Do you like short weeks?
The week after a three-day weekend always messes me up. I get the days wrong and I feel like I'm missing something - not an entirely unfamiliar feeling in my neighborhood.
Life here is again adjusting to a different pace... it's mostly good, it's a little sad, it's definitely life.
It goes without saying - thank you. Thank you. You're the best. I loved the stories and I appreciated the hugs and kind thoughts. Rosie would have been fifteen next week and while she was strong and healthy for almost all of those years, everything seemed to catch up with her the last month or so.
I've been trying to get some sewing in but it seems like I've gotten to do everything but that of late. I fell a teeny bit behind getting patterns re-stocked so a couple of orders meant I spent too much time packing patterns. And then there are those mundane every-day things like laundry, groceries, bills, stuff... it begs the question - do I need a husband? Or a wife?
I'd vote for "boy toy" but I think that would just keep me distracted and then I'll be even more behind with work and chores.
I had hoped to do some "just for me... just for fun" sewing - Moda's Modern Building Blocks...
I'm trying to get other things finished so I can start cutting this...
Just in time for Fall. Lucy is 74" x 74" - and you won't believe how quickly it goes together.
A friend described the quilting as "spooktacular". Diane Tricka - she's amazing, and so is her quilting!
There are a limited number of kits - they're in the shop now - here - but they won't be available until Sunday, September 7th.
One last little thing...
Right there in the center of the picture, the little oval on what looks like a branch. It's a hummingbird. Today is the second day in a row I've seen him - her? - there. He stays a few minutes - maybe just long enough for me to see him and take a picture. A friend tells me it's a sign of good luck coming.
I'll let you know.
I doubt it will involve a "boy toy" but one never knows.
