It seems like it has been forever since I last wrote and upon checking when the last time I actually wrote something other than my weekly daybook, it has been a life time.
What have I been doing you may ask? Well, feel free to ask…Oh I’ll just tell you. Everything, but sewing – so it seems anyways. I haven’t actually touched my sewing machine or a needle since about March 16, which is very sad. I’ve had things to do, but just haven’t had the time to do so.
On March 16 I finished my scissor keeper as well as the court house blocks for my figgy pudding quilt and all of the small Christmas trees,
but once I realized I ironed the big trees wrong I decided that was my sign to quit while I was ahead. Since then, nothing. But it isn’t like I haven’t been busy. I took my grade 6 band to festival (all 140 of them – that is the small group) and they won an award, I had parent teacher interviews Thursday and Friday (I saw one person over two days), attended a cowboy funeral (it was wonderful actually), I cleaned, grcocery shopped, put my back into a spasm, had dinner with friends, dragged Nate to the book store to purchase a magazine (it was my way to celebrate National Quilt Day because I couldn’t sit at my machine with my back spasming), had church, more spasms, a dinner party at a mystery place on a card (long story) and have been out and busy every other night this week with something or other. I might have some time tonight to sew which I would be thrilled with, since my Bible Block in not complete at all.
Oh and in the mean time I found the perfect bag to make my swap partner and am now awaiting fabulous fabric from www.aboveallfabric.com.
Well, now you know where I’ve been.
