What have I Been Up To?
A Little Bit of Everything!
This is my latest Wonky House #8...4 more to GO! Have to be in the mail to Jane of Jane's Fabrics by March 1st!!
the little "puddles"
I've dipped my toes in since Sunday
Babysitting Grandson Scott
Poor Baby! Scott has Conjunctivitis (Pink Eye), sinus infection, fluid behind the ear-drum,
PLUS...He decided to play BARBER this week when he found sharp scissors at HIS house (not mine!) and proceeded to cut the front of his hair..to the scalp! His Daddy tried to buzz his head in an effort to "blend in" the cut portion but now Scott just looks like a little sore-eyed bullfrog!
HEMMING #1'S NEW PANTS..YUCK!! HATE TO HEM!
However, I did learn how to what I THINK is called "serging"? Almost like zig-zag but covers a raw edge? I'm learning so much and teaching myself via You-Tube and Blogging tutorials.
Baking TWO Cream Cheese Pound Cakes
One for us..One for Friend's who lost their 26 yr. old son to Cancer
Handwritten and Time Worn Recipe
My chickens think it's Spring and started laying!
#1 cracks fresh Pecans for my Baking
I'm attempting to organize some areas in my sewing cave. If it doesn't move, I'm putting a Label on it!
or how about some storage drawers
I am replacing handwritten labels with nice label maker labels.
I'm brushing up on my Embroidery skills so when I found this remnant at a local fabric shop I bought it with the idea that I could practice my embroidery stitches and ultimately use the remnant as a Quilt Center. I keep it in my purse to work on when I find myself waiting somewhere.
I was even able to work on it last night in my class
Class?? Yep, Remember that little MATTER CONCERNING a speeding ticket last month? My sentence was a hefty little fine and a FOUR HOUR DEFENSIVE DRIVING CLASS FROM 5:30-9:30.
I Am an Official Defensive Driver
I'm close to finishing the hand quilting of this lap size quilt. The top was sent to me for "Quilts for Hugs" by one of my loyal followers and I've forgotten which kind person that was. Please tell me if you recognize this quilt top as being one of your creations.
So there you have it.........the Highlights of my week.
Oh, I almost Forgot!
As if I needed ANOTHER reason to Waste Time
I have discovered...along with PINTEREST
WORDS WITH FRIENDS
OH MY STARS
I LOVE IT
Retirement is Wonderful!
