Not Even ONE Stitch!

I haven't quilted a single stitch yet! I subbed at high school Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. Watched American Idol, then the Olympics while I did a bit of knitting on that knit along that I've flunked out on. I finally got all the stitches for the front and back cast on the circular needle but am still working on the lower ribbing. I told y'all. I'm slow!

I didn't work today, but Sam did...and yesterday too...helping his brother Elton with texturing and priming in the apartment Elton and Carol are working on. (They've lived in an Avion travel trailer since August 2008. The apartment is the next step on their journey to building a farm house.)

So. After Sam left, I walked into my sewing room to start quilting. Looked at my big desk chair and thought...SHOPPING! I went to Longview and bought a smaller "task" chair. I'm not sure I'm going to put the arms on it...I might and if they get in my way, I can always take them off.

Here's my desk chair in it's usual location.
LOL I can reach around behind me and touch the other chair. At least I have a second chair for when Sam comes in and visits me. And I'm sure you noticed the clutter...things are just about back to normal.

I made a stop at Hancock Fabrics. All sewing notions, buttons, etc. were 50% off. Couldn't resist these.
I need to get back to my crazy quilt blocks and finish them.

After Olive Garden...;o)...
I made a stop at Sears and purchased a new canister vacuum. Got so tired of pushing that upright. I didn't realize how much work it was until I ran the canister this evening. I might vacuum more than once every other month now. AND sooo much more QUIET! I get lazy and instead of running the dustmop over the tile, I vacuum it. The old Hoover was LOUD!

Back at school tomorrow...ta-ta!
