WhiteBoard Wednesday


I cannot believe this is my final WhiteBoard Wednesday for August! There is a VERY SLIM chance I will get the final 2 items done but instead I will probably just complete the one. I just don’t have the energy to work on the borders for the Row by Row – not the physical energy but instead the brain energy. Just not there!!!

Here is my WhiteBoard right now:

2013-08-28 20.43.21

You can see I have added another item in the last two weeks – Kaylah’s curtains. I had to cut some bits off her bedroom curtains so as to make them fit her dorm room windows.

I have gotten quite a bit done in the last two weeks. I have spent so much time in my sewing room. I will call it HIDING. Hiding from the world. Hiding from my emotions. Hiding from my husband. Hiding from my daughter (before she left). Hiding from EVERYTHING!!!

I honestly didn’t think I would have a difficult time with her leaving! I don’t think I would call it Empty Nest Syndrome because the house being empty doesn’t bother me. She has been gone about a week and I think the funk has just about lifted. I just needed some adjusting time. BUT phew those first few days after she left and the few days leading up to it…..UGH! Did they SUCK!!!!

Anyway….enough on that! It is passing and I was quite productive! I will have all of my squares cut for the D9P cut before the end of August and that is for 4 twin beds!!! Let me just say that is a great deal of 4.5″ squares!!!

I have certainly missed posting but was in no way of the mental capacity to put words into a sentence, let alone sentences into a post!

I will be back soon to show you some recent projects – well those I remembered to photograph!

  1. Right there with you on the suckage. Missing my boy like crazy!

    You have made some dent in your list this month. WTG!

  2. Mine came back! I think that is not so good!

    Be glad if she finds those wings and flies! In the meantime throw yourself into all those lovely projects of yours!

  3. I didn’t know you were having a hard time transitioning! Anything like this is difficult, but you’ll see she’s in a great place, growing like mad mentally/socially and in confidence and all will be well. It will be Ok….I promise 🙂

    I was just searching your blog for your row by row quilt. Did you ever post about it before? I’d love to see it!

  4. Oh I come over and hide with you! All kids in school now and I feel a bit lost. I am waiting on lots of emails and stuff so hiding is just perfect ….

  5. Welcome back to the real world!

    When I was 16 I went by myself to Canada for a year as a high school exchange student. When asked about whether she’d really miss me (as an only child) my mother brightly said, ‘No, not at all!’ I don’t think she did either lol

  6. Aw sweetie! Keep reminding yourself she’ll be fine and having a ball…. x

  7. Maybe I will miss my kids when they go, but right now, I can’t imagine anything better!!!
    Enjoy the peace, she’ll be back with noise and washing and all that stuff soon enough xxx

  8. You will find when she returns that you are closer than ever and she will have matured too. You sure did get a lot done while you were hiding.
