Recovering

I had the chance to spend a few days with my family at my mom's cabin for Presidents' Day weekend.  Today we're recovering.  It's a five hour drive, and we only seem to make it up there once or twice a year.  Miss C and I made the trip with my sister and her husband.  We left the hubs home with the twins for this trip.  My other sister and her family flew in from TX and drove up with my mom.  It snowed most of the weekend, but it was nice to be detached from the internet for a few days.  I had 262 posts in my reader when I finally sat down to sort through it during naptime today.  I haven't made it very far.  I've spent most of my day cleaning and doing laundry around here.  It's amazing how much catch-up there is when you leave for just a few days.

There is about 4-5 feet of snow up there.  The kids loved it.  I, on the other hand, wasn't so fond of it after getting stuck in the van, but at least that was on the way out and my BIL was able to push us out.
 
Sunday afternoon the Miss C and her cousins spent 3+ hours playing with dominoes.  
 


I may or may not have taken both of my sewing machines with us.  I also may or may not have stayed up way too late sewing with my sister.  

I did get started on my newest project.  

Although, they started to drive me nuts.  I had to stop after a while.  These pinwheels will be 2.5" finished.

It was a good weekend.  Now back to that laundry.  I might get caught up by Friday.

  2. oh I'm driving myself crazy with tiny sewing lately too. I'm determined to whip out a quilt with really large blocks soon. Just so I can have some immediate gratification!

  6. You are so hard core to lug your machines up to the cabin. I am sure you all had a lot of fun together and, hopefully, no snowmobiling incidents this time :)

  8. Oooo Central Park! Love it! I'm really attracted to teeny tiny block quilts but have no patience to do it myself, living vicariously through my fav bloggers ;)

  10. Oh, those pinwheels are so sweet! They certainly make you think of spring, even if looking at the window doesn't.
