         I delivered the baby/dog quilt on Monday and worked on various small projects all week. All I used was scraps and parts of fat quarters for a total of a quarter yard.
     Thanksgivings was quiet with just my youngest daughter and Spirit coming to visit. The girls and grandchildren went to their father's house and forgot to pass by. That's ok since we are usually gone for Thanksgivings.
        DD#1 and DGS#7 came Friday and helped us clean the area in the back that one day in 2015 will be my studio. They hauled 15 years of ugh out of that area. DH was having fits. He is a semi-hoarder and it is very hard on him to throw things way. Thankfully he got distracted with all the automotive junk that they found and it was trash day! They picked up over 20 full bags and bins of ugh! I burned another 20 in the trash pile. It hurt my heart to throw and burn all the saved science items so I understood how my husband felt!    
     We were all tired when it was done, but all I have left to do is sweep the grunge out before the carpenters get here Monday or Tuesday. It will be a bigger job that I thought. DH believed that he had gotten all the electrical work done, but after cleaning I saw that not much was done. That's ok! It only means that I can get the plugs I want where I want them. DH has committed to getting it done for me and it will be done in 2015!
   Friday morning I worked on the Bonnie Hunter Mystery using the tool she recommended, but I don't see precise enough for it to work.  Saturday morning I worked on the BHM using the Magic 8 method. I decided I love that way of making half-square triangles. I found enough of one yellow and one hot pink scraps to get a quarter of the squares done. 
    Saturday afternoon I took DH out to celebrate his double birthday. Today is his second Bday and we will either go to DD#1's house or to the local casino to celebrate a second time. While waiting for him to wake up, I will sew if Lucy lets me get up! 
Lator Gators!
