Our Blessed Chaos

My hubby + a 1st grader + twins in kindergarten + 4 critters..... Yeah it is chaos, but we are blessed!

Today's Verse

For those handful of you that follow my little blog I wanted to let you know where I have been. As you may know, my Mom is still here and we have been quite busy! But then I decided to truly take advantage of her being here....

Last year I started a quilt for Sam and had the fabric to make quilts for Ben & Carlee as well. I really wanted to have them made for Christmas last year, but that was just too big of a goal. I got as far as quilting half of Sam's when I decided that there just wasn't enough time to make all three. Then we moved and I have been trying to get our house in order ever since. Now that it is somewhat manageable, thanks to my mom being here I wondered if I had enough time to get them completed for this Christmas. So I have been retreating into my sewing room every single chance I have.

My mom has been great - entertainting the kids, doing the cleaning & laundry etc. She even helped me pin baste a quilt!!! I should post this as another Gratituesday!!!! Anyways, I could go on and on about how great my mom is, but the point is that because she here and supporting me I should be able to get the quilts completed before she leaves! However, I still will need to spend every available moment in the sewing room and unfortunately that means neglecting the blogging world.

Just wanted to let you know where I have been and that I am away for purely selfish - but crafty reasons!! Well not entirely selfish, this is our kids first winter away from southern California. In other words, it is really cold here! Well not nearly as cold as I was used to in Canada, but after 5 years in California, these freezing temperatures seem down right nasty! Plus, we are keeping the temperature down and using our wood stove in the evenings, but the bedrooms are still quite chilly. So my main motive is to get the quilts done to keep my kids warm. I am hoping that they will like them enough to keep them on at night. Wishful thinking maybe?

As soon as I am done with the quilts I will be back.
