Where is Paula???

Well, I'm still here, just haven't been blogging! I have been reading blogs, so I'm trying to keep up with all of you!

Mom and I started taking care of my niece (Mom's grandbaby!) this week. My sister is a teacher and had to go back to work and finish out her contract for the rest of the school year. Mom and I volunteered to take care of Hannah for my sister and it's been wonderful! We've enjoyed spending time with her...she's a doll baby.

The ONLY problem....and it's not REALLY a problem....is that this has cut into my sewing time. Sure, I miss it, but give me the choice between baby and quilting, I'll choose this sweet baby every time! The quilting will wait, and it will be there when I get back to it.

The baby's other grandmother, Cindy (she reads my blog too! Hi Cindy!), is keeping her on Fridays, so that frees me up to have our Quilting Days at the church. The first Friday of the month is UFO Day, and the third Friday of the month is our regular Quilt Bee. I'm about to leave here and head up to the church for our Quilt Bee. We'll be working on Mrs. Jones' String X quilt. Pattern from Bonnie! Fun, fun....even though it's raining cats and dogs!

I also wanted to let everyone know that I did get the Blog Give Away Prizes in the mail! They went out yesterday by Priority Mail....be on the look out for them ladies! Please let me know when you receive them.

I'll take some pictures of our Quilt Bee today to share. I hope you all had a great week and I'm looking forward to some machine time this weekend! I need to get started on Part 2 of Bonnie's Mystery, Orange Crush, put the binding on my Four Seasons Quilt, and quilt the last three placemats for my MIL! Plenty to do!! Just need some time....

Happy Quilting everyone!!!!

One of the particularly wonderful things about quilting is that quilts will wait while we tend to babies, dig in the garden, or work in the kitchen. Enjoy that sweet little one *s*

I'm so glad to know that you are still with us! Have fun with your little niece! =)
