I decided to go to see my dad on Saturday instead of Friday
so my DH could install a new kitchen faucet for him.
Dad even cleaned all the stuff from under the sink before we arrived.
Then DH managed to get the faucet installed quickly.
We also found out he was going to get some new windows.
More specifically a bay window and 2 new windows in his family room.
This necessitated a lot of different cleaning than what I had planned.
He had a HUGE file cabinet right smack in the middle of the bay window area.
There was also a table in the center of the living room piled with stuff and
stuff all around it on the floor.
By the time we left, the file cabinet, the stuff on the floor and the table were all cleaned up.
I filled my car and mad a trip to the Salvation Army and
there were some of my DD1's things ready to pack and bring home.
All in all a productive day.
There has finally been enough clutter cleared
that they are working on getting a cleaning lady to come in and keep the bathrooms clean, the kitchen floor mopped and the house vacuumed.
My sister is even taken to cleaning up her stuff since there is some space to sort and clean.
I'm happy they are finally embracing the cleaning!!
We ended up getting home pretty late so not much but bed on Saturday night.
Today was sunny but cold so I did some laundry and unpacked the car.
I decided that I needed to work on my dad's quilt now too.
I have a loveseat behind my sewing machine and
there is an afghan on it that I roll down to use as my design wall.
I laid my dad's quilt so far on the design wall and turned around and look what I found.
She just wanted to be near me.
I worked diligently on finishing the top.
I laid it on my queen sized bed and I think it is one row too long.
I'm not fond of square quilts but my dad has a full sized bed and it is the old kind.
This quilt measures 84 X 96.
I think the width is good but 96 may be too long.
I can always take off a row and use it on the back.
Also, not sure what to do on the back.
I was thinking about looking for some pin up girls and airplanes.
Does anyone know of fabric like that?
I have more to share but it will have to wait until tomorrow.
Two more days until the start of the Sliced Apples QAL
Are you playing?
