Crumb Blocks and Wine Bags

Good morning, TGIF!

Yesterday I cleaned up my desk a bit and put my scraps away in their color coordinated bags. Brown & beige was over flowing so I made a few crumb blocks.

6 more added to the stash

I was trying to decide on what to work on next and decided to finish up these wine bags I had cut out at some point. I think in 2019! They all needed linings cut out. I swear that takes the longest trying to find fabrics to match.

They are all pinned together and ready to sew now. I finished one up all the way since it has been a little while since I've made them. Just like riding a bike ;)

Those should keep me busy for a day or two.

I have an appointment today to take my phone in for a new battery. Hopefully that goes smoothly!
If the weather is nice tomorrow I want to work out in the yard so I can get these seedlings I started into the ground soon. We'll see if that actually happens.  I should probably go soak the ground a bit.

Hope everyone has a nice weekend. Mother's Day is on Sunday and I am not prepared haha.

Sewing & Chatting

Good morning Happy Thursday! 

It's already getting hot here. I haven't even bothered opening the windows this morning since I'm going to turn the air conditioner on soon.

Yesterday I decided to make up those fat quarters I got at the antique shop into some zip bags.

One side

Other side


and then I had a little bit left to make some mug rugs

I put some stuff I made up on Etsy. Trying to do that as I go now since the craft shows I had all stacked up keep getting cancelled or suck haha. I don't think I am going to sign up for any outside of May until September since it gets too hot and I just can't handle the heat.

I have May 16th at the Outlets & May 29th little car show out where  I live.

My sister in law got some tickets for them to go to the Monterey Aquarium. They were trying to make it a big family trip but I wasn't able to get tickets for the same time as them FOR JULY so I said we'd just skip it this time. The first time I tried to log on to get tickets there was literally 11000 people in line ahead of me. When I tried again later it was like 2500. By the time I got in there was nothing until an hour later than everyone else's tickets. I don't know how long they let you stay in the aquarium but if it was only an hour that wouldn't be worth "going together". 

Oh well we are going to plan our family camping trip for the week after that so that will make things less stressful.

I have an appointment tomorrow to take my phone in for a new battery. I haven't even had it a year and the battery is failing. I think it is all covered but even if I had to pay a bit it would be worth it to not have to have it plugged in all the time. So annoying. Last night it wouldn't charge over 1% even though it was plugged in for hours. It did finally charge up over night but I still have it plugged in because it usually just drains really quickly.

I think I am going to buy myself a new laptop since Trevor has pretty much taken over mine and held it hostage. There is a lot of stuff I still like to do on the computer vs my phone.

Well hope you all have a great day! Probably going to play with some scraps and work on putting some fabric on my book case Scott finally fixed last weekend. I need to be able to close the sewing room door when he's yelling at his baseball team ;)

Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Good morning Happy Cinco de Mayo!

Last night I finished up working on these. This fabric is so cute

My neighbor claimed a couple of the mug rugs. She bought 2 of the yellow lab ones off of me from the first round I did.

I got all the laundry done yesterday including Scott & Trevor's clothes to be nice. I was rewarded with a $3 tip! 

There is already another loads worth of laundry to do and I want to wash my bedding so there is that. 
Today is staff meeting day. So exciting. Not. 

My dog Rusty has been limping a little bit since yesterday evening. Hopefully he just did something to make himself a little sore and fit feels better soon.

Hope you all have a great day!

Fabric at the Antique Store

Good morning, happy Tuesday! Yesterday I did a bunch of laundry and even put it away, go me! Also worked on keeping the kitchen cleaned up and the sink empty, although I have a couple things to wash this morning. I made a roast in the crock pot so dinner was easy. I think I will throw the chicken I have in there for tonight's dinner. I'm pretty much sick of chicken but that's about all I've got. Scott usually goes shopping for his mom on Tuesdays after work so I'll have him pick up some more meat. I really need to go to the store and do one of the slow walks down all the aisles to just stock up the whole kitchen. One of these days haha.

