Windy Thursday

First let me start off with a little house cleaning tip. To dust window blinds thoroughly open your window on a very windy day. Be sure to not raise the blinds after opening the window, keep them down. Then wait for a huge gust of wind and after scaring the heck out of you your blinds will be nicely dusted. Let me point out if you have allergies to dust you may want to leave the room. That is my tip for the day!

Oh here is another tip, I should have posted this yesterday so I would have known.  Here goes. Don’t think you are going to make your kids the happiest kids ever and be super early in the car pool line, an hour early at that, and then leave your lights on the entire time. Can you guess what happens? If you guessed a dead battery and lots of embarrassment you are correct. Yes, my kids are happy to call me mom, at least I didn’t forget to pick them up.

I have been moving at a snails pace lately but I have started a couple things and I have a made a little progress.

I am not going to tell you what these little gals are going to be. Hopefully I can get a little more done on them later this week.


I finished piecing my blocks for the Siggy Swap over at the Prim Pals forum. If you have not joined this awesome group of prim lovers you should go check out the blog here. Now I just need to sign them.


I also received my pattern for the Stitch-A-Long led by Chooky Blue.  We are using “Tis the Season” by Natalie Bird this time around. I ordered my pattern from Treasured Threads, I have ordered from Shannon many times and have always received great customer service. She carries many patterns from Australian designers and very inexpensive compared to some other places. Now to pick out the fabrics and start stitching!! Well, I have to finish the other one we had started first, maybe, heck who cares, add another project to the basket, a very big basket.


I hope you are having a great day and will find a little stitching time, it is good for the soul!!

LOL! That trick for dusting blinds is great but (to my shame) my window dressings would need a hurricane and after that we probably couldn't see through the dust that had blown off!
I seem to have ground to a halt but you keep going at a snail's pace and you'll make it!
Best wishes
