I've been very neglectful of my blog and my sewing too.  Things have been hectic but not really that busy.  I guess I've been watching more TV.  Let's go with it was a needed break.  I'm hoping to be back in the swing of things and ready to get going.

First, I'll try and get caught up on my pictures.  I've missed loads of days, but will make a conscious effort going forward.

Second, I'm going to get back to sewing.  I have at least four quilts I need to make, by September.  One for my youngest grandson, one for a young friend who is having her second boy, and the other two for for friends (well baby quilts for them to give away).  I'm busy setting up my sewing area. 

Right now it looks like this:

and actually this picture doesn't show how crazy it is.  I can't believe I had that much stuff in my closet.  I didn't realize how much I had accumulated.  I might have to go on a fabric diet -- or a donation kick.  it's insane how much I have (I feel a little like I'm a hoarder ...).

Third, we're starting up cocktail Wednesday, this week.  I'd love for you to join us -- either in person or at your place.  This week, we're doing my favorite.  Here's the link for the recipe, if you join up.

I'll probably start setting goals and everything.

Hope to see you Wednesday night for cocktails...
