Something Different

Hi everyone! I just finished putting the last stitch in the binding of this table runner. It is a more primitive type project then I normally do. So, "Something Different!" This is a pattern by Primitive Pieces by Lynda called Primitive Sketches. I hand quilted this one. I wanted to try out some new thread I bought called Aurifil. I love it! It works beautifully in the machine as well as by hand! Finally an everything thread! :0)
Well, on the home front, I have recently gone back to work. I started in May actually. I was asked by a nice local family to be a "Nanny" to there daughter. She is 8 months old now. The Mom wanted to go back to work, but did not want her daughter in a daycare. I am enjoying it but I also really miss sewing and sharing with my blogging friends. It has been some what of an adjustment for me. I've been a stay-at-home Mom for 21 years. I am still trying to balance my time to get housework, shopping and some sewing in. I feel that I am finally starting to get better at this juggle act! I hope to be able to fit in visits to my blogging friends to! :0)
