    Y'all,

    I am in the middle of a huge, very visible project here at work that eats up most of my daytime hours. We are coming to a brief breathing point, but I am going to be crazy busy for the next 6 months.

    My free time has been absorbed with getting the flying geese panels done (they are), and put into the squares for Homeward Bound (I still have six more to put together). Once those are done, I have a couple hundred HSTs to finish sewing and trimming, then joining together for borders. In the mean time, I thought.. hmmm. a quilt for my daughter's 12th birthday would be nice. Something simple like Double Irish chain. Now if Patrice was on the west coast, she would have kicked me in the head and made sure I knew what an idiot I am. It is going along well, I have a drop dead date of 8-19. There is a vacation planned for the beginning of August though that will probably screw me up.

    In the mean time, the yard is starting to look somewhat like Jurassic Park, the dogs need baths, the bird cages need cleaning, the kids are raising all sorts of Cain, and I am getting 6 hours of sleep a night.

    I do visit the board occasionally, and try and input what little I know.

    I bet my grass is taller than yours! I think the MIL is going to cut it for hay! (ok, maybe not, but it's getting tall!)
    Busy, busy, busy me, too!
    good luck!

    Sounds like you have it under control :lol: If you could make do with less than 6 hrs, you could get a lot more done! Is the missing toe still giving you pain? I hate that she did that to you. She usually does not get that riled up :wink: :lol:

    We have no grass, at least none that's suppose to be there. Front yard, all garden; side yard all garden; back yard, half garden, the dogs destroyed what grass there ever was. Trees popping up everywhere.

    I think I am going to take a couple of half days and get the chain saw out. Those are my kinda days.

    Just think how long it would take you to sew them into a small good sized quilt. Your time must be worh something. I'll throw in a case of Coca Cola and a large spool of dark brown thread.

    Hey Tim, I have my right hand available and working well to help with the pulling of weeds and cutting of small trees. I even have my own bow saw and rolling stool to work out in the 'gardens'......just send the plane ticket and I'll give you a helping hand. I don't need first class, but I don't want to be in the very back of the plane either, k? You do have the hammock in back to rest in, right?

    You'll get at least another hour of HST work in if I take care of the weeds, right? No child care though, you'll have to find one of the other gals to handle the 'cain raising kids' I'm just not going to have time if I have to kill off the things you don't want to grow.

    I'll start packing now, k???
