It's all about balance....

...and I've fallen off the beam.
You may have noticed I have been MIA lately.
I am one of those people who live by a schedule and routine.
Ever wonder what the 4am in my blog address means?
 It means I'm an early riser and do most my sewing or blogging before my family even crawls out of bed. I have an exact routine laid out.... crawl out of bed, walk to the kitchen and hit the button to start the coffee (as part of a routine, I set my coffee up the night before), trip to the bathroom, toss a load of laundry in, put away the clean dishes drying from last night's dinner, get things set up for breakfast, grab my coffee and hit the sewing room. In between folding or hanging my load of laundry, I have about a hour and 1/2 to sew or blog before waking my family and starting my day.
Lately, I have been trying to figure out how to work a little (much needed) exercise into my day.
MY time is early in the morning and waking before 4am to exercise is out of the question.  Period.
 Since mid March my neighbor and I been walking every morning, but unfortunately, it has really cut into my sewing and blogging time.
  I have been able to squeeze in a little sewing, but then - no time to blog about it.
It's funny how a small change in routine can really throw your whole balance off - or mine anyway.
I'm working on it, so please be patient - I'm really not ignoring you.
In the meantime, here's my latest project.
I had a gal contact me via email after seeing my Christmas toilet paper on Pinterest and asked if I could make them for other occasions.
What a great idea!
Why hadn't I thought of that before?
She ordered two birthdays and one for graduation.
You can't tell from the picture but the graduation one is stitched in school colors, which were very dark green and gold.

Have a great Monday and see ya soon!
