I can't believe how long it has been since I even looked at this blog.  I miss having the time to check a few of my favorite blogs on a daily or at least weekly basis.  Hoping to be able to get back to that at least once in awhile. 

I think I am fairly used to working full time again but it hasn';t been easy.  I was so used to making my own schedule and running errands and grocery shopping at slow times and always having the laundry up to date.  Having to learn to just go with the flow a little more and things will get done "eventually".   My hubby has also pitched in and days I work till 6:00 he will do dinner.  Usually just heating up leftovers but great I don't have to deal with it when I get home.   He is also planning on retiring the end of the year (he is submitting the papers today) so will be nice to have the extra help with things next year.

Summer has been super busy getting the quilt shop fully stocked again.  We are now at the point where every time some fabric comes in I have to rearrange to make room.  That is not all bad as it is nice to always have something new to put out. 

The rest of the summer has been helping Mandy get ready for going off to college (in less than three weeks now).  Started with a two day orientation in June, followed by several shopping trips (boy the need tons of stuff), back up to the college to open bank accounts, drop off medical forms etc. and now trying to take care of some of the last details and wondering how it is all going to fit in the van?

I didn't have much time to sew for awhile but recently finished two shop samples have have them hanging up now.  One was to show a different use for a striped fabric and the other to show off fabrics just received in the shop.

Glad to see you are still finding a minute or two to quilt. I have been curious about all the shop set up and about getting Mandy ready for college. Somehow it all comes together or at least the sun comes up in the morning, right?

I've missed your personal posts too. Like the use of the stripes in your shop sample. You going to have a workshop on it? Looks like it would be fun to make. I never went through the flow of college, but from all I've heard it's quite an expensive undertaking! Sandi
