Up early and yet not sure I should be

I had a very busy day yesterday and it was all for others. Which I guess is ok once in a while. This morning I woke up and had to get to the sewing machine. Here is the progress on the HST blocks I have been working on a few at a time. This is 12 blocks and they are 12X12 so they will get there fast. I am down to adding some more for variety. I pulled out of my stash a large stack of fabrics that need to be added for one quilt or another. Some are not used in recent quilts so it will be a different look for what I want to get done before Christmas.
My son gave me some bad news the other day and I have been pretty upset over it. His Dog Bashful chewed almost every quilt I have given them. Two of them were from the last two Christmas's. I have three of them here and two more to be repaired. One of these quilts is so old I am not sure what I will do with it. It was a crazy quilt block my Mom and I made for him almost 30 years ago. But it is his and he wants it repaired. So to free up some more space in the sewing room I need to tackle the problem and get them done. They are all king sized so it will be a day when I can wrestle them under the needle on the machine.
School starts in the next town over today so please be aware of kids out in the morning walking to bus stops and to school. Can't be to careful with the little ones on their way to school. Chris

So sad to hear about your son's dog getting ahold of the quilts. At the same time, it's nice to hear that they mean enough to him that he wants them repaired.
