what up

Fun things going on lately (within the last month or two):




I've been keeping this fabric on my dining table (not unusual as there is A LOT of fabric on my dining table) so that I can stare at and pet it whenever I want. I've just been dreaming of what
to do with it . . .


Speaking of fabric - I decided not to start anything new until I finish at least one of my seven unfinished quilts (all pretty much sitting on the dining table).


Charlie had a scratch next to his nose and wore this bandaid to church one day. Dan was horrified and lucky for him Charlie couldn't comfortably drink water with it on - so he took it off himself before anyone could see it. I thought it was cute. Glad I got a photo.

I finally finished painting the front door (the inside). It has been on my resolution list for the last two years (see here and here). First I tried black and hated it. So I painted it white, but it's a different white than all the trim in the room. So I'll just add painting all the trim in the living room to my list for this year.

A friend offered to have a jewelry open house for me at her house this weekend! So I've been working frantically making jewelry, advertising, and packaging enough for the show. I'm excited and nervous! I've never done a show that's just me and I hope at least someone shows up! (If you're in my area and you're interested, let me know and I'll let you know where I'll be.)


Luke and Charlie home together during the day. Sometimes they are great friends. I love it when the boys find things to do together.


We've been listening to music on Pandora lately. Because it's free. You can set your own chanel by typing in a band's name and they'll pick what music they think goes with that. I don't know what Dan put in last night, but it had WAY too much dance crap on it. Stuff that I hated in high school was playing and I was about to puke. Then Ice Ice Baby came on. Word to your mother. It was kind of fun. The boys were loving it. Especially Luke. He often requests "moosic" so he can dance.

I wish I lived closer so I could come and pet those fabrics whenever I wanted too. They are fantastic, especially all together like that!
Good luck with your show. I'm sure people will come from far and wide to admire your pretty jewelry.
Cheers~

I loved you talking about "petting" your fabric! After all, fabric is to own and not to use, in my opinion. It's too pretty to cut. I'll be at your show tomorrow and bringing a friend. Looking forward to it!

Oops, I meant Saturday, not tomorrow!

Leigh, I can't believe how big Luke is getting! I feel like he is still supposed to be the little baby! The thought of him talking seems so strange! Those boys are too funny.

Love the bandaid mustache. So funny that Dan was horrified.
