First off -- thank you for all the lovely Birthday and Mother's Day wishes! Jay didn't get any time off really, but Steiger was in a good mood all Mother's Day, and would tell me "Happy Mother's Day" as if, on cue, any time I started to feel too sorry for myself.
I'm trying... desperately, to get Jay's Urban Lattice Quilt done. I've got 6 days before the Quilt Blogger's Festival is over, and I wanted to have it done by then. :(
But these long lines are killing me (though they look awesome).
If I get a spare minute (which seems rare), I'm usually outside with Steiger, or cleaning, or cooking, or reading (just started on Harry Potter #7 again)...
In all fairness, Steiger was trying to help me out on my birthday, by vacuuming for me.
But really, I'm doing well, just tired. Jay's alarm goes off at 5 to 5:30 every morning, and I can't fall back to sleep on the days I'm working (or am rudely awakened by crop-dusters buzzing my rooftop). To give some perspective, the hubs worked 96 hours last week... and it was his fourth in a row of weeks like that.
OK -- Enough complaining... maybe... ;)
Yesterday, Steiger and I had doctor appointments. All was well for both of us (well, all three of us actually), but Mommy made the mistake of trying to go to her local quilt shop's retiring sale with a baby who had just had 2 shots. He usually does pretty well while I'm at the fabric store... not yesterday.
I managed to sneak these out the door before he completely melted down.
and some assorted pretties.
Here's to getting that quilt done! (Though I have been taking today to work in the garden... with my hubs who took the day off. While I was typing this, I had to go wake him up off the floor of my son's room, because he fell asleep too while he was putting Steiger down for his nap... I guess I'm not the only tired one here). ;)
