Good morning happy Sunday! Why does the weekend have to go so fast? 

Yesterday we went to my niece and nephew's 9th birthday! So crazy they are 9 already. There wasn't very many people there so I am glad we went. My other brother had company so wasn't able to go I guess. 

Big sister Ava, Emma & Vincent

We took Daniel with us. Sadly there weren't any little kids to play with but Vincent & Emma played with him a bit. 

They both got a skateboard for their birthday, I hope that doesn't lead to broken bones lol

Crashed out on the way home

We checked out the river real quick, still not up on the levee so that is good. 

Then we went to the St Patty's party. Yum! Gave half that cabbage to my friend Traci lol

I look like crap. What's up with my bangs? I just trimmed them too but they still look too long. I need to go get my hair cut I think. Scott got his cut yesterday and they trimmed his eyebrows too lol.

My friends Traci and Ginny

Little Miss Rosie. Her mom sent me these pictures, so cute. She is 9 months old now.

The kids will be coming over later while their mom goes to work so I have a little bit of time before I have to clean the house lol. 

I am working on getting fabrics ready for my whatnot sale on Friday. I have 20 Christmas fabrics & panels ready to go. That was one bin's worth on my shelf.  Just need to finish adding those to the site for a preview. Trying to decide what else to add to it. 

Ok going to work on that some more!

Good morning happy Saturday!

Scott and I had a grocery shopping date last night. We went to Applebees and had a green drink first. That was fun lol. I picked him up and dropped him off at his mom's house. He is so over being there. 

Jess got the kids in their green outfits yesterday. 

In the morning

later in the day she said he was being grouchy lol

love this one


My old boss said she saw this and thought of me. I always doodle during meetings just like this lol. She said I could have a side job of teaching people how to do it. Jessica said I don't need anymore side hustles ;) If you read it it says how it helps you pay attention. See I'm not crazy haha.

Yesterday's mail. Whoopsie haha. Great fabrics though. Finally got the Lisa Frank ones I was excited about.

I got 2 more bags done yesterday. I have 4 left to sew in my cut out pile. Love this one!

and this one too!

I sold one of the ones I posted yesterday.  The flower one. So that is exciting :) Nothing better than making something from fabric you've had forever and someone wanting it.

I had to take Rusty to vet to get his stitches out. He was doing so good but now he's a little bit sore I think. He was finally getting to where he didn't leave any messes when he was laying down but they "cleaned things up" and now he's got a few little bloody spots again. When we were done we left and then a couple hours later they called and said I didn't pay. I was like oh no one said I had to pay lol. I thought it was part of my previous $600 since it was a follow up. Oh well paid over the phone another $75 sheesh.  After we left the vet I got lunch for Trevor and I and a cheeseburger for Rusty. He loved it on the way home and didn't want to get out of the car when we got there. So funny! I guess I'll have to take him for more rides.

Today we have the twins 9th birthday! Crazy they are that old already. Neither one cares one bit about me but we are going to the party anyways. I am going to bring Daniel with us. Then tonight we have the St. Patty's dinner at the clubhouse. I have about 2 more hours of messing around then I have to take a shower and get ready. I think I am going to work on getting some stuff ready for my whatnot sale next Friday for a bit.

Good morning happy FriYEAH!  

Happy St. Patrick's Day from my mom's cat! I told her she's going to need more band aid's. He's always attack loving her. 

Today I have to take Rusty to the vet at 2. He seems to have healed nicely so hopefully that's the end of that! He still has a little bit of medicine left to take but we're almost there.

Yesterday was a 2 bag sewing day. I got this Egyptian one done. It was some kind of table cover in it's former life. 

and this one was also a table cloth I think. It is the one that said 1974 on the salvage that was hemmed into it.  I have to unpick the closure inside and fish out the straight pin that I found when I was ironing it. Doh! Hate that. 

I think I put the pocket too high up on this one but it's done so just a note for myself for next time. 

