Still crazy busy.....
I am turning into a horrible summer blogger..There has just been so many things to do that I don't seem to have the time!!! It's a good thing though, because I am having fun again and it seems like a really long time since that was the case. I am getting ready to move, the kids are getting ready to go back with mom and dad and I started a new, better job. I have made some new friends and am getting out of the house more and enjoying the sun and the weather. I still am sad about the kids, but I am feeling good about how things are going. I pray a lot to have peace in my heart about it and I am getting it....I haven't made any art a or fabric projects since I finished my apron for the Mama Mia Apron Swap...I got it finished and mailed out on Monday so I am going to post it because I am sure my swap partner has it now....I had fun embellishing it...I also made her an embellished pot holder, sent her some yummy candle melts, cocktail napkins, a coffee recipe and a summer cookbook...She said in her survey she likes pink and black so I used a Washington shop hop fabric for the main part...It is pink rhododendrons on a white background, then I used a black shirting type of fabric. My lovely model is Steve my brother in law...if you look close you can see him waving the potholder around too!!! I wanted Julie to model and she didn't want her picture taken so we coerced Steve into taking the job...He is so pretty in it...I got a great new apron from my partner too...I will post it tomorrow after I get a picture in it...Valerie from http://yarnigras.blogspot.com tagged me a while ago to tell seven little known things about me so here I go...I hope none of these are repeats....
1# I flunked home EC sewing ( I hated it with a passion)
2#I love high heels and wear them everywhere..by high, I mean two and a half inches and up...if I am not in heels, it is flip flops.
3# I am still self conscious about my art work, I always am surprised when people want it.
4# my friends and I put a skunk in our high school on Halloween and it shut the school down for three days to air it out. It was on Paul Harvey. (the radio show) We never got caught.
5#I played the saxophone for years and probably still could play, I think.
6#I like older men.....
7# I love to dance...love, love, love it. Once I start, it is hard to stop!
Now to tag some players...mmmmmm Patti at Magpies nest, Lorraine, Tonya, Andrea and Sanna......Tell us all about you!
