I have been spending the majority of my non day job time out in the garden. I finally planted the peas the other day as I wanted to use an additive my aunt gave me to help the seeds sprout faster. Meanwhile, many of the other seeds are sprouting and it's looking more like a garden every day. fun!
I still need to weed out around the roses by the front gate and the clay soil dried out enough last week to make it feel like I was trying to hack through cement! We have been having enough moisture lately that it would make the job easier- if I had any time to spend weeding-which I do not as of today.
Tonight I have my guild meeting where I present the proceeds of a very successful result of selling raffle tickets for our opportunity quilt. The winner of the quilt will also be given her quilt, as it is back from being part of the quilt show at Paduach. I still have paperwork to sit down and do before handing over my guild "job" to the new person. I leave from work to drive up for this meeting-no gardening time today/tonight.
Tomorrow- I am leaving from work for Mt. Vernon, WA. I am joining my friend Ellen as we sew together during a quilt in for the Wraptheminlove charity quilt foundation. My kind of retreat!
I am taking up two current quilts I have close to being done to work on and then will do whatever needs doing to help out there-as it is headquarters for the foundation and the final stop before the quilts head out around the world. I hear there is a stack of quilts waiting for labels-for example. There is always binding to be done as well. Whatever I need to do, is fine with me. The company will be terrific as her mom will also be with us.
I am taking my sleeping bag and will camp out there as well. I expect to be home by supper time on Sunday.
You know those weeds will still be there waiting! as well as other chores...but I could not resist going off to play and quilt for the charity that is dearest to my heart and the one I most support.
My computer time will most likely be just posting to the charity blog as we have invited fellow quilters to sew along with us.
We also have a yahoo group, I am one of the moderators-let me know if you are ever interested in joining that group. It's a private group which keeps out the spammers .
ok! off to the day job and on with a joy filled day- fill yours with joy too.
