I'm A Little Afraid...

So my wife has returned to me from being gone for over 5 wks and I am elated! My heart is full once again... There is something wonderful about our relationship that I pray everyone either has or finds in their marriage, and it is our ability to pick up right where we left off. There is no awkwardness or pauses in conversation that seem a little too long or uncomfortable. We never skip a beat as they say. I must say that there is a new element in our marriage, one that I am afraid I will have to make room for..........BLOGGING........Yesterday I think my wife put the laptop on a solid surface and looked away from it for a grand total of about.............15 mins....... It has now become a joke, innocent and playful, she is "Blog-alicious" or is "My little Blogster". Blogging IS for Monica as Facebook WAS for me when she was gone, now coupled with the fantastic need to learn and do all things "Quilted" I am a little afraid I have lost a few hrs of my quality time with her to needle, thread, batting, and of course Blogging. I am consoled with the fact that it could be much much worse, like being a shopaholic, or a pathological liar. I am happy she has found something that captivates and encourages her creative spirit, but have true fear over the monetary costs for this hobby :-) Fortunately she still makes plenty of time to love on me as well as surf the Blog world and sew like the wind, so I am confident all will even out!!!

Welcome to my Hubby's world LOL just imagine how he feels when he wants to watch a movie with me and I tell him one of those: I have to post on 2 of my blogs, I have to catch up on commenting on other blogs, I have to finish some new things for my shop,and doing the day I have to take care of our child, or I'm going shopping with our child LOL
Never ending list of me + blogging + everything else :)

But he understands ;) kind of LOL

Monica you don't know what you started. I've always wanted to quilt and when you posted on here about yours I was inspired!

I purchased my fabric and am going to try and start soon!

I think all our husbands feel neglected when we scurry into the world of blogs...

I am so excited about this quilt. I'm going to post pictures of the fabric soon. I still need to get 2 more colors. But my Grandma was in town this past weekend and she was all "Let me buy you a sewing machine!" (I was just going to use her's whenever I was at her house) So I am really excited now that I can work on it at home. I really like the pattern of yours but I couldn't find it anywhere. I probably need to search for it online.
