So where have I been? who knows, I sure don't. It takes a lot of energy to look after two grandchildren but it sure is fun. My mother is getting along very well. I have had an angel drop right out of the blue to help us. My uncle that died recently had been at home with help for almost 5 years. The woman that looked after him contacted me about helping us. I was so surprised but so relieved. She is absolutely wonderful. She helps me with so many details and my mother is thriving with her there.
I haven't done much sewing. I did make some pillows for the beach to match our new sofa and love seat. After 25 years we thought it was time to do some updating.
My son or his wife usually pick the boys up about 4 so I sometimes have a little while to get up in my sewing room if I am not totally worn out. I don't have any direction at the moment. I really like to have a project to work on that really energizes me. It is very relaxing to just piddle a bit. I made a few houses. These were made from my scrap bag.
I really like this one, do you see the monkey?
When I can't focus on anything else I try to put scraps together into little squares. I find concentrating on figuring out what to put where takes my mind off of the hectic life I am living right now. It won't be this way forever. I am not one that loves a lot of activity. I would be very happy to stay home and piddle and put together scrap squares for days on end.
And of course there are always liberated stars to make.
I will have some time this summer. My daughter in law is taking the boys to her parents for 2 weeks.
What do you do to motivate yourself? HELP give me some suggestions.
