Good morning happy Friday eve!
Yesterday I was busy all day long working on my fabric sales and working from home for work also. I made about $170 from my post I put up on Tuesday night. Another almost two hundred dollars to put on the credit card bill! I've got less than 2k on there now so it will be gone before we know it. Then I'm down to a small parent student loan (what's left is small compared to where it started lol) and my car. Then I'll be debt free woohoo.

Yesterday there was a fire that went really close to where my mom's cabin is (where Jess lives). I went over to see how bad it was and ended up standing out  there for like an hour. I of course got a bit sunburnt. Sheesh. 

This is standing on the porch, the fire is one street over and then behind the levee. It was a bit windy too so that was scary.

Here is a picture that the fire dept posted on FB. They said it was 10 acres.  The boonies as we all it is pretty much burnt out. The last time this area caught on fire they used a helicopter to dip into the river.  This time they just had a bunch of fire/water trucks.

After work I went and got Daniel to come play, this is the chaos haha

Miss Lillian all snuggled up when I went to get him

and yesterday I finally saw all the tiny kittens that are living on the side of our garage. We get so many feral kittens over there. Maybe some day we'll get rid of all Scott's crap so it won't be so tempting for them with all the places to hide. They are adorable though. I think I counted 5 of them. If I wasn't dealing with puppy stuff I'd try to catch them to do some fix and release/rehome/tame but I've got enough chaos going on right now.

TG the construction stuff at work isn't too loud today. I've had a headache all morning. Probably dehydrated from my hour of sun yesterday. Plus Aunt Flo just showed up. Fun times! Some day that witch will leave me alone haha.

Good morning happy Tuesday! It took me about 15 minutes to figure out how to get into my work building this morning since they blocked off 2 of the ways. That was fun. 

Jess sent me this picture yesterday, look how light her hair is already. Wonder if we'll have another towhead?

After work yesterday I worked on putting these fabrics on the FB destashing group. I got some claims and everyone paid right away. I made about $80

This is what was left. I put it in a box with the leftovers from the first sale. I'm going to do a few then I'll go back and combine the left overs into a new one.

I went and got another big box out of my room. It has a lot of smaller pieces so I have more than 50 measured out so far. Lots of Asian and Batik pieces. Thinking I might split out the Asian ones and do them by themselves in a listing but maybe not lol.

It is not looking any cleaner in here haha

I am making a pile of the smaller pieces and the ones I cut off to make the edges even and I think I'll clean those up later and make them in groups. Maybe lol.

This morning Trevor go up super early and left. I sent him a message later asking where he went and he said he went to work with his dad. Hopefully that's a good time now lol. I'm sure Scott will love that.

It took me forever to get ready this morning. Got up, took the dogs out, and then took a shower. My hair has been falling out lately. Like a lot. I'm probably going to be bald by Christmas. I just ordered some vitamins off Amazon hopefully they will help. If not I'll get to try out a buzz cut and start wearing hats I guess. 

I weighted myself this morning thinking I had gained back all the weight I had lost since I haven't been very good lately and I actually lost 2 pounds since March lol. I guess I'm just bloated sometimes. I need to get back to taking the bile salt pills, that helped a lot with that.  I completely fell off the take care of myself train at the end of being at Scott's mom's house. 

I had green snot this morning which was disgusting. I was like great I have a sinus infection. But then I was looking it up and it says that it just means your body is doing a good job of fighting off an infection. Hmmm weird. I'm doped up on Robitussin and Flonase at work today and wearing a pad in case I cough or sneeze. Gotta love getting old.

I guess I should actually do some work although I really don't want to haha. We are supposed to wear masks at work since we've had so many covid cases and I just grabbed a paper one this morning. It is like wearing a pad on your face. Currently hanging from my ear...

Hello happy Monday. Coughhh cough cough coughhh
Oh wait I peed myself when I was coughing. Good thing I learned and put a pad on. 
Welcome to 48.

Anyhow, working from home today since I'm a mess.  Working my way through 100 emails. I got all the crap sorted out lol.

You'll be so proud of me! I got my 51 fabrics up on the destash site and sold $75 worth! I still have a bunch of these but hey, some are leaving. Most of these were from the thrift store that I got before the free bags of stuff.  There was a little bit of the free stuff mixed in too.

I was like well that was good I'll work on this next box. Ugh how boring. These are for my keeper pile for now but yuck. Going to have to find a project to use up all those boring light fabrics. 

