It wasn't until my friend Kellie (a famous quilt designer and blogger) said, "Oh, this is my friend Maura... but she doesn't have a blog" that I blinked. I have a blog, I thought.
Do I dare take the plunge into blogging about my quilting projects or reviewing books that I have read?
Is this another happy symptom of my girl's age and growing independence at age 5?
Just a few years ago, which can be measured with my children's lifetime...so...
A lifetime ago, I would NEVER have imagined having "free time" in which to quilt, read and post on the internet. Life was a brutal struggle of basic needs and daydreaming of sleep.
A lifetime ago, I didn't need a date night. I NEEDED someone to watch my kids so that I could take a nap.
Books? HA! Quilting? Can you do that instead of shower?
