Falling Behind

Now, before you think that I’ve abandoned my word, let me just say that I have been endeavoring – at work, at home, in the craftroom, etc. – just not on the internet.  And, I don’t necessarily think that’s a bad thing – although, I do want to try harder in this space.  It just didn’t work out this week.

Work was crazy this week.  It’s a long story, but lots of hearings, trips to the prison, stress, family meetings, etc.  But it’s done.  And, in the midst of it, I had some sad news – you may remember this story – and unfortunately, Jhontue ran out of lives, and passed away early this week.  At the time of her sentencing, we only thought she had a few weeks to live, and as always, she amazed everyone, hanging on for four more years.  Rest in peace Jhontue.

While I endeavored at work, I fell behind with the Lilypad Month of Challenges – but I did a few pages today, and now I’m only 3 pages behind instead of seven –

Now, if the Chargers (Joe is a fan, why I don’t know) weren’t the 4:40 game, and I hadn’t promised my husband to make Oatmeal Raisin cookies, I’d probably catch up.  And, if tonight weren’t the Golden Globe Awards, I might catch up, but they are, I did, and they are, so I’m going to fall even farther behind.  I’ll catch up.

As far as quilting goes, I just didn’t have a lot of time this week – I did make one more block for the Penny Sampler – stacked flying geese blocks that shape up like a  tree.  My big adventure this week, though, was I started watching the videos for Roben-Marie’s You’ve Got Mail Art class – and I actually made art, and I have it in my bag, ready to take to the post office tomorrow.  I did take a photo, but I can’t show it to you until Mindy gets it, so that’ll have to wait.

And, as part of that big adventure, I bought a new art supply – a gelli plate. More on that later . . . I have cookies to make!
