Suzie Homemaker!

That's ME today! And I love it! I have filled bird feeders and bird baths. Done laundry, bought groceries, cleaned the fridge, made the bed, dusted, mopped the kitchen - you get the idea!

Washed and dried the latest crib quilt for a soon to be mama. Lisa went to Texas State with Amber so I thought her baby boy should have a 'Texas' quilt.

I used this sheet as a backing.

While it is not a real 'baby' looking quilt - front OR back -
it DID provide some pretty interesting reading!

I found this lemon oil furniture polish when I cleaned out the camper this week.
No telling how OLD it is! It says 'patent pending' on the label.
I am here to tell you that is a REALLY great polish!
It is not as oily as some and I would buy more of this if it were still available.
I was surprised Louis Dean HAD any cleaning agents in that camper!

I have a peach cobbler in the oven and BBQ brisket in the crock pot and potatoes to mash on the stove.

I love these 'Suzie Homemaker' kind of days!

Sounds like you've had a good one - I miss getting to accomplish so much! Soon I know that will change forever, ha.

That quilt turned out GREAT!

Love the quilt and the backing is awesome. I'm so far behind it's pathetic on making quilts.
