How can I tell when it's REALLY time for a good house cleaning? When I see two large spiders are fighting over who will eat one small spider. Neither spider won because a fly swatter ended the match. These webs appear overnight. It gives me the willies thinking I could wake up one morning with webs all over the house. It feels like arachnophobia going on around here. Really creepy!
I don't have time right now for cleaning because I have quilts behind schedule. Even though I did semi-retire, I feel guilty when the quilts take way to long to complete. This one has held me up for a couple of days. I've had a hard time coming up with a good stitching design for it. Maybe I'll come up with something soon.
I also have this one waiting. I had a hard time coming up with a design for it too. I think I finally have a good idea. I'm waiting for the owner to give her approval for what I have in mind. I still have three quilts to finish before I get to it though. What I have in mind will require some marking and putting it on the machine twice. I think it will look great when done..... if it looks as good as I can see it in my mind.
We had a little food preparation practice over the weekend. Ladybug was learning about spreading butter on crackers. It's kind of hard coming up with new teaching ideas for a two year old. She's so anxious to learn new things that she wants to do it herself before I've had a chance to show how it's done. I constantly have to slow her down to keep her safe.
I'm thinking a large magnifying glass might keep her occupied for awhile. Kids can make all kinds of discoveries with a magnifying glass. Maybe a trip to the school supply store or the discovery store pretty soon might be a good idea. Gosh, I haven't been to those stores since my sons were small. I don't know if the stores are still there. Hmm... maybe I can find some xmas gifts for the other grands while I'm there. My son tells me a couple of his kids are extremely gifted too.
Ok, I'm hoping to get an early start on the quilting today. The fair starts this week and I want to be ready. I don't want to walk around the fair thinking about the work left at home unfinished. I retired so I can enjoy going places without guilt.
