Happy Valentine's Day!

Hello all, 
I am sorry for my long absence. The end of last year threw me some curve balls that I never saw coming, nor did I know how they would end. So this Valentine's day has a brand new meaning this year.

My husband got a call in October from a Co-worker in DC that they needed him to assist with a maternity leave gap in their work. Well off to DC he went, leaving me working 40 hours a week and caring for our lovely girls all by myself. My time and especially sewing time went out the window. We he worked up in DC weekly for 3 months.

Then unexpectedly he was offered a Job with this new team and we were uncertain that we might have to move, well thankfully we do not.

So on top of the holidays being my absolute craziest time of the year for work...it was for my family as well with Daddy gone.

I did somehow get my Charming stars quilt made for my Mother-in-Law for Christmas, PJs made for my cousins children and my Swoon quilt cut for my Sister-in-Law.

I am thankful to be back sewing as it is a creative love in my life. I am also truly thankful and blessed to have my husband back home with a new job that he gets to work for home.

So I am thankful this Valentine's day to have a hubby who lets me be creative, who misses me when he is gone, who helps me with chores around the house, and doesn't mind telling me how beautiful I am (even though I tell him I am not!) I am thankful that my girls love their daddy, and that he is home!

I hope that this Valentine's Day you have been blessed by multiple loves in your life and that we all get to be creative...I also promise not to be so silent for so long.

Much Love!


  1. Oh Angie, I had no idea you were going through all that! wow. You sound so happy now, and I am so happy your hubby is home with you!! P.S. I am not at Quilting Adventures anymore. :o( I had to leave because school takes up so much of my time.

    1. Amy, I didn't tell many people what was going on because it was all happening and changing so fast that I could not keep up with it myself. I am happy that he is home, and happy to be able to feel "normal". I have not been to QA in months because of all this, and I now drive to Varina everyday to get my girls from the babysitter and the drive home to Chesterfield. My life has been busy. I miss seeing you, and I am glad to know that you are doing so well with school! I have enjoyed watching you cross-stitch and it makes me want to start it back up again. We should definitely try to plan a girls day to sew and maybe grab lunch when you get some time :-)
