I've been a bad blogger for the last couple of weeks and I apologize. I haven't done much worth blogging about - I'm slowly seaming knitted miters that I'm sick of seeing, so I'm sure you are too. I've been sewing down the binding of Gunnar's quilt but I can't post it until it's done. But, progress is being made. Hang with me, if you will, and the pretties will come.
Many things have been going on in the background. Graduations are approaching - both Jeff from law school in 4 weeks and Lindsay from high school in 7 weeks. Lindsay's college decision is looming. Lindsay's college fund is being held hostage by her father who can't understand why she'd want to go to Washington D.C. for school because it's Not. In. California. and that is incomprehensible to him. But this is not the place for that.
I've done a lot of thinking about things I want to do. Playing with fabric. Even cutting things out. Pulling out yarn. And then I go take a nap. I'm tired. Why am I so tired, you ask? Well, because I've been working on a very small but monumental project in secret.
Meet Quattro. We don't know yet if Quattro is a boy or a girl. We just know that we're really excited about him/her. And Jeff would add that we're happy it's only Quattro and not Cinque as well. This project has been taking priority over most others, as I'm sure you understand. Soon however, the energy will return. We will return to our regularly scheduled daily blogging. Oh, and Annika would like you to know that she "doesn't care if it's a boy or a girl. I just want to be a big sister." Quite the big sister she will be.
