Long day today. I drove my youngest back to school today. She had a month off between semesters and I got used to having her at home again. The University of Illinois is 3 hours away from our house. The trip there went really fast even with fog all the way. The trip home seemed to take forever, but I made it. It is way too quiet in the house now. Samantha (DD#2) got Guitar Hero and The Beatles for her Wii for Christmas, so there was a lot of music eminating from my living room the last couple of weeks. Then last week the husband was off work. Now everyone is gone except me and the dogs. (And they are sleeping).

I didn't get much quilting done this week end, but I did pick out my 6" star block for the swap with my Bee. I got them all cut out and ready to sew. I think I got organized to get some projects done. Will take pictures when my stars are done.
Have a good week


  1. I know some women who would give their eye teeth for a peaceful house! Like you I prefer to have everyone about the place. It would be nice to see your star blocks. Happy Stitching, Ann :-)

  2. Glad you had a good trip back with your daughter. I love the feeling of a quiet house. I can't wait to see your star blocks and what pattern you settled on :) ~Christine

  3. In contrast to how I love to have company, I also love a quiet house, with maybe some nice music playing. Now you have no reason to get those stars going! ---"Love"

  4. Glad to see you again;)
    Quiet houses....I just got back to mine after being with the company of family and friends constantly for a month....very quiet here compared to their places.
    Enjoy your peace and make the best of it.
    Thank goodness for telephones and internet to help keep us all connected;)
    Happy Quilting, Kathleen
