2000th post in 5 years.............

2000th post today.  My 5 year blog anniversary will be July 4th. Lots of milestones lately.  My next big project is to cut fabrics for colorwash quilts.  They won't be for sale until August because it will take me that long to pull the fabrics, press them, cut them and sort into kits.  I have started pulling the fabrics in my spare time.  I started with reds because I have so many of them.  Busy and multicolor prints work best so that is what  this pile represents.
Yesterday I went out to eat with my cousin, his wife and her mother and then helped them load the china cabinet into their truck. When they left I ended up having to call a plumber for a clogged kitchen sink drain which meant emptying out everything in the sink cabinet.Then I got ready for a quick garage sale today.  My neighbors have a large sale every year and they advertise.  My garage has had a lot of my dad's things in it since last Aug. when we moved him to the assisted living home.  I'm hoping to gain the space back with one day of sales.  I'm also hoping for a lazy day soon!

Wow, 2000!! I have been blogging just as long as you and haven't hit 1000 yet! Amazing. Love the reds. It seems that I have an overwhelming amount of reds in my stash too. I am pulling them to make my daughter a college quilt.

Wow, I have been blogging over four years and am still under 800 posts.
Those reds look yummy - like a big pile of summer berries.

Mary said...

I love the fabrics you've already pulled. Congratulations on these milestones!

Congratulations on your 2000th post and upcoming anniversary...some pretty major milestones!

Good luck getting that "to do" list done! Lazy day? What's that?

Fabulous reds!

Yes, you do deserve a lazy day to sit and read, or enjoy your flowers, or play with cobblestone bits, or just sit and watch the clouds go by.

You are one BUSY and amazing lady!

Congratulations on 2000 posts! Those are gorgeous reds! Put me down for one of those colorwash packages! I'd love to try my hand at one of those.

You deserve a lazy day, but I am inclined to think you are the type of person who doesn't sit still much.

Congrats on the posts!

Congratulations on the 2000th post and soon to be 5 years of blogging. The reds are beautiful! I had a neighbor that was suppose to have a garage sale, but it hasn't happened yet. I have a whole pile of stuff I gathered in the garage for the sale and now it just sits there in the way. I hope you sell a lot of stuff!

I think a lazy day is a good idea for you as soon as possible! :-)

Cathi said...

Congratulations! 2,000 posts is a huge milestone!

Those reds are gorgeous! Are you going to be selling the colourwash kits online?

Cathy R said...

Delurking to say that I can't wait for kits to go on sale!!

Good luck with the garage sale. I have spent the last six or seven months severely decluttering my house and I've really been enjoying the resulting space!

Marie said...

What an Engergizer Bunny you are! Where do you find all of it. One of these days you'll be able to put your feet up for a bit, no?

Margaret said...