I almost forgot about the few things I bought on my trip. We stopped at my favorite antique store in Jackson on our way to Reno. I got these two fat quarters of funny cats and mice. There is a tiny bit of salvage showing that says they are Moda Fabrics.  They says "Sneaky mice and a lazy cat are all that's needed to keep them fat." Kind of funny. I just like the cute pictures mostly.

Also got another Campbell's kids mug. My grandma collected Campbell's kids stuff and I got a few of her mugs when she passed away. We like them so much and use them for coffee too. A few have got broken over time so I just pick them up whenever I find them reasonably priced. 

After work I was so lazy and just laid on the couch looking at Tik Tok's. I may be obsessed. So much fun stuff out there. Girl living in her van, a funny girl who has stories about working in a fabric store, someone with a crazy neighbor, etc etc. 

Around 8 I finally went into my sewing room and worked on my mug rugs and zip bags a bit. Today I should get these finished up, just need to trim and sew the backs on the mug rugs and sew the zip bags together.

I was supposed to have a booth at the outlets this Saturday but they cancelled it due to forecasted wind. Great! I'd rather stay home then be out in the wind. So the next one is for the same place on the 16th. Sad part is now I'll have to unload my car. Well if I need to use the back of it before then anyways haha.

Ok off to do the two things I have for work so far. We were supposed to have a soft deadline this week and we so aren't going to make it. This is the most behind I have ever seen our office. Hope you all have a great day!

Weekend Fun


Saturday we watched the baby with Melissa while Jessica and Daniel went away for the night. First time leaving him!

We pretty much passed him around all day taking turns with him.

Melissa took him to his house for the night and brought him back to Scott in the morning because she was exhausted haha.

I was at my craft show. Of course it was super windy. I started off my day by spilling my coffee all over my sweatshirt I brought. I was more sad that I didn't have any coffee left. (That reminds me I need to go wash that). 

The super windy set up. Everything tied down.

I didn't sell much and I was by myself so it was kind of "not fun" haha.

I kept waiting for someone's tent to fly away but amazingly it didn't happen.

I had homemade tamales for lunch, they were yummy.

The gal across from me was selling masks for $1. She wore one hanging from her neck all day but never put it on. Thought that was interesting. I wore mine for most of the day except. Some people had them on and some didn't. Her booth was pretty busy but she never sold out.

All I wanted after the show was some ice cream. I went to McDonald's and of course they didn't have any lol. Ok Diet Coke it is.  My next show is at a fancier place on Saturday. The weather report says wind but I hope it will blow over by then. Also I think it might be a bit more sheltered from the wind so lets hope!

Jessica's Birthday Party

 Good morning! I'm exhausted from my weekend! I think I'll do a couple posts since I have so many pictures of things.

Thursday was Jessica's birthday so we went over to her house for a BBQ and cake and ice cream. Earlier in the day my mom came over and brought us breakfast. I had a big sink full of dishes that she offered to wash for me lmao. No MOM! I can wash my own dishes. I washed everything later and put it away and sent her a picture lol. Clean sink lasts longer in a picture that's for sure! 

Over and Jessica's, the baby was so cute touching Scott's face.

Playing with Daniel's sister. He loves his aunties.

With Auntie Melissa (that's Daniel's mom on the right, she was there visiting)

Actually ordered a cake for the first time in forever. Usually I make the cakes but she wanted the one with strawberries from Safeway. They have the best cake! The one they just sell off the shelf has almonds and she is allergic to them so she got fancy ;)

Goof balls

Melissa & Eric

She said she wanted her name for her piece, well just the first 4 letters (what she likes to be called)

Dinner was great (hamburgers and hot dogs) and nice to have a party at someone else's house haha. Now we are done with birthdays until October (for our immediate family). Woohooo
