Time Away

Well how did it happen?  Feb.  is almost over and i have hardly worked on any sewing projects at all. Where does the time go.  Well my time for the past 10 days has been in california,  i went to visit my best friend and we had a wonderful visit together,  i also got to visit with two of my brothers and also my beautiful nieces.
So no sewing pictures today but i will share some of the pictures from my trip,  i do have to say it was really strange to not do any quilting or sewing the whole vacation.  I found myself alot of times thinking about what project i would work on when i got home,  and i have been home for 3 days now and have i touched anything sewing wise,  nope nothing, nada,  but i am hoping to change that today.

thanks for stopping by and i hope you will stop back soon

Getting Caught up

Well i havent been able to blog in weeks thanks to my children....they came home from school one day with a new website with games they wanted to play on...ok sure they can play that because it was educational.  Well i got them all set up and then went about my business....fast forward to the next morning when they went merily off to school.  I couldnt do anything on my laptop,  everytime i hit enter all kinds of windows would open.  It was driving me nuts,  so i finally got my husband to fix it,  he kept saying he would get to it and before you know it he forgot again,  we have a crazy hectic life and if i dont stay ontop of him well it gets forgotten.  Lessong learned from this...do not let 6 young children hover around your laptop and not stay right there or else something gets messed up.  So now i am back to blogging,  i have been busy sewing and will get some things posted this week.
For now here are 2 pictures from my cell phone.
This one is my first block for my Swoon quilt

And this darling baby quilt for a friends baby,  all with moda's lilly will line....i know its not the best picture but i was in a hurry this morning.

I am sending this off today to my fabulous long armer http://charismascorner.com/ stop by her website and check out all the beautiful quilts,  her work is amazing.  

Well thats all for today,  its a relief to be back to blogging but i need to get off here and get things done before i go for my hair appt.  I am so excited to go get my hair done,  its been far to long,  it seems like i never take time for myself because i am always running kids somewhere or making something for them and there just never seems to be a 3 hour window of time for me to go and get my hair done but its long overdue  and I know i will feel so much better about myself after i get it done.

have a blessed day
