Adios

A quick last post before we head to NYC for the weekend.  I’m frantically trying to get the house in order so life will be easier for my SIL (who I’ve invited to guest-blog while she’s here… we’ll see if she can still string together words after taking care of two 11-month-olds).  I’m not too nervous, and I know she’ll take awesome care of my kids and they will be in great hands.  I’m really getting excited, honestly.  A long train ride, staying in a hotel, lunch and dinner with friends, seeing a show… should be great!  I even bought a book!  That’s not about kids!  I’ll also bring my knitting, and will probably work on Daniel’s hat.

Did I not mention I’ve been on a mini crafting bender the last few days?  Ooh, once I get started…  I got really into those French knots, and embroidered the quilt tops that I need to put together with backing and batting and all of that.  My brother and sister-in-law’s wedding quilt (yeah, I missed that whole “1 year” mark…) got the date of their wedding, and the kids’ quilts each got their initials and date of birth.  It was really fun.

I also picked up some fat quarters while at the craft store (look out, I’m addicted again!) in some fun food-themed prints, and will (someday) make an apron out of it.  Just as soon as I get my sewing machine set up.  And finish the three quilts I have in progress… someday.

Alright, away I go!  Have a great weekend everyone!

    If you can make it there, you’ll make it, ANYWHERE! Have a great time!
    (Love your quilts!)

  3. Have fun on your trip! A book – how exciting! Oh, and I really love the way those dates look. I’m jealous, as I am totally not that talented.

  5. OK, I’m squinting here – did you make those dates entirely from french knots? That would take me forever. Very impressive.
