Playing Catch-Up... (With a Side of French Fries)

I've been MIA lately. I have a good reason though, I swear. When your family calls you up and begs you to go on an impromptu family vacation to SoCal and Disneyland, you drop everything and hop on a cross country flight. Right? So, yeah, this is where I've been.

If you know me, you know the beach is my happy place. After building a few sandcastles, lounging around, and squishing sand between my toes, I feel renewed and re-energized. Which is a good thing because I have a massive to-do list!

  • Make a baby quilt for my newest niece! (Yes, there has been a new, sweet addition to the family!)

  • Catch up on the 2015 New Quilt Bloggers Blog Hop. Check out the list of this week's bloggers here.

  • Work on some secret sewing for the end of September.

  • Write up a new Sunday Stash post because (lo and behold!) I actually bought some new fabric!

  • Sew up a gagillion curves for a Drunkard's Path quilt I've been working on.

  • Write up a tutorial for another new quilt I'm working on.

I also have a ton of other, non-pressing, sewing/quilting/blogging things to do. Priorities though, right? Oh yeah, there's also all my regular life things that need to get done... dentist appointment, grocery shopping, laundry, going to the DMV, washing the car...

I think I need another vacation. Lol!

  1. I'm catching up on the Blog Hop posts too... and I didn't even go to Disneyland. ;-) Best wishes at the DMV. I don't envy you there.

  2. It looks like you will be busy Sarah. I'm glad to have my post done. Now I can catch up to additional posts by the previous bloggers like yourself. Looking forward to your tutorial.

  3. Wondered where you were...oh the beach is my happy place too. I say the only white stuff I care to ever see again in my life is the white stuff between my toes at the beach. Ahh, just looking at your pic relaxes me. :-)

  4. It seems like we all feel the need and desire to catch up...summer is a busy time!
    Love your photo and hope your vacation was awesome.

  5. Hope you had a great time. There will always be lists of things to do. Guess I better go update my own for this week.
