Catching Up



Austin's sick and napping right now so I thought I'd take a second before Hannah gets off the bus to catch up a bit.

Above is a little rag quilt that Hannah and I made last Friday night. I got the idea from Marcia and like she suggested, I did not put any batting between the two layers. They are super cute and quick.....provided that you don't mix up the squares. Oops!

On Saturday, I rushed off BY MYSELF to Jo-Ann Fabrics and picked out some deco fabric for some curtains. It was they last day of their 50% off sale, but since I'm Miss Indecisive I didn't buy anything, only checked out some samples.

When I returned home, Miranda (our 12 year old neighbor) called saying she was bored and wanted to come over. As she and Hannah made a pillow, I worked in the EGF room.


Afterwards, she wanted to do a rag quilt herself. So....I cut out the squares and she sewed them together. I don't have a picture of that one because it's now at her house. She's using it as a pattern.

See....on Sunday, I had to go to her house to set up her mom's old sewing machine.

And.....tomorrow her mom and I will be heading back to Jo-Ann's to turn in my samples and buy the fabric for the den curtains......since I finally made up my mind. Now, I must decide on my kitchen curtains. I'll post a separate photo with some pictures when I have time. I'm sooooo ready to get rid of all this "builder's tan" on my walls. Between that and this neverending winter weather, I'm getting depressed. :-)


Btw, if anyone knows where I can find that groundhog, please let me know. I have a few choice words for him!

WE DON'T GO BY THE GROUNDHOG AROUND HERE, WE HAVE SAND MOUNTAIN SAM, HE'S A OPPOSSUM.( HOWEVER YOU SPELL IT.) HE DIDN'T SEE HIS SHADOW. WE ALWAYS GO BY HIM, I MEAN HE IS A SOUTHERN FORCASTER AND WE DO LIVE IN THE SOUTH AND HE'S RIGHT MOST OF THE TIME.
I LOVE ALL THE CRAFTING, GOOD LUCK ON SEWING. HOW'S AUSTIN DOING?

I too, would like to clobber that little rodent.

BUT totally cute blanket! They are fun, huh? Whenever Doug's out of town I plan on pulling the sewing machine out to the living room for days at a time. Love to make those things.
