Super Woman

I have had a couple of tough weeks trying to do the "super woman" act - balancing too many activities with/for the children, trying to hold down a very stressful and too busy job, keep the house running (groceries, cleaning, dishes, cooking - you know the routine), trying to get the guild workshops organized for next year, and not finding any time left in the day for restoring my sanity. I have been in this place lots of time before and know the importance of my own self care. So today I am insisting on it and am going to do some quilting. I have had moments here and there, mostly late at night or at soccer and baseball practises/games, to work on my hand stitching. On the left is block two of the "Journey of a Quilter" BOM. I am enjoying having this quick and easy project to pick up in spare moments.
So please don't call/email me - I'm at the quilt studio with the "Do Not Disturb" sign on the door!

Sorry to bother you, but I hope you're getting a lot done in your quilting room.

Good for you! Do you need me to really quietly slip some food under the door so you can keep up your strength?
I loved all your pictures, the blocks, the fabric, the camping, AND the blueberries! but I have to tell you I think you are wrong about your girls eating more than they picked, because they probably picked every one that they ate!

Sounds perfect - just lock yourself away. If you don't take care of yourself, who will? Hope you had a good day.
