I've missed far too many days of blogging roll call. I don't know how other crafters/bloggers who work full-time manage their time but I've obviously missed that lesson plan! Part of the issue is my feet and ankles. Since I started my new job doing both more walking and more static sitting, my feet and ankles have been very swollen and painful. I'm supposed to elevate them (which isn't possible at work) and have begun wearing compression socks, but the recovery is dragging. That means I avoid my computer and my sewing machine in the evenings, for the most part, and I miss both! Some stitching time on the bus is still happening, though.
Quiltz. She found lots of wonderful Asian prints to inspire a return to quilting. I'll do a simple envelope style for the pillow form I already purchased.
Kansas Troubles Quilts, with her lovely quilt project called Friendship Garden (with Pam Buda--who did a wool version). Lynne is very generous with frequent giveaways on her blog and has recently opened a brick and mortar shop in Bennington, Kansas called KT Quilt Shop. Sales and service of Berninas, an emporium, and also retreat space. Sounds wonderful! Someday I'll go on a retreat, I hope.
Tomorrow we're hosting our annual Mother's Day brunch, which got bumped back a week due to Erica's graduation. Right, now I'm off to conquer a long list of to-do's, which includes sewing time this weekend for sure--I'm having withdrawals!
