Life on the Home Front: Week 7 Completed

We completed our seventh week at home on Thursday night. I'm used to it now. It's going to be harder figuring out how to go back to a more fast-paced life.

Monday found me back at Blooms by Wildwood doing my thing with flowers. Aren't the tulips amazing?!

 I needed to make 40 bouquets this week so I went back on Tuesday to finish.

We celebrated Laura's birthday on Sunday but Monday was her actual birthday and she was delighted to receive this squish mallow turned hoodie from friends!

I had a fun conversation with a friend about dolls and the joys of sewing. I pulled out the fox I knitted one of the kids and the tiny Holly Hobby that is a replica of the huge one I had as a girl.

This time at home has been a wonderful chance to empty my mending basket, use up fabric, make a few masks, etc. Here's a collection of fabric I pulled out to make a little boy mask.

A random photo of the living room this week. I'm taking so few pictures -- mostly because the scenery doesn't change.

Some of you wanted to know where Rachel was -- she is sheltering in the town where her university is located. Exam week ahead. Go Rachel!!!! Pass those exams!

 Some of my vintage sheets which I use for tablecloths or fabric. They make me happy.

I try to paint at least 3-4 days a week (of course not the whole day, but at some point during that day). This week I was working on a rendition of the heather garden in Manhattan.

A pretty photo that popped out of my camera on Friday.

And now it's the weekend and we have a HOT day. I'll let you know what we are up to next week!

I have that insect fabric as well from my days of baby quilt making. I've always loved it!
I agree, it's going to be hard to go back to all the running around. I love this extra time with my kids at home.
