The children being away is a strange and wonderful experience all in one. My house is very quiet (even with 3 dogs and 2 cats) and I'm enjoying it. I do have that constant feeling that I've "forgotten" something, but so far the stillness is welcome. Now ask me next week and I might have a different opinion.
I'm headed back to the sewing machine today and should have pictures later this week.
I'll keep you posted!
