I have decided I must be doing something wrong as I just can't seem to get my posts up as quickly as soo many of you do or something, as it seems as if I am lucky if I get a couple a week up and MANY of you post close to everyday. I think I just must be S L O W !! haha
Anyway, the time is whipping by and while I am fine with that as I am getting very excited for Thanksgiving and the rest of the holidays, I have as usual gotten myself a little TOO busy. I have completed Sam's blanket bag (it's adorable!) (OH, except for the snap ~ never done one of those and I am just waiting for the right moment to attempt it, haha) and 7 new burp cloths. Melody couldn't seem to make it through more than a day or two with her supply as poor Sam does seem to be somewhat of a spitter. I didn't mind at all making him a few more as they are quick and easy. Just my kind of project, haha. Then, I have also made Jeffie's pj's and was moving right along with Capri's when I ran into somewhat of a problem. I originally had purchased the fabric (Hello Kitty pink Christmas) for Donatella, when I heard that it was Capri who has a special love for Hello Kitty. Sooo of course I decided to do Capri's jammies with that fabric. Well, it wasn't quite enough but I thought I could make it work....I usually can in these type of cases. Well, I hadn't accounted for the fact that it is a one way fabric and therefore it just wasn't happening. I am short one leg for the bottoms. I decided to go ahead and make the top and THEN go out and get the extra fabric. They had a TON of it when I bought it. Well of course, that was a very dumb move. They were completely out. I guess Hello Kitty is still popular...especially when it is Christmas fabric and on sale. Anyway, the nice gal at the store began calling around for me trying to locate some somewhere. She finally finds a yard at some store in a city I had never heard of (never a good sign) and I decided to just whip on over late yesterday afternoon to pick it up. Well, almost 40 min. later I was there (she gave WONDERFUL directions) It was a beautiful city and I would have loved to look around, but I needed to hurry as it was getting late. Well, bottom line, it was the WRONG Hello Kitty fabric! She felt bad and I was somewhat hysterical, haha. I had driven a long way. Sooo, I decided I might as well look around right? I mean I was THERE afterall. Well another 40 minutes later and I left with yet more fleece to make Sam a Christmas blanket. The fabric was just tooooo darling to resist. So I will make (my first ~ surely I can do these...I have heard they are easy) one of those tie together fleece blankets. Just what I needed (yeah right) another project. It was late and I needed to get home but quickly realized I was a little dumber than I thought as now I would be driving home in rush traffic going the way EVERYONE else in So. California was going to get home. WHAT was I thinking? An hour and half later I was FINALLY home....sigh....and with NO Hello Kitty fabric. What we do for grandkids huh? I have not given up though. I will find the fabric. Some time today I will check online. SURELY someone has it right? Oh, and I also spent quite a bit of time making up the invitations yesterday for Sam's open house which will be the Sat. after Thanksgiving. That was A REALLY REALLY REALLY LONG and horrifying story, but I will spare you the details of that. It is done is all I will say, haha. Oh, and I did all our laundry yesterday too. Now today I have to go to my mom's and get her to her doctor's appointment, run an errand or two for her, and IF there is enough time left over we are going to start a Bible study together, She is having a hard time reading still, so we thought this would be a good way to get her back in the Word. I am looking forward to that. Whenever I go to my mom's I drive home in RUSH HOUR traffic too, so guess I will be doing that two days in a row, haha. I do thank God that I do not have to do that EVERY day, as I know MANY do. Soooo, all of this and I haven't even posted about what I wanted to.....I will sum it up fast.
The week-end was FAST and wonderful. I sewed most of the day Sat. while hubby climbed back up on the roof. Bottom line, the cover is MUCH better, but STILL not perfect. More work this week-end on that. And Sun was wonderful. The message was just sooo good. I am still dwelling on it. And when I get more time later this week I WILL post more about that. Soo now I will post a couple of pics of my finished projects, and then jump into the shower and get moving on this day. I praise God today for the ability to be busy!! Hope you all have a wonderful day!!
