Oh Scrap!

I knew Friday was going to be busy.  My first day off since last Sunday and free day in about two weeks to do what I wanted to do.

My thoughts?  Watch my Netflix movie, sand and wax my shelf for my sewing room, maybe some more fabric folding, feed store to get the fatties some food, to the bank to pay a bill (they no longer accept online payments), the grocery store, some house cleaning and cooking.

Thursday when I got home from work instead of napping, I started folding, and folded, and folded, and folded until almost 10 PM.  I still have quite the pile to get through, but I am starting to see the light at the end of the tunnel.  While I folded, DH prepped the wall in the dining room. 

DH had a different idea for Friday.  He decided to take the day off.  We hit the ground running that morning.  DH had to mow the fields which meant he had to attach the brush hog to the tractor.  Me?  I raided the barn, sanded my shelf, and waxed.  I am loving how it turned out. I tried several different DIY chalk paint recipes and found one I love. 

We then went to the feed store, the bank, the credit union, Michael's, the lumber yard, home to unload, and back to the grocery store.  When we got home, I put groceries away, DH sanded the dining room wall, then swept. 

DH went outside to finish out the decking on the back porch, we were short 1 1/2 boards from last year.  LOL  While he was working on that, I washed the wall down, and started cutting in with primer.

DH then went to work on the Chicken Palace to make a gate/door and enclose it with chicken wire.  Me?  I continued to paint. Finished priming the walls.  By then it was 8 PM.

I stopped threw steaks on the grill and made steak salad with an herb and cheese dressing, with blue cheese crumbles.  It was fabulous and not too heavy.

I then went back into the sewing room. We reconfigured all of the wire racking I have. You can see that picture above

There are two big totes in my sewing room.  One green, one clear.  The clear has all Christmas fabrics in it.  The green one I was not too sure what was in there.  I opened it and all I could think of is Oh SCRAP! More scraps to cut, iron and fold.  Whining to myself, I am thinking I was almost there. 

Have a wonderful holiday weekend!


  1. Such a busy lady! I have all my fabric in plastic containers but cleaned out the scraps when we moved.

  2. Geez! I hope you get a chance to catch your breath! I thought I had been busy lately! It is going to be so worth it though when you have all your fabric organized!

  3. What a busy day. I am tired out just from reading about it!


Thanks for dropping in to visit.
