Y’all, it is horribly quiet around here. Although, at thirteen, he’s become a functional mute (unless you count the grunts he now employs in lieu of actual verbalizing), at least I know he’s still in the house. As much as I grouse about all the crap he pulls and his eyeball rolling and his snarky teenage comments, I miss my Beanie. If this is a precursor of what’s to come when he leaves for college, I fear I’ll have to knock over a convenience store or two..or ten.. to pay for all that Xanax. Then again, I get that same feeling when I think he may never leave home. It’s true what men say…women are never satisfied.
He’ll be back tomorrow night and I’ll be back to bitching about everything Captain Studly, but in the meantime I am a sad sack. And no, I haven’t had my Xanax. I’m saving it for college.
Y’all, I CLEANED OUT MY CLOSET TODAY AS A DISTRACTION. Do you know there’s actual carpet in there? Is that a sign of a sick mind or what?! I stopped myself before I snatched up the mop but it was a battle of epic proportion.
Okay, enough of that…here’re some things currently in progress from my sewing corner.
That’s me, before Captain Studly left, quilting the Albatross. It’s about 90% quilted and I cannot wait for it to be OH-VER!
I chose to quilt it with straight lines (I believe the modern quilters call them ‘organic lines’, however, I just call ’em straight…whatever works, right?) mainly because I can’t free-motion quilt on my new boy-toy there in the picture. Captain Studly’s just grateful it’s almost done.
I also have another rag quilt to snip and then it too will be finished. Rag quilts are very forgiving and go together very quickly…love ’em!
Well, now that I’ve snivelled and whined a bit, I feel better.
Happy Thursday, y’all!
