July 20, 2004I don't know about anyone else out there, but life is pretty hectic these days! Does anyone else feel like it starts earlier every day and lasts longer every night? Sleep? I don't think I've had much of that since my 20's. That's BJC of course. Before job and before child. Sometimes I think I need a rechargeable battery. Between work, (which I have a great boss and the best co-workers I've ever had) home, (which desperately needs cleaning) and my daughter, (who is an absolute joy but has more of a social life than I do) things can get pretty crazy! Calgon take me away!
Oh well. On days like that I guess you just have to start counting blessings. When I laugh with my friends at work, I feel lucky to have a job and such good friends. When I'm relaxing at home, (even if it does need a little cleaning) I'm glad to just have a roof over my head. When I look into my daughters beautiful blue eyes or see her beautiful face as she sleeps, then I feel really blessed! I guess things aren't so bad after all!

Questions and Answers With Kaye
Q: How do you piece batting together to make a long strip? Do you zigzag it together flat or use a seam?
K: I think you should overlap and then zig zag. You could butt them together but the zig zag stitch may not catch both edges. It is best to overlap.
