Life has definitely taken me to places I never thought I would go to....but nothing more exciting than where I am right now! Welcome to my world...

Time is still flying... my "College boy" is starting school tomorrow... :o)
























HAve been sewing....but not my favorite kind. Just finished another "hero"bag... made from an old set of BDU's for a dear sister who is retired military. Started another one for my Dsonin laws MOM. Had to post that some sewing is going on although not much quilting. Found out that the Bernina I bought from an auction house back a month or so ago... the bobbin winder is broken. So guess I will be buying a sidewinder for a while. Have added a few photos of my little curtain projects. They were very simple but will work in a pinch...and the price...as in free was great. My DD in law gave me some of her sewing "trash" which worked for the sheers and the other pointed things were leftovers from a dining area we had 6 years ago..JUst cut them down. Have suffered a setback in STUDIO LAND, we thought we were going to be able to put in a new ceiling in the STUDIO, but when the young contractor quoted me over 1000 dollars to put up the beadboard paneling I had already bought and paid for.... I said no thanks. That was just too much at this time. Being the mother of invention..... I went to the 1.00 table at Walmart fabric dept. and bought all the white fabric they had on the table. So we will be installing a simple fabric ceiling. That way, no electrician has to come and drop lights... or lower the fan box.... and so hope to get that started next week or so. It is a SHED aka, STUDIO, but still a shed. And after the new roof....we are nearing the insurance value of this place. Besides,the ceiling was to help with dust from the rafters.... decided that fabric will catch it as well as the paneling. Other than a spot of sewing and a little organizing, had to post the more organized kitchen shelf, least used items at top...way up high in cupboard, does anyone know the name of the glasses on middle shelf.... think they are from the 60's maybe, they are covered in a plastic... with the white swirls for decoration. I love them...but the plastic does peel off...found that out with the Princess's dad...chewing the rim of glass and peeling off bits and pieces. Other than this, not too much going on in my world.I seem to catch the princess with the strangest faces. She is really a lovely little girl. But she does make me laugh!! Had to add a photo of the THREE STOOGES... who had fun with their glow necklaces on the 4th of July watching the fire works. Then the WEE ONE who is not so WEE anymore......They sure do change quickly.... it seems that I'll be making quilts for college any day now! Hope you all had a great week. I sure did. Off to Nashville next week to the quilt show. Hope I can find a longarm and get some good ideas.

Wish the Professor well and hopefully he'll get to class without HotWheels cars in his binder, again. =) Love the sheers. I really like that quilt in the background of the top picture. ~jen~

Wish I knew what those glasses on the shelf were called. I remember them though.
Hope the fabric ceiling works. Someday you'll be able to get ther real one put up I'm sure. And I agree with The Jen, love the quilt. :-)

I love how you can stick pictures of your projects, organization skills, and all your grandkids in the same post!

Those sheers and 'pointy' things look pretty darned good from here.
I bet your fabric ceiling will be just fine.

What a cute baby! Love the hero bags!

The kid photos are great! I love catching all those facial expressions on camera, and the kids love it as they get older.

All those sewing projects are less satisfying than a quilt, but you get lots of them done and can cross them off the list. Hoorah! the camo purse is really nifty.

The bag you made is very neat. I love the quilt in the background, it is very pretty!

The children in the pictures look very sweet!

Have a Nice Day!

I got a big chuckle out of the expression on the face of the Princess. What a doll!

Oh my gosh, pretty babies!!!
I love the hero bag, I have more BDUs than any one person needs and I really need to sit down and make some stuff with them. Thanks for reminding me I have them stuffed away in a corner somewhere. : )
