Catching up

It seems like a lot of us in blog land getting caught up in summer. Posts are fewer and far between when there is so much else going on out there, in the real world. I was about to admit that I am enjoying the lazy days of summer, but realized there has been nothing lazy about my days. Whoever came up with that false statement anyways?

One of my reasons for being absent from this blog is wedding planning. It kicked into high gear at the four month mark, and now we are past the three month mark. It's been fun planning, but not until I bought a dress did it become that way. Before that, I devoted every spare moment to making a muslin of a dress and watched summer slip away and my stress level skyrocket. Then, I found a dream of a dress and now I have my life back and can devote my spare time to sewing other things, like these blocks for the Pieced Together Quilting Bee from May! How did I let things get so behind?

There have been other events too: family visits; appendectomies (he is ok now); new babies to visit; friends to be with; Sopranos, Seasons 1, 2, and 3; and the usual life activities. I miss my sewing machine though and I look through my flickr favorites daily, planning my next projects. I hope to be present on this blog more often for the rest of the summer. You may have to put up with some wedding related posts from me, but not even I can talk and think wedding all the time (smile) and so I will have a few non-wedding related projects in the works to share soon.
