So here's the thing...sometimes life gets so busy that your sewing mojo or sewjo as Toni calls it takes a back seat. This past week I've messed up a paper-pieced block to the point of setting it aside for a few days instead of throwing it away.
I've machine-embroidered a name and flower onto Izzy's quilt top only to have the flower mess up so badly that it tore a hole in my patchwork and pulled a seam apart.
|An applique will be going there--a heart maybe??|
I've done a lot of yoga, cardio and some running to prepare for my race. Which is Sunday. YIKES!
|Oren and Emma ran the kids' marathon last Saturday and he and I ran together.|
I've (as PTO co-chair) bought and delivered 125 snacks and drinks for the 4th grade taking the FCAT Writes exam this coming week.
I've dealt with tummy troubles in Oren and potty training a puppy.
|Look at that face...|
Oh that puppy. Little Miss Daisy is so stinking cute. She's a really good girl and if you watch her, you can tell when she needs to go out. She'll usually go out and do her business and look at you like "See, see how good I am." She's playful but is yet (knocking on wood and knowing it's only a matter of time) to eat anything important.
And I just haven't had the time or desire to sew or knit much else. I had the desire to clean my sewing room, but not even the time for that. Can you imagine???
So, I'm telling myself everything in life has a season. Right now, for this week--preparing for the half marathon, dealing with Oren's issues and keeping this blasted puppy from licking her butt and then licking me in the face is all I can worry about and get done. And honestly, I don't think there's anything wrong with that.
So, thanks for stopping by. I hope you understand why it's been so quiet around here. Life calls sometimes and we have to answer. And now I'm off to take Emma to dance, attend the high school baseball game and then go to Family Literacy Night at the school so the kids can test on the books they've read recently.
I'll be back in a few days...keep tight. And if you find my sewjo--send it on this way, but don't waste money on express mail, it can take awhile, I've got time. :)
