Very little sewing happening

I'm sure I'm not the only one that isn't a happy camper when there's no time to sew.  That is what my life has been like over the past 3 or 4 weeks.  Between a family vacation, the kids starting school and activities, my own Girl Scout troop meetings beginning for the year and my responsibilities as the area troop organizer, the only sewing I've been able to get in lately is some patches on Girl Scout vests.
My Christmas Tree wall hanging has been languishing on my frame.  I started the quilting on it in early August but my shoulders were aching then and so I took a break from it.  I haven't been able to get back to finish it since.  Hopefully very soon.
Not so patiently, I'm waiting for some pretty fabrics to arrive. I'm excited to get started remaking my Merry Jingle quilt and get the pattern written.  I've received lots of emails from quilters are waiting for it's release.  This is what the new version will be made with.
I think the new version will be gorgeous and can't wait to see it all put together.  Stay tuned for some sneak peaks.
The weather is starting to get cooler and that means more time indoors.  Keep your fingers crossed for me that it will also mean lots of time at the sewing machine is coming.

I know what you mean about getting frustrated when there is no time to sew. That is my happy time, just for me, and sometimes I just have to MAKE time for it.
That is some lovely quilting on the Christmas Tree quilt. Hopefully you will be able to get back to it soon. :)

Your quilting looks wonderful. I hope the shoulder is improved so you can do more of it as time allows.

I've been distracted with family and school too....but oh so glad to see you enjoying the Girl Scout stage as it goes by wayyyy too quick. (Although it is exhausting!)

Michelle I am wanting to ask about the quilt you did in 2014 The Rescue quilt. I have been trying to find the ambulance, ems fabric that you used. it is the one on top of the white fabric in your post. I was wondering if you had any left and wanted to sell it. I can not find it any where.
