Checking in

Sometimes you just have to stop progress on what you want to work on and do a little organizing.  I have a sewing tool kit that travels with me to Sit ‘N Sew and I keep it next to my machine when working at home.  It had become so jumbled up it was becoming a major irritation.  So, I treated myself to some new containers, borrowed my husband’s label maker and went to work organizing it.  I know it won’t take long for me to get it jumbled up again…that’s the nature of the craft, but at least for the moment I should be able to find what I need.

Speaking of jumbles, work continues on my Jane Stickle blocks.  I have been delving into the batik remnants my quilting friends have given me, trying to prep blocks. 


We had some much needed and appreciated showers last week.  I’ve always loved rainbows and managed to capture this one between showers.  We did not get that much, but at least we could turn the sprinkler system off for a cycle.  We have a chance (small) for more this week.  Here’s hoping we get some.

I can relate to the sewing kit scramble as well as the Dear Jane tangle. The prep work is the part I dislike the most. Glad you got a little rain.
