Self Preservation

I really thought that my kids Christmas break would be a slowed down version of the weekend, only maybe a little more festive. Wowsers!  The slowed down part is so not happening yet.  And why didn't anyone ever tell me that the teenager stage of parenting can suck all of the daylight out of a day?  It's a good thing I'm hopelessly crazy about my kids and know how to put my little quilting obsessions into perspective.*wink  I've been pulling out my hand quilting and trying to get a frame or two done every couple evenings just for self preservation.  (Unlike kids, hand quilting doesn't demand very much out of you.)  My goal dream is to finish the quilting part of this quilt before the new year.  It's good for a girl to have a dream.:)
