A look at what I’ve been up to….

The background piece is a quilt in progress. All of it is being constructed from recycled materials. Mostly jeans.

The top two bags are brand new material I had laying around. Both are lined in a sunny yellow. Laying by my machine right now is a floral bag ready to be adorned with butterflies.

I said sometime back I would post pictures of some of the things I make. I finally made myself stop and take some shots before the pieces were gone. I rarely keep anything I make.  I also tend to make only things that can be used. I am not a big fan of fancy pillows. The bags I make are to replace plastic bags at the store with style. So many uses they have!

What’s been keeping you busy!?

*Please go  here and read yesterday’s winning entry too! (Thanks Spo!)

And the runner up in the Valentine’s Day contest to woo the socks off my feet was Katie from Confessions of a Young Married Couple! Go visit her today and congratulate her. She has a wonderful little blog!

Katie’s submission:

I met my husband when we were 15 years old. I took a class just so I could meet him. We dated throughout high school and then went to different colleges. We dated all four years of college long distance, and the summer before we graduated, he proposed on the ice skating rink in Rockefeller Center. I cried. And then fell down. And then cried some more. 3 and a half years of happiness later, we are expecting our first baby in the spring. Its a boy, and I know that I will have the same love affair with him, too. Just like with his Daddy.

Not everyone gets to be married to their best friend. I guess I’m just lucky like that. ❤

If Only I’d Have Known

This time, like all times, is a very good one, if we but know what to do with it. Ralph Waldo Emerson

Wouldn’t it be nice if we could think now how wonderful it is to be here rather than later look back upon now and think oh how wonderful it was? I try to keep with that, remind myself that these are the best years of my life and I should savor them. Because I already look back a few short years and wish I were there again. There is no sense in living in the past.



Weekend Review

Whew!

I am so glad I survived the weekend. It was sketchy there for a minute or two!

I stole this from Strelitzia, Arrrg!

Friday began slow but around noon I decided to get off the couch and fix the tub faucet and folks it was all downhill from there. Don’t believe e-How for  a minute when they tell you how simple fixing your leak will be. I started at noon and two trips to the hardware store and three pizzas later (no I shared the pizzas) it was six o’clock and the leak was fixed. Oh and all the water that had run from the second floor to the basement was sopped up. Then Saturday morning I discovered that the dehumidifier was toast and all those wet walls and such were drying at a snails pace so that had to be torn apart and replaced.  Add this to the broken recliner and we have ourselves a set of three’s. Did you ever notice that things happen in threes? They do.

There is a bright side. The mercury got all  the way up to the fifties this weekend. I about went into shock! So we threatened the kids, well at least the older ones, that they were going to be lazy good for nothing lumps if they didn’t get their shoes on and off we went to the lake to catch some fish. Here is where I toot my own horn. I was the only one to catch a fish. And I did it all by my self, from hooking it to landing it to slipping it back into the water. Usually hubby is on the side lines coaching me on what to do but not this time, I had it all under control!

So how was your weekend?

*You know you only have a few days to enter the contest right!?



A Must See

I found another site I just love.

I would love to meet the creator. He weaves a story of a lady at a bus stop and how he fantasizes a conversation with her only to have her actually speak to him and go no where.

He thinks a lot like me and I have to wonder sometimes if we all don’t think that way, we’re just to scared to show it.

I once heard that on average humans think of sex at least four times in an hour. I often wonder who does these tests and what purpose they serve. There must be a reason we need to know these things.

Maybe we are bored?

Well then click the link and go exploring, you won’t be bored anymore.
