Yesterday I went to "Sewing Saturday" hosted by the Salt Lake Modern Quilt Guild. I don't make it to their monthly Thursday night meetings because the distance and week-night status are tricky with my family schedule, but this is my second time getting to a bi-montly Sewing Saturday, and I always thoroughly enjoy it.
(POST EDIT: A few people have asked about the pattern above. I'm using my Double Crossed pattern. I love how the change of colors change the look of the whole quilt. The fabrics are from Moda's Dream On collection from a couple of years back. Part of using my stash!)
survived enjoyed 6 weeks of summer. I will say that I'm somewhat pooped, but probably less so than other years. Summer and I have a complicated relationship. There is so much to love about summer - food, friends, warm breezy nights, beautiful weather, fresh air (when there are no fires burning), relaxed schedule. At the same time with 4 kids at home, plus assorted friends and neighbor kids, depending on the day, I start to feel like Julie from the Love Boat. It can also be exhausting and overwhelming keeping up with the constant call for food, popsicles, entertainment, and trying to keep the house from evolving into total chaos. It's a balancing act trying to schedule enough lessons or activities to provide some structure, but still leave time for the flexibility to be lazy too.
Thanks so much for the Purple-y quilt love! Another casualty of summer is my computer time, so my personal responses are suffering. I'm so grateful for all of your comments and sorry not to respond more individually. Thanks for your understanding. You're all the best.
