Starting Over

I know its been a long time since I last blogged. I am going to try to do better now that my crazy life has calmed down a bit ~ well maybe it has!

My mom is doing great and is back home with my dad! Her stay at my house forever changed my relationship with her. We are now very close and talk every day.

We have downsized from a 6 bedroom/4 bath house to a 3 bedroom/2 bath house. Most of my quilting stuff is in the garage in plastic totes. There are 24 totes of my stash fabrics, 18 totes of UFO's, and 11 boxes of books. I did have all of the UFO's and books listed on a spreadsheet but then my laptop blew a motherboard and took the memory with it. Do you think I had it backed up on another source? Nooooooooooo.........

I've been quilting (or attempting to)......my oldest daughter is expecting my first grandchild in January. His name is going to be Ayden Jiovanni Chernes. I can't wait to meet him!!

I spent two weeks in NC in July/August taking care of Richard's mom who had knee replacement surgery. I was about 30 minutes away from Mary Jo's soooooo.........yes, I went on a side trip! For those of you who have never been to Mary Jo's, it is an experience! I even got to meet Mary Jo! She is a hoot!

I'm ready for some cooler weather here in Florida! The days of it being in the 90's are killing me! I feel like a vampire only going out at night.

I will leave you with a picture of the 2nd quilt that I've started for Ayden. The first one is on the sewing machine being sewn. I will show you that one after the stitching is done. I found this quilt in Fons and Porters Baby Quilts magazine. Stephi and JC fell in love with it so I made it for them.





Until next time! And I promise it won't be 7 months!!!