The next box is much more fun! I've been working through this one (yesterday) and got 22 fabrics to add to my next sale (so far). My goal is 50 a day. Hey maybe I can pay off my credit card faster this way ;) For the fabrics I like that are large enough I'm keeping 1/2 a yard and then selling the rest. A lot of this last box are larger pieces unlike those neutral colors which were mostly small pieces. 

Trevor is playing around in the kitchen. He was already trying to get rid of the ice dispenser tray that I put all the bagged stuff in the freezer in (we don't have water to our fridge-old house). I don't understand why he has to try and take over my stuff haha.  Hopefully he's not making too big of a mess in there.

My friend had to go to CVS and brought me some Robitussin so I'm feeling a tiny bit better at the moment. Might need a nap soon..

While I was out from work another person in the office tested positive for Covid. Glad I wasn't there!

Good morning happy Sunday! Although I'm not too happy that I have to work tomorrow. Booo Hisss. I'm coughing my head off though so might see if I can work from home. I need to go hit the inhaler and take some allergy meds. That seems to help.

This morning I had dog pee on my bed, ants in the kitchen and a hyper puppy eating all kinds of stuff she's not supposed to. Wooohoo. So the dishes are washed and the first load of bedding is in the washer. Thank God for waterproof mattress pads. AND to boot redoing half this post because it disappeared and didn't publish.

Yesterday I worked on my patchwork zip bags. I got almost done but started tossing a few things and just saved the last couple to do later because I was tired of them.

My fan club

Simon would like to be my lap dog.

Last night I started cleaning up all the crap in on my desk. So much stuff from my neighbor lady that died, the other neighbor bringing me all that stuff, some stuff from the thrift store and stuff I pulled out from my shed! I'm drowning. 

This is majorly improved from yesterday haha

I started cutting some larger pieces of fabric down to sell. I will keep a small piece and sell the rest of the ones I like. I am thinking of going through my book case that has the large pieces of fabric and doing the same with those but that would be dumb to start before all the loose stuff I have around. My goal is to get 50 pieces down then list them on the Facebook destashing group. Hopefully that still works since FB keeps making things difficult. I have a bunch of patterns too. I will probably just try to resell them there first and then put what is left on my Etsy. 

I asked Trevor if he wanted to go to the store for us. He said maybe. Hoping he decides to go since we are out of everything. I don't really want to go myself since I'm coughing. We might have to just eat potatoes for dinner haha. And yes I know I overthink going to the grocery store WAY too much.

Ok hopefully this works this time!

Good morning happy Saturday! This morning I asked my son what time he was working today and he told him he had quit his job. So guess no alone time for me for a bit. Nice.. Hopefully he gets into some community college program he says he applied for.

Anyhow! I finished all my tote bags yesterday! I did the last 2 with the fusible fleece and they are way thinner. Definitely like the other batting better but they are all done.

The last string blocks one

and then these 2 have the 1 1/2" strips

Today I am going to work on all the zip bags to finish off the stuff from this project! I don't think I'll finish it all but maybe.

My head was so congested last night I found my nose spray (flonase) and used it and went to bed. I woke up with the worst headache and had to get up to take some ibuprofen. I still have a little bit of the headache left but all the congestion is gone. So weird. I am doing a little bit of coughing but hopefully that will be done real quick.

I got all the clothes washed yesterday I just have to put them away. I need to wash my bedding today too. Currently I have the sprinkler going. My yard looks absolutely horrible. Oh and I got everything off the front porch finally yesterday too. Just need to go through the stuff that was leftover from the yard sale and decide what to do with it. I did a little bit yesterday. Some stuff went into the trash. Some stuff I'll keep and some stuff with get donated I think!

Tina says it's a great day to relax ;)

I think for my next sewing project when I finish this is to put the backing on the denim quilt top I had made. I already washed the backing so I just need to sew it together. Shouldn't take too long. 

I still don't have any groceries. Might send the kid now since he's unemployed...

Good morning happy Friday! It is my last day off boohoo.

I am sick still and have a runny nose and a bit of coughing. I just took an allergy pill to see if that helps a bit (it did yesterday). Last night I was digging through my medicine to find something before bed and everything left expired in 19 or 20. Time to refill the medicine basket. I took another Covid test last night and still negative so just a cold for sure.

Yesterday I watched Daniel for several hours, we watched a bunch of movies, Luca (I only half paid attention to that one but he watched a good portion), Aristocats which he loved and Peter Pan. 

He cracked me up he was dipping this toy with a hat into ranch and then licking it off. I was like that's kind of gross but I guess it's ok haha.

