Cleaning the basement
The art quilters group is coming on Monday so I need to get the basement cleaned up again. When I was painting the wall where the gas meter used to be, I had to move my daughter's doll house. Now it is time to move it back to a storage area.
One of our good friends made the doll houses and there were several styles to choose from. Another friend sold the furniture at her shop and I traded patchwork pillows to her to sell. The drawers all open in that tiny chest of drawers. We never got motivated to paint the house. My daughter says I can try to sell all of it so I hope I can find a buyer. It is all from the early 1970's.
I pulled some more thistles and dandelions for my daily dose of gardening. It was in the high 60's today so it was really pleasant outside. We need rain though. Some areas are like concrete. I left the dandelions there until after the rain this weekend.
