15 Minute Challenge, April 16th

I received a text from the coach who's been giving Drama Teen private volleyball lessons at about 2:20 yesterday.  She asked to cancel DT's 3:30 lesson due to the explosions at the Boston Marathon, she had family participating. Thankfully, based on what's in the local paper,  her family had already finished and wasn't in the immediate area. That was the first I knew about the explosions.   My heart goes out to those who've lost loved ones and those who were injured.  

My sewing room is definitely a refuge when the events like what happened yesterday occur.  There is some peace to be found in keeping my hands and my head busy with something other than watching the news clips.  

Not a stellar week.  There was a lot going on at work last week, plus Drama Teen had a volleyball tournament over the weekend.  But in light of yesterday's events, I'll be grateful that my life upsets are small.  

How did you do last week in finding some time to sew, craft, or just be creative.  


  1. So glad to hear that the coach's family was ok!

    You've gotten quite a bit accomplished the past few weeks!

  2. Not every week can be a diamond Kate. I still think any progress should be celebrated !

  3. I read about it on someone's blog -- I rarely watch or listen to the news!

  4. I didn't hear the details until this morning. Unbelievable! My heart goes out to the victim's families.

    On the sewing front, I didn't touch the machine. I did, however, get a lot of fabric sorting done, and have even uncovered some UFO's that this little Janome might be able to work on.

  5. Pretty good week (especially compared to mine). Yesterday's events make me put things into perspective.

  6. Oh gosh - that is scary - I am glad they were okay!

  7. I just found your blog through Judy's UFO parade and I've been cracking up over the 'Drama Teen' term. I've had one of those too and how fitting of a name! Glad everyone is ok. Scary times!
