Okay. I told you that today was the day to begin cleaning up the back room of the store. This is what I faced yesterday - an 8' table loaded with stuff. I spent yesterday clearing off the table and moving things out of the way for Mr. Man to get busy today.

We now have clean shelves installed! I left him completely alone to do his thing - he's a great guy, but sometimes his "suggestions" aren't always practical. He's got to do his thing. His way. I think it turned out okay.

Now I'm left with this. I was just too tired to deal with it this afternoon. But I did cull out a bunch of sample quilts and we've priced them to sell in the store. There's still a bunch of stuff to sort throught, but I'll do that early next week.

I came home tonight and quilted and bound the Steamer Trunk Treasure sample. It's still a little "blendy", but I was using a specific fabric line and that's what flavor it is.

I guess tomorrow I need get crackin' again on the orchestra fundraiser quilt. It sounded like a good idea at the time when I volunteered for this. I'd much rather work on my red and white Twist and Shout, or punchneedle this really cute pattern that we got in this week, or play with fabric ala One-Block Wonders, or do any amount of other things. But, a commitment is a commitment and the sooner I get it done, the sooner I get to play with something else.

Here's a little something I pulled out of the handwork pile. I bought some rubber stamps for hand piecing at the Dallas Quilt Show last year and pulled a couple of fat packs out of my stash and began..... last year. It's been put away for quite some time now, and now I'm dragging it around to all those places where I have to wait. Maybe I'll finish it before NEXT year. But don't hold your breath. Sometimes I have the attention span of a gnat.
