I Miss my life and sewing and quilting

A totally chaotic July has led to a somewhat rocky start to August, but I think I see the light.

I have had so very little time to sew or do anything I normally do.  I did sit down and put a label on this quilt.  It was done months ago, but sat there waiting for it’s label so I could put it in the cedar chest.  I am silly.  Yes, I make quilts for my grandchildren…..that I don’tWaterMark_2018-08-01-20-12-33 have and better not for some time.  But since I was an “Old” mom, I worry that I won’t meet my grandchildren.  Just in case, I make them quilts.  That way they know that their grandmother loved them whether I am here or not.   If my daughter waits as long as I did, I will have to be here at 80.  LOL.

A couple of weeks ago I had a bit of free time and decided to make a pin cushion.  It did not come out too bad.  I decided to send it to Nanette.  She is always so kind to me.  I think I will make one for myself at some point.  I like large pin cushions.

School will be starting here soon.  Last weekend we took the kids to Kings Island.  It was fun.  I had not dared go to an amusement park in years, however, I did pretty good.  Tried to stay off the crazy rides. The following day was school shopping.  I did suffer a bit at the early start of the week, but I expected it after a day at an amusement park, but I did it.

This weekend does not seem to have any scheduled activities, so I am hoping to get a few things accomplished.  My house is a bit disastrous and I need to spend some time in my room to get my mind right.

Sister Update:  Still not good.  Back in the ICU.  It scares me. When I do have time to do something, I lay on the couch and stare at the ceiling.  Kellie just turned 48, this past Monday.  She is my best friend. My keeper of secrets, my travel buddy on many occasions and my little sister.  I still don’t understand how this can be happening.  Life sucks. I need a Harry Potter Wand.

I am sincerely sorry for not posting for the Hand Quilt Along.  I will get back to myself, at some point.  These lovely ladies, have made great progress though:

  1. Such a worrying time for you, a sister is someone so special and your relationship sounds like what every sister would love. Making quilts for your future grandchildren – I just salute that idea. Awesome.

  2. Hi Lori! {{Hugs}} a bunch for you, and many prayers to go around. I will step up my prayers for Kellie – I thought she was out of the woods. Just what you don’t need is more stress. Life, sewing, quilting will return to normal at some point but don’t stress about that now too. Your pin cushion is so sweet, but not as sweet as the quilts for your grandchildren-to-be. Love that! ~smile~ Roseanne

  3. Your not silly – I have a tote filling up with crochet baby blankets for those to come when I am not here. Right now just concentrate on healing thoughts and love for your sister during this critical time. Sharon

  4. Awe I am so very sorry that your sister is not doing well. I hope she improves very soon. How wonderful that your future grandchildren will have a quilt made by their grandmother. Reading the label as well as your story brought tears to my eyes and a lump in my throat. I hope your dream comes true! 😊❤️

  5. Hugs for you and your sister, Laurie. I think making things for your future grandchildren is fantastic. My grandmother did that for the future children of her grandchildren (after having crocheted afghans for all her children and grandchildren), and for those who received them after she was gone, it was such a wonderful way to connect to her.
