ON the quilty front


I haven't gotten a lot done lately. I'm learning a new and complex job at work, I come home happy but exhausted. I just want to veg out. So, I haven't worked on my hour a day since last week. I had signed up for a quilt class last Sunday, and went to that. Excellent class, enjoyed it very much and, more importantly, learned some new things. I haven't finished the block yet, but will post a picture when I do.

I've been looking in on all your blogs and noticed that Jeanne (Spiral) posted then/now pictures of her sons. Oddly, over the weekend I had been looking through our pictures and came across one of my favorite pictures of my two younger sons. Looking at them grown, I remembered some of the pictures of them together as very young boys and asked DH to crop and superimpose the young picture over the grown picture. So, I will also share the then/now picture of two of my three. Caveat: while I love the 'now' picture, the son on the right hates it, doesn't like how he looks. He is currently searching his pictures for a photo to replace the 'awful' now picture. LOL

I can totally relate to what you are going through. I too am learning a new job at work--very different that anything I have done before. I have been exhausted for the last week when I get home and thimgs onthe quilty front have taken a back seat. By the way, very handsome looking boys you have there!

I think son #2 should be proud of how he looks in both pictures. :-) You have two very good looking young men.
Hope the new job is easier soon.

Jeanne's post made me think of my boys too - I may just have to hunt up photos of them and share!

Jeanne said...

Heehee -- your guys are just about as handsome as mine!

It sounds like you like your new job, and that's important. You can do other things when you have the job down pat, and it's taking less energy. Good looking boys, even the one on the right. =)

You have very handsome sons! The picture with the boys when they were young superimposed is fabulous -- what a great idea.
