Fitting Quilting Into a Busy Week

The past week has been a busy one. 
I worked on cleaning the house for our visitors from Seattle. 
Our daughter, son-in-law and their 2 friends were coming to spend two nights. 

Two weeks ago I bought paint. I had a coupon--buy one can, get one can free. Without much thought I began painting the walls in guest bathroom. I don't know what I was thinking! I had to patch the small marks in the drywall so the paint and walls looked really good. Then the towel racks were worn. I refinished them. It was a week-long project. I am very happy with it. I found that the small quilt I made for The Endeavourers Challenge group went well with the colors in the flooring and the newly painted towel racks! 

The guest bathroom is ready was ready for the visitors! 
I only need to hang a new shower curtain. 
The one I found online is sold out! 
But, I found fabric to make one. 
And I think I will like it even more! 

How did I fit quilting in this week? 
1. I dropped 3 quilts off to the quilter at her store. 
I saw fabric I knew would work for the shower curtains 
and bought it, so I didn't lose out like 
I did with purchasing the online curtain.
2. I used EQ to design a shower curtain. 
The details will be appliqued. 

3. I made two Halloween potholders for the visitors! 

Then my embroidery machine got a wad of thread wound up in it. 
That was time to STOP and it goes in to get fixed!

You've been busy. I love your endeavourers quilt hanging in the bathroom and your shower curtain will complete your guest suite makeover. I hope you have a lovely time with your guests and that your machine is fixed soon :)
