Can’t Have Anyone Over Syndrome!

I will have to admit my house has gotten so bad I don't even want to live in it.  All I have wanted to do lately is sew hence the dust and dirt has piled up.  Now I never wanted to be known as the lady whose obituary said she was known for the cleanest house but this is ridiculous.   So the last few days have been spent cleaning showers, floors, windows and all the other things that don't have anything to do with quilting.

Now back to what I enjoy.
I have been participating in the BOM Comfort & Joy at Sweet Home Quilt Company my local quilt shop because I really needed another applique' project.




The first two months were just piecing -  nine patch, flying geese,








churn dash, log cabin and half sq. triangle blocks ...with one little sq. in a sq. block.


Month three was this little applique house and this month we made a snowman and a flag.










I think this is going to be a sweet little Christmas quilt when finished.

I solved the problem of a clean house by having someone else do the cleaning for me every other week :) Beautiful blocks!!

I love your blocks. I am working on the Comfort and Joy also. I am working on the snowman block.
Arent we lucky to have Sweet Home Quilt Company?
One of my favorite quilt shops.
House cleaning for me is hitting the high spots when I can. I am lucky my husband doesnt have to have a hot meal every night.

I am so glad I am not the only one.. You should see this place. I had to clean off my desk because I couldn't see any tiny little spot of the desk. The sewing studio looks like it exploded. I am glad you got a lot done so now you can sew. I love your hidden treasures!
