It's been a while...

So I know I haven't updated in a few weeks, it's been a bit of a challenging couple weeks.  Two weeks ago, we went through another round of lay-offs at work, and my number happened to come up in this one.  We all knew it was coming, and I tried to prepare myself "just in case". But then it happened and things were set in a bit of a whirlwind.  Anywho, I'm one to always look for the silver-lining, so I'm using this time for a little self-discovery and figuring out what I really want to do in life! 

So I've spent lots of time with the little kitty, working on my Pure Romance business, and doing things I couldn't have done while I was working (watch some tv, going with Mom to pick up Grandma, did a bit of a color job on the hair-okay, so I could have done that anyways...just never got to it), and making a list of all the things I've always wanted to do, but never have.  There will be cooking classes with mom, mornings at the pool, doing a thourough clean through the house, and so many more things thru life!

And crazy enough, I haven't done a lot of sewing!!  What???  I have done quite a bit of hand sewing on the batik flower garden, but not much with the sewing machine!  I know...  But we are still going at it with our 3 Young Chicks and a Hot Hen!  In fact, I finally remembered to take photos this week of our current project!  We are all working on Disappearing 9-Patche quilts.  Dani and Katie (and Mom) are making theirs with batiks, and I am making mine with a stash of fabric that's been sitting for a while waiting to be made into something.  We're all about at the point of making our 9-patch blocks, ready to cut-flip-resew!

And of course, a lot of ironing going on!

Oh how I love our Tuesday nights!!  Thankfully I have that with my girls, helps me to keep the days straight a bit, and love the time with others! 

Well, I'm off to cut a bit more batiks for the Flower Garden that I'm working on!  Have a glorious day!

Always,

as far as doing stuff, i've always found that when you have money u don't have the time, when you have the time you don't have the money
