Good morning to my friends ... old and new.. that stop by for a visit .. WELCOME !!!! You know the drill .. I supply the snacks, and you enjoy them to your hearts content .. remember .. magic home -- no fat, no carbs, and no calories .. and all of the flavor and taste you can imagine !!! I made up coffee, hot cocoa, and hot tea .. all of which can be chilled if you prefer !! :) Help yourself and welcome !! :)
We also have iced for a selection of fresh iced drinks ...
Exciting day yesterday ... spent my day sewing .. sewing parts I'm scared to do .. lol lol .. but took breaks in between, (so I could breathe ...lol), and it's working out .. I ran the tacking stitches .... and then found a video on the style border that mom always taught me how to do .. and got all the way around; and now all I have to do is finish the border off, (which I'll watch the video another 15-20 times before doing it .. lol) and then I can flip it over, and start the hand stitching .. and that I can do while I'm sitting and watching TV .. :) So I'm excited about how far I got .. and how I got the corners mitered .. :) I did it without having to go for help .. :) Sooo proud of me !!! :)
After I figure this part out, (which I'll probably work on this afternoon, cuz hubby is out with mom) then I can start flipping the border over, to do the hand stitching around ... YAY !!!!! and then it will be done !!! WOOHOO !!!!! I'm thinking of doing up some of the coasters out of some of the squares, and make up batches of coasters for the raffle as well .. :) That's an easy project, and using up some of my leftovers ..:)
But that was pretty much my day ..
Spent my day sweating up a storm, finished with my tshirt covered with threads, and fabric scraps; and more threads .. lol lol .. I don't do enough of this type of thing to be comfortable after all the work of putting it together, and then having to do this .. it makes me nervous .. lol .. (and it also helps me take my time.. lol ) I want to make another one after this is all said and done .. as a gift for a friend from puppy club .. and I know that I'll be able to handle it without a problem, since it was so close to this one .. however, it will be done differently .. starting in the center and working out .. lol .. I also want to make one out of squares that mom's friend gave me .. precut quilters squares ....a while ago .. for myself .. pretty butterflies pattern ... either a quilt or new throw pillows.. mine around here are probably 20 years old, but they were made by mom .. and unfortunately I don't want to get rid of them, but they are sun faded .... such dilemmas .. but that's in the future .. :)
I sweated up a storm from nervous sweating yesterday .. lol
I did get my laundry caught up again .. so I was happy about that !!!!
Thankfully with my fingers busy, and being active; even around the house; my eating was better than I had anticipated .. I didn't want to go out anywhere, and well -- I didn't .. lol ..
I did pick on hubby .. he finished cutting the grass JUST before the storms came through... it was strong rain, and thunder; but not the winds of last week .. thankfully .. and I picked on him .. "I could HEAR the grass growing again" .. he just grumbled at me .. lol lol lol ..
I was busy enough that I slept like the proverbial dead last night .. :) That made me happy .. :)
Today, I told hubby that I'm going to check and see if my nail spa is open .. I would like to get my nails done fresh for dinner tomorrow night with my friends .. :) and their page said "may be open ... hours may vary" .. if not .. I'll go tomorrow morning .. Hubby is betting that they won't be ... and secretly I'm thinking the same, but that would be a silly bet .. lol lol .. but we're going to take a ride and check this morning .. :)
I told hubby that I was going to make up a meat loaf out of the ground meat that was in the fridge .. :) I have onion, bread crumbs and eggs .. so I'm set .. :) (not to mention secret spices .. mwaaahaahaaaa ) ..
Looking like a good day today .. and going to watch my video 15-20 times to finish up my border ... lol lol lol .. and close that up .. holding my breath once again .. lol ..
Have a wonderful day .. I'm going to !!!!!!
