A personal blog about quilting, sewing and life as a mother. Lots of free tutorials including beginning quilting tutorials, binding tutorials, and other sewing projects like bags, quilt blocks and nursing covers.
First of all, many, MANY thanks for the generous and thoughtful comments. It’s so nice to know that people have “been there” and understand. And they don’t think you’re a total flake. And more importantly, many thanks for your prayers for Sarah. They are much appreciated.
Second: I made it out of town this past weekend. My husband had a conference in San Diego and the plan has been for me to go with him for a couple of days, but things were touch and go because of sick kids. My children have a gift for only getting ear infections right before my husband and I have a trip planned – which is really rare. But at the last minute (almost literally) the boy perked up and my brave parents were willing to take over.
I didn’t realize how desperate things were until I slept 10 hours straight the first night. lol. A trip to the beach with a book (my high school copy of P&P), a lot of fish tacos, and some time with my husband were just what we needed.
