Ok, I'll admit it. I've been goofing off when it comes to blogging. Yesterday I was thinking about it. But I started reading a novel and didn't put it down until several hours later when I finished it. And then I knew I HAD to paint baseboards in the studio or I was going to be putting DH way behind. So, no posting yesterday when I normally would have. And, I'll admit now, I probably won't be posting a Triangle Thursday either. I have several things I need to finish before Friday and I just may not be able to dedicate the time to the triangles.
Here's the long hallway with the baseboards installed. That's some of the 210' of baseboard I've painted. And, argh, a lot of it I need to put the second coat on still. Double argh!

ready to load up.

Here's part of the stuff that was removed from the shelving. I'd like to start putting it back on but I'm still trying to figure out where I want things to go.
And, on to the goals. Evidently I put way too much on the goals list!

Hopefully next week I'll be on schedule for Design Wall Monday. You can still go to Patchwork Times and see what's going on Design Walls around the internet.
I've got to end now because Pat is ready to put shoe molding on and I'm only half done with the second coat of paint. Honestly, my hip joints hurt so badly while trying to get these baseboard painted that I can only do an hour and then I need a break. I'm too old to paint anything! (But I bet we do our own painting when the old studio gets repaired, refreshed and made into a grand kid cave!)
I'm looking forward to actual quilting time but not much will be happening on that for a while!
