monogamming

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.” πŸ˜‰ 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. πŸ˜‰ I do plan on upgrading this summer, tho and there by, obtaining a flash! Woot!!(it’s the little things…hehehe)
ο»ΏNow 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. πŸ˜‰ 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! πŸ˜‰

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. πŸ˜‰

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. πŸ™‚

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

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!!

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. πŸ˜‰  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. πŸ™‚

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. πŸ˜‰

Oh, my goodness!!!! Did I just show you my naked feet?  I MUST be desperate for material!!!!
ο»ΏThursday 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…
ο»ΏNothing In…Nothing out!
(but quite a bit has been ordered…hehehe)
ο»Ώ
Until next week….oh, it may be bad…  :-/
