    I cleaned house after the grandson left. Including washing all the floors. A good job done, now can relax a little. I ignore housework when one of the grandchildren are visiting. He was here for 2 weeks, the first being school vacation; and the 2nd because his parents couldn't work it out to get him back to VT. and his school only had 3 days last week, so mom wasn't worried about what he missed.

    I took a clothes line basket class on Saturday - what fun they are to make! And yesterday I didn't do too much, just made two more Day and Night blocks, but otherwise recovered from a fast paced Friday night into Saturday basket workshop.

    Saturday I made a soccer ball cake for my 17 year-old DGSs birthday; cleaned up the kitchen which seemed to take HOURS. Sunday I worked on the pinwheel project quilt, and a friend came over with clothes for me to alter for her.

    I worked from home all day Saturday. By Sat evening I needed a break so told DH I needed some "me" time and disappeared into my sewing room. Reappeared a few hours later with an almost finished doll quilt for my Feb swap partner. Sat & hand sewed the binding while watching TV. Sunday DH & I went to breakfast, did some shopping & then spent the rest of the day being lazy and watching Netflix movies together.

    I made 396 HST, unfinished to 4". Then, I started to sew them together into 99 pinwheel blocks. 11 colors used in total. I completed all the HST, ironed,cut apart, ironed open, trimmed to 4". Still have some to go, about 108, I think. then, I switched projects and chose fabric for an alphabet baby quilt. I am foundation piecing the letters, got 6 done. Also, cooked dinner for several nights this week, played with the dogs, and slept.

    I took a sewing machine demo class on Sat, then drove the kid back to college (2 hrs each way). Sunday was the day I was going to FINALLY make those curtains, but I lost all of my drawings and measurements and didn't have the energy to do them again. Instead, I installed my old software for my Viking 1+ and played with the embroidery.

    Friday evening we drove to O'Hare Airport and picked up our visitor from Australia. Late night I finished a quilt for my soon to be DIL. Saturday morning I picked my DD and DGS up at the train station. That evening we went to the wedding shower and gave the quilt (and other gifts) to my new DIL. Sunday we had a big breakfast (I cooked) and in the afternoon I actually got to play my Quiltopoly game with this group!!! Today, took my DD and our Australian visitor to Chicago for the conference they are attending.......whew! Best part...I get to keep my grandson all week!

    I took a quilt as you go workshop and am using a whole pile of orphan blocks that have been sitting in a bin just waiting for something like this. I also did a little shopping at my LQ"S 40% off sale buying some tone on tone black and red that I need for my Oriental quilt. I then bound and labeled a baby quilt for a new little guy and also made him some bibs. After church I had to drive DD back to college and help (actually do) DH pack for his convention in Ottawa this week. I think it was a busy week-end.

    I was finally able to concentrate long enough to sew. I finished setting together a quilt for my 6 year old granddaughter (photos later!), and made a few crumb blocks. I've had difficulty concentrating,sleeping, and just plain living. My mother passed away just one week ago, and I've had a hard time shifting gears back to "normal life". She lived with us (age 88), and had a stroke that required me to sit with her 24-7 for her last week. It was a beautiful peaceful death, and I' know she's in a wonderful place. But gosh, I'm lost.

    Be thankful you had time with her and she had a peaceful ending so take your comfort in that. You will slowly find your balance and continue on. Thoughts and prayers to you at this difficult time. Use your sewing as threrapy and maybe make something in rememberance of her.

    Friday, I made a windbreaker jacket out of nylon fabric and a hoodie sweatshirt. However, I miscalculated the 2XL !!!!!! and since 2XL!!!!! is always big on me, I didn't try it on. Murphy's Law bit me in the butt, as the shirt was mislabeled and couldn't have been bigger than a L if that. SO, it didn't fit me by a long shot. But I figured it would fit my mom.
    Saturday, I stayed in my pj's and did sweet dik all.
    Sunday I went to my parents' house to help Mom celebrate her 75 th birthday, and their 55 th wedding anniversary. The sibs got together and got them a new (big) flat screen tv. I also gave Mom the jacket. It fits her like it was made for her. And she loved it.
    Today, Mom called to say she wore the jacket everywhere today, and all her friends loved it too.
    Today I went to my quilt club and we did a "cancer sew" day and made 200 pads for patients.(don't ask)
    Tonight, I finished off a quilt for a friend and called her to say it was ready. *She only asked last weekend.
    After she picked her jaw up off the floor, I explained that I had this one languishing in the closet and she "saved" it from infinite UFO'dom.
    And I cooked dinner.
    Not bad eh?

    I took out a UFO that I started 5-6yrs ago. It is a bargello jacket. I had all the pieces sewn together and just had to cut my strips and make the bargello pieces for the jacket pieces. It has turned out to be quite the endeavor. But with perservence, I now have both sleeves and the 2 front pieces done and only have the back left to do. That is today's project.
