Head in' Home

Time for me to head home tomorrow. Kind of torn, but am so glad I was able to come here and help with this tough transition. I look forward to being home, and am unsure of when I will be back,but  as soon as I can.

I was able to sw a little while I was is a Christmas wall hanging that I started......

And here are a few split nine-patch blocks made with my sisters scraps.

Am looking forward to putting together my Celtic Solstice blocks.

It Does Take AVillage

Yesterday I spent a few hours sewing with my sisters. I made these house blocks for a friend who is making a quilt for another fellow quilter friend of ours. The blocks went together fairly quickly and it was nice to sew and be with my sisters. Mom sat back and supervised . Remembering good times of past Friday sewing sessions with my sisters and mom. 

Today will be a difficult day as we transition mom to her new living situation.

Happy and Grateful

Stop my mind from its hungry whirl. I have been dealing with family things and my mind is going ......I have been reading many after the New Years blogs about what is your word for the year. I think I will take it week by week or even day by day, minute by minute ,the here and now at least for right now. 

And so what is it right now, I think I have two words for now....

Happy and Grateful

Ringing in a New Year


I am spending this week with my mom and sisters. Not so happy times here . Transitions into something I am struggling with. 

Celtic Solstice reveal......I know I will love my final quilt. For now I will finish my Step 5 blocks that I brought along, as I left all my other steps at home. Hey it will be my resolution for the new year to get it finished.......

For now I will spend some time with my family as we make a very tough change.
