Monday Morning Star Count 2014/15

Though I faithfully brought my sewing box with me everywhere this past week, I hardly managed to get in more than a couple stitches.  I think I stitched on just part of the outer ring of an old diamond.. not even photo worthy.  Sorry!  I am almost finished with the binding on Sabrina's quilt though.  Hoping to have it back to them asap so Merrill can show it off when the family's together this week.
This coming week is Spring Break and with George off of school I don't yet know what sort of trouble we'll get into.  I'm hoping for Easter crafts and playdates, but I think we'll probably end up with lots more sidewalk chalk, digging in the yard, and early baths.  I'm guessing it'll be a hands-on mothering sort of week, so my EPP expectations aren't to high. Gotta make memories with the kiddos, don't want them to remember me as all-quilt and no play.

I hope you guys have been more productive.


  1. I really really have to go on with my EPP Project, glad that you remind me every week ;-)

My Travel Quilt Story

**ETA-- Check out my completed Travel Quilt #3 here**

I don't know about you, but I check my blogger stats a couple times a day.  It's nice to see how readers find me, who has linked to me, and where they are.  In the last week though, there's been a gap, a hole.  I usually have at least a couple hits a week from readers in Japan, this week-- none.  Of course with such tragedy, I can't expect them to take time out (and use valuable electricity) to check in on my little ol' blog here, but still, the absence makes me worry about them even more.  I was thinking about how I can go back to  posting more about quilts but still satisfy my need to talk about Japan.. 

Victoria took this great photo of me at her retreat last weekend and I've wanted to write a post about it, and then it clicked, "Oh Yeah~" let's go back to the quilt that started me off on my EPP obsession..
Here we go.  Travel Quilt #1, aka "Ayane's Star" See, I was going to J…

Monday Morning Star Count, November 30, 2015

I have not even sewn one stitch this week.  I did manage to find my cutting table and mat, and it was nice to see them after what seemed like too long, but I didn't cut anything.  I didn't press anything.  I didn't do much other than ponder how I will organize my new space.

If you have stitched though, please tell us!

You don't realize how much you are actually going to lose when you go through a divorce.  You mostly think of the things you don't like and how you will be rid of them.  The things you'll gain like personal choice and freedom.  I knew I would lose big things.  Time with my children.  My home.  
But there are other things that are gone that have had much bigger impact than I could have anticipated.  Like my washer and dryer.  
I spend an awful lot of time at the laundromat these days, but also doing laundry wherever else I'm able to.  Not having free laundry access has greatly influenced my routines and the choices I make.  Not unlike when I lived in Washburn and would wear only light colors one week and only dark colors the next.  You choose clothes that wash easily and wear well.  You are strategic with your wardrobe choices based on when you can do laundry again..
