Today I have so much to do. You know when you have so much to do and you really can't get motivated because you don't really know where to start and so you procrastinate by sitting at the computer or busying yourself with things so not on your list?
I have a quilt that needs to be done by friday, a swap project to finish by Thursday so I can mail it before going out of town, 2 costumes to finish by tomorrow, a Southern Living at HOME party to submit by 1 pmI have to pack, and prepare my husband for 3 days alone with E! Oh me....

I'm Back!

Sorry for the little lull there. I have been pondering some projects and I haven't gotten much done except for some swap things I cannot yet post:) I will post a few other things later today.

I am also trying to prepare for a Southern Living at HOME party I am having on Sunday. I am a consultant and since I moved in April, I have only had one party. I am really nervous and on top of that my sister is hosting so half of the guests will be family. Sometimes that is a whole lot harder!

I hope everyone had a great week--- it is almost the weekend. :)

yarn extravaganza!!!

Wow! I went a little crazy at the thrift shop yesterday!!! I got all this and the bucket for less than $10.

No knitting needles though, I guess I have to go on a goose hunt!

Amandajean restarted me on knitting so I guess I went a little crazy! (no pun intended)

Also, I wonder how many of you have done this? I was so excited to share my blog with my friends so I emailed them with the link. I am making a baby quilt for one of those friends and of course I posted my progress on my blog-- I haven't given it to her yet but she saw it when she checked on my blog! oops! Hopefully lesson learned!!!

42 cards and a sweet little guy....

Amanda and I had another fun crafternoon yesterday... This time- card making. I was in desperate need of some as there are 36 birthdays in my family alone.

Amanda let me borrow her stamps when she had to leave for the evening so I made a total of 42.

My son loves to craft too and my heart overflowed when he made this for me!

A new friend...

We have a new addition to our family... Introducing "Max"!

He is our resident alien : ) The kids are fighting over him so I'll probably have to make a Maxie too!

I also made this little skirt for E. I thought it would look cute over jeans and pants!
Go to go- it's movie night at our house...

Use what you have: Skirt Bag

Well I didn't actually have this but it was only $1.70. I love shopping with a creative mind- it opens so many doors :)
I whipped it up in under 1/2 an hour! I was even able to put 2 pockets on the inside because it was really a skort! I love it!!!



Don't forget to sign up for Chara Michele's Fall Swap... By October 8th!

This was fun.. I needed to add a little sillines to my day! Here is our piano- we are lovin' it!

Funky Quilt progress

Sorry I haven't posted in a few days. I have been preparing my house for the piano and working on my funky quilt. The piano arrived today and I hope to finish my quilt top by the weekend...

Here are some pictures the little rows aren't sewn to the big rows yet.

By the way, that very spot in my livingroom now holds a Steinway Grand Piano! : )
