Two years later...

So, no posts in more than two years. Since that time, my 11 year old has started a very nice -looking blog, and has posted many times. She did this while home alone for a day. Sara, our nanny, pointed out that most kids, left alone at home for a day, spend their time jumping on sofas, eating ice cream out of the carton, and back before the days of caller ID, making crank phone calls.
Still no photos. Still no postings.
Nobody would suggest that this one counts. Unless I actually continue...

I'm miserable because I've agreed to give an hour-long talk to primary care physicians on Breast MRI. I'm dreading it, dreading it. One would think I'd just stop wasting time and get to it, but I still have hope that somebody will rescue me. Or there will be a major coming to our senses, making October no longer Breast Cancer Awareness Month, but something else... Global Clean Water Month?

I've taken up the cello. Really. It's not that funny. I'm already as good as...some 5 year olds at the Ogontz Suzuki Institute we attended in August, and closing in on those 6 year olds, fast.

My intense cello studies ;) have taken a toll on my sewing room time, but unfortunately not my internet fabric shopping time. The fabric stacks up there are neatly pressed and rolled, but they are no longer confined to the top of the built-in cabinets. There are piles below the cutting table, in the "Projects In My Head" area, and on top of the plastic boxes holding collections of fat quarters and other coordinated collections. Perhaps as part of my penance, I should post pictures of my stash metastasis.

Today, I managed to work on three things: I am halfway into attaching a collar to a tunic that I fear may be too snug, but am too entrenched in to retreat. I cut out the pieces for my September Blocks of the Month at Quilted Threads. Most impressively, I finished quilting the Lime/Black Hip to Be Square Quilt and trimmed it. Maboo watched me do this, and prompted me to say, at least 8 times,

"Nobody who makes quilts actually needs any quilts."

Until next time, which should be around 2012,
Happy Sewing,
Happy Cello,
Happy following your passion(s),
