I love how Georgie curls into a tight little ball like a furry cinnamon bun.
 Today was the first day of school for my kids, and the last first day that I will have all of them home together. Hard to believe that a year from now we will be taking my big boy to college.

All that to say that it's quiet at my house. Almost too quiet. I met a friend for coffee after carpool, got my hair cut, did two loads of laundry, worked on some SeamedUP stuff, and it's only 1:30.

It means that I cleaned up the kitchen and ran the dishwasher and made the bed...and it stayed that way. It means no one asked for lunch as soon as I got the breakfast dishes done.

It means the dogs have been following me from room to room, napping at my feet, wondering where all their people went. I know how they feel.

It's so quiet that this fellow showed up for lunch.
 I did get some work done on my WannaBee's house block.  Jodi and Laura were right about ripping out those stitches - the quilting has gone smooth as silk since I got rid of the batting and back with the spray adhesive.  I've finished the pale blue and need to switch to the brown thread next, I think.  



  1. Jen,
    Your block looks fantastic. Looks like you are pretty close to being finished. I haven't gotten all of the pieces appliqued on yet so I haven't started quilting. Maybe in the next couple of days.
    Great work.

    1. Thanks, Ben! I got the yellow in the curtains and lamps done today. It's so much fun when it's going smoothly.

  2. Jen,
    It is a beautiful room. Are you coming over to Team Applique?


Thanks for joining the conversation!
