Memorial Day

Memorial Day weekend was wonderful. To fast and not long enough. We drove 5 hours to Cannon Beach, OR. It was so beautiful.

These are rock by Haystack Rock. It is getting close to sundown and we walked out to haystack rock. To bad it was high tide. Otherwise we could have walked out to it and see all the sea creatures that live there.

We went all over. We flew kites at the beach, went to the Tillamook cheese factory. Oh my gosh CHEESE. I died and went to heaven.

I do have to say the worst thing happened on the trip. The first morning. I got up before everyone else and since they were all sleeping I thought I would take a shower before they all woke up and then I would start breakfast. Then the unthinkable happend. My bad ankle gave out and I fell. Right there in front of the camp. So the rest of the trip I was called gimpy. My ankle swelled up and hurt that nothing else. I decided to endure to have a good weekend. It was good. Fun and painful. Oh well take the good with the bad.

So at the end of the weekend I was shopping I went into a fabric store looking for some nice fabric to make a purse and 40 minutes later I walked out with 2 wall hanging quilts to make. (Take in to consideration I have never quilted in my life). Man, I am not sure how it happened. Brian assured me I did decide to buy them on my own. It must have been some kind of time warp or alternative universe thing. While in the shop I have all the powers of sewing then I walk out and am like oh my gosh how did that happen. Well I guess we will have to see what happens. I will keep you all posted. I will take pictures of the kits before I get started.

I hope you all had a fun and relaxing weekend.

Mother's Day

I know it was almost a week ago. But this picture is worth the wait. My parents went camping that weekend so my brother and I went up to see them on Saturday to do the Mother's day thing and gorge ourselves on all kinds of junk food. So afterwards it starts to rain and we all scramble to take all the camping gear inside my parents camper and my dad takes the propane tank off the stove and well you can see for yourself.

We now call him the probane bomber. I have never seen this before. I thought it was worth a look at. Have a good day.

Crazy Days and What They Produce

Some days seem very hectic and crazy and I am amazed at what I am able to accomplish on those days. Like today for example. I stayed up way to late last night or very early this morning. But I was still able to make it to work have lunch with a friend go shopping, line a bag for my mom for mother's dayFinish up a towel for my embroidery swap and still spend time with my husband and animals. Then on other day when I get all the sleep I want I can not get anything accomplished. Who knows why we have days like that.

Anyone else have days like those?


Larger Than Life

My new project for the week is the Larger Than Life Bag from Interweave Crochet I have joined CAL

This has been a really fun project but the bag is really larger than life. It is HUGE! I have made the lining now I just have to attach it. The lining I love so much I do not want to cover it up with the bag but then I want to use the bag. I am so torn.

I will probably insert the bag for the lining and then just make another lining to have as a bag. I love the fabric. Well off to bed I am a tad sleepy.

Time Gets Away

Time sure does get away from you. Last thing I remember we were ramping up for tax season and now it is all over and I have done way to many craft projects to even count. I will post a few the rest can be seen at Flickr
Today was just one of those days when you look in the mirror and you say to yourself SELF why do you still have the same haircut since I don't know the beginning of time. So I marched into the bathroom took the scissors I use to cut my husbands hair and chopped my hair to make some bangs and a little on the side to decide how short i want it before I go in and have it chopped. I have grown out my hair to the middle of my back so tomorrow I plan on going in and having it chopped to my shoulders. Then I will have it dye dark brown. I hope I like it. It is just hair right? Oh please tell me right!

I have gone to another baby shower this week it must be in the water! Yikes must drink more soda. Water gets you preggers. It was a long shower come on 2 hours of games the whole shower was 4 hours. I was so ready to die. They had a guess the poo game it was so gross. They put gross disgusting things in diapers and we were suppose to figure out what it was by looking and smelling it. I nearly gagged. Hopefully no one else is will have a baby for at least 2 months.

I have been part of a tea towel swap on crafters. We each send one towel out to 6 people each person stitches on it and sends it on to the next person. It has been great fun.

Apron for Joolz

That is a small recap of what I have been up to. I hope to update more often.
