Rough Morning

This morning was a rough one.  After two weeks of no school (at least for my daughter), it was difficult to get up and going, but get up and go we did.  I ignored my daughter's complaints of her stomach hurting.  I sure hope I don't get a call from school;-)

We had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend with a house full of people (18!!!) including my mom and her husband who drove all the way from Mississippi!  Unfortunately, we were missing my oldest.  He lives in a small town a few hours from Seattle, and the icy roads from that freaky "blizzard" prevented him from getting to the airport.  At least he had a safe Thanksgiving and celebrated the holiday with friends.

You probably know by now that I am a procrastinator.  I planned to finish quilting the LOVE quilt over the Thanksgiving break so my son could take it with him (girlfriend's Christmas gift).  Since he didn't come home, this is as far as I got with the quilt ;-)  However, I plan to finish it today!

I stay away from the malls the day after Thanksgiving...luckily for me, The Sewing Studio is not near a mall...ha ha!!!!!

It's a Hoot

My Mom and I took advantage of their Black Friday sale...30% off everything!

Soft corduroys and fun fat quarters

I went without a list since I really didn't need anything, but once I got there, I realized there was quite a bit I "needed";-)

My order of solids was waiting for me when I returned home.  Guess I need to stop procrastinating and get to work on my son's quilt!

Have an amazing day!!!!!


  1. I can't tell you how much I LOVE the Love quilt! The colors are exactly what I would want in a quilt! I'm also jealous of your new solids and It's a Hoot!

  2. sorry that Alex did not make it in...heard the weather reports and wondered about him. Glad you had a nice holiday - and got a little fabric shopping in!

  3. haha just saw that my comment posted from Zoe - guess who was on my computer again!

  4. Whew! You hit the jackpot with new fabrics. They are all gorgeous. I particularly love the little mushrooms! I hope you get some quilting time. It's hard when you still have so much to do with kids.
