I’m working on some of my Dear Jane blocks today. The day started and I was in some kind of funk, but I’m slowly working my way out of it. I came down to my sewing room this morning and just could not for the life of me decide what to work on, so I started cleaning a bit. One of my cutting counters was just piled high with “stuff” so I attacked that area with a vengeance. Still couldn’t decide what to do with my day, even though Quilt Market is looming in the back of my mind, so I started ironing scraps of fabric.
I’ve moved onto making this block next:
It’s going together pretty easily so far.
I think part of the reason I’m in such a funk today is because I did not sleep much last night between a child coming down with a cold, another with “growing pains” in his leg and not sleeping well and because of this:
Someone hit my husband last night while he was driving to work on a major highway at top speed. We were both pretty upset, but thankful no one was hurt and again thankful that both parties involved are insured. The other driver was found to be at fault and the damages will be taken care of. Still, its disappointing to no that we will be without my husbands work truck for awhile as it goes in for repairs – rental car here we come. I guess it’s disappointing too because we both work so hard for the things we’ve got and proud that both our vehicles are paid for and now one is damaged and the other driver involved just seemed to want to throw the blame around and not be responsible. It always seems like when a vehicle goes in for cosmetic damages – they never come out the same. Oh well, it can be fixed and life will move on! Thankfully, it’s not totaled and everyone walked away.
I let the stress of the situation get the best of me last night and now I’m paying the price – no sleep, upset stomach, headache – the works! I’m telling you, stress is a nasty thing and I need to learn to not let it happen.
I think I feel a nap calling my name very soon today!
Yesterday, I was also able to finish piecing the baby quilt and now it needs to be quilted. I’ll just do some simple quilting on this one and get it wrapped up for the baby shower! I’ve got the backing fabric pieced and the batting is tumbling in the dryer for a bit, working those wrinkles out. That’s one thing I don’t care for when I buy a packaged batting – but it’s what I had on hand, so I’m using it!
Here’s the baby quilt so far:
I hope you have a wonderful day today!
