What day is today?

All day long I thought today was Friday! Goodness, I'm all messed up.  Last Sunday I thought it was Monday.  I hate it when I get messed up on days and dates, but it seems to happy a lot. I could be that I never read a newspaper or watch TV anymore.

I didn't know until today the world was supposed to end! I heard the radio DJ ( are they still called that?) say something about needing to pay a bill but was gonna wait to see if the world ended or not. HUH? I had to ask Joseph what he was talking about. Apparently it didn't happen so I guess he needs to pay the bill.

I went to take some items to the Post Office, but since it is Saturday they were closed by the time I got there. I don't know about everywhere, but our PO closes REAL early on Saturday. That was when I discovered it was Saturday and not Friday. GRRR!

In the sewing room all I have been doing is cutting scraps to a usable size.

From the scrap box under the cutting table to ...
 nice strips ready for the strip boxes.

I have also been playing in the Civil War fabrics deciding if I want a brown Birds in the Air top or a Red...

Birds in the Air

What do you think? I'm always a brown fan, but for some reason the red is calling my name.  I don't have enough 1/2 yard pieces so I will be making mine a bit more scrappy than the pattern is. I don't have a problem with that. The more the merrier is my motto.
I wonder though, if I should sew some of the UFOs I have already waiting for me or start cutting this? Linda G would tell me to get busy with those I have cut! Maybe I will just pick the fabric and set them aside for a while until I get some more work done. I can hear Linda in my head...yes mam.

Choosing between brown and red??? Impossible! Make both and send one to your sister in law. :) Either would be AMAZING!
