Yes, it’s been rather quiet for, you know, two months, but I’ve been here, stitching and stitching amongst the chaos that has been my life. My kids have been a bit of a handful for the past two months, which has left zero time for blogging. There was a broken foot, then an infected toe that went unreported until it was very bad, a 2 a.m. mad rush to the emergency room for croup…and then all the fun of “end of the school year” happened, and now it’s all about summer art camp, a suspected case of appendicitis for one of my kids this morning (turned out to be a stomach virus from…yeah), and softball all the time. But that’s life with kids, right? It all just kind of caves in on you sometimes, and you just keep your head above the water the best you can.
But the crafting still happened behind the scenes, and I was able to post bits and pieces of it on Instagram, which has garnered a little bit of notice in recent days, much to my delight.
I’ve been working away on my Farm Girl Vintage quilt blocks:
And I’ve gotten a start on my Sleighbell Sampler Quilt from the Winter Wonderland book:
I’m also in the homestretch on the Star Spangled Diamonds Quilt, which hit its first year mark on Memorial Day. Softball season affords me a lot of “sitting around” time to work on it, and it’s growing steadily through each game.
Here’s hoping that the children have gotten all this daredevil craziness out of their systems so that I can resume with some regular posting, like, NOW. Happy summer!
