I'm Back

Well, now I have my repaired computer back, so no more excuses for not posting.  I will get back into the swing of things, I hope, soon.

Tomorrow, I play Mah Jongg, and get back to quilting in the evening.  In the meantime, I've made a LOT of hexagons... I'm almost to 400 now!  My problem is that I'm running low on cat fabrics I haven't used yet.  I picked up some new ones at Road to California, but only 7 or 8, so still need a lot.  I will have to start scourimg the internet for cat fabrics I don't have already.

I really would like to feel inspired to just sit at my sewing machine and sew something, but the mojo hasn't been there.  I DO have to make my spring seasonal quilt, part of the series that my mini group is making.  I will be selecting fabrics for that in the next week or two I hope... perhaps I will feel the urge to actually work on the quilt itself once I have my colors selected.

I started dieting with my husband on Monday - we are trying to do this together, so we are cooperating on keeping bad stuff out of the house at the same time.  Perhaps this will help us both stay on target.  It wasn't exactly a New Year's resolution or anything, just a desire on both our parts.

Good News!  My son and his long time girlfriend have set a date for their wedding - they are getting married on June 2nd.  My husband and I leave on our cruise to Alaska on the 3rd of June.  It will be a busy month!  I'm so looking forward to BOTH events. 

Luke and Jennifer have been engaged for about 5 years, so this is something we have been waiting for for a long time.  She has finished college (BA), and he is still finishing his up.  I hope they make it, they are a very cute couple, and obviously deeply in love.  Bless them both and their union.
