I want to just stay home and be

Yesterday I spent most of the day at Valerie's putting together the last of MY Charity top quilts.  It is the very same pattern as the others but we laid out the blocks in a different order.  So we now have three in three different layouts.  I love doing thatThe blue on the left is Valerie's layout.  She stepped out of the box on that one as her second charity quilt.  My black one above it all is more modern looking.  This is one of the very few I have found that looks better in person than it does in the pictures.  The picture forces you to see the crosses, while in person you see more of a lattice work in the black part.
And Toastmaster meetings last night.  Then this morning doctor's appointment and on to the CAAWS building.  Martha and I spent all morning cleaning up the office.  Now that "cave" is loosely called an office.  It is used to keep Patch the Cat separated from the rest of the group because they seem to dislike each other.  Now that Frank and Greg put up the new glass doors you can see into the really really messy cluttered office. 

We spent about 3 1/2 hours working.  There was a half inch of dust and enough cat hair to fashion three additional cats.  OF course Patch is semi-long haired so he had hair everywhere!

Martha and I tossed out 2 computer CPUs, 7 keyboards, 3 telephone systems, 3 boxes of Mardi Gras beads, 14 (count them) 14 old phone books and tons of old mail from the 1990's.  The place is not totally spotless but it is actually looking good! 

Now I just want to take a good bath and be left alone in my own little corner of the world -- my quiling room!
