Top 10 Reasons Why I Have Not Posted in over a Month

It has been over 30 days since I last posted to my blog which is just TERRIBLE. But here are the Top 10 reasons why I have been MIA!!

#10 - It took me a week to get all the laundry and unpacking done from our vacation.

#9 - My son came home for a weekend and I had MORE LAUNDRY to do in addition to catching up with him.

#8 - I went to see THE BOSS! Who was fabulous!!

#7 - I made my "Taste of the Orient" postcards. These were mailed out a couple of weeks ago~

This is one of the cards. I made 7 cards with different backgrounds and kimonos.

#6 - My back pain has been acting up so I am back at physical therapy 2 days a week hoping that it will help!

#5- I finished my PIG (Project in Grocery Sacks) for our annual Pig Roast. I started this many years ago when I took an applique class and decided I didn't like doing hand applique sewww it got shoved in a grocery sack and has been aging in my closet. I decided to finish it on the machine and I am really happy with the result.

#4 - Work is insane! We had to fire a gal who was with us for two years. So I have been weeding through piles of resumes and interviewing. We hired a gal who only stayed two weeks. Hired another gal last week and she started this week so I am training her and we are hiring another gal so I am interviewing AGAIN! Good news is that I will be going part-time, 3 days a week, after the first of the year!

#3 - My nephew and his new bride, the couple whose luggage was "misplaced" on their honeymoon to Italy are EXPECTING IN JUNE!! I am going to be a Great Aunt for the 2nd Time! So I have been perusing books to make a baby quilt! #2 - I still have to feed my Hubby and my kitties which involves food shopping and cooking!

#1 - I have been totally tied up with BASEBALL! As some of you may know, I was born and bred in Massachusetts and have been a die hard Red Sox fan for my entire life. It's a gene which was passed down from my dad to me. My DH is also a Red Sox fan so we have been watching every game all season. It was touch and go with Cleveland but once we got to the World Series we swept the Rockies!! Being an official armchair coach, I have not had much time to blog!!

And that's why I haven't posted in sewww long! Whewww!! But I have caught up on all of your comings and goings and quiltiness and have been leaving comments here and there. I am now working on the last round of the Round Robin (note to self- no more Round Robins- UGH~), getting caught up on my Journal quilts ( I'm 4 months behind!), getting my last postcards out the door, and starting my final challenge quilt which is due in December! Hopefully it won't be another 30 days before I post again!! I haven't forgot about my "Pay it forward" gals and have something special for you in the works as well. I won't be getting out by the end of October ( my original plan) but hope to have it in the mail right after Turkey Day!!

Thanks for the emails from many of you wondering about my whereabouts~ It's nice to know that there are gals out in blogland looking out for me!!

Latest finish and a preview
