Where has the time gone? It seems like the kids just got out of school for summer vacation they are back and our schedules are exploding! If you don’t have kids you are probably finding that your fall schedule is filling up with bazars, committees, club meetings, or the ever-dreaded fall house cleaning. Whatever your schedule throws at you, make sure to take time to do what you love to do. Our lives need balance so scheduling time for yourself will definitely help maintain your sanity! Happy quilting!
