Michele at Nastolgic Cafe posted about these cute headbands. For fear I will lose the link I thought I had better post here.

This is the one Michele made. Love the white. I just cleaned out our closet a couple weekends ago. What a great way to recycle some of the tshirts before David turns them into rags.

I am still working on my sewing list for the weekend. Heat index is to top 110 degrees by tomorrow. Good to plan on being indoors.

Cars 2 topped the box office this weekend.
Glad I could be a part of the statistics.
And Bad Teacher took the #2 spot. I was part of that statistic also.

I normally don't like to go to movie theaters for many reasons but the teenager convinced me both days. I enjoyed Cars 2 much more than Bad Teacher. Needless to say another unproductive weekend considering the amount of time I spent at the theater.

Good news is a have a three day weekend coming up. Working on my list now.

I thought you might get a kick out of this photo. Back in November I sewed tunics for a senior citizen dance group.
And here are a few of them dancing in the tunics.

My Weekend

My weekend consisted in sitting in my new swing...
Watching this one watch birds... 
... and watching the tomatoes grow. Funny thing, I was perfectly content to do both.

I don't usually share anything about my work... let's just say it is beyond stressful right now.

Twins Playhouse Done

Glad to finally pack this to deliver to the twins.

It was the chalk board that was the final obstacle to tackle. Took four attempts to find a solution. Finally used a piece of cardstock and used the chalk board spray paint on it.
David will deliver it to their Dad in the morning. No more play houses for a little while for me.

We had a few extra bags of trash from the long holiday weekend. Wednesday morning I took them to the curb and then took the big rolling cart down the hill. Unfortunately my shoes were wet from walking in the grass. I slipped and fell. Who knew trash was so hazardous. After a trip to the doctors office later in the day I did have good news. I did not break either ankle. But both ankles were sprained, the achillies tendon on my left foot did not detach but is torn. 
Obviously the left one a bit more damaged than the right. The swelling has actually gone down quite alot, still not running any races yet. Trash is now the teenage boys job.
