I'm happily married to wonderfully supportive husband. He wholeheartedly encourages my quilting habit. We have one lovely daughter who is less thrilled with my quilting habit unless she wants to distract me from some transgression on her part. Then she wants to send me to my sewing room to cool down.
I work full time in a R&D organization. So I spend most of day with with PhD chemists, engineers and physicists (including DH, whose office is down the hall from mine).
Quilting is where I recharge my batteries. I get to play with fabric, colors and be creative. I like machine piecing and prefer to do my quilt layouts on the computer before I start cutting.
Yes indeed it's been crazy around here and about to be even more so....but it's all worth it! He is 20 months old now....so it will take a while to adjust! I think he will be fine though. We spent a month with them in December and we talk to them on the messenger with webcams almost every day so he is very familiar with us. I'll post a photo soon after getting back!
We are near the final process to adopt our nephew from Pakistan. We had been working on this since Dec!!! USCIS approved our application finally. I booked a one way flight for the 7th of Aug. today since we don't know how long this will take! I also rescheduled my appt. at the US Embassy for the 10th to submit the documents. After that I will need to get a physical exam for Nameer done and then will call DH to come for the interview. I don't know when that will be yet and he needs to stay and get his work done as it's almost harvest time around here! It will be a hard month over there with the heat and the elect. goes out at any time with no warning....which means not even a fan to cool off!!! Oh yeah, and it's fasting time for Ramadan coming up too!!! I am sure emotions will be running high as well. It will be really hard on them when we take him and it will hurt us too but it will all be fine soon. It would be great if our sister has her baby while we are there too! I would love to be there for that! I really hope it's a girl this time so I can get cute girlie clothes!!!
You are wonderful! Thank you for solving my issues surrounding how to consistently stage the fabric with your cut out. I don't know how to thank you. How smart! The name of your file and the way you deal with it all is great also.
