Playing Hooky

Tonight is my "scrap club" meeting at the LQS and I'm at home.  My friend who attended last month's session (which I missed due to my oral surgery) showed me the project for this month and I wasn't thrilled with it.  It's raining, I worked late and Miami is playing the University of Virginia tonight.  All good reasons to stay in and either work on Grace Mason or the binding of one of the seven quilts I got back from the longarmer at the beginning of October.  Maybe both.

I've been absent from blogland for a couple of reasons.  I've been working late a few days a week and our weekends have been taken up with my son's cross country meets.   I love being able to attend his meets, but since they are often held at places two or more hours away I'm not getting much done around the house.  And I'm getting even less quilting and stitching done.  My son's a college senior so our 8-year stint with cross country comes to an end on Saturday when he runs his last race.  So for now, all I have to show is one of the blocks from the 2010 Thimbleberries BOM.  I'm slowly catching up with these although I won't meet my goal of completing the entire quilt this year.  I'm definitely OK with that, but I am looking forward to life slowing down a bit in the next few weeks.


  1. I think you made a wise decision to play hooky tonight. :D As for your DS's cross country meets, isn't it always the case that It's enjoyable to go to these events of one's offspring and yet one looks forward to more time when they're over? lol! It will be a milestone when he runs his last race. Enjoy!

  2. Sometimes, one just has to play hooky! Good luck to your son this weekend - and here's to slowing down!

  3. It must be bittersweet to see your son's last race--fun that it's over but sad, too. I hope he did well! :)

    Love the quilt block!

  4. Hope life quietens down soon, playing hooky sounds good.

  5. I hope your quiet life will come back soon. I wish all the best for your son.
