Catching Up and On the Wall

Hi friends, it's been a very busy few weeks for me. In an earlier post I mentioned my plans, which have now come and gone. First, I vacationed in Cabo San Lucas. A great vacation. We arrived home at 10 pm and threw a send-off to the Navy party for our youngest son at 6 pm the following day. After the party, I tried to spend as much time with my son as possible. It was a bit hard because he was getting nervous and not sleeping at night, so when he finally did fall asleep he slept, and slept, and slept. We had a final night out for dinner at a favorite restaurant and then delivered him to MEPS (Military Entrance Processing Station) for check-in. The following morning we were able to attend his swearing-in ceremony and then he was off for the Great Lakes, IL. Fast forward to the weekend and I attended my high school reunion. Thirty-five years, can that be right? So, now I'm back to work and planning out my projects. I am working on a cute owl quilt and have another owl quilt waiting in the wings. I guess this will be the year of the owl. Also, I've decided to Mod Podge the top of my laptop with fabric (black and white polkas, what else?). This evening I was all set to go when I reviewed instructions on the Mod Podge Rocks site and found that there is a special Mod Podge with use for fabric. I don't know how much of a difference it makes but I thought I'd wait until tomorrow so I can run out and pick up a bottle. Stay tuned for before and after pics.

That's it for me. A very busy few weeks indeed. Do you have vacation plans? What are you working on?

  1. Debbie, very cute little owls. Just remember the birds, don't make that mistake agian (which I didn't mind).
    I feel for you about sending your son off. My youngest just moved to Chico and I had a hard time adjusting. Take care...
