Back in the Studio
I went back into my sewing room today. I am working on a top for the 40 Quilts of Service. This one is for a wounded female soldier via the Quilts of Valor project. It is a kit from many years ago of a blue and white Trip Around the World. I already have 2 of the 6 strip sets put together. I have spent today ironing everything, since it has been in a bag for over two years. I am looking forward to getting it all together.
My houses and Nursing Mom are up on my design wall begging to be worked on. When I get this top together, I'll get back to them. Looking at the houses, I really don't think they need a lot more. Maybe some stars in the night sky or some trees or maybe a surfboard.
And don't let anyone fool you... Life with four kids is very busy. We have soccer Monday-Wednesday, an orchestra concert Thursday, a birthday party for both older boys to attend on Friday, soccer games Saturday morning and afternoon, and a soccer game to attend Saturday evening. Next Monday starts art classes for Ed, to add on to that above schedule. I am still hanging on to the whole family eating dinner together, but it is getting harder and harder. That was so important to my parents when we were growing up, and it is important to us now.
