Back in gear
It always seems to take me a day or 3 too get back in my routine after a trip but this time I seemed to adjust a little faster. It helped that I put everything away as soon as I got home Sunday so all I had left for Monday was a little laundry.
But the first thing I did Monday morning was get the kiln fired back up. I want all of these bottles done so I can get on with more fun things. Here's the collection so far. I took 3 more out this morning and have the last 4 in the kiln right now. So one task for the weekend is to get the glass table cleaned off and plan my first "real" projects.
The other thing that gets me back in a routine is to quilt some veterans quilts. This one was made by Julie. She did a king size quilt with these blocks and used the leftovers for this soothing quilt. I expect that she's over her "gray period" now.
Nancy was cleaning out her sewing room and found these beautiful blocks. There were just enough for a veterans quilts. I've found that the veterans quilts are the perfect size for orphan blocks and other abandoned UFO projects.
Today my primary objective is to make my Mother's Day card which I will not share until Monday. I'm already cutting it close to assume that she will even get it Saturday but, fortunately my Mom has never been a stickler for absolute dates. ....plus I just took her on a quilt adventure so that's gotta count for something!

My mother has been adamant that she doesn't want anything for her birthday. I haven't even mentioned "Mother's Day." Of course she still has cards from years ago. I told her yesterday that we are going to visit her brother next week, we just have to set a date for it.
