Day 52 of 2019

I am struggling with what to say about my photo today without getting too wordy, 
so I'll just begin. 
On a visit to see my sister today, she suggested we visit a business 
(not in my home town) that had a quilt block on the exterior of their building.  
She had never been there but was curious.  
As we got closer I noticed that it also had the letters APQS also on the building.  
Right away I knew what we had found.  
I bought my longarm machine from a rep at the show in Paducah several years ago.  
After my purchase, she opened her own business where she stocks longarm supplies 
and rents time on machines to customers. 
This was that business. 
We went inside.  
She was not there but the shop was lovely and inspiring.    
I treated myself to a couple new longarm rulers and a Hoffman Dream Big fabric panel. 
This is just what I needed today. 
I did not buy thread today but always find the displays irresistible.  
If you made it to the bottom of my wordy post, 
thank you.

Day 51 of 2019

It's been a while since I've really cleaned. 
I've cleaned, of course, but I hadn't REALLY cleaned.  
Today I tackled the lights in the master bath. 
 I think I'm going to have to wear shades for a while.

Day 50 of 2019

Today I squeezed myself through between the sorting tables 
and finally took down the Christmas tree. 
All that is left to do is find a place for the special ornaments
 that are new to the house, 
including handmade ornaments by GBs 
and ornaments commemorating our special travels last year.

Day 49 of 2019

Have you heard of Thread Chicken? 
It's the "game" in which you try to finish the task at hand 
without running out of thread. 
Well, I guess this is the knitter's version of that, Yarn Chicken.  
With between six and eight rounds to go, 
I am definitely going to lose.  

Edit:  Just to be clear, I DO have more yarn.  
I will just be forced to attach a new ball 
just in time to do a couple rounds and then bind off.

Day 47 of 2019

I finally ate my Valentine cookie today. 
I sure hope all the glitter was edible.

Day 46 of 2019

I've had one Swedish dishcloth for a few months now. 
I love it so much for wiping off my countertops, 
I finally bought a few more. 
This might be my favorite of the bunch.
