A Busy Week

We are in the midst of a very busy week. Over the weekend our oldest who is on the Speech Team had a competition about 2 hrs. away. She needed to be the school at 5am. The neighborhood homeowners association had the yearly meeting. The DH finally found someone to take over the presidency. The youngest played basketball between the JV and Varsity games. This game took place during the HO Assoc. mtg. After the Varsity game the bus rolls in to return the Speech Team. On Sunday, the oldest & 8 of her best friends had the rarely allowed sleepover. To keep the peace the youngest had 2 additional friends over!

Nothing like 9 highschoolers and 3 elementary kids. (Poor husband--the only boy in the house.) A Twister tournament, hourly drawings (every ones name in the hat), and Band Hero marathon were entertaining to both the adults and the kids. The sleds came out and the air hockey tournament was fit in at about 10am.

Upcoming is the Spelling Bee in 2 days. The oldest is organizing it. I am just the gopher girl.

The quilt on the design wall is moving along. I need some advice on the colors. Thurs. I will get the pics on. I also managed to get some quilting done on the Sister to the Lodge. Though the quilting is figured out for the Christmas quilt, I haven't found time to work on it.
One more day to work. Thursday the 3rd graders get a lesson on being in the spelling bee & the real thing on Thursday night.
Happy Quilting,
Bust that Stash!
Just Another Quilter


  1. Good Grief! My tail was dragging before I got down to where you first mentioned the quilt on the design wall! You must need a break, Gopher Girl! This will certainly be one week your girls will always remember fondly. What a Super Mom you are! (I hope you made one bathroom off limits to the girls, for your husband's sake! *giggle*) Take Friday off, then quilt like crazy. ---"Love"

  2. You do have a lot going on. My kids are all grown but I remember those days. Sometimes I even miss all of the activity of kids and their friends in the house. But now I have time to quilt, so that keeps me busy!

    Enjoy them while you can, they grow up so fast. Can't wait to see your pics of the quilt.


  3. Remember to breathe sometime in between all that!-Joanne

  4. I have two girls too, one is away at school and the other is out on her own. My DH endured years of being the only male ( we even have a female dog), It gets hectic, but is fun. Enjoy it all.

  5. Busy!!! You are super woman. I can't wait to see the pics :) Christine

  6. You found some time to eat and sleep in there somewhere I hope! Families have such busy lives these days. I hope you have some time to spend sewing or just cacthing your breath. Ann :-)
