It suddenly dawned on me that if it’s almost the end of May, then logically that means it’s almost June, which means I need to get cranking on this baby quilt all of a sudden. The baby is due in mid June. I went from feeling like I had all the time in the world to wondering how I could’ve wasted so much time!
So I am back to jigsawing pieces of fabric together. It’s rainy and quiet and my family members are all cocooning in their rooms, so it gives a lot of time to think about Memorial Day as I sew.
There are a lot of veterans in my family, but we were lucky enough to not lose any during active duty. I’m so grateful for that, and I’m thinking a lot about people who weren’t so lucky today. It is a very grim situation that much of the country finds itself in this Memorial Day, which makes it hard for people who have to mourn alone. And there is so much to mourn right now.
I hope everybody is staying safe, and healthy, and finding people who they can connect with.
