Life Gets in the Way!!

I'm not getting very much sewing done. My bff Claudia thinks that is all I do all day long but it's really not. Yesterday, for example, the only sewing I got done was some hand quilting on a wall hanging during a couple of hours of TV. Gotta watch my Dancing With the Stars!! Here's a picture of "my sweet spot". It's where I spend my evenings hand quilting, crocheting, cross-stitching, whatever I'm in the mood for as long as it involves a needle. You can see the quilt on the ottoman and the crochet in the basket on the right. My Ott Light is indispensable. I do need a better table for my notions there on the left.

Instead of spending time at my sewing machine yesterday, I got to buy groceries. We seem to think we need to eat everyday. Go figure! After that daunting task I have to come home and put them all away. Don't you think that's even worse? I certainly do!! Then, I get the call that track shoes have been forgotten and are needed NOW at the high school. Off my little van goes again. Then it's time for supper. (Again, all this eating!!!) After clean up, it's TV time. Oh well, life just gets in the way sometimes and that's ok. Dare I even say it....life IS more important than quilting?!?!?

I really am joking here. I am so blessed to be able to spend as much time sewing as I do. I am able to stay home(that reads - no outside employment because I really don't stay home much) and now that my boys are off at college and track girl drives herself everywhere, I do have the time for sewing that I have always yearned for. Life is good!!
Happy Quilting!
