i've been very un-quilty lately. i don't really know why. maybe i've contracted the hot weather summertime blues? frazzled mom syndrome? or just laziness? i just haven't felt much like pulling out the sewing machine lately.
to amuse myself these days I sit here and surf blogs. or i lounge on the couch and browse through home decor magazines. in fact, my brain has been almost completely switched over to the home decor mode rather than the quilty mode. i've realized that over the past year my addiction to fat quarters has changed to an addiction to plates. i love going to marshall's, ross, tjmaxx or tuesday morning and searching for some ceramic treasure. look how cute these are! they will soon find a place on my kitchen wall.
hopefully all this thinking about home decor will help me out in that arena. that is definitely not a talent of mine. an interest but not a talent.
today i decided it was time to learn a new skill. i've been after my hubbie to hang some hooks in the laundry room for awhile. he said he'd do it this afternoon. well, while he was in the shower i decided that i didn't really couldn't stand to wait any longer, and it was time to have it done. i got out his drill and figured out how it worked. i'm quite proud of myself! For seven years of marriage I've always left all the drilling up to him. Today I've liberated myself. No more waiting for him to do my drilling projects for me. I now have this nice place to hang purses, bags etc. (Please overlook the scuff marks my ironing board left on the wall.)
Does this mean that after 7 years I should also learn how to use the lawn mower? Ha! No.
