I did exactly what I was trying to avoid. Biting off more than I can chew. I did it anyway. Gah!
Things were moving along pretty well, at the beginning of my Double Wedding Ring Quilt Along. I was also in the midst of prepping for Quilt Market, but things were getting done, and I had it all scheduled. (Schedules keep me moving forward. They're essential for my ADD brain.) Then it happened. I hit a wall. The disdainful hand/foot/mouth disease is completely to blame. Both of my daughters got it; my sweet Nora, then Little Miss Molly. I've been able to scrape by with the help of my mother-in-law, and get the bare minimum done, just to keep my head above water. Under the surface, I'm scrambling like mad.
Ilness came at the most inopportune time. Really, the worst time of the year. And my babies needed their mama, more than I needed to keep up on the quilt along. I thought I could keep it all going, when only Nora was sick. Once it spread to Molly, it just wasn't going to happen. I feel guilty. I knew you'd understand, though, and I wanted to make sure you knew that I will keep it going.
I'm leaving for Quilt Market, in Houston, bright an early in the morning. I'll update while I'm on the road, and we'll get back on track once I get home. I'll update the schedule soon.
Thank you all for staying by my side, and being understanding.
