More Spring Cleaning



I finished the guest room today. I spent 3 hours yesterday vacuuming walls, ceiling and beams, washing windows, cleaning woodwork and polishing furniture and washing curtains and bedding. Today I vacuumed the floor again and shampooed the carpet and everything is back in place. That's two major rooms finished so far this year, so I'm pretty happy about that. I also spent the rest of yesterday and most of today quilting on the longarm, so that was great -- except it was all for other people. I still need to put borders on the second dog quilt and then make backings for both and quilt them. I still have enough dog fabric for one more quilt, but I'm getting pretty tired of working with them, so who knows if I finish the 3rd one or not. Time will tell....
Tomorrow after church I hope to get outside and rake the flower beds -- at least the big one where the daffodils are. They're probably already starting to come up, but can't find them for the leaves. We're finally getting 40's and 50's here this week and I sure hope it stays that way. I'm definitely tired of winter.
Gratitudes:
I have a feeling of accomplishment this weekend -- not only finishing the guest room, but also getting a few quilts quilted. Now I can work on some of my own stuff!
Had another sewing day at Kris' this past week -- we do accomplish a lot in about 5 hours or so of work.

Ooh, talk about cozy. Looks so nice and warm. I've been on a spring cleaning kick too. Scrubbed the walls today. No fun, but boy does it feel good in the house now!

Wow! How wonderful to get so much done. And your house is so beautiful. (I've always wanted to live in a log house)
