Spent the weekend...

doing everything..
And loved every minute of it. :) One thing I did do, which is so much fun, is go blog surfing.  I still feel like a blog newbie, and it's so much fun to look at everyone's blogs, and photos.  All of you are so talented!  I wish I had as much talent as some of you have in your pinky. :)  

Still haven't cut into this:
but still DYING to!  Our spare room/office/(sewing room?) is in the middle of getting painted. I painted one wall yesterday.  My husband is out of town for work, so he will be surprised! ;) Spent this evening doing a "paint chip art" project, with all of the paint chips that my son has collected EVERY time we go to LOWE'S to look at paint colors. Can't show a photo now, though, b/c he has hijacked my phone which has the pic in it, and is running around taking pics with it.

Have had fun playing with blog buttons and badges and sprucing up my blog.  That's always fun! So many cute things out there.  It's a whole new colorful world for me. :)  Oh, does anyone know how long it takes for the LinkWithin feature to actually post things from your blog, instead of random advertisements at the bottom of each post?  If it doesn't kick in soon, I think I'll remove it.. midget tossing isn't really something I want to promote.  ??? That was really one of the things at the bottom of a previous post. It might be at this one too. If so, forgive me.  ?

Have been thinking about doing One Flower Wednesday.. got this today at JoAnn's..

along with..

They didn't have a couple of the books I was interested in.. but I found this one that caught my eye, b/c I have a few novelty fabrics that I've collected for my son.

Speaking of.. time to get off of here and put him to bed.  If you were in the path of Irene, and you are reading this safely, then my prayers were answered. :)

Have a great week!

Good to meet you Kelli :) Yes, the blog world is a great one - so much creativity out there! Your blog looks bright and colorful - I like it! Don't know anything about LinkWithin - I'm still learning too.

Hi Kelli, I hope you enjoyed your treck round blog land, I am hoping for sometime very soon where I can spend it just leisurely strolling round other blogs, maybe when the girls are back at school in a weeks time.

Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and for becoming my newest follower, it is lovely to meet you!

Have a great week!

Hi Kellie, You have such a fabulous blog. I'm going to do my best to send as many readers over as I can. Why not link into Tuesday Treasures one day then I can put your blog on my sidebar and I'm sure fellow dog lovers will pop over + the quilters.

Just love popping into great blogs for a visit...

I did pop over from Tuesday Treasures. Melody is so sweet. I've been on a computer enforced blog break (darn technology) but am trying to make a comeback. In the meanwhile I have been outside enjoying summer with my Newfies. (Newf links are in a separate category on my blog.)
I am jealous that your son is better at using a phone camera than I am!
So much to see here. Looks like you had a very full weekend.

How old is your little guy...sounds about as ornery as mine. My youngest is 20 months...but my oldest is 21 years.

I enjoy blog surfing too. I try to put a time limit on it though because I start looking and before I know it, I've been at the computer for 3 hours and that cuts into my sewing time!!!

I just bought Pat Sloan's book too. I haven't tried anything out of it yet but plan to soon. I have alot of novelty fabrics and she had some cute ideas in this one.

I just found your blog this morning. You left a comment on my blog. I appreciate that. I love that you are a hand quilter. I am too but I quilt with the machine too. It just depends on the quilt. I want to see my quilts finished and hand quilting goes a little too slow for me sometimes. Anyway, I love your blog and I'll be back soon.
