Boy Toys

The boys got a new red toy to match the grey toy.

I don't think they are going to miss me at all. Even the grocery shopping went to bachelor mode this week. Mason said they were lining up strippers for their superbowl party next weekend. If you know my husband or son at all you would know how absurd that sounds, neither one of them even watch football.

Is it Just Me?

I am all for making my life easier with gadgets but how hard is it to put pins into a pin cushion and pull them out.
I can't believe someone actually thought it was so difficult they needed to make a dispenser for pins. Normally $59 but you can find them on sale for $29.

I have to pin every curved seam in the double wedding ring quilt and I never once was annoyed enough by my pin cushion that I thought I would need to go spend $29 on a gadget to replace it.

My craft room is almost all packed. No sewing for me for at least 60 days. Well no sewing sewing except the double wedding ring quilt. I have packed it in my suit case so I can sew while living in the hotel. While packing all my fabric and unfinished projects I came to the realization that I may be in the need of some serious hoarders therapy.

When is the last time you organized your sock drawer?

Nylons... really??... have I worn nylons in the last decade?

Yes there is a reason for the deep cleaning. Getting ready for movers. Yes, movers. I am heading north to Iowa in the near future. Yikes a little scary and nervous but I am also excited to see where this takes me.

More Progress

Slow going on the double wedding ring quilt. But look at those clean shelves in my bedroom closet.

Even found creepy doll of my mother in laws.

I put her in Mason's room before he came home from class yesterday.

Creepy doll is no longer in the house.

Got Bones?

The mini quilt is for a swapbot partner.
Hmm. Wonder if she is reading my blog?

The puppy is appliqued with minky for a little texture.

Long time

It has been a long time since I had the embroidery machine going.

I made a commitment to a swap and need to get it done and shipped by this weekend. My life is about to get turned upside down for a couple months. More on that soon.

I have been busy getting various stages of the double wedding ring quilt completed.

Put together three rings to make sue it is what I was expecting. Seriously thought about leaving it as a table runner and calling it done.

But then what would I do with all of these pieces.

And the ones waiting to be pressed.

And the pieces that almost look like completed rings.

And the stacks in the chair next to my sewing machine. All the little pieces including the connecting corners are sewn. Should start seeing progress happen more quickly now. - Posted using BlogPress from my iPhone
