Happy May Day!!!

Ok, no promises, but I’m just gonna ask if we can pick up where we left off, and catch up along the way.  Sound good? Great! 

Let’s see…where to begin? Since you last heard from me “for real.” ๐Ÿ˜‰ We have had the coldest, snowiest winter on record for our part of the country. Seriously! Remember my picture of our lane last fall? Here’s a reminder

For those of you who might be new to my blog, don’t expect to be wowed by any pictures.  I use my phone, it’s handy. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I do plan on upgrading this summer, tho and there by, obtaining a flash! Woot!!(it’s the little things…hehehe)
๏ปฟNow on with the story… Cold, snow, wet, winter…none of these words are ones that I am sewsowinlove with(just a hint).  Here is our lane one cold February day at about 2:30 in the afternoon…

And, yes, this picture is even worse, because this chick Did Not Get Out of the van to take the picture!  Yep, thru the windshield. ๐Ÿ˜‰ But, you get the idea.  One more then I’ll stop with the weather, cause that’s NOT why you’re reading this blog, Lol.

This is our driveway, that I slid down(oh the things a mother will do for her 13yo daughter and her sleepover plans), but could not get back up!  Had to use the neighbor’s next door and drive across.  I am seriously addicted to the sun, and this season of gray did nothing for my mood. :-/

Let’s see… I did finish the Brown Bag Quilt, but not only have I not been blogging, I haven’t even been reading…not that I don’t think of you often, I just haven’t been on the computer much. So I don’t even know what happened with the whole BBQ thing.  I know it got moved off StashManicure to it’s own blog…anybody wanna catch me up?  Oh, about my BBQ, all it needs is a label, and then I’ll post a pic, but as LittleGuy says, “It works good, mommy.”

I have monogrammed my little heart out with “team wear” for players, coaches, moms and sisters… here’s a cute one

(remember ~ phone camera)
And made jeans to match…

Yeah, she rocked it! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Pieced a quilt for Archer. Must make the sandwich and get it finished!

Did my first complete bedroom…professional pics to follow but here are a couple from the “process.”  Boy, you want to talk about a “learning experience.”  Whew….that’s all I’m gonna say. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Started using Twitter, so much fun! AND Pinterest, so many ideas!

Garden is non-existent, with the cold weather, then the rain… I was feeling awful about this, but with the fact that we’ve had hail twice in the last week, I’m okay with it going in late. ๐Ÿ™‚

Well, that’s just a few things that have been going on…we’ll catch up more later. ๐Ÿ™‚

Oh, one more thing…guess who came to see me on Easter? Nope, not the Easter Bunny…a Cuddle Bug!

I’m going to ask you to excuse my posture, I tend to melt when she’s around!
Happy May Day!!

New Meaning to An Old Phrase

How many times have you said, “What did you do last night?”  Or, how many times have you been asked?  Well, two weeks ago I was running on empty, downing that eggnog shake, because I had been up literally the entire night before!  Well, I take that back….I did go to bed at 5….in the MORNING!  What was I doing?  Well, sewing and playing Words, of course! 

Remember those Christmas dresses mentioned in an earlier post? Well you know about those promises. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Here they are…

And here they are on….

Merry Christmas!๏ปฟ
I had thought I was further along, than I was with these dresses.  Then a major distraction hit me head on, and THEN, Tall Guy had to make a trip to the ER for staples.  Get this…at basketball practice, he and a friend go up at the same time, and his friends tooth hits his arm.  No harm, no foul?  Not this time.  The tooth broke off in Tall Guys arm, to be found on the floor later, and, needless to say, sliced his arm like a knife.  Poor boys!  Tall Guy was in the ER that night, and Friend was in the dentist chair first thing the next morning.
AND  we were all at a basketball tournament by that afternoon. :p  I’m thinking a nap on the couch would have been oh, soooooo nice. ๐Ÿ™‚

Stash Report

Can you count fabric pulled?  ๐Ÿ˜‰  Nah, guess you can’t, but here’s what I’ve got to be cut next

Hopefully, it’ll be ready for a picture next week!
Now, on the the Stash Report…..
Fabric in:  0
Fabric in YTD: 12.75yds
Fabric out:  2.5yds
Fabric out YTD: 20.25yds
So, I can still say…Total Fabric out YTD:  7.5yds
At least I’m moving in the right direction(for now).  ๐Ÿ™‚
What have I been working on all week?  Mostly monogramming, that goes out the door before I even think about taking a picture, but I’ve also been working on some sweet little dresses, that will be finished tomorrow.  So, be sure and check back in the next couple of days to see, but for now here’s a peek… ๐Ÿ˜‰
 
Have a wonderful week, thanks for stopping by.  Y’all come back, now, ya hear…;)
