O.k. lets try this one more time" I just finished writting a post and tried to add some pictures and nothing worked. this just isen't my day.
I have had a bad week with an upper respiratory infection so by the time I get home from work I haven't had the energy to do any quilting just sitting at the computer for inspiration. I found a ruler set that I think I am going to really enjoy. its called Elisas crazzy curves and you can make drunkards path blocks ect. with it.
Then I received a coupon from joanns and they happened to have the sizzix machines on sale " well they also sent me a free shipping and handling coupon sooooooooo you guessed it! I got one! I am so excited to use it and the ruler. I am going to joanns in Greenville next week when we head down there for hubbies doctors appointment so hopefully I will find a cute applique die that I can use for quilting. that is why I bought the machine. its doubtfull that I will ever get into scrapbooking as I already have wayyy too many hobbies as it is and not enough room to hold them all. I also joined a yahoo group for quilters who use the sizzix machine. will hopefully have some pictures to post next time from both of my new toys.
Guess I will quit writting now as I keep getting interrupted by hubby. steven our one of our grandsons is comming over to dinner tonite and we are having fajittas. well hubby wants to cook them but dosen't know what to do so he keeps asking me" I told him I would cook them but he seems to want too so now I have been delegated to take care of the tortia shells. think I can handle that lols take care untill next time.
Its saturday yessssssssssss!!!! Time seems to rush by so quickly " including the weekends. I came home yestarday and found hubby under the house working on the air conditioning duct. he had been under there the day before and pulled it out as he said it has deteriorated. wellll he looked awfull and said he had been under the house since eleven that morning" it was three o.clock when he came out". How do you tell a man that is 73 years old that he is toooooooo dang old to be crawling around under the house ? He is sooooooo sore today he can hardly move. His grandson was over last nite and said why didn't you call me??? He said no " everyone is always calling you to do things and I just didn't want too". Did I mention the word stubbornnnnnnnnnnn. anyway that duct has apparently been shot for quite awhile as there is a hugeeeeeeeeeee difference in the air we are getting into the house. so I can just imagine our heat bills and air cond. bills are going to drop".
After fixing dinner for the three of us" I got started on a new washcloth pattern or dishcloth which ever you want to use it for.Its called the basket weave and I am loving it! the texture in you hands is wonderfull! and it is an easy pattern that goes together quickly. this may become my new favorite!
untill next time".
One more unfinished project on its way to fiality. I found a bag full of squares called the ducks in a row block and decided I should at least get them together and that way I would be much more likely to add a border later on.
Should make a nice lap size quilt with borders on it. untill next time " I am off to see what else I can get into" .
Easter vacation is just about over with. we return back to school monday. Have enjoyed being off and relaxing soooooooo much! Really haven't accomplished as much as I thought I would but some things have been in the works. I started this cute wall hanging !
I have been in one of those moods where I just could not get interested in anything I saw . anyway needless to say that all ended when I came upon this little jewel. He makes me smile every time I look at him so he will go next to my sewing machine when he is finished.
I have also been working on some of my knitting.
This is the beginning of a baby blanket. and I have also been working on a cable scarf. the cables do not show up very well in this picture but as time goes on " I will see if I can't get a better picture of it.
Hmmmmmmmm you can't even see the cables in the middle" there has to be a better way to take pictures of these things. will do some investigating to see if I can figure it out.
Other then this I have been knitting more dishcloths and a lot of relaxing. Hope all is well with all of you" take care untill next time.
