So I guess one room will just have to have boxes for the time being! I can live with it and hubby can live with it, and since they don't live here they can deal with it! if not they don't need to come visit til they are put away.... see I'm not always a push over Betty!
Today has been a great day to get things done... now I can't wait for the granddaughter to go home so I can get more sewing and quilting done! I'm on a roll that I don't want to stop!

I can honestly say that I don't suffer most days from empty nest syndrome... how can I? they are either here asking me to do their laundry, to baby sit or use the computer! its not like they don't have instant messenger of one sort or another on their cell phones.... or have access to the library... its the fact that they think everyone stays up all night like them... not!!! at least not this household... life is too short to miss the daytime! I have too many other things in life I'd much rather enjoy than seeing the darkness!
I've been printing pp patterns off left and right, got a few blocks completed, a few pieces of fabric cut, working on spring cleaning, and laundry something that is a never ending process here, if its not ours its theirs.. or fabric of course.... which I was almost as much as our laundry... great thing to have to clean! well guess I'd best get back to working, I want to work on the quilt that I'm hand quilting since I've not had much chance to piece anything today...
hope everyone has had a great beginning of the week, I know some have had rain and snow, I know its been nasty!

Well, what can I say? I've been a quilter for over 20 yrs.. I'm a mom to 3 sometimes wonderful kids.. note the sometimes... right now they aren't so wonderful... they think I'm the bank of mom at the moment and I keep telling them the bank of mom has closed and is on the verge of foreclosing on them! they don't seem to get it! what kid does? They are 32, 29, and 28, and I've 6 beautiful grandchildren. A granddaughter -Mercedes who's 10, a granddaughter -Amyrah who's 7, a grandson -Hunter who's an angel in heaven watching ovef us whk would have been 5 in August, a granddaughter -Alayja who's t, a grandson -Chase who is 4 and a granddaughter - Mari'ana who's 3 months. I've been adjusting to single life since the beginning of January of 2008. It's been a difficult transformation.
My gran taught me to quilt a long long time ago (I must of been about 6 or 7 maybe younger), when I was at the point of.... why in the world would any one 'want' to make their own blankets or quilts when you can go and buy them? She also taught me to make my own clothing... of which I was eternally greatful for! Go figure! That one made sense to me! At least I didn't have to wear clothing that looked like every other teenage girl in school... I could be individual! that I thought was great! I am ever so greatful that she taught me to do these things. If she would have left it to my mom to teach me I never would have learned! Mamma never did much sewing past the occasional patching of holes we made or darning of socks.
Well, guess by now you've gotten bored, and I'm ready to start back to piecing some blocks, so until next time!
