures are sort of early spring-like but damp and gloomy. I've been spending my days trying to gather things that have to be moved from my bedroom to the new sewing room. I keep coming across things that I forgot about and are such fun to find again.

Here are some blocks I made probably ten years ago. I don't have any more of this fabric but there's enough blocks to make a table topper or small wall hanging. Sorry for the poor quality of the photo but I forgot to turn off the flash and I'm out of time for today.

Also found some more Robyn Pandolph oldies but goodies. I have enough of this fabric to make a very large quilt at this point. All of this I found yesterday while Roger was home and working on the computer. I decided to keep busy staying out of the way since he worked for hours on something and forgot to save it and it was lost. Some words that would make a struck driver blush were spoken but very quietly since he's quite the gentleman when it comes to that. I'm the big mouth around here. Anyway, I though that being on another floor of the house was the best course of action and I got a lot done. Inhaled a lot of dust as well. At least I'm hoping that's the reason for my coughing jag last night.

Today, I received a list of donors for the last two weeks from the treasurer of the Pantry. The result of that is spending the day writing letters and catching up with the Pantry work. Tomorrow I plan on going back to the important stuff(hah!) Moving!! My BIL Bob is leaving for a cruise tomorrow out of Miami to Cozumel or some such place with much more sun than here. It's just a short hop and the rest of the time he will visit our cousins in Daytona and Ormond Beach. I have to have some blood work taken for a check-up next week wherein the Dr. will most likely have me arrested for being a very bad patient. Christmas was very indulgent and will, no doubt, be reflected in said blood work. I know he means well but he's about 35 and looks like Opie Taylor. I really have a hard time not telling him to go to his room and think about what he said. I will try to be better. Tomorrow.
Talk to you soon. I'll be the one with the celery sticks, salad, and water.....ugh

I just love Robyn Pandolph fabrics and I made a log cabin quilt from one of her collections; the floral pattern in your photo looks the same or similar to mine. I too ate some no-no goodies over the holidays and it's difficult breaking the habit!

LOL, arrested for being a very bad patient! The jails would be full if this were truly a law...believe me!

Good luck with finishing your moving job and finding more treasures (and less dust). I just gave my still-new sewing room a good cleanout last weekend. It is so nice to go in there when there are actual surfaces available to work on!
