Working My Fingers to the Bone!

Yes, I found my camera. But, no I don't have any pictures to share - sorry. I'll try to do better next time.

I working NONSTOP on quilts for the book! All day long. Until bedtime. Up early to start again. Making progress.....but, much more work still to be done.

I had to make a trip to Auburn Sunday/Monday to meet with the closet designer for the house. That was fun - it's nice that the builder included me in that meeting. I don't think I'll have to go back in the foreseeable future - more time to sew, yay!

While Daughter 2 is home for her Spring Break, she has a boat load of studying to do. So she studies, I sew. Works out well. I'm hesitant to cook because it would smell up the house and you never know when someone would like to see it. So we either go out to eat in the evening or nuke a Lean Cuisine.

The dogs love having another lap to sit in, and they definitely take advantage of that. Mickey is still doing well after his major back surgery. He's running and playing again, though I don't think he'll ever be 100% the way he was before. He still has a bit of a limp on his back end, though it's very minor. The surgery was definitely a success.

I haven't mentioned my parents in a long time. With our relocation, they are going to be moving to Augusta, GA, where my brother lives. My brother has lined up an apartment for my mother. And as soon as they arrive, they'll decide on an assisted living/nursing home for my father. I have taken care of them for around 9 years here in B'ham and now my brother is stepping up to take care of them. Thank you to him. I know it will be a huge transition for my mother at age 81, but hopefully she'll be happy there. I'll definitely go visit them often.

Better put down this computer and pick up my sewing! Have a great day!

Hi Julia!

I popped over from Susan's Blackberry Creek blog and it's very nice to meet you!

Your plate is certainly full with all you're trying to juggle. Bless your heart!

Methinks I heard somewhere that you're supposed to enlist all of your quiltie friends to make the sample quilts for your quiltie book. It must be really intense to do it all yourself. Did I already say Bless your heart?

Your book looks amazing and congrats on the upcoming 2nd book!

Wishing you well! Hugs
