February 2, 2008 - A break from quilting

Our living room hasn't been painted for 7 years. It's time. Since we changed from blue furniture to brown, we thought red would be a good choice. So... I spent a good number of days removing art, moving furniture and basically getting the living room, dining room. and kitchen ready to paint. No time for quilting. We hired someone to do the painting for us. 2 sides of the room are red, 2 sides are cream.

Conveniently, we were leaving town for a vacation in the Caribbean, so it worked out for the painter to work while we were gone.

Once we got home, I had all the laundry from before vacation and after vacation, plus putting the house back together again. Last night I was so weary of hanging art, and dusting and sorting books to put back on bookshelves, I decided it was time to do some sewing. I now have 32 nine-patches made, and need to make 22 more.

OK, does anyone know how to move photos and text so they are interspersed? Silly blogger.