Little guy zooming haha, he did this for a really long time! It is too hot here to play outside so this was one way to use up some energy. Today's forecast is 102. It's been in the hundreds for a few days and supposed to stay there until Tuesday which says 97 so not much better.

Simon resting on me haha. I kept falling asleep while watching a movie and Trevor asked me if I was drugged or something. No just 48...

After I took him home I finished working on my brown bag, this one ended up long and skinny

and a zip bag and coin bag out of the leftovers

This morning Snookie decided she wanted to either kick Simon's ass or be a puppy, not sure which one lol. Yes that is my underwear on the floor they didn't start off there. Thanks Simon!

Today's plan is I have one more bag to sew up with the batting I have. I was thinking I might just use the fusible batting I have for the remainders since I have a bunch of that. That way I don't have to go buy anything or go out. Debating on going to the store real quick or doing another Instacart order. The prices are jacked up a bit for Instacart but it is nice not to have to go out. Plus someone else is getting some money to do my shopping for me too so it is helping someone else out right?

Good morning happy Thursday! Only 2 days left of my vacation and I'm full of snot. Sucks.
No baby pictures from yesterday since I was stuck at home.  I did get a lot of sewing done though. 

This bag turned out just as fantastic as I thought it would

Some little zip bags of the left over reds

and this one is purse size

Love the zip bags from these scraps

Next up is a brown one and then I have one with misc colors. Then I have to go to Joanns to get more batting to finish the last one or two (not sure what was left without batting)

That's my plan for today since my nose is running/stuffed up. Need to unbury my nose spray that has to be on my desk in my sewing room since it is not in the kitchen anywhere.  I took the last of the Robitussin this morning. I think that was the last of any cold type meds in the house. time to restock again.

Good morning happy Wednesday! I was thinking Trevor was over sleeping for work but then remembered he is off today.

I woke up to a runny nose and a little bit scratchy throat. Of course now my ear is plugged up a bit. Took a Covid test and it is negative. Probably got it from Daniel he's had a little bit of a runny nose lately.

Yesterday I finished this little black bag. Super scrappy. I think I will use it for my lunch for work. 

something I did that I'm not sure of made the side a little weird.  I had cut down the original pattern a bit so apparently I should have adjusted the side a bit.

I also sewed up some zip bags

Earlier in the day I watched Daniel while his sister went for her first doctor appointment.

Stole pic from Jess, she's so tiny!

I had Trevor pick us up some Panda for dinner and then later Melissa came over to get her registration sticker and wanted Panda too so we went for a drive and got her some. 

I fixed the under arms of Scott's Tiger shirt and Melissa was saying we had a picture of Trevor in it that I had forgot about. She went and found it in his scrapbook.

Tina looking cute in my sewing chair

Simon is having a great time zooming around the house this morning. She could probably use a good run in the mornings. Trevor was trying to get her to pull him on his skateboard yesterday but said she needs to be just a little bigger for it to work.

Bloglovin is actually working this morning so I can read a few more blogs. I've started bookmarking my favorites on my computer since all the sites that you can put your favorites on keep dying out. 

No plans for today other than some sewing. Should probably do some laundry but we'll see if I get that far. Just noticed today is the day that Lillian was scheduled to be born, still a whole 4 more days until her actual due date.

 Good morning happy Tuesday! 

No sleeping in today with these dogs sheesh. Finally had to get all the way up after Simon knocked over a tote box and it went crashing to the floor. It was so loud!

Here is my finished tote bag after doing some whip stitching in a couple places. It doesn't look too bad. I still like it :)

I finished up all the "blue" zip bags, I love this little coin bag.

This is my favorite of the zip bags with it's teeny tiny scrap panel

This one somehow ended up with Pooh in the middle. I tried cutting characters out of these but this one slipped in and ended up in a great spot. 

2nd favorite

Now I am working on a smaller black scrap one that is all crazy. I will probably just use it for myself. I am working on zip bags with the black scraps too.

For dinner last night I went to Jessica's. They BBQ'd some tri tip, chicken and burgers. Big Daniel's sister made potato salad and this chicken buffalo dip they make, Jess made mac salad and peanut butter pie. It was great and I didn't have to bring anything haha.

Daniel going for a swim for the 12th time of the day. He's such a little water boy. 

Love this one

One week old already

Last night I went and hung out on the porch of the bar with my friend Cassi and other neighbor friends. It was nice until there were too many bugs. 

Today's plan is to work on my bags some more and I think I am babysitting Daniel when they take Lillian for her 1st doctor's appointment. Not sure what time that is at yet. It is supposed to be in the 100's for the rest of the week so the AC is going already.
