This week I am on vacation. I needed a little break from the daily grind so I packed my toddler into the car (along with everything a toddler needs – good thing my car is big!) and I headed out on a 6 hour car ride to Idaho. My GPS said I should have arrived around 3pm, but what with stopping for food, diaper changes, and toddler running breaks it was a lot more like 5pm.
I am visiting my oldest friend in the world – we have been friends for almost 20 years now. The crazy part is that we met in middle school in California, and somehow we both ended up in the Pacific Northwest only a 6 hour drive apart. It is so wonderful having her so close – we usually get together once a year for a baby play date and recharging of mommy batteries.
The baby was sleeping in the stroller while the older ones got some energy out at the park.
Don’t think I have been doing any sewing while I have been here, I just haven’t been doing any for myself! I spent last night helping my bestie learn how to use the brand new walking foot that we bought for her machine yesterday. Let me tell you, she has made a handful of quilt blocks, one quilt top and now one completed wall hanging. For only quilting for 4 months now…she’s got some mad skills!
Us mommies stayed up until after midnight visiting and quilting last night, and Mrs. L got the entire Pink Fairy wall hanging quilted!
She did such a great job! I am so happy for her, she is a lot like me in that she has fallen in love with quilting because of the instant gratification factor. As soon as you sew a few seams you know if you are going to like it, you have instant results!!!
That’s my week in review – taking my first solo vaca with my baby, seeing my oldest friend in the world, lots of baby play and some quilting at night! Don’t think that I just abandoned my hubby with no thought – he has been working crazy long hours this past month and he said that since he can’t spend time with us during the week he wanted us to go and have fun! My only worry is coming home to a completely empty fridge and an overload of unwashed laundry 🙂
What are you doing this week?
