Have been busy"""""

Just thought I would try and get a quick post in today. We were discussing bordom at work today and for the life of me" I cannot understand how anyone can be boredddddddddd. There is just tooooooooo much to do all the time and to many places to go. We have spent three days at church this week and between that and work I seldom have time to do anything. I did however manage to stitch up three potatoe bags and a doll quilt so I am getting something done.
I am hoping to find some time this weekend inbetween the church valentines dinner and laundry ect. ect. to get the baby quilt put together with a batting and backing so that I can hand quilt it. will just have to see how the time goes.
Still anxously waiting to find out whether our newest grandchild will be a boy or a girl so that I can get busy and start sewing . Wellllllll I think that is about all there is to write about right now. I am thinking seriously about re joining our quilt guild so may have more to add later. Take care

Needle cases for the church craft group"

Its about time I am getting out of my no sewing mode " which alwasys happens after christmas. I think there is just soooooo much sewing to get ready for christmas that by the time its all over with we are exhausted. Anyway I digress" As many of you already know I joined a new church a few months ago and I have been involved in the craft group. It simply amazes me how much of the financial responsibility comes from these ladies. They make money from the crafts we sell at bazars and pay for building extra rooms on to the church ect. ect. so besides having fun we are actually doing something for our church and community.
Anyway the president of our group was going over the rules last week and said that we all need to carry a bag of our own with our own supplies such as scissors, glue sticks, paint brushes, needles thread ect. things that we might need to work on different projects. they also have things there for us to use but its nice to have our own available in case what we need isen't there. SO I got to thinking it would be nice to have a little needle book to keep my needles in. welllllllllll that made me think gee Linda you could make one for each of the other crafters so that is what I did this morning. If you are interested in the pattern for these little cuties go to http://weddingdressblue.word/  I have also made a small list of a few things that I need to do so hopefully I can stick too it and get them done. already these can be marked off and I made a little tablet cover for my tablet at work so that can be marked off too.
O.k. its time for lunch so I beleive I will go make a cassidiaaaa Its soooo nice to have the day off! take care untill we meet again.

Ohhhhhhhhhh my Goshhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!!!

Ohhhhhhhhhh my Gosh! Have I got newssssssssss I am going to be a grandma once againnnnnnnn by none other then my daughter and babyyyyyyyyy Kerrie: Number five will be born on or about septemeber first! I am soooooooooo excited for her and me! This time I hope to actually be there while she has the baby. Every other baby I have not been able to be there either because of work or distance. I came very close with the first one and only missed him by minutes but this one I am hoping to be there on time. This will make eleven grandkids and two greats between us. wowwwwwwwww who would have everrrrrrrr thought".

I know its been awhile again since I have posted but it seems like there is always something going on and its just hard to get here each day. I think I mentioned not too long ago that I found a new church that I really like. Well hubby has even taken an interest in it so we spend a bit of time there between going to dinners, my craft group and last week we offered to help clean as it is a very small congregation so they do not hire anyone to come in and clean so the members take turns signing up. we signed up for the next three months to clean the nursury. Wouldn't you know the day we were supposed to clean I had to work late so Hubby got to go and clean by himself. He said he had a nice time as there were others there cleaning and they all sat around and visited with coffee afterwards. so I don't feel quite so bad.

Have you all heard about the mugrugs going around? these are sooooooooo cute! I have been wanting to make some forever and this afternoon I finally got around to making one. I mentioned to kerrie that I wanted to make some and she said it would sure be nice if I made one that was coffee themed hint hintttttttt so thats what I did. The fabric is actually much brighter then it is shown here. not sure why the picture came out so dull but its cute! These are larger then a coaster so that they will hold your cup of coffee or tea and a couple of cookies, or a cupcake, doughnut you get the ideaaaaaa anyway I just love them. Would like to get some made up for christmas next year. I bought some valentines fabric yestarday at the fabric barn so I might have to make a few more.
Lately I have been in a no sewing mood. It always seems to hit me after christmas is over with" I think I am just plain worn out. But it is gradually comming back too me so I have a stack of things that I would like to work on. Ohhhhhhhhhhh I am even going to teach myself to knit. My daughter in law bought me a bag of yarn with a beginners book , cd, needles ect. so today I sat down and watched a vidio on continental knitting which I love. after watching all the other methods I think this is the one for me. I already have some thread casted on to the needle so its a beginning. I still have my afghan waiting to be chorcheted too. 'Have been working on my grandmothers flower garden blocks . Welllllllllll guess I had better get off this thing as it is getting late and I have been in here most of the day doing one thing or another. take care untill we meet again.
