What I have been doing

I realize it has been a long time since I have written anything. Somehow the days just slipped by and I didn’t have much to say. I think I just got overwhelmed with some things & unfortunately, I tend to stop dead in my tracks until I get things sorted. Make sense? No? I didn’t think so, it doesn't to me either, but it is what it is.

I haven't been idle, however. I have made 5 baby quilts and a lap quilt. It is my first lap quilt and is 'not pretty' as far as seams, but it is mine, my first and I love it! It is being 'quilted' right now with a poinsettia pattern, as it is a Christmas quilt. I was able to go over to Nancy's, (the quilters) house and see her long arm quilting machine set up. It is very interesting. She had a beautiful quilt on the table when I was there and it was fabulous!

I also was able to reconnect with a friend from high school. We have had lunch a few times and it is very nice to catch up and reconnect. She was in a terrible car accident 5 years ago but has pretty much recovered completely.  

My daughter is doing well and the pregnancy is coming along nicely. She is 27 weeks now and looking so gorgeous. We are getting ready for her baby shower in November. Daughter dear has done real well on her weight so far. She is right on target with the doctors. My son in law is another matter, lol. I think he has gained all the baby weight. ;) He is still very lean and mean though so no biggie.

A good friend of mine’s daughter is having a little boy also and we are having her baby shower here at our house so we are gearing up for that as well. Both events will be lots of fun! 

I went on a trip to the Asheville, NC area this past week also. My sister is thinking of moving up to the area soon and we went up to look at properties and just chill out. The kids were out of school and we all had a blast together. We also made it down to Franklin NC and mined for gems and just rode the beautiful country back roads. I have some pictures, but not too many as we were pretty busy, just having fun.

I’ll close with a beautiful picture from the NC Mountains. Enjoy your day!

  1. Beautiful picture! I'm glad things have been well, and that your daughter is doing good, that's important. LOL about your son in law gaining all the baby weight, I think that happens a lot ;) Glad to hear about your friend, and great work with the quilts, I hope you'll share pictures when you are able. It's cold and rainy here today and our leaves are dropping quickly, winter is coming!
