Finally today I am taking the time to update my blog.  Let me tell you I have missed blogging and checking in on everyone. I have been rather busy with life and as you all know something always has to give, unfortunately it was blogging and sewing for me. 
What has kept me so busy this last month:
  • worked 3 days a week most of Oct and November
  • organized a silent auction (took over all my spare time)
  • celebrated my daughters Sweet 16
  • continue to drive the girls to dance, soccer, job every day & night
  • the usual cleaning, laundry, cooking etc.
  • get quotes on potential renovations
  • new furnace installed
  • sewing a few table runners for a ‘customer’
  • teaching  a 15 yr. old to drive
  • as of last week spending endless useless hours in the car since the roads are in such terrible condition from all the snow we have. one can’t get any where quickly
  • resigned from my job as of Dec 15th, big decision there after 13 yrs.
  • sewn a pillow top for a swap going to Ireland
Ok I think that is enough!  Now I will have to kick it into high gear to get ready for Christmas.
I have started my nephew’s quilt. Hard to decide what to make a 23 yr. old guy.  This weekend I buckled down and decided and started his quilt. I have the top done, minus a border, which I have to buy tomorrow.  I actually followed a pattern!

I hope everyone has a wonderful week!  Mine is full of Dr's and dentist appointments, quilting, shopping etc


  1. You’ve reallye been busy, and luckily most things that kept you busy are good ones!

    Belated Happy Birthday to Anna!

  2. Glad to see are back! We've missed you ;)
    You will be busier than ever now that you have quit your job! But more time to play and that will be fun for you.
    Have a great day!

  3. Welcome back - you got an amazing amount of quilting done in between everything else. I remember those days of driving kids everywhere - those driver's licenses are pure blessings!

  4. That makes me tired just reading that.
    Maybe we'll have time for tea now.

  5. What a busy girl you've been. That's quite a list you've got there! Can't wait to see the pillow that's going to ireland!

  6. Whew. Busy is an understatement, Lee! Nice to have you back - I hope you have more time for the things you enjoy.
