Hmm what do you say about yourself? I am a Quilter. I just love to Quilt for myself and others. I love fabrics and threads, simple things, but they make me very happy.

  1. So, so true! I’m converted….my next year’s resolution is not to dust until it is at least the same as Miss Haversham’s dining room in Great Expectations lol. M X

    I love the poem. However, I will still have to dust, just really quickly!

    Hi Jan, the sun shone on a thick layer of dust the other day so I started an Autumn clean – obviously I must have missed Spring. DH likes things to be tidy (I always keep my sewing room door shut) but never notices dust. When you sent the ‘Dust if you must ‘, I read it out to him. There you go, he said, you have learnt lots of good things from Jan so you had better take notice and throw the duster away 🙂
    Thank you Jan xxx

    So true. Wasn’t it Quentin Crisp who said something about the fact that dust didn’t keep increasing if you left it alone?

    Just found the Quentin Crisp quote ‘There is no need to do any housework at all. After the first four years the dirt doesn’t get any worse.’

Thank you for visiting my Blog, I hope you found it interesting and that you will come again in the future. Please feel free to leave a comment I will reply to all. Many thanks. jansmusingagain
