I've made a promise to myself!

Wow it has been almost six months since I have made a post to this blog. I have been here a few times trying out new backgrounds etc, but have not felt like writing. So today I have made a promise to myself to do my best to write once a week.

What have I been doing for 6 months? Hmmmmmmm!!!!! Well until about a month or so ago, well maybe two months I have been doing very little. The heat and humidity was just too high to feel like moving. I should have been creating, but that wasn't happening either. Basically I just transported Dad to and from town so he could be with Mom in the nursing home, did the laundry and cooked a little.

Bill and I did make a trip to WI in early fall. We went up at two different times, so I was not away from home as long as Bill. Then late in October we went to Branson, MO and Fort Smith, Arkansas. We were not gone long, but it was a relaxing trip. We stayed in a fishing cottage right at the lakeside. We didn't fish, but it was nice to know others were catching fish. I did a lot of sewing and enjoyed not having to leave the cottage. Bill went shopping and I stayed I know that doesn't sound right, but Bill had some things he wanted to buy. The place he went to had many little booths and they seemed to add new items daily. I did go shopping one morning. I was looking for something special at a quilt shop. It took two trips to the same shop, but I found what I was looking for on the second trip.

While at home this fall I have designed a few quilts and pieced a few for Quilting Treasures. I have also tested some small items for various designers and magazines. I have a baby quilt to make for a friend. Her due date was in February, but now the Dr said she will deliver anytime after the first of the year. I have the design, and the fabric is washed. My favorite iron died so I bought a new one. Still have not ironed the fabric. I still need to finish another quilt and a pattern, then I will do the baby quilt.

Must go now...pick up Dad and head towards home. Leftovers for dinner, so maybe I can get some sewing done.

Until next week,
