Busy Week

Hi Everyone,

Wow, it has been a busy week for me.  My heart is going out to all the teachers and other school employees who must be really crazy busy.  I'm in a club whose year ends in May, so I'm trying to finish a bunch of stuff--we also have to submit paperwork for the club to continue to be  allowed to "meet" (For my military friends, it is the Spouses' Club) and I'm in charge of that.  I'm also in charge of getting nominations for next year's board and I couldn't find someone willing to be President and then at the last minute I had two contenders!  It has been just a little stressful.

I also have meetings for our guild's upcoming show--one on Tuesday and one this Saturday.  I had bee yesterday and it is the best way to be busy.  I'm off to a meeting this morning, too.  But I don't need to go on about that all.  Suffice to say that I'm not getting as much sew time as I like.  I am getting some minutes here and there at the machine to make 170 nine-patch blocks.  I will share more about them in another post.  That little bit of sewing is helping me keep my sanity!

I will leave you with this photo which turned up on Facebook and which I totally love!  I loved the movie Cinderella--especially the mice making her dress.

But the sentiment is perfect!  All of you and the rest of my quilting friends have made my life so much better!



  1. Have to love those little mice. I think we have all wished at one time, that the quilt fairy would come in the night and finish our projects. Keep going, summer and a more relaxing time will be here soon.

  2. Lori at Humble quilts blog is selling some of her quilts. There was a beauty that instantly made me think of you.

  3. ...friends who sew make the world a better place! Hopefully, we all will have more time to spend at the machine...

  4. Love your little Cinderella pic. It's so true!

    Springtime is such a busy time of year with graduations, weddings, communions, banquets etc. It's hard to carve out some sewing time, isn't it?
