Happy Day!

I'm having company this weekend.  And I needed to get my house cleaned up.  It started in the guest bedroom where I had all my applique blocks neatly laid out on the bed.  One can't just stack those blocks up and put them away. 
.
I had finished this one earlier this week and it had found it's spot on the bed with the others.  So I decided to sit down and quickly put the blocks together so I could get the bed cleared off.  Several hours later, I finished the job but the house had still not been cleaned.  So tomorrow I'll have to get up extra early and get the house cleaned up before my company arrives in the afternoon.  To me, it was worth it, because this is how it turned out:


And I'm VERY, VERY HAPPY with the results.  I'm already on to the next project and have the first block of a new applique quilt done.  I think I'm addicted.

i'd stitch and forget about cleaning, too - plenty of time to clean AFTER company leaves (they're just gonna make a mess anyway, right?!?)

i have GOT to try applique again - i made such a mess of it the last time that i pretty much gave up (such a quitter, eh?)...
