Back in the sewing room....

I finished up two baby boy quilts I started before "the break up" happened. Trying real hard to keep busy. My daughter from Hawaii came in yesterday with her two girls and my other daughter from North Dakota will be here next week with her two. Nice to have a noisy house, they are full of life.
Some photos of the quilts I made for twin boys and a Huggies wipes case.

These are just five inch "boy" fabrics. I straight line quilted both, then washed them. Love how they turned out. Now to get them in the mail to an APO in Japan. The babies are due in July. Just thought it needed something to fill up the blank areas inbetween so I added the inbetween fabric strips.

Trying to Get it Together

Haven't posted in awhile. My significant other has decided he is in love with someone else. I booted him out, but it is kicking my butt. I miss him and in time I will get over it. Try real had not to cry all the time, he is not worth with. We had a 8 1/2 year run and that is a long time and memories to get over. Done with men! There are worse things than being alone. My house is a wreck and I don't care, haven't made the bed in days (never do that) and sleep is here and there. I will survive this and it will get better. I need to get my sewing mojo back, right now I can't concentrate. I left my purse on the top of my car today and drove off. That is how stressed I am. Good thing a nice person found it and managed to leave a note with my neighbor across the courtyard. Here I am blubbering about my situation with her and she tells me she lost her son to a car accident this past Sunday. My problem is nothing compared to her loss. Maybe this happened for a reason makes me think so.
