Catching Up

With the kids all in school for 2.5 hours (Owen is done by 11:15 am) I’ve been working into my own routine.  Mainly including a bike ride after taking them on their bikes to school. It’s so nice to plug in my headphones and push myself to keep going up, I have a nine mile route that has a good climb in a couple spots – a great challenge!  The picture above is our valley, and the view while out on my bike.

Owen had a little homework – drawing his family so his class can get to know him better.  I LOVE these first drawings!

I spent all of Sunday canning pears – my feet were aching, but I’m happy to have it done!

I’ve been using Frippery to make a sample for my Sewing Summit class “Precision Piecing” is an intro to piecing, with accurate cuts, and seams.  We are registering for classes today and I look forward to connecting with everyone in my class!

That’s all for now!  I hope you are having a great Tuesday ~

    Love your stuff for Sewing Summit – I wish I was going to be there, but couldn’t do it this year. But I’ll be there next year, good Lord willing and the creek don’t rise…..

    What a lovely view. Good girl for exercising. So many dont really understand the benefits. My children are now 27 and 24. I still have a lot of their artwork.

    Glorious view, and I echo the cheers for the artwork — still have my kids’ stuff and they are in their 20’s! Know what you mean about your feet…it’s grape jelly time here! :)

    Hi Amy,

    I’ve been reading your blog for some time now. You are very talented and you come across as a down-to-earth, likeable kind of person. :)

    I just completed my agenda for Sewing Summit and I am very excited that I was able to get into your class. I’m looking forward to meeting you next month.

    Good for you for exercising during that short break with Owen in school. I should do that, but I take my 2 hours and hopefully sew. But it is the only time I’m getting these days to do it. Unless, of course, I stay up really late.
