My To Do List

1. Field trip at the zoo in torrential downpour - check
2. walk into a wall in the middle of the night - check

The fat lip is particularly attractive with the runny nose from walking around for 2 hrs. in the rain. Wow, can you see the line of eligible bachelors knocking on my door?

Today is our church festival. So everyone gets to enjoy the fat lip with me. Every kid in school AND their parents!

Hope the weekend is better than the end of the week, and hope you have a great weekend too!

some photos

First, my sundress that I made... I think I look a little chubby in it, but it's very comfy. Pretty much backless though, so I had to wear a jacket for work. The dress is a simplicity pattern for a halter top that I made longer into a dress.

Next, the dish towels that I embellished for Jane's Birthday- the fabric is from Moda, called "Fresh". I love the tulips- just so springtime!

Last, the tote that I made for mom. I wish that I would've boxed the corners, but other than that I love it. The interior is a remnant from Joann's, and the exterior is a pair of dish towels I got for $1.25 from Target. I really love Target...

The gifts were a success- mom & Jane both seemed happy, so I'm really happy that I finished them.
Now I'm looking forward to a fun weekend with my sister, b-i-l and neice and nephew. We've got lots of good things planned... food, sun, fun, sailing... I just have to remember to bring the camera. I'm really bad about taking photos!
Hope your long weekend is as fun as mine :)

Woo Hoo!

I finished a bag for mom last night! I took some horrible photos, which I'll be posting later tonight. Note to self: finish projects earlier! Lighting at night is not that good for pictures!

Hopefully tonight I can finish Jane's gift. It's more than 1/2 way finished now, so things are looking good.

We've been reading a lot of "Magic Tree House" books lately, so I'm ending my post with a quote from one of my favorite characters, Teddy....


Hope you have a great day!

Happy Birthday Mom!

Tomorrow is mom's birthday, and hopefully tonight I'll actually finish making her gift. This may be a night for coffee instead of sleep.... especially since my dear friend Jane has a birthday on Friday... wish me luck that I finish the gifts! If I do, photos will be posted tomorrow.
