Oh, I am such a BAD BLOGGER!!!!

I apologize for not blogging the last couple days.  I am out of sync and it's because I keep thinking I can "do it all" but you can tell.........I cannot.  I've been preoccupied with the Olympics and when I wasn't I was doing mundane housekeeping that I really didn't think anyone would be very interested in.  But here's a posting which is still not very glamorous..........I'll get back on track once the Olympics are over....won't I???? 
I finally used some beautiful Crab Tree and Evelyn scented drawer paper I've had for years.  I was saving it....for what?  Lining my casket? LOL!  I've been cleaning while keeping my eyes on the t.v. and got to my Mother's dresser which I use for out of season clothes.  It's an old dresser and the drawers stick so I don't use it for every day....too much of a struggle but for out of season clothes it's perfect! 
  Isn't this the prettiest print?  Plus, it's scented with their "Summer" scent.  The box it came in is covered in the same's like 2 presents in one!  You betcha I saved the box! 
 I finally got my next block pattern traced and ironed onto the wool for the appliques.........
 Other than that I really haven't gotten anything "fun or glamorous" done.  
But.........I did get a wonderful present(s) in the mail from my blogging buddy Nancy Jo  which I will post about tomorrow!  You won't believe all the lovely things she sent me!  And I didn't even win a drawing!  she's just sweet and generous and I am blessed that she is my friend!  So, I promise to be a better blogger and tune in tomorrow to see what Nancy Jo sent me!  Woo Hoo!  Hope you had a great Friday!


  1. Oh my friend, I can relate.
    Summer has been so busy!

    Congrats on the sweet gift from Nancy Jo!!
    Can't wait to see your new treasures!!

    Have a great weekend!

    Smiles :)

  2. I agree, summer throws us off track as it is but add the Olympics and those late nights and it is easy to get off track. I am glad you used that beautiful paper. I always tell my husband I better use my pretties or my kids will sell them a yard sale for 50 cents when I'm gone. Enjoy your weekend.

  3. Can't wait to see what you got. Yes, this summer has been very busy.

  4. Sometimes we have to do the mundane things to get to the good stuff. Sometimes we just feel rather out of it and can't decide what to do. I have lots of days like that. Was really on a crochet roll before my friend Mona came but now I've just been visiting and hanging out, not much else. Why do we save stuff? Doesn't make much sense. Good you put that drawer liner to use. And you did get something done with your applique so that's a good thing. Looking forward to seeing what Nancy Jo sent you. Have a super Saturday. Tammy

  5. I have their rose scented paper lining the drawers! I love it. And since the box held the scent I tucked it on the shelf of my closet.
