Miss me?

Where did time go??? I can say it sure was NOT spend in the sewing room......more like it was spend on baseball fields at endless children's ball games. And the season has just started!!

But I have managed to get a few things done.......I started cutting out more wool flowers. I'm on the yellows now.

And I made some house blocks for Bumble Beans. She is doing a charity quilt project......I am going to mail off my blocks and some extra fabric tommorrow.

I got a bag of scraps from my friend Lisa at the recent guild retreat.

That messy pile became........THESE!!

I like the pink houses the best......

I finally finished up another Paintstik project too. This nifty totebag/purse uses lots of scraps! I had alot of fun playing with the grommet hole maker. Gonna have to make something else with that thing!

Time to head off to bed. I decided today to do as much cooking as possible for the week ahead. I ended up making: a turkey breast, tacos, BBQ, pumpkin muffins, pea soup, and browned some extra meat. Hopefully this will make the nights go smoother. With baseball games four nights a week at 6pm, its been hard to get dinner on the table.

For the rest of the week I am going to be stitching away on Candy Cane Lane!!! I have four blocks done and it looks so cool!!! With any luck, I should have most of the top done by the next class on Sunday. Check it out at my Candy Cane Christmas blog.

Have a good start to your week!!

Hi Kathy, You sure sound organized, prepping all that food for the week ahead........wonderful to hear, in these days of women who never cook for their families at all. Fast food 6 days a week....what are they thinking? I love your bag, too. Where could I find the pattern? Michele
