Day Late and a Dollar Short

What is happening...
It seems like I am never on time for anything. On July 1, 2010 I started my blog. It is so weird to have been blogging for a year. I have had so much fun with it. I have really enjoyed reading other peoples blog and have made some great bloggy friends. I have won prizes and I have learned more about the art of quilting. I am very grateful for the Internet and this chance I have to be around so talented ladies and gentlemen who will not roll there eyes at me when I say I LOVE FABRIC!!! I am getting some stuff together to have a give away to celebrate my blogaversary. I hope to be back in a few days to have some goodies for someone to win!!

(This is a wall hanging I made last year)

We have had a very busy and wonderful 4th of July weekend. We went to a birthday party of a friend of my husbands. They were high school buddies. It is cool to get in touch with people you have not seen in forever and it feels like it was just yesterday when you said goodbye. Saturday we went to a dessert/fireworks get together with the company my husband works for. We had a great time there. Sunday we had a BBQ at a brother-in-laws house with great food and great family. Monday I gathered a bunch of nieces and nephews (and their moms and dads) to go to a nearby town that my brother's company had set up an animal petting zoo. The kids had a great time. My brother set us up with free pony ride for all the little ones.

Now today I am just relaxing and cleaning and laundry and sewing and taking care of a new puppy and helping my daughter with a bird and watering the grass and watering my flower beds and cooking dinner...wait didn't the first part of this sentence say I was relaxing, what happened. LOL!! I just am trying to get back on some kind of a schedule. I love being free with my time but then I get nothing done.

I did mention a bird my daughter has. My parents found it in there camper last week when we went camping. DD#2 has been caring for it, feeding it about every 45 minutes day and night, since Sunday last week. So for 10 days she has been a mommy to a baby sparrow. She has named it Trouble Maker. It has been great watching it grow.

What I accomplished...
Nothing but spending great amounts of time with my family and that beats sewing any day!
Sewing thought...
How often do you get to sew? For me right now not much. I did not get any finishes done and I did not finish the top of my Le Petite. I feel bad but not enough to worry about. I just feel off the horse and now I am getting back on.

Sewing Goals...
To many to count. But for today I would like to just get organized again. Then we will see what happens. oh yes, I would love to get the rest of the give away figured out!


  1. Oh, relish that time you had with family and friends and self! Your daughter has a gift - those little birds are very hard to raise by humans. Re-organizing is a good way to get back into things - I do it upon occassion just to keep things rolling on time.

  2. Thank you for visiting my blog! Sounds like you had a wonderful 4th. Have a great rest of the week! :-)
