Cooking, Sewing, Working, Traveling, Gardening and Pondering

Continuous effort - not strength or intelligence - is the key to unlocking our potential.

2014 Off with a Bang

Not really, but I thought I'd exaggerate.  It's now Jan 5 and I have been off work since Dec 20.  What an incredible break!  I did work some as need to solve issues, answer questions and help people out, but not being in the office for that long was nice.  Until about 4 days ago, when I started to miss my routine and started to get sick of house work and cooking.  My poor hubs has only had 4 days off since the weekend before Christmas and really appreciates a home cooked meal when he gets to be home.  Oh the wife of a lineman, it's a work of joy and love.

What have I been doing with all this time off you ask? Ok you probably didn't, but oh well, I digress.

I have sewed and finished up projects and rested and cooked and baked and visited with family and decorated and undecorated and brunched - oh my.

Here are a few of my projects.

Yoga Mat Tote

Quilt Squares from a panel I'm in love with


One nightmare of a square

Some items I picked up at the local stitching shop
