Let’s try this again

Where do I begin? In the middle of course! Y’all already know I’m far from organized! I made it a year in the Post-a-day challenge but couldn’t follow-up the second year.. I guess I get an E for effort?

So here we go…

I have completed a few quilts. Though for the life of me I can’t find the pictures. I finally finished the “Bubbles” Quilt.. I like how it turned out. I really need to do more thread painting to improve my skills though! This is my current project. It’s been slow going but I’m enjoying the process.

We’ve spent a lot of time at my Mom’s house playing and spending “family” time.

There’s been a lot of celebrating. Birthdays,  Mothers Day, Graduation of #3 and yes Enlistment into the Marines. (I’m counting down the days until he leaves with a heavy heart.)

We’ve had too many medical scares. Still more that have not been resolved but we also celebrated getting braces off after three long years!

DD and I went to see One Direction. (That’s a boy band for those of y’all without teenage girls in the house.) The Amphitheatre was filled with 20,000 screaming girls! I’m still trying to recoup from that! I’ve got a new grand puppy (yes, again!) Her Name is Sophia. She’s the first for #2 and his GF! I’ve got to get that quilt done in the next two weeks!

Last but of course not least. I finally got my first tattoo! I love it and am already planning my next!

Hoping I can get back to some semblance of routine but I’m not counting on it. Taking it one breath at a time!

I’m ready for Spring!

Winter is my worst time of the year and just when I think we’re nearing the end of it. Well it’s 34 here this morning. This is just ridiculous! I had the doors open yesterday. This morning my car was covered with ice!

I didn’t get back from taking Mom & Dad to breakfast till mid-afternoon yesterday. She had things she needed done while I was there. So maybe a Quilt Show today? I don’t see that happening though. Sundays well, they are Sundays. In fact it’s nearly noon and I haven’t had a moment to sit and write.

Today I have the big part of my quilt room organization. Get rid of this computer hutch. I have a super-duper computer on its way here to bring me into this century’s’ technology. It’s blam-o fast with tons of cache. So all I have to do is tear this one down and get the new desk out of the closet.

I love that phrase.. “all ya gotta do is___” . It sounds so easy, simple even. But rarely does it work out that way. So I will be computer-less until Tuesday sometime. I’ll be stuck on a lap-top or one of my kids computers. EWWW!

On the plus side I will be able to do two things at once without crashes losing tons of data. I will also be able to learn Electric Quilt which I haven’t even been able to load on this dinosaur. So there ya go…

That’s all I’ve got for today..
