Too busy to sew!

Boy, weekends like this one will make a quilter batty!! (Pun intended!) I haven't sat at the machine in so long, and I'm missing the time.....

Saturday was consumed with errands. And not the fun kind. Vehicle maintenance, I know it has to be done, but..... Just too much to mention and nothing really interesting. Sunday, we did go to church. Dear Younger Daughter is feeling so much better, just the tiniest little cough remains. But, we were so tired, we came home and slept all afternoon and I don't know what I would have done, if I hadn't gotten a nap! Love Sunday naps, don't you???

Yesterday, I drove Dear Mother about 2 1/2 hours away to meet her sisters. They live about 5 1/2 hours from us, and with Spring Break this week, I know they are enjoying themselves. It's very interesting when you see three women 68, 72, and 78 years of age behaving like the little girls they once were! They were a hoot! Giggling, laughing, tears running down their faces, and talks of the younger one taking care of the "old ladies". I drove away with a smile on my face, knowing they will have a great time this week!

Today, is the day of the Weekday Quiltathon. I didn't spend any time preparing for this day, but I have a couple of projects sitting on the table and I am going to start working on them in just a bit!

I am waiting to get the call from the dishwasher installer this morning...if you expect them early, they show up later, if you decide to sleep in, they call early and say they are 10 minutes away!!! I can't wait to dirty up some dishes and see how it works! JAS.......hey, he just called and will be here at 10:30 this morning!!! "Speak of the Devil!" He he he........


With the busy weekend, here is what my sewing table looks like. I just walked through the room throwing things that are semi quilty on the table top and now, I have to pay the piper!! I suppose I'll have to dig my way down to the bottom before I can get started sewing today! Well, at least dinner will be easy tonight! Baked potatoes.....and as soon as the installer leaves, I'm sewing!!!!

Happy Quilting!!!!!!!!!!

I love this post. You're so much fun the way you write about things. I smiled reading about three sisters. :)

I love Sunday naps too! It seems that is the only day of the week I feel the need for a nap. Wonder why? I hope the new dishwasher gives you more quilting time!

Hey, naps are good any day of the week in my opinion....love that your mom and sisters still have a great time when they get together. I get a smile on my face just imagining them the way you talked about them.

You'll wonder how you ever manged without a dishwasher. Mine broke after a week and I was distraught! Happy sewing!
