House Bound

Last week, there was a heavy rain that resulted in the basement flooding. Now we get the lovely scent of mildew when we run the air conditioning. Great.
I don't know when we're getting out of town for the holiday. The Man has to work tomorrow. I hopefully will get another re-write of a pattern off to my editor. She didn't answer if she was working the rest of the week. I'm of the opinion that not much gets done with this holiday falling in the middle of the week.
No real housekeeping got done despite my being home today. I'm coming off an eight day work week, so I guess I'm allowed to be lazy. I really need to buy some household items. Did you know that you can wear out sheets? The Man has worn holes into some flannel ones. I've never worn out a sheet on my own. I need some more storage containers for my ever increasing vest wardrobe, and to store Piccolo's wardrobe until this fall. So, tomorrow, I'm going to look for some stores.
In knitting progress, I'm 3/4 done with a CeCe in grey Debbie Bliss Rialto. Just one more sleeve, and then the raglan shaping to do. I'm 4/5 done with the navy cabled cardigan. I'm knitting the yoke now. It's a lot of finishing for this baby, with 5 pieces to sew together.
The photo is a Kaffe Fassett needlepoint pillow, on my Ruth Stegmeyer quilt, with a bear from my Steiff collection.

eh, I hate to ask because I think the answer is obvious - did you make the quilt and the pillow?

They are fabulous! Oh, how I long to finish a needlepoint project...and I only buy the big, huge ones...

I did the needlepoint from a kit, many years ago, and had a needlepoint shop handle assmembling it into a pillow. The quilt was purchased in 2005 at the Fine Art of Fiber, and was made by Ruth Stegmeyer. My mom owns a quilt by her too, and it's lovely.
