Last night I got my ironing done so I could sew this morning. First here's a photo of Color Explosion baby quilt. Isn't it bright and cheerful? I think any baby will love it.
Next up is my Football Depression quilt. I host a football season nickel swap and this quilt is made with one background fabric and my "winnings" from the 2006 NFL season. It's called Football Depression because I'm always depressed with the lack of sports on TV between the Super Bowl and the start of the baseball season. I have enough New England Patriots fabric for the backing. I plan to get it done in time for this year's season. That gives me about 8 weeks to get it done.
The final quilt top I got together this morning is my Music Quilt. I'm undecided if it will be a table topper or a wall hanging. I've got time to think about it.
I made an executive level household decision this morning. For now I'm going to call myself a housewife. I have been on medical leave for seven weeks and it will be a few more weeks until I go back to work. I'm looking to create some structure to my days as they are beginning to run together. It's even harder to know what day it is when DH is traveling. This morning, this new housewife cleaned the bedroom after breakfast and before sewing. I cleaned the tops of the dressers, spot cleaned and vacuumed the carpet, hung up clean clothes and filled the laundry hamper, and washed the bedding. It felt good to do a little bit of housework. Tomorrow will be bathroom cleaning day.
Tonight I'm going to watch the Red Sox game while playing with the layout of my Fat 8s projects. Then I think I'll take a bubble bath. In our old house the hot water heater wasn't set high enough to enjoy a bath. In this house the water is perfect for a bubble bath. I bought myself Calgon bubble bath yesterday so I can enjoy a luxurious bubble bath. Do you like bubble baths? What's your favorite bubble bath product?
