Tootie went home today...she wanted us to go home with her so bad. There were tears. She just did not want to let us go. But we have things we need to do. Should have came home and mowed the yard, but will do that tomorrow. I had left clothes on the line. So had to get home and get them in.
As I was listening to the washer this morn before I got distracted, I wondered do you other women find the sound of the washing machine kind of comforting? It just dawned on me that I really do. It is just a sound of home. If I close my eyes, I can even feel like I am back home in Tennessee.
With her being here my Lotus quilt project has been put on the back burner. It was initially paused because my daughter and I were both searching for more batiks in the colors she likes. Then by the time we found enough, Lo was here. It is something I need to pay attention to when doing the cutting so did not want to start while she was here.
So this evening, I thought I would see if I could start. And I did cut a few pieces cut, but not without thinking I had lost my mind first. There are some batiks designated to go with dark triangles, and then there were others I had decided were to go with the light triangles...I could not remember which fabrics I had done used and had to check the ones I had done made. Then I happened to think just where I had put the new batiks! One of those light bulb moments. So hopefully I will have a bit of time to work on them tomorrow. Once I get them cut, it won't take too long to get them sewn together.
