I was nudged today, and questioned about my lack of blogging. oh dear. I knew it had been a while. I hadn't realized it had been more than a week. Let's see...
On the 5th, it looks like it rained and I shipped my quilts to Pacific International.
On the 6th, I cut out a quilt for a wedding on the 22nd. The groom is a peach farmer. I bought the fabric 6 months ago, when I first heard about the wedding.
On the 7th, I worked on a quilt for hire. At least I think I did. Oh! And my 2010 Hoffman Challenge came home. Good to see you, baby!
On the 8th, I drove to and from LA, to help my sister move her couch. And other things. :)
On the 9th, we had our usual Sunday, with church in the morning and our College/Career Fellowship in the evening. I served "make your own sandwiches" to 13 people. More or less. I forget. Oh. Have you been by Costco lately? They've added Salted Caramel Bark to their list of killer sweet treats.
On the 10th, I lost my mind and submitted a second quilt for consideration to Road to CA. I had to take pictures. It took hours. It's my 2010 Hoffman Challenge. I LOVE this quilt!!
On the 11th, I finished the quilt-for-hire, and took the van to the shop for new brakes. It turned out there was more wrong than just brakes, which meant that I was actually at the dealer on Monday (oil change), Tuesday (new brakes, but oops you need something else too) and Wednesday (got the something else and picked up the van.) Oh, and I dropped off a quilt at the Convention Center, for a month long exhibit.
On the 12th, I started sewing on the quilt that needs to be finished for the wedding on the 22nd. It is actually going very quickly, but then I had to meet a workman at the walnuts, and was there for 4 hours. oops. Lost the afternoon.
Today is the 13th, and it was guild day. The 2011 challenges were unveiled, and they were WONDERFUL. I wish I could say that I'd made one, but I didn't. no time. That's my excuse.
In between all of this, I've run hither and yon doing this, that, and the other thing.
Tomorrow I deliver the 3 quilts-for-hire that I finished this month, and pick up another. wow.
In between all that, there has been the usual day-to-day, the trying to get the house down (still talking with the contractor), trying to focus on the quilt show - have you seen the updated website? - missing my kids, planning for Houston, trying to fit in PIQF, et cetera et cetera et cetera.
And with all that I've been doing, my camera has either stayed in my purse or in my car or on my desk. It hasn't been within reach when I've needed it. I'll try to get back on track, but with everything coming up in the next few months? Well, I can only face it one day at a time.
Yep. Stay tuned. It's gonna be busy!
