piles

Things are piling up around here.
In the kitchen.
In the sewing room.
In the bedroom.
You know it's bad when your 2 year old says "It's like a mountain." At least the bed is made, although you'd never know ;) Hopefully I'll play catch up this weekend and maybe fit time to finish my quilt up for the Doll Quilt Swap.

Don't worry. It looks very, very familiar to me.
I have a big plans to flatten out mountains around our house this weekend too, but I have a lot projects (not just sewing) due next week.
Maybe we will need to stay in this mountainous region for a little longer.

love the quilt!

I wouldn't worry about the mountains, you've got a lot on your plate.

That quilt looks great!

Those piles look familiar...I wonder why? Oh yeah! That is right! Because I have some just like them at home! Our sock basket exploded earlier this week (a.k.a I couldn't find my favorite pair of socks) so there's that pile - and more. Sigh.

Somehow things always wait for us, don't they? Love the little quilt.

looks just like my place too, just add cat hair and it IS my place! LOL (cept the toddler, I am way past toddlers)
You know what? no one ever died wishing they had done the dishes! LOL thats my theory and I am stickin' to it!

are you sure he wasn't speaking of the 'mountain' in the quilt? love the tree. must show when done. everything else looks lived in. sometimes it's not easy to hide :)

Are you sure you didn't take those pictures at my house?

Mary said...

That looks suspiciously like my house ... Minus the groovy doll quilt.

Colleen said...

I have a few piles like that in my house, especially in the basement :)

Love the quilt! I need to try making a mini quilt sometime... I am inspired.

Hi Kate,
Hope everything is good with you and your family!
i just found your blog and it reminded me of your crafting. I love most of your work and since i try to send X-maspresents to the Dodges every year, I was wondering whether you had gift vouchers so Carol can choose what she wants and it only has to be shipped within the US. Is that possible? Do you also have manlike-things, except for the heads?
I would love to hear from you soon!

lots of love,
margo

That's so funny! Kids see things so different than we do sometimes! My kids have been making "tents" with blankets and every toy in the house piled up.

a creative mess is better than tidy idleness

My house is just as bad. Plus we don't make our beds. They get messy when we get back into them so its a waste.

I love the quilt. I like how one side of the tree is bigger and rounder giving the illusion that it is a windy day and the tree is blowing in the wind. Nice job!
