On the farm

So here I am, an adult with a family and living with my parents again. Before you judge, I'm here because my husband is in Afghanistan and he wanted me to be with my family instead of all alone in the big city. And let me tell you, there's nothing like living in the city to make you appreciate the country! I even bought myself a pair of cowboy boots! So I have set myself up on the back porch with a crafting area. I am in the final stage of my quilt (designed by Brenda Riddle of Acorn Quilt and Gift Company -- the best!). I will post pictures when it is done. I am taking a little break from my sewing machine after 4 days of pressure-filled sewing, helping my sister in law finish her first quilt before she had to go back to North Carolina. So I'm taking it easy, working on a penny rug, that way I can sew in an arm chair and pick up my daughter every 2 minutes when she wants to get on my lap (for 3 seconds, I think she just does it to make sure she can). She's still a little shaky after all the disruptions of Daddy leaving and coming out here to Idaho.
