I really do owe you all who follow my blog an apology" I have been so busy between church , sewing for the new grandbaby, work and cooking that I just don't seem to take the time to get here and post like I should.
This has been one heck of a winter for sickness also. It seems like between my hubby and I we have just been going back and fourth with respiratory infections.
Yestarday I ran all over trying to find something to wrap candy in that I am making for the churches craft fair which we are having tomorrow. I finally found some cute little easter bags to put it in. Today after work I drove to the church to help them get everything out on the floor. what a job! and tomorrow I will go in and man the goody table. (not a bad job) But I bet I will be the busiest one there! I made up bags of chocholate peanut butter balls and from what the other ladies are bringing we should have lots to sell. I am conemplating making a loaf or two of beer bread because it is so easy and fast and I am at the point now where I am beat. Wonder how that would go over at the church lols
Lets see what have I sewn lately that you haven't seen. ? ohhhhhh I made a little diaper bag for my daughter just one of those you throw a few diapers in and once my granddaughter saw it she immediately said ohhhhhh grandma made me another purse ! so you know what I stayed up that nite making.
Then I managed to make a couple of bibs for the new baby. I did them in blues and browns because we thought it might be a boy but Girls still ruleeeeeeeeee so will have to make some up in purples as the other granddaughter informed her mama that pink is herrrrrrr color. Shes only two so there might be a little bit of jelousy.
I have been looking at other blogs and the circle thing has been all over every where sooooooooo I got on the band wagon and made a lap quit top. I say top because that is as far as I got as other things kept getting in the way which is o.k. because I sure won't need it around here untill next winter.
The next two projects will be a cover for my new kindle that hubby bought me for our anniversary. Hes so sweet he got it for me early because I didn't want to buy another book" knowing that I was going to get it next month. I am also working on another baby quilt for the new baby. My daughter always laughs at me because I usually make each new baby enough darn quilts to keep them warm for a lifetime. Anyway this one is a work in progress not too mention the one I am making for her and hubby. I swear no wonderrrrrrrrrr I never get any time to blog" I am always doing something! lols
Linda wrote and asked me if I had finished my embroidered kitty " The kitties are done but the flowers aren't and from the looks of it they probably won't be for awhile. I have a dear friend in Australia who is always sending me patterns and I would dearly love to get busy and do some of those too. Well we get an easter break so I am hoping the new joanns in Greenville will be open by then so that I can go check out the material. would like to make the new baby some washclothes and other things . Who ever said life slows down as you get older didn't know what they were talking about. I am busier now then I was when I was younger. It seems like there is always something to do or some place to be!
O.k. I am off again and I will really try to do better but no guarantees. Life just does what ever it wants too"
