Getting back to normal

It's kitchen cleaning week here...I have a clean fridge and a clean oven...tomorrow...I will work on the floors and then Friday...I am emptying out all the cabinets and re-arranging...I can't reach half the stuff I need because tall people put it I will adjust the kitchen to me!

We had a wonderful Christmas...full of loud, smiling, laughing grown-ups and babies and all ages in between...did I say LOUD?...It has been a hard week adjusting to so little noise...I miss noise and little bodies in my way and under my feet!

Today I made a cover for something I got for Christmas (specially picked out by my DIL, the cover was so easy and I made it in less than 30 I still have to hem it...after I decide if I am going to add a pocket and/or embellish it with 'something'. This is the pattern I used I also still need to press it.

THIS is what my cover covers...I finally got one and I will be making bread tomorrow...for the first use of my much coveted Kitchenaid mixer in RED!!!!

...and now for what makes me a NUT...I found some purple fingernail polish that I actually LIKE....not too dark, not too light...just right!

OH how much fun you are having. There is something soothing about getting the house back to normal.
Congrats on the kitchen aid and welcome to the club. I use mine about 3 x a week and that is since the kids have moved out! :)
Nice purple too :)

Oh look - Prisoner Spice was here too - hiya Mickie!! Nice mixer cover, Purple Bella - I haven't made one yet for my KA, and I've had it for ... errrrrrrrrr .... 8 months! Is that pattern a good fit? I should just whip one up, and stop vacillating so much on fabric choices!
