Making my free time mean something

The reduced hours at work are starting to take effect and I had a day off this week.  I used it wisely.  I cleaned out 4 cupboards.  One was just a mess and now it is sorted. One opened up space so all of my candles can be stored in one spot. And two are now empty (future plans for them still in the works).  They used to hold unfinished projects.  I moved them into my son’s old room.  I got real with myself about 2 of those UFO’s and unraveled them.

Some of that crap is just nasty and will get donated to charity.  Some of it is less nasty and it might be made into toys.  Not sure yet.

My dog got a hair cut “a la mommy”.  Cute alert.

It is the dog version of a bowl cut.  Uneven ears, stray strands hanging out.  I’m on a budget and she wont sit still.  Better than letting her become like a sheep that missed shearing day.

I also made some progress on the dark modern version of the counterpane I saw at a local museum.

Museum version.

75

My version.

The above photo shows where I left off.  I made 4 more blocks.  I think the blocks are lovely.  A bit hard to see the detail but still nice.

I’m proud of myself!
