I took today and yesterday off work. Because people expected me to be at work, I didn't get any phone calls (except for the phone call from UPS telling me that the bank had sent me a check for $25,000 but had neglected to pay the $99 shipping and handling fee. That's a seriously heavy check.). I finally got a chance to do some cleaning. Everything isn't really spring-cleaning clean, but it does look much better than it did, and hopefully I can get into the closets and nooks and crannies a little at a time going forward.

The dryer is still under warranty. Making the appointment was incredibly easy. I might be able to get dry clothes this weekend!

I found out that the optical illusion quilt I was trying to design has already been designed in full force. Look here. It did seem strange that it hadn't been attempted before. I think I might still try to do it the way we designed it to see how we did. At least that way I can say it was inspired by the antique quilt, and not by something more modern. That ruler is mighty tempting though.

Hi -
don't you love home days sometimes? I do.
Good luck on the illusion quilt - let us know how it goes!
