need something to do...........

Thanks for all the motivation and well wishes but tonight will be the do or die for the 3rd quilt.......tried to get motivated late yesterday when the head stopped pounding but as I couldn't even find the binding or rememeber if I had something I gave up.......... so if it doesn't get started tonight I will quit for now.......
........I also have 15 people coming to stay for the weekend so I have some other stuff to do also..............like clean the house and make some beds...............organise enough food..............man can they eat............and I will be making scones and choc chip biscuits and anzac biscuits and lots of other goodies...........
This weekend is a long weekend in NSW for the Queen's Birthday.........if you want something to do this weekend you can go here for the largest combined rodeo and campdraft in the southern hemisphere and for the quilty people there is a quilt display also over the weekend and this is their quilt raffle someone will get to take home with them................there is also a bush poets breakfast.....and greyhound races...............here is a summary program

  7. I think leave the binding and enjoy the company....or put everyone to work on the quilt binding......we are off to a B&B over the weekend and the kids are house (and dog sitting) then it is back to work on Tuesday for me....but in the meantime I too have binding to do.....have a great weekend!!

  10. Hey Donna! Soooo ... just out of curiosity, when were you planning to SLEEP in the next few days!!! I think you should set up a roster for all your visitors to help cook so you get to socialise some, too. Of course, there's nothing more satisfying that putting together a meal that everyone enjoys and walks away full from - so enjoy the cooking and quilting, but take time for a cuppa or two!! Bear Hugs! KRIS (Tag Along Teddies)
