Almost back....

I am almost back to normal around our house.  Just a few finishing touches remain of the renovations. 
I haven't been able to do any sewing for months, (which is driving me nuts)  but I hope that will change really soon.    I really miss my blogging buddies and seeing all your wonderful creative goodness. 

During my exteneded blogging absence I have:
  • renovated our house (well almost a few finishing touches are needed)
  • took a trip to Phoenix
  • watched my girls compete in 3 dance competitions,(2 out of town) one show case, one recital and one grand championships (also out of town)
  • moved our son back home from university
  • celebrated my son's 20th birthday
  • had a great visit with my sister for a week (she didn't mind the dust and chaos of renos)
  • celebrated my daughter's graduation from high school (can't believe it)
  • celebrated Mother and Father's days which included a visit from my father  :)
  • celebrated my youngest daugher's 13th birthday with a surprise birthday party
  • hubby & I took a quick trip to Ontario for my BFF, from high school, daughter's wedding and a quick visit with all our family, which included a helicopter ride with my nephew as pilot
  • cleaned, cleaned and cleaned some more
  • celebrated with my daughter's entrance into Simon Fraser University :) & :(
  • moved boxes, furntiure, etc more times then I care to count.
  • not too mention all the normal things around the house that has to be done. 
  • attended the Heritage Park Festival of Quilts

Contractors should be done on Monday. Some floors on the main floor have to have a new clear coat due to some abrasion marks. Then we put it all back together again hooray!!
 I have my sewing area cleaned up.  I really hope to get to some sewing projects this week if I am lucky!
What are you working on?   You guys probably have a quilt or two finished by now!
Happy stitching everyone!



  1. Wow - even though you haven't been blogging, you certainly have been busy! Good to see you here! Happy summer!

  2. Good to hear you still around. And..good to hear, your sewing room almost will be done and ready to get creative again :-)

  3. Okay, so you've been a bit busy, is that an excuse to not quilt :) Glad to hear that the renos are pretty much done and that the family is all doing well (congrats to your daughter!). I'm hoping to get some projects finished this summer and some more videos done and uploaded. Let me know when you have time for a cup of tea :)

  4. Yay for construction being almost finished!! Sounds like you've managed to get some fun things in, too! Very glad to hear that. And I know that not being able to sew must be driving you to distraction! Can't wait to see what wonderful things you create when you're finally able to get back to it!! :)
