What is a girl to do when her trusty sewing machine needs a little tune-up? Was I really expcected to go with-out a machine for 3 weeks? Don't worry, my lovely Mom lent me her's:) She has a Hobby Pfaff and it treated me quite nicely. But soon enough Mom asked for it back and my machine wasn't done yet. I was going through withdrawls as my projects started stacking up.

In the meantime I was ending my seasonal employment with this company, so life was about to slow down a ton. Luckily I got a call and Bob (that is what I named my singer) was done! Right in time!

The day after I was done working, it was just the girls and me since J was working, so I whipped these up from one of my old t-shirts that Reese loves. I got the idea here.

I LOVE this blog and get so many ideas from it.

I also got 2 new patterns online, this one and this one. I love that both of these are made from scrap fabric. The ideas are endless.
Wish me luck, un-employment leaves me with tons of time and not very much money...Time to get creative:)

Well hello there...Can you imagine, a beautiful sunny day and munchkins with Grandma and Grandpa? What are parents to do? Well...we decided to escape to the moutains. We tried to go cross country skiing on the Mount Tahoma trail, but considering not much snow there, that didn't happen. So, we just went a little further into Paradise. This was only the 2nd time I have been there in my life and I was thrilled to get to take it all in.
Now you must know that Jason and I are not exactly experienced cross counrty skiiers, so there was a LOT of trial and error. I mean, falling, stand up, be out of control and fall again. Did I mention to try and not pee our pants while we watched eachother splay all four prior to bouncing off of the ice hard snow? By the end of the day we at least figured out how to stop without having to bail sideways:) My butt was very thankful!
If you are ever looking for something to do that includes excercise and watching your husband look completely out of control while you laugh so hard you get a belly ache, this is for you!

Hey everyone...On my last post, there was some random person posting a comment. I noticed this a couple of posts back as well. Does anyone know how I delete them? Do I need to go private? Or is this normal? Thanks:)

Sweet friends baking sweet cookies

All these sweet kiddos were over at my house a couple of weeks ago and I thought, "What are we to do?". It had gotten dark out, so they had all come in from playing in the back yard. I decided Sarah and I should let them bake cookies. They were so cute all lined up in a row waiting their turn to do things. Mind you, I am very organized and NOT messy, so this is always a stretch for me, but it went off without a hitch and the cookies were devoured:) We love you Kelly's!
