okay, who hid it?

Hid what? you ask….. my energy, my ambition, my creativity, my…. well, you get the picture.  I’m in another slump.  Probably not really a slump, probably more just simply ticked off…..I need to replace the tension spring on the Tin Lizzy again.  That is a real PITA to do and I’m avoiding doing it, but I have a quilt on the frame and a friend who is wanting to use my unit as her machine is in the shop…..Maybe I can convince DH to get it done after I cook him one of his favorite dishes for dinner.

I’ve spent the previous 3 days babysitting g-kids while their parents (my son and DIL) went to Vegas.  DIL has had some stress stemming from her family and my son decided it would be nice to get her away for some fun time – it was good for both of them.  As for me and 3 kids, well let’s just say I’m not as young as I used to be.  And what kid wouldn’t try to pull something over on gramma?!  They found out real quick that gramma isn’t a push over….. Overall they are really well behaved kids and I enjoyed them.

I had taken some yarn for knitting, a couple patterns and fabric to cut a couple outfits out for the G-daughter, and never took any of it out of the truck…The yarn is back in the knitting bag next to my chair.  The fabric and patterns are still out staring at me…….  Maybe I’ll get an increase in energy tomorrow and get those cut out.  I already have a blouse for me and a shirt for the hubby cut out, sitting next to the machine waiting to be sewn up.  If I get a surge and get the quilt on the frame done, I’m thinking I’ll be doing some embroidery while I sew up a few garments. 

So for now, nothing on the quilting front…….

Maybe the grandkids took it - or maybe it's the heat - or maybe it took a vacation and is visiting my mojo - ;)) Wherever it is - hope you find it soon - ;))
