This week was not very progressive in the sewing department
Monday I had the tires put on the car FOUR of them OUCH!
Tuesday we had the air conditioner put in
Wednesday we went back and forth looking online for replacement lights for bedroom- found some we liked but electrician never called back- was wacky Wed at local market so got a ton of chicken legs with thighs attached for .49 lb! GO ME
Thursday caught up on laundry and ironing
went to local Lowes and got two sconce lights for bedroom also went to WalMart but they had none so what is a gal to do? I got ONE SKEIN of a new yarn called scrubby have you seen it? OH MY I think I will be knitting scrubby kitchen cloths in all colors to make some sets (what? I couldnt go into the store and get NOTHING right???? LOL)
Today is Friday and I will help my boss make a 40th anniversary basket. I told her 40th is RUBY so she should make a red basket. red licorice, red lantern, red bull, gift card to RUBY Tuesday etc. She is bringing it in to work so I can see it and help her work on the bow for the top. I am good at bows and baskets like that. her sister is celebrating her 40th so I wrote a poem to put on it as well.
so there is my week. Did you see any sewing involved? me either aside for sewing a couple baby hats and cutting out pillowcases I havent really touched fabric. (soon my pretties, soon)
and OH MY did Jenny send any of you her catalog? Yeah I was on the list (I should be with all the money I have spent with her LOL) SHE IS A BAD WOMAN.............
I WANT TO MAKE ONE OF EVERYTHING IN THE DARN CATALOG............evil woman I say
so I am looking at Fall inspiration and trying to keep some kind of momentum going. of course the computer is not fixed which irritates me to no end. I cant add new pics which stinks. and this laptop is slower than molasses uphill in January.
Heres to hoping that I can sew this weekend a little and get my mojo on again. I am having withdrawals BIG TIME..............
the ac is working so Phoebe is sleeping with Dunkins quilt
hey a gal needs to put Dunkin in his place. he is
always stealing everything of hers LOL
and these have been opened and mixed into the 5
inch charm basket so I can use them up
fabrics have been pulled for accent bands
and cuffs of the pillowcases I have cut out
I made like kits and rolled them up
and put into plastic zip bags. that way the
pieces dont get used somewhere else in a
I cut out about 8 cases, some singles and some
a set of two
hoping my brothers like the camouflage
fabric and the deer fabric and the wolf I picked
I wanted bears but NOT teddy bears LOL
I will make up at least 3 sets for their new hunting cabin in Maine
they have already put dibs on some strawberry rhubarb jam
so that is a good thing.
gotta get going in that department as well.
a womans work is NEVER done right?
