This is such a sad time for a friend from my online quilt group. She lost a grandson today, just a few weeks old and so unexpectedly. My heart is just aching for Lori and her son and daughter-in-law. There are quilts being made for the family - the only thing we know how to do at a time like this.
On a happier note, I finally decided this weekend what I wanted to buy myself for Christmas. I know, I know, I'm a couple of months late! Every year I treat myself to one special thing, and today I picked up a nice little portable DVD player to sit on my sewing table. In my old sewing room I had a TV and I would load up movies and sew for hours on end. In the new sewing room, I didn't have a cable connection and it was way too complicated to get one in there. So this solved the problem. I will spend more time now sewing if there's something to watch/listen to in there.
My body's too old to handle this time change thing. I take weeks to adjust, so I'm dragging tail tonight. I'm about to head upstairs and call it a day! But I did finish that quilt this weekend and will piece the backing tomorrow night. Check!!
