It's been a very busy day here. First of all I woke up at 5:30......that's not the norm for me. I'm an 8:00 girl, sometimes later. But occasionally, lately, I've been waking up and if my mind starts, it's all over. I have had my "stars and flowers" quilt design on my mind. I am in the process of turning it into a wool applique and punch needle patterns and it's daunting, but exciting at the same time. I just love it. Tonight....... if I'm not asleep in my chair......... I plan to start cutting out the wool appliques.
Also at 5:30 this morning I started to plan my son's next few months (in my head anyway) as he is about to graduate from college. Will he get a job? How will we help him move when are up in NY for only a week? Where will he move? I wonder if he'll make enough to cover his expenses? Is it any wonder I wasn't able to sleep? By the way, if anyone knows of a job opening in the music industry for a very mature, wonderful young man let me know. He has a minor in Event planning as well. God, he'd kill me!! Seriously though, he is a real very hard worker. This past weekend he ran the Relay for Life at his college and they raised $50,000. This week he has the zombie run, another fundraiser for brain cancer and then he tells me he can concentrate on graduation!! Oh my, I sound like a boastful mother!!
Anyway, enjoy the next few photos....I'll keep you updated on that wool applique quilt...
|Nancy is almost done hooking her quilt rug, she only has four more squares left but says she is burned out and needs a break!!! I can see why but I'd have to finish it...|
