Overly Ambitious Day

Okay...youngest son (Casey) is out for Spring Break and we've been doing nothing but partying for days now. I have GOT to get some stuff done today. I want to get a hunky chunk of the Spring Deep-Cleaning Thing done. I want to sew several skirts for The Hundred Skirt Project. I want to reorganize my jewelry (my pocketed hanger fell off the back of the door and all the contents spilled out). I want to start in on reshuffling around my sewing room. I want to cook and put away several meals. I want to finish two UFO sewing projects and start a new one. Obviously, not going to get to it all done today, but there it is.

To keep me really hopping, I'm going to post everything I get done today. I'll just keep updating this post. Hopefully the thought of public exposure will keep me from hanging on the couch with my kid (as important as that truly is!).

Oh you did have to remind me I'm supposed to be doing that spring cleaning thing!
I love the gray and red - That is one nice shirt.
