My new addiction

I must have a highly addictive personality.
I seem to get hooked on things
and then take them to the extreme. I could have just
made 2 dresses, one for each of my girls...
but this is what i ended up with.

I'm tired...

Welcome to the family!

Two new FUZZY pez!
I don't like Chocolate or Dr. Pepper, so this must be
my guilty pleasure. Sure better on the hips.

Happy Friday!

Loose Ends.

This must be the week of old projects. I feel like
tying up all the loose ends.(although i'm not disillusioned
enough to think that they ever stop.) But i'll keep at it!

This project was inspired by a fuzzy magazine clipping that
i must have had now for at least 2 years. Better late than never!

Making the rounds...

The stomach flu has been making the rounds in our
family this week which means a lot of laundry, and a little
bit of down time. Just enough to time to whip up the
camera strap that i have had on my list for a year.

It may be time to find a new favorite...

In a Bind!

Yes, i actually bound a quilt myself. BIG shocker.
I honestly didn't know if i still had it in me. How spoiled am i?
Did i mention that i HATE (excuse the strong language;) binding?
and that the lady who binds my quilts does the tightest, pointed corners for a steal?
Who could blame me?

O.k. maybe binding isn't all that bad.

Just keep moving...

I feel like we are in a state of constant moving in our home. 
One child sleeps upstairs because it's too dark in the basement, 
one wants to move down for a little more privacy. 
My craft room seems to be in constant movement in relation to it's size. 
(which means it has moved a lot!) But i'm happy to say that at the moment 
it is shrinking AND moving upstairs. Hooray for light! 
Here is a sneak peek.

A new permanent home for my collection.

and a new quilt {kind of} for the wall.

What is it about the fall and salsa? 
In this house they go hand in hand. (in mouth!) mmmm

Back to school with a new bundle of HB pencils and a desk
that will soon be a best friend. My 1st in JR. High and my last in preschool.
I hardly know what to think about it...

Wild Hair!

Usually when you think of wild hair something like this comes to mind...

but i had a different kind of wild hair this past week...

A Zig Zag Quilt! I have wanted to sew one of these up for a long while.
Check! One more quilt off of the long and growing list.

On Mothers Day

"I don't want to drive up to the pearly gates in a shiny sports car, wearing beautifully, tailored clothes, my hair expertly coiffed, and with perfectly manicured fingernails.
I want to drive up in a station wagon that has mud on the wheels from taking kids to scout camp.
I want to be there with grass stains on my shoes from mowing my neighbor's lawn.
I want to be there with a smudge of peanut butter on my shirt from making sandwiches for a sick neighbor's children.
I want to be there with a little dirt under my fingernails from helping to weed someone's garden.
I want to be there with the children's sticky kisses on my cheeks and the tears of a friend on my shoulder.
I want the Lord to know I was really here and that I really lived."
Marjorie Pay Hinckley
Words to live by...

A girl can always dream...

I am constantly coming across pictures like these, and if I concentrate hard enough I can just about see myself there. Come and visit!
