Back to the Grind

Well, I have just re-joined the full time work force after a two year lay-off. Needless to say I am exhausted as I try to re-acclimatize myself to the schedule and the additional stress of my son's wedding being 6 days away. I will be posting pictures of my granddaughter in her flower girl dress and updating you on the tips and tricks I will be using to still fit my beloved quilting time back into this insane schedule.
I'm sure many of you out there are juggling full time jobs, kids, and much more and might be able to share a tip or two with me also.
Let me know how you handle it all, and I'll keep you posted on my progress. I am currently working on an alphabet quilt which I hope to give my neighbor for the birth of their first child; however, looking at the progress (or lack of)that I am making and the size of her belly...I'm not sure i'll make it.... Just before returning to work I made a shop sample for the local shop where I also teach and as soon as that comes back to me I will be posting photos. It is a vibrant flannel quilt perfect for a tween and fast and easy to make. The cutting actually takes longer than the assembly.

Happy Quilting,
Robin
