There has been a lot going on around here. I haven’t had much time for sewing last week, so last night I sat down and put together this Bee block for Kim. It felt good to sew! This block is a free tutorial called Scrappy Crossroads by Lori Holt. It was a fun, and pretty fast one to sew. I think I need to make myself some of these. (How often do I say that?)
The past few weeks have been kind of crazy! Mostly fun crazy, but still crazy. I attended and taught at the SNAP social media conference which was great and where I always learn a ton. I meet some really talented people.
On top of a conference we also celebrated a birthday last weekend, my oldest daughter went to her first prom (it was so sweet! I kept feeling like the strains of “Sunrise, sunset…’ from Fiddler on the Roof were playing in my head), and I had a bunch of needs/demands with my church responsibilities. By Thursday morning I was emotionally and physically buuuurned ouuuuut.
So I let myself take the day off to veg. I stayed in my pajamas until 1:00. (Of course it was the day when two friends dropped something off and wanted to see our painted kitchen and there I was in my pajamas and hadn’t cleaned the kitchen for two days!) I tried to catch up on some computer/email stuff in the morning and then I took some time to clean up my messy sewing space, sorting fabric and watching Call the Midwife. It was very therapeutic. (Plus, when I watch that show, I feel a lot less sorry for myself!)
Yesterday was even better. I went to the annual Women’s Conference at BYU which is always SO inspiring and motivating. I also ran into good friends, visited Sarah Jane who was there selling her art prints, and ate the world famous mint brownies. Talk about good therapy.
Back to a busy weekend here with soccer and lacrosse games, etc. but I did just get my neutrals quilt back from the quilter and am looking forward to some more down time while I get to sit and bind it. I hope you get some therapeutic down time this weekend too.
