Sad news

Yesterday morning, my sister-in-laws sister died from injuries sustained from a snowmobile accident in New Hampshire. We don't know all the details yet, but the family is crushed. Two children, one in college and one a senior in high school. Our prayers are with the Bradanick family!

I still have to finish up my Valentines Swap goody. I worked this weekend, so I"m hoping to get it done tomorrow.

Jared did texted me earlier and ask if I would send some cookies and brownies! What a hoot! The food is not so good at college so he's looking for some homemade goodies. He'll be home in another two weeks, but I'll send some anyways! Isn't that what Moms do?

Hope everyone is having a super day!

Cold is Almost Gone!

I'm feeling much better. It's been about a week with the cold and I think I'm going to make it! I don't need to use that many tissues during the day now which is good. I think John is coming down with it though! He called from work and said he was not feeling so good. Oh, boy! That means a long weekend for Kay and I. LOL

I have done no sewing this past week other than the lanyard for work. I did start making a Disney album for a co-worker who is going to Florida in April. All she'll need to do is add the photos. When I'm finished I'll take a pic and post it.

Hope everyone is having a super day!

Lanyard and a Cold!

Yes, I got the winter cold! Felt good yesterday at work, but by the time I got home..look out! Where are the tissues? How many times can a person blow their nose? So today is a low key day, just me and my box of tissues.

I might try and make a new lanyard for work. With the fabric I have around here, I'm sure I can make one. I want to make a springy one, something with alot of color. I'm sure the residents will love to see something with color!

Hope everyone is having a super day!

New Books

I got a Barnes & Noble gift certificate from my husband for Christmas and these are the goodies I got. I've just starting gardening this past summer, with little luck, so I got a book on square foot gardening. Maybe I'll yield more this year with the help of the book.

The other book is: One yard wonders. Things you can make with one yard of fabric. Oh, gosh! What do I make first? Some of the patterns are for purses, baby goodies, organizing items for your house. I"m going to be busy for sure!

Jared went back to college yesterday. He texted me this morning at 7am saying its still dark out! He hasn't seen that early in about a month! Off to class you go, Jared!

Speaking of off you go..i should get ready for work! Have a good day!

What to Sew?

Went to my Quilt store, Cobblestones, this past week and got these goodies. I want to make another A Piece of Cake from Thimble Blossoms. I finished the snowman top of A Piece of Cake, I just need to get backing.

Last night I watched about 2 hours of television on Haiti. I just couldn't believe that it actually happened. Because of watching so much tv, I was up in the middle of the night thinking about it. I sure do pray that the people of Haiti get everything they need soon.

Jared goes back to college on Monday. It was wonderful having him home and having him at the dinner table every night. He is excited to get back and see his friends and start classes again. He truly loves college.

Hope everyone is having a super day!

A Piece of Cake

I got this quilt pattern right before Christmas but didn't have time to start it! So I started it this weekend and I have most of the top done. Its Thimble Blossoms, A Piece of Cake. I used all snowman fabric. Now to do the borders! I wanted to get the fabric today but the store is closed on Mondays. Maybe tomorrow after work.

I also made some homemade bread today. Hopefully it'll taste good with dinner tonite. Hope everyone is having a good day today!

Birthday Girl!

Happy Birthday to Kaylee! She turns 17 today! I can't believe it. Where does the time go? I think she was around 8 yrs when she found out that she had the same birthday as Elvis. She was so happy..because she hated that her birthday was in the winter and not the summer so she couldn't have a pool party. She's now a junior in high school and thinking of studying Occupation Therapy in college.

Have a wonderful Birthday, Kaylee! xoxo

We took down all the Christmas decorations today and got the house back to normal. Whatever normal is? I still have a few odds and ends that need to be put away, but most of the stuff is put away.

I did sew these four pillowcases today. I was sewing in between watching the Patriots football game. We lost in the fourth quarter! Say it isn't so!

Have a super day!

Happy New Year!

Can you believe its already 2010! Where is the time going? It seems like yesterday my kids were in elementary school and now they are in college and one a junior in high school. WOW!

In the new issue of American Patchwork & Quilting Magazine, they are putting out a challenge for people to make one million pillowcases in 2010. You sign up and tell them how many you've made and you donate them to a charity of your choice. So far, I've made one and have four more cut out and ready to sew. I would love to make at least fifty and donate them. How fun is that! It will certainly keep me busy.

I hope 2010 brings everyone health and happiness.
