Some sewing, but, mostly me running after my kid

I have actually used my sewing machine this week. Yay!!! I have been seriously neglecting that thing since my husband left for a 5 week overseas trip. As with all his trips we are super active the first 10 days, and then I get so tired I don't want to leave the house. I was lucky that my parents were here for 10 days, and then they had to go back to NY, leaving me all alone out here in WA.

 I was happy when I had about 15 minutes to chain piece the quilt that I have been working on since forever ago, really November, but that might as well be forever ago. It all hasn't been my fault. Really it hasn't, these aren't excuses, even though that's what it feels like. We moved from NY to WA at the end of December, and the moving company said they would deliver by the middle of January. So, I decided to put my NEW Janome 8900 on the moving truck with all my pretty pretty fabric. Long story short, our stuff didn't arrive until the middle of February. 

Here is my progress so far on the quilt that I have been working on since November

It isn't much, but it's something. 

I'm using the Chevron & On pattern from the March/April 13 issue of Quilty. And the fabric is Rock 'n Romance by Pat Bravo. I was hoarding this fabric for a little while, because I loved it so much that I couldn't bring myself to cutting it. 

Hopefully I will blog a little more this week, but the little child is super active and loves to tease the puppy.
