I am ever so slowly making progress on my triple Irish chain. I have stitched out all the patterns on the white blocks, and framed them with straight lines. I have auditioned a couple fills with super large basting stitches and they didn't jump up off the fabric and tell me that they looked great. So, now I am wondering if I should fill the areas on either side of the straight lines, or just leave it as-is. I really wanted to do something incredible, but I just don't see it happening.

So this past week I decided to open up a couple bathroom drawers and tossed a bunch of old junk we never use. Love that feeling! Then I went to the hardly ever use anymore filing cabinet. Since so much is stored online, I am hoping to scale back from a four drawer to a two drawer soon. Anyway, I grabbed four huge files of old bank statements and Dean and I enjoyed our new fire pit in the new backyard.
I had a glass of wine, and capped off the evening with a s'more! Yum! It makes me feel like I am camping, but I get to sleep in my own bed and enjoy that hot shower. That was so much more fun than sitting at the noisy shredder.
