Stash Report…..week 2

Where has this week gone?  I’ll tell you where!  Well……on second thought, this blog is rated G… :-/ Lol!

Ok, let’s try again.  What has been accomplished this week….that’s better. 😉  We started back to school…Joy of Joys!!! Hehehe…  Monday and Tuesday afternoons were spent with a person on my list of favs! My sweet Auntie, she is from Florida, yes, just like my Honey.  My Daddy’s oldest sister, and the person in the world who is most like my Grandma…Love.  We laughed, told stories and cried…all good. 🙂

Wednesday choir practice started back.  Boy, could I tell we had had a few weeks off!!  Pipes were a little rough.

Thursday morning went and had my toes done with Glory and J’s girl.  Hehehe I do have pics of that!  Wanna see?
My wonderful next door(read across the field) neighbor, Glory… She is just as feisty as she is sweet…hope to grow up to be just like her!

 And….guess what I saved this pic under?  Hobbit feet….because that’s what those spacers make your feet look like.  The color?  I did not choose it…I’m more of a pink kinda girl, Glory made me!  Remember, she’s the feisty one. 😉

Oh, my goodness!!!! Did I just show you my naked feet?  I MUST be desperate for material!!!!
Thursday night we had three basketball games….
Friday was a goodbye to a Dear Man, Dr. Calvin Bradford.  You will be missed, your boys did a great job! 
Saturday morning I met with a new client, a new interior decorator, Julie of Decor Flare.  It was a great meeting and I got to say the words, “You better just order a whole bolt.”  Woooooooohoooooooo!!!!! DO YOU KNOW HOW GOOD THAT FELT?!?!?!?  Then I was on my way to 7, yes, I said SEVEN, hours of basketball…..the good news? We won!!  The bad news….no sewing.  Although I did get some monogramming done.  Does that count?
So, after ALL my EXCUSES…..my stash report….Let’s just keep it simple…
Nothing In…Nothing out!
(but quite a bit has been ordered…hehehe)

Until next week….oh, it may be bad…  :-/

Lists…Do I have to?

Well, from the title, you can see that my enthusiasm is waning as my afternoon coffee wears off.  Lists, with the new year comes lists…. And, I guess it’s a good thing, because if you don’t have a goal, you’ve got nothing to shoot for.  Believe me, in this household, basketball and archery analogies run rampant; I’ll spare you. 😉  For now I have three concerning sewing goals for the year: UFO’s (defined as anything started before January 1, 2011, and, of course, not finished), projects I’d like to start and finish ;)(it’s ok, you can giggle or laugh here, if you want…I am), and goals for my business.

Business
Well, I’m not sure where to even start.  Will say that I’m in the middle of setting up an Etsy shop.  Trying to decide if I should change my name(the business name, Lol :-/).  Honestly, I’m at a crossroads, and at a loss…
Will be adding a whole new line of items, hopefully by the end of the week. 🙂 Very excited about that!  I guess you’ll know the shop is open when you see it in the sidebar. 😉 

I know this post kind of stinks, doesn’t it?  I’m going to leave it up tho, because it will make my other posts look sooooooooooo much better! Lol!

We need at least one picture, don’t we…how about my Avatar for Etsy?  Wanna see?

And for a funny one… How about the Avatar my sweet Sister in Love made for me…hehehe get ready to laugh…

At the beach, complete with books and drink! 😉

What’s a Girl to Do?

Okay, I’ve got an event coming up. Needed something to wear. UUhhhgggg….that means shopping. Unless it’s fabric, I want no part of it!! Sights like this…

and this….
Kind of make my head spin, and my stomach queasy.  BUT!  I must find something to wear. 🙁  AND don’t even let me think I might have to try on something in a store!  Hate it with a passion.  I know, definitely not typical.  So called up my Kansas…wanna see her…hehehe…she’s gonna kill me…
Thanks to Bobby D for the photo!

And we set up a time to “get er done.”  When we met that morning, she told me what she thought of my explanation of wanting to go early in the day and “get it over with.” How she had thought to herself…”this is jan…”   Lol!  
We met in the parking lot at 9:15, it was cold, and she laughed when she saw I had worn my flip flops.  I told her I had worn flips, low rise jeans and a shirt that would slip over my head, for easy access…  I knew she would have me trying on more than I even wanted to think about. :p 
Here she is arranging things in order for me to try on….a friend, indeed
The dress in front…lol, can you say, “Austin Powers”
Obviously, there was something I liked, because I ended up with TWO pictures of it!  Yeah, if you’re looking to buy a jacket, make it leather, if you can. ;))

Do you see this RACK of clothes?!?  I tried on the WHOLE thing!  My mother would never believe it!
Did love the red ruffles, by the way… 😉  Might have to go back and get that AND the leather! 😀
Look at these two!  Where does she think I’m going???  And, yes, I tried them on…yeah, I’m laughing, even now. hehehehe

And the winner is….
Grey skirt, black velvet jacket, and that blouse…I don’t even know what to call it, BUT I do know that I don’t have to worry about jewelry!  *bonus*
Whew….after all that…we headed to Panara’s for hot chocolate(K), coffee(me) and scones…  AND can I just say…. I was home in time to feed my kids lunch!
Thanks, K! oxoxoxo
