Issues, issues and more issues

In the words of Loretta Lynn, "I'm not running my life. My life is running me." I am having issue after issue. First computer issues, then email issues, printer issues, husband issues, children fighting issues, pms issues, I can't find time to sew issues (which is really "the main issue.") The good news? I did manage to make a spring chick (pattern found on the Sew mama sew blog.) And I have to say it sure is cute. Just looking at it makes me smile. I do want to add that my spring chicken is not exactly the same as the pattern. My printer isn't working and I just freehand drew the patterns and low and behold he sure is a cute little thing! More good news? I found a chunk of time yesterday and am still quilting my big quilt (the stitch in the ditch is about half done). Even more good news? Report cards came home yesterday and my son made the A Honor Roll. Yeah! Now if I could just get him to be nice to his sister. I'm gonna go squeeze in a little quilting before it is time to start dinner (and so I will be much more pleasant to be around.)

From experience....your son will either be on the honor roll or be nice to his sister - better just pick one. My brothers were nice to honor roll :) My husband was on the honor roll...not nice to his sisters :)
Good luck with that!!!

He turned out great! I'm curious to see more of that basted beauty in the background too!
