Back to Reality

Well, my lovely mother-in-law flew home today.  She has been here since Thursday, and I wish she could stay longer!  Love that woman!

Since she was here on vacation, I got to take a vacation.  Back to work tomorrow.  Sigh.

Annette's Purple Quilt

Today I am posting a pic of the quilt commission from our friend Anthony to his wife Annette for their anniversary. As you can tell, she is a purple person!

This is one of the Nickel quilts from Pat Speth. I can't remember the name right now.....

Anyway, I really like this quilt. I had it quilted with a large meander.

Annette cried when she got it! Happy tears!

Take care!

Oh rah! Hubby found where he filed my quilty photos! Today I am showing the quilt that I helped my dear quilt student (I use her as a substitute daughter, as mine lives too far away!) make for her inlaws anniversary.

This is her first quilt, and I am bursting with pride!

Isn't it a lovely String X quilt? The fabric is mostly cowboy themed, as that is what her inlaws love. The backing is a denim-printed cotton. She is making this quilt in green and pink for her daughter's room, then we move on to a more difficult string quilt (pics will be posted!).

Take care, all! I should really be putting piles of fabric and yarn away. My lovely MIL is coming in tomorrow for a few days! We haven't seen her for more than a year!

The months have flown!!

I can't believe I haven't blogged since November! Between being sicker than I have been in 20 years, taking care of my disabled sister, and taking care of my sick hubby, I haven't had time to breath!

I have been spending at least 2 days a week taking care of sis (she has MS and has lost most of her sight and the use of her legs since February), and at least 2 days a week helping hubby with our business. Whew!

I have been feeling very put out that I haven't had any me time. What a sissy! Most women I know have to work 40 hours a week, plus housework and taking care of kids and husbands. I have been spoiled, and need to get real. My life is changing, and I have to adapt.

I want to have me time, but it will not be as much as I had before. Such is life.

I will post pics when hubby tells me where he filed them.

Take care!
