I haven't posted here in a looooong time. I can't even remember when. I think it was before easter. We had hubby's parent's in for easter. In our small house, that was a full weekend. And I think before easter I was finishing three deadlines. Ugh. Or maybe it was two. At any rate I had a lot due. Hubby stayed home in the afternoons so I could get it done. And I did.
Then I had catching up to do last week after the in laws went home and then this week I thought Gem was due again, just saw it was not. Ugh. Oh well.
Now baby is laying down for her morning nap. I know she is sooooo tired, but will she sleep? I don't know, but I do know that she is screaching. Not screaming, just loud, what sound like happy squeals. Ugh. Baby baby baby. I so want her to sleep, I am so tired I want to nap. But she probably wont' because I want to. That's how it works, right?
I made strawberry jam last night. Wasn't planning on it, but Nadia was unhappy at the grocery store and I can't make good decisions when she's fussy, just can't think. So I ended up buying the sale, that is 4lbs of strawberries for $5. I don't even know if that is good or not. I think I cooked it too long. I don't think it's any good. It's dark. Almost moves like molasses. That is, it doesn't move at all!
I've decided to make our old worn out guest comforter into a guest quilt. I'm tearing it apart, using the batting for fluffing pillows or what not and then cutting the front and back into squares for the quilt. I've got so many other scraps that this shouldn't be a problem. I'm then going to use an old thermal blanket that's got the satin binding all torn up for the batting. Should be sufficiently warm. I could add another thermal inbetween for added warmth. I'll have to check salvation army for such a thing. And if this works well I am going to make one for our bed. My hubby brought lots of old blankets into our marriage and I think this will be a nice way to use them, without throwing them away. I've always wanted to quilt. And I mean really quilt. Like how they used to do it.
I think baby is asleep. So I am going to do the same.
