Not a whole lot of fun stuff going on around here lately. The picture shows the only sewing I've done lately, in dribs and drabs. My MIL, who used to travel a lot, gave me some pieces of batik fabric from Bali some months ago. I figured it'd be a good daughter-in-law thing to do to make her a lap quilt using them. I opted for triangles after seeing one somewhere that stuck in my mind, so I cut and arranged and I've been connecting triangles together in odd moment. I'm not big on brown, and I'm finding that sewing this just isn't very cheery. Ah well. I know Roger's mom will love it and I'm enjoying knowing that this will really surprise her.
Meanwhile, I've been busy with work and family (checking out a new middle school for C next year) and the usual household stuff.
Maybe it's the weather, or maybe it's a swing of the menopausal pendulum from insomnia to constant lethargy and sleepiness, but all I want to do is lie around and read. And I'm not talking about legal journals. I want chick lit and mindless mysteries and goofy romances.