I had my darts award thing last night. I ran to Costco and got a thing of cooked shrimp to take. Everyone ate them so that was good!  I think our team came in 5th place and I got about $50 in award money I think. Not too shabby. Our first game for the new season is next Tuesday.

I got the mail while I was out and cough. That's a bit embarrassing! My whatnot shopping haha. A couple were things I won so they were free though. That makes it ok right? lol

I was most excited about this stuff. I actually fell asleep watching this gal's auction last week. She just kept digging through a bin and would pull out these vintage flowers and sell them for like $3 a yard. What? Give me all of them. She was on again last night but I just caught the tail end of it so didn't buy anything. 

I'm still waiting for a package with some other fun stuff. The woman mixed up our packages and so I'm waiting patiently to receive the correct one. It says maybe today or tomorrow. 

I had one email of something to do this morning that I saved from like 3:30 yesterday. Got that done already. I got an email for the job I applied for yesterday too. It said I qualify for the job and that someone might call me for an interview if they select it for that. So that was nice! One hurdle jumped. I told my mom if I don't get this job it's a sign from God he just wants me to sew ;) Also that I might need to get a van or something to cart all this inventory to the craft shows. She said good then she can take her cart for shopping haha. (I keep telling her she can't buy anything because there is no room in the car when she goes with me ;))

Good morning happy Thursday! Today I have a potluck awards ceremony for darts! I have no food in my house so I'm going to have to run and get something after "work". Work, what a joke. But you've all heard that complaint already.

Yesterday I got a good size stack of cross body bags cut out and then got to sewing! Here is the first one. This fabric is so freaky lol. I got it in a "scrap lot" on eBay. That lot was a score for $5. I still have some smaller pieces of this but I don't think any have the woman on them.

side b

Pocket! These bags are working great to use up some of my larger pieces of fabric in my hoard too. I've been able to move some stuff around so it isn't so squished on some of my shelves.

Next up this funky flower print! I found this remnant still rolled up in a bag from the thrift store in my messy sewing room corner. Whoops. But look what I made with a .50 piece of fabric. I'm pretty sure the lining was also a thrift store purchase.

side b

pocket inside

I made this pork chop recipe last night. I probably won't make it again since I don't like frying stuff. You were supposed to beat the meat (haha) to thin it but someone used my meat mallet outside to hit rocks years ago and I never replaced it. I tried to use my rolling pin but that didn't work either. I ended up just cutting my pork chops in half. Still need to buy some veggies but found some frozen corn in the freezer lol.

I have to get dressed and go buy some tickets for the club St Patty's day dinner on Saturday. The office is only open for a bit this morning. Ack. Couldn't decide if I wanted to go or not but Scott says he'll go so I'll go get tickets.

Good morning happy Wednesday! I did my little onboarding thing for Whatnot this morning. Now I can sell there! First I need to figure out what I am going to sell for my first show. I think I might do fat quarters, people seem to like those (18x24 pieces of fabric), some buttons, maybe some ribbons and a few misc things.  If you want to sign up for whatnot you can sign up with my link and we both get $10 to spend! 

I finished all my zip bags I had going yesterday . I love how these came out, here is side A & side B

and then a bunch of misc bags 

When I got done with those I cleaned up my room a bit. Getting closer to no tubs on the floor. Some day those will all be gone (maybe haha)

I started cutting out some more cross body bags. These are kind of funky ones from fabric I had actually bought to use for bags. 

This one is as old as me. I think someone used it for a table covering or something since it was hemmed. All chopped up now.

Never fails when I change my blade

Look how crazy the snow is up north. Ski resorts can't even run since there is TOO MUCH SNOW.

I made this for lunch yesterday, so yummy. I think I was supposed to keep 2 of the crescent rolls together but hadn't printed that part of the recipe off. I think it is pretty like this. 

and Trevor made our dinner. Lacking veggies since we don't have any. I guess I should have bought more when I went shopping. It was delicious!

Ok I have 2 emails of work to do I guess I should do them ;)
