George is Here

George has arrived.  He is still in a box.  I cannot put this "stuff" together (back problems) so thus Claudia made an attempt.  We managed to get the table up but there is some knobs in the package (no directions).  The picture shows the table with the knobs but we cannot figure out how to get them on. 

Here is a picture of the box with George inside it.  You must read the bottom.  You will have to click on the picture to make it large enough to see.   I checked this, and I had trouble reading it blown up, so here is what it says.........
Caution - Extreme Excitement Bundled Inside
Contents may cause excessive hugging, squealing, jumping and fist-pumping.  APQS has a sense of humor. 

There is things on my design wall, but you have seen them in this stage before, so I will chatter about something else.  Here are pictures of my garage.  I am in the process of cleaning up my sunporch and closets.  I have more storage boxes ordered.  I will fill up all the empty spaces.  And my sunporch is going to look terrific especially when I get George in there.  Here is hoping anyway.

I am putting everything in plastic containers with the hopes that the little critters will not nest in them.  And because of all of this fabric, fabric shops are not going to get rich on me next year.  I have just created a quilt pattern.  I had all the fabric that I needed except for the background.  I ordered that.  That is what I am going to do this year.  I am only buying what I absolutely need.  If I don't this fabric is going to be here when I "kick the bucket."  That is not good.  So between bags, pillowcases and quilts I should be able to use a lot of it up with the grace of God. 

It is getting cool.  The day started out warm and humid and rainy.  It has been getting cooler all day and by tonight it is going to be cold. 

Hope all is well on your end........


  1. Hopefully it will be many years before you leave this earth and you will have time to replenish that stash a couple dozen times over!

    Congratulations on your new live in (george!) LOL.

  2. Congrats on your "extreme excitement" bundled in that box!! I bet that sun porch is going to be very cozy with you and George hanging out in there.

  3. Wow the garage doesn't look the same with all your organizing! Can't wait to see George.
