Life is busy, isn’t it? Life is so often about efficiency and whatever is most pressing. But there is so much in life that is precious to enjoy amongst all the work. With everything going on, I feel like I finish very little to share. Meals, laundry and dishes don’t make interesting blog posts. Nor does the exterior of our house that I am almost done painting.
But – I did finish a quilt project. It’s one that many of you have seen throughout the summer as I’ve shared my stitching techniques with you. It is now quilted, bound and shipped off on one of the many trunk shows of mine that travel to quilt shops. I finished it and had to take pictures on a day where the lighting was really poor, so I will have to wait for it to come back to have its pictures taken properly.
The pictures were so poor, that I only took a couple. You have all seen so many by now, that I didn’t feel too bad about not getting more. You can scroll down to my previous posts to see more detail shots.
The precious moments that I was referring to above – in addition to the moments of stitching that I sneak in – are the ones with these guys.
They are the unfinished projects that require unlimited amounts of work that will last the next 18 years, but bring joy in some of the most unexpected time – Like finding a field of beautiful flowers and going back to explore. I say “back” because we went home and put on some decent clothes to get a few pictures.
I’ve been traveling a lot for work lately and it always surprises me at the number of people that ask about the boys and ask to see more pictures of them. So here are a few more . . . .
Every photo shoot with Max starts with him pointing at me and yelling “You have poop on your head”. Then they laugh and laugh. I don’t remember how it got started – I think just something funny to get the kids to look at the photographer – but it seems it is something that Max will not forget. So I have many pictures of him pointing at the camera and laughing. Boys . . . They are full of it!
