Sunday Updates

Image
Again it is Sunday and no sky has been posted. So to make up for it, I will post two skies.

Here is my Saturday sky.


but I like my Friday night sky better.

I looked outside and saw these pink clouds from the setting sun. They looked like wisps of cotton candy and when I went outside to take a picture of them, I saw the sun setting and took that instead.

It's been an interesting couple of days. The rugrats each had field day activities, Baby Girl on Thursday, #1 Son on Friday.

Saturday. Well let's just say some old poop that's been gathering over the years hit the fan. In between all the flying poop I finished this.

It's a Lizzie*Kate Snippet Design using WDW threads, DMC floss and some 28ct linen from the stash. It took me exactly one month to complete. I plan on framing it with a cute picture of the rugrats. I even have the picture in mind. However considering how long it took me to finish off the laundry one and how another one is still waiting for the right…

Thursday Kitties on a Friday

Are these REAL fish?!?!


That human won't find me back here!


Foiled.


NOW I'm hidden!


What's this?!?




Does it move?




WHOA!


Can't I get ANY private time?!?


You see this as a compromise, I see this as a win.


Fine, let her have her *alone time*. I'll hang with Tiger.


I'm so loved......

The Machine Was SMOKIN'!

Sometimes I think that when I organize my stuff, all I really do is move it around. The last time I cleaned out the office, I pulled out my craft table and put it in the living room. It's been there for longer than I care to say. It's been a holding ground of sewing projects; quilts, repairs, fabric to make cute outfits, and ironing. Since I'm getting close to my deadline of finishing (or STARTING) that quilt for Baby Girl's teacher, I decided to pull out the sewing machine and ironing board and tackle that mountain of fabric.

After I finished ironing some shirts and dresses, I started on the fun stuff. First, I found some fabric to use in #1 Son's room.

Out with the old


and in with the new.

with a matching pillow case.


A little patch on a plain shirt to jazz it up a bit.


Next, I finished month 2 for my BOM quilt.


I tried doing a blog search to see if anybody else had done this kit before (its called Countryside Cottage from JoAnn's) and I only found 2 referen…

Fabric

This is the latest edition to the pile. It was in the remnant bin at JoAnn's. It's enough to make a pillow case for Baby Girl.


Fur

When we first got Hemi, his fur was a bit rough, but after almost a year of tender loving care, it is silky soft.


Flowers

From our hibiscus bush.


Some weeds try to have such pretty flowers. They get pulled anyway.

Saturday Sky

Image
Has it REALLY been a week since I last posted?!!? WOW! I knew it was a busy week, but didn't realize HOW busy!! Nothing out of the ordinary, but I didn't get to work on much so there were no progress pictures; I met with my stitching group on Thursday so no time to post Kitty Thursday pics; and the kids were home yesterday so no time for ANYTHING! I also think the yard sale from last week wore me out more than I expected because I didn't do much of anything on Monday which set me back on getting things done.

Anyway, enough bemoaning abt that! Let's get to some pictures! First up, the local sky and temp.



It's the kind of day where it's really hard to wake up. Or the kind of day you just want to sit around watching movies. I plan on doing just that.

I haven't been working on much this week. I'm still plugging away on #1 Son's socks, and I have YET to finish that cuff! I've never had a sock take so long and will be VERY happy when this is …

The Ides of March Sky

Image
Don't be getting used to these early morning shots because I will NOT be making a habit of them! A friend of mine was having a yard sale these past two days and I've been helping her out. This shot was taken during a donut run.

I left around 2:30pm because it was just getting too warm outside, and when I got home I saw the reason why.


While this is the hottest expected for the next week or so, it won't be getting much cooler so it looks as if Spring has definitely sprung here in the Central Florida area. This means I REALLY need to start working in the yard if I want to avoid those hot days that will be here sooner than later.

And for those who remembered that today is also the Ides of March, not only did Julius Caesar die on this day, but so did George McFly in Back to the Future II (click on the above link and scroll down to see this little piece of trivia).

Meanwhile, Lucy says:

Don't worry, Caesar, I've got your back.

Early morning sky

This was taken at 7:26AM this morning. We used to have sun when we woke up for school, now we have this. Thank you DST.

Encyclopedia

This is one of #1 Son's favorite books. He has had this for a couple of years now and he still loves to look thru it.

Eyes



the End

A Little Bit of Everything.

Last Monday I sent this off to A4A


and this to CIC.


Then Caesar decided that the shelter blanket was going to be his. (notice the needles still attached).

So I cast off and will keep it for him.


That winds down all of my charity knitting. Other than my white sweater, #1 Son's socks is the only knitting project I have going on. (this is the beginning of sock #2)


So I've been pulling out my stitching instead. Here are my hearts (before and after)



and my seasonal spring (before and after).




I also pulled out the fabric for the handprint quilt.

I picked up some Wonder Under and some other stuff to print pictures on fabric so I can start working on that.

I haven't been the only one getting projects done. The IO picked up some wood to make this for Baby Girl.


She has been in dire need of a bookcase. Between the books we've gotten her and the old ones that #1 Son doesn't read anymore, she has quite a stack. Now I have someplace to put them other than piling them on the floor.
