The week-end was nice but quick. In fact, it seems as if that's just how time is in general anymore...quick. Friday night hubby got home early (after a super busy week for him) and we had one of our favorite kind of nights.We call it whalloring, lol. Basically he bbq'd some nice steaks, I made up a scrumptious salad and corn on the cob, and then got into pj's and we hit our couch under our afghans for a little TV. We recorded the Olympic opening to watch later (just can't seem to abide commercials anymore) and watched instead our recorded episodes of American Idol. Both hubby and I enjoy this show, and this year the judging seems to be much better. No body is standing out though for either one of us so far yet. I picked both Carrie Underwood and Scotty McCreery from their first auditions though, lol. I think we were both snoring by shortly after 9.
Sat. morning hubby left early to go and help Jessie's hubby finish up wallpapering the nursery for their coming baby, and I hit the sewing machine. I have moved onto to bibs now. If I think the burp cloths are quick and easy, the bibs are even more so. I downloaded free patterns off of the internet and use my scraps, so basically they all seem almost free. I do use warm and natural on them, so they are more absorbent, and are keeping them kind of simple. They are a little small to embroider, so I haven't done any of that, but I have done a little appliqueing of these too. I was out of both snaps and Velcro however, so I didn't finish them completely, but I picked those up yesterday afternoon, so hopefully soon I will. Both my daughter and my dil could use a few more bibs (their babies are both at prime drooling ages, lol) so I am going to make a few more up for them while I am at it. Let me show you what I've made...
|COLOR IS NOT REAL GOOD, BUT YOU GET THE IDEA, LOL|
|WANTED TO SHOW YOU A CLOSE UP OF ONE OF THEM SO THAT YOU CAN SEE THE NEAT TOP STITCH MY NEW MACHINE CAN DO...I LOVE IT!|
Sunday found us down in San Diego at church, lunching with my son's family, and then hubby took me by Joannes on the way home. There is a MUCH bigger one on our way home then the one by us and I just couldn't resist going. There was soo much fiddly stuff I needed. Snaps, velcro, thread, heat and bond, needles, and warm and natural just name a little bit of it. But of course I had to carouse the fabric too. I feel like I know it all by heart, but hey, you never know they might have something new, lol. I did find some sponge bob flannel for Cody (his favorite) and some St. Patty's Day fabric to make up something cute for Luke (more on that later). After that we headed home and enjoyed ANOTHER night comfy in front of the TV.
This week I need to concentrate on getting Donatella's gifts together for her birthday party next Sunday. She is our Valentine's baby and I can't believe she is already 5! How could that be? I am making her a pair of little red legging pants with little white hearts, and embroidering her a top to go with them. I also am going to make her a pair of Tinkerbell jammies. I want to her find her some little shoes and hopefully a bow for her hair as well. OH! and a few little pairs of ear rings for her soon to be pierced ears. It is what she has chosen for her birthday this year. So guess I'd better get off of this computer and get to cracking. Hope you all have a GOOD week!
Of course I have to leave you with a few pics of the grands...Sorry, I never can resist.
