"...in a time lacking in truth and uncertainty and filled with anquish and despair, no woman should be shamefaced in attemping to give back to the world, through her work, a portion of its lost heart." Louise Bogan, American Poet 1897-1970

WHOA Nellie

     The past two weeks have been a whirlwind and I feel if I am ever to get caught up with everything I'm going to need to stop the world and get off for a while. Last week hubby was on vacation and we spent two glorious days on the coast in Gold Beach, Oregan getting our ocean fix. Two days after we got home hubby's oldest daughter and granddaughter and my youngest son came for a visit.  Travis had to leave Monday (sniff) and the girls left Wednesday (sniff). What a wonderful time it all was and now I'm paying for it, but gladly. Tuesday the girls and I had a movie marathon while I tucked in threads from my FMQ on grandson's guilt. I'm almost done with the FMQ and I'm so excited how well it is turning out. Whoda thunk? Laundry is all caught up, but the housework is weighing on my shoulders as well as weeding the gardens. Plus, there is all these quilts to finish and more to start and blogs to catch with!! Little by little it will all get done.
     So. That's why I haven't been commenting or anwsering e-mails.  Now you know what I've been up to. How about you?
     Blessing galore on your day!  Deborah


  1. Gad about.


    That's what summer is all about don'tcha know?

  2. We had house guests all last week. It felt like Saturday every day last week. Now that it is Saturday it didn't feel like it! So I'm also behind on reading and playing catch up (with blogs and laundry and house cleaning, oh my!)

  3. I was afraid you are sick! Glad you spent wonderful time with your family - this is the best thing in the world, even better than quilting!
