February, almost gone!

I hate February.  Not that it isn’t a great month for some people, but it sucks for me.  I get really down.  Don’t know if it’s Valentine’s Day that bothers me, or it’s the anniversary of our beautiful Derek’s death, or just that it’s still winter.  All I know is that I hate it.  I feel almost immobilized in February, without the gumption to get up and move.

Today was better.  Since it’s almost the end of February, and I have promised to have 4 quilts done by Easter, I decided I’d better snap out of it and get back in the swing of things.  Got the top and bottom rows of Chase’s quilt done, just have to do the sides, get some backing, and it’s off to the quilter.  Now that I’m back in the sewing room, I feel a little more alive.

Tomorrow is Monday, a new day, and almost the end of February.  I feel better already.
