Well, here I am after a loooong absence, trying my hand at this blogging thing again. My goal is to post once a week. Lots of changes at our house. My husband has gone back to work after 5 years of being home with a back injury. He is a truck driver, so this means he is gone for 4 or 5 days at a time, leaving me with lots of time for sewing and knitting. It also means that I am home being sole caregiver to his mum, who lives with us. She is 91 years old and has dementia, so looking after her is a full time job. She can be left alone for short periods during the day, but she's scared to be alone after dark. She goes to a day program twice a week, so those are the days I do my shopping and such. She is keeping busy knitting, mostly dishcloths as following a pattern is very difficult for her. Anyone needs dishcloths, she has tons!
I have been busy sewing this week-end. Got a good start on Easy Street. For anyone not familiar, this is a mystery quilt from Bonnie Hunter. The first clue came out on Friday.You can check out other peoples start to this project by going to Quiltville's blog post linky here:http://quiltville.blogspot.com/2012/11/easy-street-monday-link-up-1.html
