Time is Flying (and a Sewing Project)

We had a great weekend visit for my grandson's fourth birthday.  I can't believe how fast time is flying.  It was a whirlwind weekend. The trip up took us over 6 1/2 hours.  Somehow we made it back in 5 -- thanks to less traffic on I95.

Then Monday I worked at my husband's office.  I pulled a 14 1/2 hour day.
We left in pouring rain and the drive home went along at 40 mph at times.

I went back to sleep after my husband left this morning, but since then I've managed to get my chores finished in record time.

I've got to finish her Minnie Mouse and get a package out to her by the beginning of next week.
The pattern, fabric, and all notions were from my copious stash.
