What's a Mother To Do...

...while waiting for a phone call from her only child away at Summer College?...






Start yet another project!

I suspect my house will be spotless and I'll have oodles of quilting projects finished by the time the next 6 weeks are over...it's either that or watch soap operas and gain 75 pounds from depression.

yup keep busy! getting used to the empty nest takes time! I kept so busy the first year it was silly - now it's like I love my peace and quite and when I have a full house I'm always ready to have the "me" time again.

I wonder what I would do with an empty next. Once when DD spent the night away, I got so much done! I was amazed.

This project looks very interesting.

Oh where did you get all the dots! They are awesome. May the six weeks go fast for you

Anya, you made me laugh. It sure is hard to fill my time when all my little peeps are gone. Sometimes feels like a displaced worker (and mine are close by) I've been trying to start some projects too.

Hmmm...cream puffs or fabric? It's a tough choice, but I think you made the right decision! Hang in there, 6 weeks is going to go by a lot faster than what you think!

I love your choice of fabrics... and somehow I don't see you staying still long enough for the 75 pounds to catch-up! Happy quilting, show us each day what you are working on, or show us your soap operas...but not the weight ;>), we will help your time to go fast!

Definitely keep busy! Sewing is the perfect therapy, although a little sweets with it won't hurt now and then.

Enjoy the empty nest while you have it. It's such a drastic change for everyone. But having projects to focus on is definitely the best way to help the time pass.
If the dots fabrics are the ones I've seen before, there's a sheen and shininess to them. You'll make gorgeous projects with them.

Also dealing with empty nest as 1st year college girl hasn't come home for the summer (just finished 3rd year-she's in the PT program-5 yr). You keep busy. There will come a time when they do need you again.
