Not sewing but checking it off my list!

I am so happy to say that I finally got the clothing switch taken care of. Those people in the south won't understand the job this can be. I had to haul out the tubs and bring on the sweaters and warmer clothing that have been languishing in their spot all summer. It is a little exciting to see clothes you haven't seen for a season. And I did take the time to weed out some clothes to be donated. Always a good thing.

One other thing I forgot to share was the speaker at our Guild meeting on Monday night. Dalen Keys offered a delightful presentation about his experiences with writing and quilts. His wife is the quilter and he is the writer. He has self published a book called Just A Quilt? which is about a little boy who uses a quilt for so many different things. All about using imagination. The quilt in the book was inspired by another quilt made by his wife. I bought the book, quilt pattern, cut strips for the quilt and a special ruler. The quilt was such a happy quilt and hard to resist. You can find more information at

Sewing for sure tomorrow!


  1. Oh, Nancy - I remember changing the clothes for each major season about this time of the year when I lived in Colorado Springs. I too loved seeing the "new" clothes again and was VERY grateful when they still fit!! Ha! Ha! Glad you are sewing tomorrow!!!

  2. Keep some warm weather clothes out for the weekend. Temps in the 70s!

  3. I had to do the clothing switcheroo a few weeks ago- it gets cold up here in the New England area! Brrr!!
