One of the many need "To Do's" on my list this weekend was to get the scrap/sewing room back in order
Ahh, all better. The cutting counter still has a lot on it however those are the next up on my "To Do" list.
Both baby boy quilts and Halloween runner's are complete and ready to move to the gift closet. Double Ahhh
Free motion quilting has been started on the baby girl "Flag" quilt. Not sure if I feel like working on it tonight. If not it will be first tackled come Monday morning
Even got in some R&R time on the deck over the weekend to enjoy the outdoors before the mosquito's show up.
It's been a funny day today as we didn't have Sunday dinner. It is amazing how quite it is when the gang is not around each Sunday, also amazing that I didn't start dinner at 7:00 AM today!! Ha
DD#1 and her family are in PA visiting the In-Laws
DD#2 chaperoned the Senior Prom last night, really late night
DD#3 Celebrated her 30th Birthday last night with friends, she too was in need of some extra sleep today.
Hubby is still in AZ
AJ the beagle and I haven't figured out what we will be having for dinner tonight, maybe breakfast for supper or something else nice and easy to cook and clean up.
The lady I made the last Tee shirt quilt for gave it to her DD and to be Son-in-law at their bridal shower yesterday. They LOVED it!! Yaaaa, that's the good news. The maybe bad news is there were a ton of people wanting my info so they could commission a Tee shirt quilt of their own. Maybe if I do enough of them I won't hate doing them as bad as I do now! Ha The extra money would look very nice in the EF...sew I'm game.
Another friend is getting ready to open a booth in a unique gift shop. She wants some of my handmade items to attract a larger crowd. Now that project I find more appealing in that I can make things I do enjoy making. If they sell great, if they don't it's OK by me as I like a nice stock of gifts in the gift closet. She is looking for a fall open date which gives me lots of time to decide what to make and to get r done.
While all of these are great opportunities I refuse to let ANYTHING get in the way of our family/lifestyle plan. Everyone who really knows me knows I mean what I say. My priority's are and have always been to get this Wife, Mommy, Nanny thing right, well as close as I can get to it anyway. I learned after our youngest left for college and I went back to the "Cooperate World" I can never be one of those who see their career as fulfilling. I'm not bashing anyone who chooses that for themselves, it's just not my cup of tea.
It's hard to find balance in your life. Amazing how hard it is to work at keeping that balance. I know by now that my heart is in our home. Really I might not like all the yucky jobs that are on the "To Do" list at times but I can think of nothing better than HOME.
