GOOD MORNING WORLD! And this is how I’ve been feeling lately as most of you may be feeling also. This quarantine WILL NOT get me down. Besides I have so much to get caught up on.
It seems like life has had me caught up in its whirlwind of every day living. For the past ten years it’s been hurry, hurry, hurry. I have to get this done so I can do that. Maybe you’ve been feeling the same bug as me.
I got up in the morning, gulped down my toast and coffee then it was off to critique groups, meetings for the city, breakfast with the girls (been doing that for close to twenty years), doctor visits, Bible study class, and that’s naming just a few. Did I mention clean house, laundry, and all those necessary things you have to do to live. Don’t let me forget grocery shopping! I kind of long for that right now, but thank you Amazon and my local HEB grocery delivery.
Are you going to ask me if I’ve gotten any writing done??? I stepped back to give my finished legacy a rest. Yes, it is finished and I’m waiting to look at it with fresh eyes.
Last year, especially, I got caught up in going to all the quilt shops with friends and hubby (bless him) took me to some special shops while on some of our trips. Well, I bought more than I could ever do in a year so here I am playing catch up, trying to clean out my bins of kits. Slow but sure. I don’t think I will ever be a fantastic quilter but I’m trying….one block at a time.This is my first attempt to a nine patch lap quilt. Maybe a wall handing? I still need to put a border on it then…
Then there is my genealogy. For the past five years I’ve made copies from Ancestry then thrown it in a pile behind my desk. Well, now it’s time I finally put the copies in the right families book and finish off the book. Maybe even make it into a hard back. In fact that has been my dream for a long time. Okay, it’s off we go to see what and where today takes me.
Until then my friends……………
I love the picture of Holly! It looks like she’s quite contented to have you home! 🤗
Ahhh the gift of quilting is such a beautiful thing. I don’t possess that gift and am in awe when I see what you and other dear friends have done.
So thankful for you, dear sister-in-Christ! You are a precious blessing in my life!
