Busy Days

Where I want to be today. Just got back from a flying trip to Oregon with my daughter where I got to spend time with my oldest son as well. Good times.
My itsy bitsy quilt room
My husbands aunt died the day I returned home after some extended time in the hospital. She was getting better and then had a setback she was never able to recover from. Now we have a funeral to take care of and several of her siblings and family coming into town this later this week. Lots to do! I'm determined to squeeze one day in for me, but sometimes it's just not possible without sacrificing all my dignity. {Bathrooms do have to be cleaned etc.} Thankfully I have a stack of applique all prepped and ready to go!

  2. Sewing will be there when all is done. However it is very nice to have some easy to pick up hand work ready to go. Take care.

  3. So sorry to hear of your loss. My thoughts are with you and your family. I like seeing your quilting space. I wish more people would post pics of their quilting spaces. Years ago, my mother in law asked us to send her a photo of the Christmas tree in our new house as she wanted to "picture" us there. I have adopted that over the years and like to picture my friends in their happy space.

  14. I'm sorry to hear about your husband's aunt but it's absolutely the right thing for you to prioritise some 'me' time in the middle of all your family commitments, just to keep you sane: you seem to have spent the past few months putting everyone else first.

  18. I do hope you can take some time for some applique. It's so good for our well-being, I believe.

  19. It seems to me that you do manage to squeeze in a lot of sewing when you are very busy with other things as well. "A body in motion stays in motion," I think!

    Best wishes to you all. It's a sad reason to be getting together again.

  20. Hey Audrey I just caught up to your last few posts. My gosh you have a lot going on and you still manage to keep your creative spark. Hopefully things will calm down after the funeral. Bet your fingers are just twitching to sew with the new thread your husband gave you!
