No, I am not going to work on the mystery quilt. (I put all the little pieces and completed squares into baggies. This one is definitely on my back burner!) I will be working on my grandson's birthday quilt. His birthday was last week but I won't see him until February and I want to see his face when he opens it. It is going to be a very simple quilt because I want to keep as much of the fabric intact as possible.

Other busy stuff? Well, I took a vacation day on Friday and spent the day with some of my "sisters" (of the Society of Sexy Sewing Sisters fame). We had a great time even though it was CRAZY cold. On Friday evening, my DIL arrived from Virginia. She came to help me organize my basement! Isn't that incredible?! Saturday was spent running stuff to the Salvation Army and organizing and labeling all of the plastic totes in my basement. Saturday night Sally's former neighbor came to have dinner with us. Sunday we literally laid around all day - couch, my nesting chair, bed. It was a GREAT weekend!
I returned to work yesterday and then took another vacation day yesterday so that I could enjoy ALL of the inauguration festivities. What a day! I was so excited and proud and weepy - a regular hormonal freak out! Seriously, one of those days that I will remember for the rest of my life.
Back to work...and reality...today.
