Missing you

I’m really missing the interaction that I usually look for in this awesome online sewing and quilting community. I’m also missing my sewing time as there has been very little of that lately.

Life has been busy and there have been other priorities. We closed on our new house Friday, moved in on Saturday. We bought a new car since my husband’s commute now demands we become a two car family. All of this is very exciting, but I am still up to my eyeballs in boxes, my future sewing room is begging for some attention and those darn kids still want to eat several times every single day!

Meanwhile, my oldest started kindergarten Thursday (does this seem insanely early to anyone besides me?) and the middle daughter began preschool yesterday. We had to buy a new fridge because the one in the house was way too small for a family of 5 and then we found out it was manufactured in 1984! The dog escaped from the yard and we caught him tearing apart the neighbor’s garbage (welcome to the neighborhood!) so we had to fix the fence, and my husband removed the door to the utility room to install a kitty door so the dog will stop trying to eat the litter only to find that the hinge broke off with some wood from the door attached.

Today, though, I escaped and forgot all about all there is left to do and all that will be discovered to do and went to my first ever quilt guild meeting. I am now a due paying member of the St. Louis Modern Quilt Guild! It was so much fun to see what some of the members learned in a Jacquie Gering workshop last month and to see what people had finished during show and tell. I hope that I have something of my own to share very soon. Perhaps it will be “The Secret Project”. (wink)

    Hope things settle down soon for you–sounds like those kids are old enough to fend for themselves when you need to quilt instead of demanding food. lol Enjoy your little ones while you can; they grow up way too fast. Hoping to see your work up soon!

    My word! You have had a lot going on! I understand because we moved from IL to AL in June. Replacing the carpet with hardwood has slowed our getting settled, but we are getting there:)
