It was a Dark & Stormy Day

Friday, April 8th, 2005

… and then the sun came out and then it rained again, etc, etc, etc. So it was a good day to clean my fabric closet. I had all this home dec type stuff – left overs from past projects, fabric that never made it to a project – you get the idea. So I bagged up stuff that the quilt guild boutique committee can use to make stuff and put the rest in a bag for the silent auction table.

Then there was the yarn container – ugh! I used to weave and I sold my loom last year, but kept some of the beautiful yarns. I realized that I will never use them. I sorted out the baby yarn for the guild preemie hat knitters, saved some stuff for my future knitting projects and put the rest in a bag to take to Emily, our youth minister, who just bought a loom and is learning to weave. IT FEELS SO GOOD TO PURGE! Plus there is more room for the stuff I will use.

We had a great guild meeting yesterday. Such wonderful show and tell stuff. I am always amazed by the quanitity and quality of work that the members do. Here is a photo that my friend Rita took of me showing the straight and narrow banner. Notice the funky red linen outfit that I got on sale at Chico’s – a place I frequent.

Sunday, the Bishop is coming for his annual visit to do baptisms and confirmations. The vestry always has brunch with him after the services and it is always difficult to find a place to seat us with some privacy SO I said come to my house. I have to spend tomorrow cleaning the house, shopping for food and doing some prep work. I love to entertain large groups of people. I love doing the linens, using the good china and serving fabulous food. There will be Mimosas!
