I'm back from my unplanned blog break (no internet connection for 3 days). It was enough to drive me nuts! I've missed you guys.
I got caught up on my sewing job which is a huge relief.
I am doing a hand quilting marathon....trying to get this quilt done before my trip to MN at the end of the month. It's a full size quilt. But you already know that I am crazy. I guess this is proof if there was any shred of doubt.
My daughter has a bad cold and 3 teeth coming in. She is miserable. Therefore the rest of us are miserable. It's been a rough couple of days on the parenting front.
I made a new pillowcase for my 4 year old....he got it less than a week after his birthday, so we were all pretty happy with that. This is my compromise to decorating a room around a theme/character....we change pillowcases on a whim (as their tastes change), but the rest of the boys' room is a pretty basic boy room. No character bedding, etc. Pillowcases are my one concession. It works out pretty well. Dinosaurs are a big hit around here these days.
I also made these bars. I highly recommend them. They are good for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack, anytime really.
I also made some of this....also good. My second try was much more to my liking than the first. It's a tough pill to swallow...I've made fun of people for making their own granola. Now here I am doing it....hmm.
I want to try to make a wardrobe of skirts for this summer, but I am not a garment sewer...yet. I like the looks of this skirt a lot.
Can you tell that I've missed blogging? So there is your earful...hopefully it will be back to normal around here soon.
