Happy Valentines Day to all.
I don't know how to do all the fancy stuff that BJ does when she adds cards and things plus this morning is gym day and time is limited in the learning/searching center today. Just pretend you see a bunch of balloons and 15 dozen red roses...I'm…Continue
Oh BJ... What did you do? I've been trying so hard to forget this birthday and here I see my face on QWU....you naughty girl. Anyway.... I had a great day all in all. I started out at the gym trying to work off 20 years but alas it didn't work. I walked out of the center with the same rolls and wrinkles that I had when I went in. Then it was coffee at Starbucks with the gym rats and they proceeded to embarrass me further with a hat and some cameras. Lesson learned? Stay home on your…Continue
Wow, where has the time gone. It's been a busy few days around here. Not sure exactly why other than our SEAHAWKS are going to the Super Bowl.
Monday I worked on the second pass-a-round for our guild. We are making journal pages in mixed media and have instructions to "s--t-r-e-t-c-h" ourselves in the design process. We started by cutting 140 lb water color paper into 4" x 6" rectangles, added a journal with any instructions, and then passed it on. What a mess...."stretch"…Continue
What was I thinking? Last October I signed up for 2 pass arounds at our local Quilt Guild. The idea is to have a small, itty, bitty, teenzy, weenzy, "fun", thing to do once a month and then pass it on to the next sucker, I mean quilter. One is Crazy Ladies (should have been a red flag) and the other is Artsy Ladies. Below is this months Crazy Ladies. To start, we had to cut out a bust, (noticed I said 'A', so it's not "the…Continue
I mentioned in a previous post that I erased all my Christmas photos.....Well, Shannon came to the rescue. I found a site on line that let me down load a fix to unlock a formated card for a small fee. It was worth every penny. THANK YOU SHANNON.
Here is a Little Felt project I made for my new GS's nursery...Wool felt, Timtex and fusible web. I found a bold font on my computer, printed one letter per page and the rest was just preschool cutting. We put sticky velcro dots on the…Continue
What a busy holiday season. I feel like I've been gone more than I've been home....oh wait, I have. Since Thanksgiving I think I've counted 9 days/nights that I've actually been in my own bed. I am so far behind on things around here. I spent the better part of yesterday wiping down counters, cupboards and doing the floors. Then I ran down and picked up my serger... well I didn't really run, I drove. I had it serviced and also had the tech put on new blades and since my light was out,…Continue
Here's a photo of our Christmas.... damn, darn, there aren't any Christmas photos..., I accidently erased all my pictures from my camera. I've been in a funk today over it. Been so mad at myself I cant seem to concentrate on anything. Really? Luke's first Christmas? and I had to pull a stunt like that? My camera is kind of new to me and I touched the format button my mistake and poof, they went to that big black cloud somewhere out…Continue
Came home from our son's house the day after Christmas and woke up to this the following morning. Burr.... Everything is frozen. We don't have a blade of grass or a leaf anywhere that doesn't have this frozen stuff on it. I think our high yesterday was 27 degrees and it stayed gray and cloudy all day. Wish i could say I spent the day in my sewing room but alas, I didn't.…Continue
Yes, I'm done, or should I say I'm Done In? Between my serger and sewing machine I think I had smoke rolling out of my sewing room. Plus my bum is sore from sitting so much. I was bound and determined to get some things done for gifts this year and of course the rule says you have to put them off until the week before Christmas. Right? Haven't you heard of that rule too? Hubby would call me from his cell phone to my cell phone, from the family room mind you, just to make sure I was…Continue
Here's the photo of what turned out to me my Almost Dutch Hat. Sharon, I took your advise on the google translate BUT, when I clicked on the PDF pattern, it was in Dutch and I wasn't able to get it translated. You can't copy/paste from a PDF that I know of. Anyway, I was so determined to get this darn hat made that I spent the better part of a day using the "trial and error" system and finally came up with this little guy. This is hat number 6. It looked so easy? I didn't realize that…Continue
