Afternoon Break

Wow what a busy Saturday.  Still it is Saturday Sharing Day over at Thearica's Blog Pigtales and Quilts http://www.pigtalesandquilts.com/  Come on over and show off what you have been up to this week. 

DH washed all the windows on the sun room/mud room depending on the season, swept and mopped. 


 I cleaned the kitchen, made beans which will be made into baked beans, and a cake.  Hung new curtains in the kitchen....well they are not new they are recycled from my previous home. 

Yes red gingham! Sorry for the dark picture. 
I dusted, washed windows in the house, and opened some up to get some fresh air.  We have sun, a light breeze and it is like 50 degrees which is a heat wave.  :D

We moved the Hoosier into the kitchen too- close to its new home after I painted the green monster this week. 
I have been vacuuming the vents including the black hole!

Trust me it is better than it was.  The hammer fixed the ancient hardwood along the molding that keeps falling into the vent.  No I did not use nails, I actually put it back into the tongue and groove and hammered it back into the space where it goes. 

DH hung up an old coat hook in my playroom!  What a great way to keep my blocks from what I am working on all neat and tidy.

Oh and during the week I did get some sewing time. 

I sandwiched my Easy Street so it is ready for quilting.  Will probably be unsandwiched, I came up with an idea of how I want to quilt it and it needs marking now.  Unless I figure out how to mark it with the pin basting.

My foray into the man cave where DH set up 3 banquet tables for me to use to sandwich. 

Easy street waiting to be quilted



And laying out my Hugs and Kisses quilt blocks in the order I wanted.


My weekly goals are to finish 2 farmer's wife blocks.  Of course this week were these two

Jackknife

Peace and plenty

Lots of triangles.

I would love to finish a country charmer or two this weekend before the insanity of the family Easter dinner here.  But I also have some more cooking and house cleaning.  Happy Easter everyone again.
