What a Way to Spend a Weekend!

This is all for necessities sake! I'm off on a heavenly retreat early Tuesday morning and must have my house in order before I go. I'm much better than I used to be as a 'neat freak'! Often it gets out of hand the other way, now - I'll blame Quilting and Blogger!

Above - some of my gorgeous Birthday Fat Quarters from Peg, Kris, Dale, Anita, Kate and one from Shari, too - oh, thank you so much Girls! Maree has organized the Swap, thanks, Maree - I am really enjoying it and hope to continue next year - what do you think, Girls? - or do you have other plans, Maree?

Now, to Happy Houses - they are coming in nice and early! These cuties are from Cathy of Highland Quilter - thanks so much, Cathy. I have others, too - this was just the first lot I stumbled across whilst tidying up!

And here's my tidy office corner where I sit and chat so much - naughty Blogger lives here, too, as you can see! This is where the weekend's tidy-up started - papers all organized and in plastic sheet protectors - Giveaways organized - bills paid! Oh, just too good - off to the shop to get some dinner now and buy a folder for my Blogland tutorials and other trivia - some icecream for the Littlies, who will be here soon - then hopefully off to do some tidying in the sewing room!
I hope you are managing to get more sewing done than what I have - at least I have attended to a few necessities!
Happy Weekend - hugs♥

The houses, the fabrics and then the organization and cleanliness - you're ready for that retreat for sure. Someday when I grow up I want to be like you! :)
