Quilt Friends Rock! Someone should put that on a t-shirt or a bumper sticker or something. Friday was spent with a blogging friend chatting and stitching the day away. McIrish Annie was able to squeeze a free day out of her over-filled work schedule for a day of play.
We put the time to good use, working on a small project - Wednesday's Work by Cheri Payne.
Here's my completed top. Just need to prep the applique and get it stitched down.
Today I opened the mailbox to find a surprise!
Two packages of hand-made flour tortillas lovingly sent by a non-blogging California Quilt Pal. Looks like my dinner plans have just changed!
On the home front, today was quite a red letter day. Principal painting of the interior walls has been completed.
Fearing for our safety, Hubby and I chose to hire a professional to paint the staircase. What you cannot see in the photo is just how high those walls are. Things like scaffolding were necessary
and beyond our ability. So as long as we were hiring that professional . . . . . we asked him to also paint the upstairs hallway and guest bathroom.
They estimated it to be a two-day job, but were done in just seven hours. I am now a firm believer in the painting professional and will call upon them again and again. Knowing that I will go to bed without aching muscles while facing at least another day's work is well worth the price of admission.
And while they painted - I sewed! Here's a peek at what I worked on.
Little blocks are just such fun.
