|No errand to Old Navy is complete without a visit with the manequins.
|I'm the fun mom willing to take groups of preteen girls tubing. I'm thinking of becoming the boring mom who stays home and reads a book now and then.
|Sometimes I get to be the dance mom. All the double stick tape nightmares become worth it when your kid is so happy to have won.
|If only we could somehow force them to stay there for hours. Oh wait! They do that willingly. Love the water trampoline.
|Yes, Annaliese, you are adorable. As is Eva the cookiehead. These two never fail to crack me up, really.
I'll say it now - Best Cookie Mom ever. Giving up my sewing time to hang out with a bunch of girls wearing samoas on their heads. I'm living the life, hotties.
But not to be outdone by weekend crazy, I managed a few things this weekend. Behold.
|Sleeved a quilt that had been needing a sleeve for months. Attempted to hang quilt up on wall in family room, but discovered it was 14" too long for the rod in place on the wall there. Measuring is for wimps.
|Opened a package of piecing thread and needles purchased from Purple Moose. She turned me on to this thread years ago and I just can't live without it. I was running low and this made me happy.
|Things went really well with some machine quilting. And then they really didn't. So this has been fun.
|Make that lots of birds. Flying geese are my life lately.
|I like this kind of geese. They don't sing their mating songs at 3am while pooping on my front lawn.
|You know you want to bow down to me too when you see those points. Don't be shy, go right ahead.
|I made ONE block. ONE. This is my garbage can. It was empty before I started.
It's like the song goes .... "You take the good, you take the bad, you take them both, and there you have...four flying geese. And a young George Clooney." Or something like that.
Finally today, you all know how I've been drowning in pink and green scraps lately working on my first Scrap Squad assignment, right? Well, if not, there you go. I have. I can't reveal my version of the quilt yet - that will happen when it is my turn on Quilty Pleasures on Feb 28 - but I am allowed to reveal which quilt the six of us have been assigned to scrap up:
|Summer Love by Kimberly Jolly
I'll be over here picking out my quilting on my version.
