Slowdown in Production


Look at this. This is the extent of quilt production at Quilt til You Wilt! It' s sad, really sad. Last Sunday afternoon I had a couple of free hours and this is what I did. Now,although I have two projects that needed to be finished yesterday,I did this instead. Why?? Well, I walked into my bathroom and saw the tissue box with the snowman on it and down the crazy path I skipped.
And to boot, it was not a very enjoyable project because the directions were not very clear. But I persevered and now have a tissue box cover. Ta da!

I am in a funk, not only quiltwise,but lifewise. Maybe I should rename this blog Wilt til you Quilt. I just can't seem to get out of first gear. There is a lot of bucking and starts and stops going on. My 3 day work week is back to 5 which has really wreaked havoc with family life and keeping the household running smoothly. We are again searching for a paralegal that can stay more than 3 weeks. You would think in this economy they would be breaking down the door!!

One bright spot is that my son has been home for a visit from Colorado. It didn't take him more than 2-3 days to turn our guest room back into his room (for those of you with sons, you know of what I speak, LOL). He is a little beat up from a season of snow, living with three guys in a two bedroom apartment and lousy eating habits. Our first trip together was to the doctor. He had an earache and has an ear infection. But a few days of loads of sleep and Mom's cooking has him on the road to recovery. He heads back to Colorado on Tuesday. I miss him already. He is headed to Vermont to visit friends this weekend.
Tomorrow it is supposed to rain. I can't remember the last time I was happy about rain on the
weekend. I hope to be holed up in my sewing room finishing my Round Robin and putting the label and binding on my QOV to be shipped out next week.
The other bright spot is all of you out there doing stuff. I have been squeezing in some blog reading while I eat lunch at my desk every day and that has helped. Ok, enuf of the whining!!!

I think I will end with gratitudes:

I have a job, I know lots of people don't right now.

I have a loving family,

I have food on the table and a roof over my head.

and I have my quilting friends, here in CT and out on the innernets.

Check back with me next week, I promise to be better company.
