I've been busy making mask for my community and DD's PT clinic.  Getting pretty tired of them.  DD is a physical therapist and suggesting that their patients not come in unless really needed--like post op.  Few patients so they have had her working at the hospital checking temps of the staff coming in to work.  Makes me nervous.  I do keep all the frontline workers in my prayers.  

Anyway, with the fabrics I have been using for the masks, I am making tiny houses. In the doorways I went through my novelties and found kids and animals that look like they are wanting out! I need to get caught up but want to make one a day for each day of isolation.  Let's hope it isn't a very big quilt!

She came to stay after the birth of our first son and 4 days after getting home from the hospital she had me out washing windows while she took care of the baby.

I would have kept the baby and let HER wash the windows-LOL

Those house blocks are super-special, Lynne.  What a clever idea!!

My mom was also a total clean freak but not as bad as yours. Her attitude was more of a "house proud" kind of thing because she grew up so poor. As an adult she was proud of having nice things so they had to be kept absolutely spotless. My DM would hum and sing as she did the housework, something I never understood. I'll bet your mom did her housework with grim determination.  LOL

Gosh ... that's pretty intense .... out washing windows four days out of hospital ...

I did some low-key spring cleaning when first married.  I remember calling my sister-in-law and we'd discuss our "progress" ... Like you, I toned it down a lot when the kids arrived.

Your little houses are so cute!  Have to say that I share your hope that it doesn't turn into king-size quilt ...

Happy Easter!

Give me some ideas please!

And that is why I started making improv quilts. I just began with colors and then shapes and a set of self imposed rules to put it together............kinda fun and very addicting. I know it is not for everyone but for me I have been making improv quilts for over 10 years, well even longer because my first was during the art image challenge way back. Great way to begin is with the scrap bin and just mess around.
