What a lovely lot of reading you gave me for the holidays!!! I enjoyed all the different takes on the question, julie was randomly generated...by random number generator.....as the lucky commenter. Congratulations and drop me a line Julie.I got the general impression that these are the quilting housewife's strategies for a happy home....
a. the house is pretty much in order...or looks it on the surface!
b. it looks like we took more than just 2 minutes to heat DH's meal (even if we didn't!!!)
c. the level of love and attention he receives comes in at least slightly ahead of the sewing machine..(or so he thinks...???)
d. the stash has at least half of it out of his direct line of sight.
The scary thing is that makes it really sound like an addiction, as a secretive alcoholic or gambling wife may pretty well stick to a similar plan of attack!!!
...the level of love he receives comes in at least slightly ahead of the wine bottle/poker machines
...At least half the bottles are out of sight!/as are the bank statements!
My Dh does always say they'll eventually find a cure for it! Just as long as it aint rehab with the beehived Amy W!
Easter was beautiful here, all perfect autumn days, we even went to the beach! School holidays finish today and my girl has the flu. My sister was here on Tuesday and successfully passed it on...thanks Sis!! I feel a little like it may be creeping up on me as well, but with feeding new calves and "crutchers" who shear the wool off the sheep's nether regions prior to lambing, and trying to have School holiday playdates I haven't time to succumb.
Not much sewing has managed to occur in all this,
I did have a play with some more plastic coated fabric I found. I am very happy with these and think Julie will probably see one in her mail box soon.
I have also attached the binding to my Lone Star, so look out for that very soon..I may finally have a finish for May Britt's challenge!
The farm books and tax planning are calling me...oh happy day!!!...so i better run-I think neglecting the farm bookwork to blog would start a whole new list of housewife strategies so i had better not go there!
Have a great day, Tracey
