Leap Day!

Or whatever the official name is for Feb.29th! Sad to say no quilting or piecing to report this week but happily much rewarding results from manual labor on youngest DS' condo to help him finish the renovations. Today, it's done & I wish that I had pictures to prove it because it's beautiful & we are all very happy with our hard work, but my body will not do what it did 30 years ago without telling me it is now 30 years older! Oh I do hate that part of the aging process. A friend once said to me that "our bodies have a 'use by' date on them", & I said "yes, the Manufacturer put it there"!
I did sew today for a while, after finishing up at Jonathan's I made the necessary alterations to some drapes for his second bedroom. The final touches to the renovation!
I have been blog hopping this evening & I am envious of everyone who has been able to sew, but I notice a few have "the crud" so prayers go out for speedy return to health. Saturday & Sunday are already committed so I have to wait till Monday to sew, but then I have to play catch up with everything I let go at the house this past week. Maybe I can sneak in a few chores over the weekend between meetings, church etc.
Tomorrow is a new month, the year is already speeding by & there are so many quilts to make, so much fabric to buy/use & so many challenges awaiting- why is it that time goes so fast as we get older? When we are children time drags between birthdays, Christmas & school holidays & now the days are gone before we know it.

Hi Roslyn,

Thank you for visiting my blog and leaving a comment. At least now I know that feature works. The templates for the shells and the baptist fan are investments that pay for themselves and it doesn't take that long to do so. I'm now looking at the Circle Lord swirls for my next purchase.
