Today's life questions? Best blog archive service these days? What to make with my long hoarded Liberty fabric? How to watch your first born get into a car and drive away?
Every year I've had my blog, I've used an online service to slurp the year's contents into a hardbound book. Well, not every year because the last book I have covers 2013. That means I have to get 2014 and 2015 printed and bound. Wondering if anyone has any great suggestions for a company to use seeing as how I've been out the game for two years.
Second, I've been collecting Liberty fabric for six or seven years and finally pulled it all out and let it sit on my cutting table until I had a plan. I cut every last bit of it into 4" squares for a total of 1,350 squares. I'm making a king sized and a double sized quilt with it for my mom. She's a special mom deserving of special quilts. Plus, I'll be able to visit them often and make sure she is taking good care of them.
Lastly, this one got her driver's license last Friday. As we were headed there, her in the driver's seat, I let her know the pitfalls of being a first born child. I know she is experiencing it daily but I thought hearing the words come out of my mouth might be . . . oh, I don't know. Reassuring that I'm aware of her plight? She has the unfortunate circumstance of being my first born. She is the one who has taken the brunt on teaching me all the parenting stuff first.
