Friday Night Sew In?


Between the busyness of the end of the school year, and tee ball practices and games, and doing online CE's to renew my RN license..

And a house guest coming to stay last night, which meant lots of tidying up around the house, and doing some laundry, and making sure there were clean towels and sheets for the guest room..

And tripping over and picking up toys so said house guest wouldn't trip and sustain an injury..

I COMPLETELY FORGOT ABOUT Friday Night Sew-In!!!!  :(

Such is the story of life lately.. just trying to keep up.  Had a project all lined up to work on too. *sniff*  Soon I will get back to my sewing machine.  I've hardly had time to blog read lately, either.. I miss it!

I will be back soon with some projects, I promise!  In the meantime, hope everyone is having a wonderful May!

I leave you with a photo of my favorite boy.. where he can be found every Tues. afternoon getting stronger and stronger (he grew 3 inches and gained 7 pounds this school year)..

My favorite dog, who tried to jump on and slime our house guest (who wasn't such a "dog person" to start with) with drool, as a welcoming gesture..

And a picture of a little prize I recently ordered myself from Green Fairy Quilts.  They are having a 40% off FQ Bundle sale!! How could I resist?  I've been drooling over the Fly A Kite line since it came out!

So glad I waited until I could get it for 40% off.  That's a big savings!  Looking forward to the mail this next week.

Am I the only one who flunked FNSI?  *sigh*

Little Sewing & Lots'o'Life

It's been a busy week and a half, and I've missed reading everyone's blog posts--I've barely been able to keep up with the May for Me Bingo words, but things are getting back into a routine now.

The only sewing thing I've finished lately is this Bee Block #5..

This one didn't go together without its problems, though..
See that?  This one wasn't as easy as removing a whole strip and flipping it around.  It was just this little square.. so some dissecting was required.
And then I ran over a pin, which my machine decided to suck all the way down into the bobbin case.  Half of it was still in my fabric on top, and the other end was bent and sticking out the bobbin area, requiring a minor outpatient procedure with the needle-nose pliers.  While trying to bend the pin to get it out, it finally broke in half and I was able to get both pieces out. UGH. Does this happen to other people?   

In other news, in the last week and a half:

  • A. is in love with his blah blah pillow case.  So angelic when they're sleeping. Though he seems to be entering a new stage where he doesn't prefer to be so angelic when he's awake. lol  Definitely getting more independent. 

  • Tee Ball has started--first practice.. this is his first time to play.

  • First game..

(having an after game snack with one of his friends, who's on the same team)

  • During "W" week at preschool, the teacher asked my hub to come in and talk about wings, and airplanes in general.  He set up a mock cockpit for the kids, and gave a little talk.  It was fun.  The kids' five year old questions were so cute and funny.  "Mr. Chris, what if the wings fall off the plane?"  "Mr. Chris, what if the compass on the plane breaks and you forgot to bring one with you?"

  • Oh, and it was our anniversary last weekend, too, so we celebrated in San Francisco, dinner and a show.  We saw comedian Jim Gaffigan perform.

  • Oh, and my parents flew in last Saturday to stay for two weeks. As I type, there is some kind of "paper airplane championship" happening downstairs in the living room.  
I'd better run!!  It's been a busy few days, but hopefully I'll get some time to blog surf later. Happy Weekend!! :)
