Been Feeling Blah....

for the past couple of days. Have not been crafting, really have not done anything but lay on the couch. I have a bad ankle that has been bothering me and have not been able to walk. I have to keep it wrapped or my ankle swells to the size of a baseball.

Today I decided it was time to get out of my funk. I invited my middle daughter and her husband and 2 babies and my youngest to come spend a few days with us. And this evening I made a cute little pincushion that brought my craft bug back LOL

My daughter and I went to the store this evening and bought pizza, chips, sodas and I made a salad. The hubby and boys have been playing video games all night and my daughter and I have been on the computer. The babies are sleeping in my sewing room so no more crafting tonight. Tomorrow I hope to get started on a few dottee dolls and maybe a couple more pincushions.

A very boring day.....

I was sooooo lazy :) I've spent most of the day on swap bot and have been working... very slowly....on a cotton dishcloth. I kept walking into my sewing room with intentions of creating something fun and cute and just could not get inspired to do anything. So, back to the computer I would go.

I just finished eating dinner....which hubby has still not touched as he is playing xbox live! I am getting a little irked :{ When he does decide to eat he will reheat it himself! I sound a little grumpy today :P Hopefully tomorrow will be a better day :D

I finished the quilting....

on my mother in laws quilt today!!! I cheated....I decided to finish it on the sewing machine. It was definitely harder to keep everything straight and taught, but it was alot quicker and like the look of it better. Now all I have to do is bind it.

I am very excited that I am getting a Brothers embroidery/sewing machine next month!!! Not exactly sure on what model I am getting yet as I am still not really sure on how much embroidery I will really do. You know how it just have to have some sort of machine to do this or that. I can do all kinds of things to go onto my etsy store, make for the kids, grandbabies.....but when it comes right down to it how much will I actually do LOL

Speaking of kids and grandbabies....My middle daughter and her hubby and 2 babies just left. They came over with the movie "Quarantine" If you are into scarey, creepy movies this one is for you!

Well, I am off to spend some time on my home away from home

Slowly Getting Set Up

So today I decided to join the blog wagon. I really enjoy reading others blogs and seeing the awesome things that they make. And hope that others will enjoy reading my ramblings and watch the progress of whatever my current project is.

Today I am was suppose to have a little crafting get together, but my friend has a sick child so I will spend my day working on hand quilting a blanket for my mother-in-law. I have been working on this darn thing since November and am ready to be done with it.

Well, guess that is all. Am off to get sewing and check on the corn beef I have cooking :)
