Today I got blocks 9 and 10 done. These are blocks for October and December. Yes, I know I jumped around a little bit. I still need to do blocks for August and November.
I finally dug the fabrics out that I will use for those blocks. I don't think I will do anymore blocks tonight, but I may go ahead and cut some of my strips that border the blocks. I think the pattern said I needed 48 strips. These are cut from the scraps left over from my blocks. My goal is to sew the last two blocks tomorrow and get the blocks borders on Friday and get it all sewn together on Saturday. But you know how that will go, nothing ever goes as planned.
Today is my Aunt Deb's 50th birthday. I forgot until I was talking to mom earlier. I tried to call to wish her happy birthday, but she was not home. Maybe I will try again later. Mom will be home on Friday!!!!! I can't wait, I miss her so much when she is gone. She will be home for 28 days. We will have Thanksgiving together but she will have to leave back out a few days before Christmas. That is killing me. I have never spent a Christmas without my Mom. I will make sure Chantal spends Christmas with us, she has never been away from Mom during the Holidays either. She is only 23 and is single so I truly don't want her to be alone. But I know it will be just as hard on Mom. She will be on the boat, with no family only 8 men to cook for. How lonely is that???
The boys go back to school tomorrow and I will miss them. I so enjoy having them home with me. We always enjoy our time together, even though they fight. I actually can't wait for their Christmas break. And during the Winter months they are out of school alot due to the weather.
