Window Frost Backlit by Sunset Between Cloud Layers - 9/18/2014

Recap and Reset

I had a wonderful trip to visit with family and celebrate my niece’s first birthday. On my flight out just before landing, we descended through a cloud layer as the sun was setting. Being trapped between cloud layers and enjoying the sunset out my window was wonderful. I wish more people would look out the airline windows when they are flying…

It was a pleasure to get to spend a few days with my niece. I loved being able to play with her. Right now she loves rolling and throwing balls, being read to, and listening to me make car and truck noises as I push toy cars around. She doesn’t stick to any one activity for too long, but that is the life of a toddler, right?

After visiting with my brother, sister-in-law, and niece for a few days, I was also able to spend some time at home with my parents. My mother is also a quilter, and she has decided to participate in the Foothills Mystery Quilt created by Cheryl @ Meadow Mist Designs, too. I helped her get the September instructions (144 HSTs!!) put together on Monday. I am jealous that she got so much help! 🙂 If you follow me on IG, please forgive my double posting of my mother’s fabric pull and HSTs below.

My Bloglovin’ feed seems to be down at the moment, but that is OK. I am going to have to reset my expectations and start catching up with what everyone has been doing from here forward. I just don’t think I have the stamina to back read almost a week’s worth of blog posts.

And finally, in great news, I am happy to report that I have a new router and after a bit of fumbling around and some long distance tech support help from my brother this morning, everything is set up in my house! I finally have steady internet connections to all the computers and a good wifi signal. I hope this means I can be more active on IG to share some more about the good, bad, and ugly parts of my sewing projects.

    Beautiful cloud formations! The sunset makes it prettier.

    I’m putting off a project at the moment (Thimble Blossom’s Round and Round pattern) because it needs 224 HST, yikes! I’m going to have to pick a few movies to watch this weekend so I have something to do while I trim!

  7. Looks like you had a lovely holiday! Love those pics of your view through the plane window … so beautiful … and beautiful is exactly what your little niece is too – what a cutie 🙂

    Your niece is absolutely adorable!!! And the photos from the airplane – stunning!! How lucky for your mom to have you help her out! Her fabric choices are wonderful 🙂

    This is very random but, did you bring your sewing machine into the different dealer and were they able to help you?
