First off, our summer vacation:
We spent almost 5 weeks visiting family and friends in Northern Nevada and California. Yes, that's a LONG time but there were lots of people to see and I couldn't think of a better way to not have to deal with the Vegas summer heat than to just go away from this hot desert. And, this year was record setting heat here at home. My poor fellow Vegas people.
For any of you who have little ones or for those of you who remember all too well vacationing with your little ones...you know it's not alway a "vacation" to go somewhere else for that long with young children who rely on the comforts of home and don't quite get why we are not home for that long. I felt like I needed a vacation from our vacation when I got home and it really made me realize how much I love my home even if it's so far from all of my extended family and in a town I don't really like. Our house really is our home!
I also realized that I really missed creating things and was craving my sewing machine by the end of our trip. I guess that's why I've been a little busy bee sewing away some new rag quilts and cutting lots of fabric for even more quilts! Which leads to...
