This very out of focus area is not this messy now.  It will be worse soon.  After I drive down to pick up my red glasses with their new lenses, I am going to do two things. 1. Pull those tables out to discard the art books hiding behind them, and 2. Start cutting out the dress and apron. 

If I get these things done, I’ll feel heroic while eating my pizza, that I shouldn’t have, at Costco tonight.


  • Himself:  Back at the gym, working hard, and shopping afterwards.
  • Herself:  See all of the above.  LOL
  • Reading:  ”Washington”
  • Gratitude’s:  That I feel pretty good today.


    1. Looks like you've got a lot cut out for you, greetings and best wishes!

    2. You have lots of space for your project, Mage.

    3. Every once in a while you have to eat something you shouldn't have. It gives life meaning.

    4. I almost swung into Costco for dinner last night. But since I'm incapable of stopping with just half of the slice of pizza when I'm by myself I thought better of it.

    5. What a great work area you have! I'm looking forward to seeing those red glasses. I happen to like those Costco combination pizzas too. Gee... I haven't had one in a long time.

    6. That looks like too much work. You will be heroic indeed to get that done.

      1. And I discovered that I didn't have quite enough fabric. Back at the store, the sales lady said, "Oh, you are the Cosplay folks," and went right to the bold. We hadn't been able to find it.

    7. You are so creative; I haven't made a costume in years.

    8. Do we have to wait until it's finished before we see what it will look like?? I turned in the latest quilt along with an apron and two throw pillows to the Depot gift shop today. Felt very good -- now I need to decide if I want to start another of the remaining four train quilt panels I have to work up, start a new lap quilt from scraps or begin cutting fabrics for my great nephew's birthday quilt (a California King, no less) and his birthday was yesterday. I figure I can get it finished by Christmas--make that October since we'll be going to AZ then! Arrrgh! LOL


    What a delight to get a note from you. Thanks for leaving one.


    We got there too early for our assignments, but after trying to get coffee we got both just in the knick of time.    Portfolio Re...
