I am soooo sooooooo sorry for not posting,,, I decided (humm) to paint the closet downstairs... I went to get my jacket to get ready for cold weather (blahh) and wow,,, the smell hit me in the face... it smelt like a musty (basementy) smell,,,I pulled out all the coats, shoes, boots etc... out of there , threw things into the wash and had to clean and paint the closet...holy moly,,, re -organized it and now the smell is much nicer... then I went to quilt on my Gracie and the stitch regular not going (light was on but nobody home LOL) had to make a call and K. the owner of the quilting shop I purchased from made a house call to make sure everything was plugged in (dah as if I didn't do it) anyhoot, long story short,,,I will be receiving one sometime in the near futur .. hope it works lol.... I did however used the manual stitcher and did one quilt... ... Of course I was in the mood for sewing , I went to pull out fabric from my huge closet in sewing room and ,,,yep POW it hit me in the face again (boy, I should be bruised) with the smell of cigarette smoke (as an ex smoker , that was cruel) ... as per hubby, the previous owner (elderly lady) must have sat in that closet and smoked with the door closed..this was the second closet now , I should have done that when we moved in last Oct...(1 year now). ..OH WHY OH WHY,,,. of course I created myself a MONSTER lol... out everything went , painted ,,smell good...but now hummm I re-organized by bins so I can find by color... ,,, lol your probably bored by now reading this, but I decided that wasn't enough so I am now organizing the whole shish ka boodle... the sewing room will also get a paint job this weekend...and hopefully that's it..for now LOL.... here is a few pics of the changes and painting and messes lol.... oh, I have to take a picture of the next block lotto I have put together for our guild for Nov... the top is done but didn't quilt yet..I will put here ... Ciao , Salute, Adios, Nighty Nite, Bonsoirs mes amis....
