Empty Nest

The house is soooo quiet. All the boys are off to work and it's just me, me, me!
Here is what I was working on this weekend. I made some blocks from the Mistletoe Manor fabric I had in the closet. I'd so love to have a Christmas quilt to put on the wall for this Christmas, hmmm.
Added some more blocks to the nine patches I already had and made a couple of little basket blocks.

It was a quiet weekend and I got a lot sewn. We are deciding what we will be doing on our vacation in Bar Harbor, Maine in the next couple of weeks so there was discussion on that. James is coming with us. He's never been to Maine and his boss is closing the shop so he has a week off that just happens to coincide with ours. He spent the weekend gathering new clothes for his job interview on Friday. It's a very BIG job interview with great potential. Please say some prayers for him. This would be a fabulous opportunity. I can't really say too much about it but when the interview is over I'll tell more. Think really good thoughts for James. I'm a little superstitious about saying too much and jinxing it.
Anyway, he needed new clothes and shoes so that's what he went looking for this weekend. Got some nice things at Macy's. He cleans up real well.

I need to go and get some food shopping done and a few of the endless laundry things taken care of. Hope you have a good day and just to make it a little better to start with here's a little inspirational photo of the day. Sigh....

I'll send some good thoughts out for James and his interview. That is, after I catch my breath!

OMG!!! Isn't he just the most gorgeous guy around! Love his hair 'cause it's a bit like mine. Only mine's grey! Oh, well....I can dream.

I am sending my prayers for a great interview.

Great blocks, I can't wait to see your quilt.

YUM YUM he is so cute.

That's one beautiful man you got there, dee. The quilt blocks ain't too shabby either.

Oh thanks for the picture! It helps make the morning. And good luck on the Christmas quilt. You DESERVE it.

Well, I'm done for the rest of the day. I can't see being interested in trial briefs after THIS. He is my one last fantasy... Thanks, Dee. You know how to cheer a girl up like no one I know.

Oh, uh, and, uh, good luck to James. Been there and it's nail-biting time, isn't it?

Love the inspirational picture. I've loved him since 21 Jump Street.
