Sewing, Homeschooling and Craziness

Writer’s Block Take 2!

BLAH!!!!!!!!!! Yep…. I have it again. Stinking writer’s block. (insert mumbling here)

I haven’t sewn much the past couple of days. Yesterday was an out and out war between my machine and myself. GRRR!! I won that battle (with some help from The Hubby).  It was rattling something awful and I was trying to take it apart and figure it out. The Hubby took it apart even more and eventually found an arm had detached from….. something… He put it back on and it works again! SHEW!

I broke 3 needles yesterday trying to sew through thick layers of fleece. SIGH… I was using  100/16 titanium needles, I guess I need some bigger than that.

It’s been very rainy and cool here the past few days. BLECK!!!! Definitely hot chocolate weather, though!

I went to church yesterday morning to listen to the missionaries. Afterward we had lunch and the Seniors on Mission group and I packed bags for Bags of Hope and Love! YAY!! The lady that is taking over for me wants to go with me the next time I drop bags off. I think I will have to make that my last official day as the leader of it here since I need to start focusing on moving and finishing up Halloween projects. But I am looking forward to starting a new group in Georgia!!  I was reading the library’s site for that county and they have a once a week meeting for sewists! YAY!! Maybe I can them interested in it, too!!

I think I will turn over all the donations to her that day, too. Well, I think I will take the donations made directly to me with me to start the group in Georgia, any donations that were from church members will remain here for this group. Do you think that sounds good? Or should I just leave all the donations and start from scratch?

I started a new book today. For Paperback Swap members, it’s for a swap. 😉 You all know I never read swap books until they are picked!! For nonPBSers, swaps are little games on that members can play. Usually a game has a theme and all books revealed must meet certain guidelines pertaining to that theme. I usually do a Halloween swap every year but I have to sit this year out with the move and all. :/ You should all check them out if you love to read!!! PBS is my favorite site in the whole world! Well, except for my blog. 😉 You have to be a member to view the games forum but it is sooooo worth it! You trade books for FREE!!! All you pay is shipping costs to mail out a book you already own to another member that has requested it. Most often it only costs a few dollars to mail one book and you get a credit to the site to order a book for yourself that is then shipped to you by another member that then earns a credit for his or herself for mailing the book to you! LOL  AND you can also buy credits to order books… I have done that QUITE often…. I have a book hoarding problem…. And no, thank you, I do not want to join a 12 step program for it. 😉 Let me have my book and fabric addictions, please! LOL

OH!! I got another great Bzz campaign from Bzz Agent!! This one is for Gorton’s fish. I received a coupon for a free box, a spatula with Gorton’s on the handle and some coupons to hand out to friends.  I love free stuff. LOL Even if I don’t like it someone in this house is bound to! LOL The Hubby and 3 of the 5 kids LOVE seafood.  Too bad I don’t get any points for adding this in my post!! LOL Sometimes you do and sometimes you don’t. No biggie, I love Bzz Agent anyway. 😉 And I always give my honest opinion of something whether I’m asked to or not. 😉

Let’s see… We need some pictures don’t we?? No blog post is complete without pictures!!!

All of these come from LOLCats

OK…. Now we have pictures! I can consider this a correct blog post… LOL

OH! I forgot to name the book I just started! LOL It is Cake on a Hot Tin Roof (A Piece of Cake Mystery, Bk 2) by Jacklyn Brady.

Cake on a Hot Tin Roof (Piece of Cake, Bk 2)

The first one was very good! I hope this one is, too!

I had to put down Casual Vacancy by JK Rowling so that I can read and mail the swap book before we move. I still have 2 other swaps with books floating around in it! YILES!!



Comments on: "Writer’s Block Take 2!" (16)

  1. That didn’t seem like writer’s block to me! That book looked good ( 95% of what I read is mysteries), let me know. And don’t worry if you do get writer’s block, the next secret subject swap is in the works.

      I read a little bit of everything but I do read a lot of mysteries! 😉

    Stacy, Just pray for the Holy Spirit to reveal the right pathway in regards to the money. You will know.
    If this is writers’ block, keep getting it. Great post.
    Just love the animal pictures. Leo and Seraphena (dog and cat respectively) enjoy them as well.
    Love, Regena

    • stacysewsandschools said:

      THANK YOU, Regena!!!!! You always know how to redirect my thoughts to where they should be!!
      LOL about the dog and cat!!! 🙂

  4. What a nice shout out for PBS there, Stacy. lol And FYI, I thought the book was a good follow-up to A Sheetcake Named Desire.

    • stacysewsandschools said:

      OOH! Good!! Thanks, Lori!!!! I was hoping it would live up to the first one.
      Now I just need to hope my books go out soon in the other 2 swaps! LOL

  5. Unfortunately, the dog ‘studying’ pic is me right now, lol!! Thanks for the laugh:) I’m so glad you were able to get someone to take over Bags of Hope and Love there for you!

  6. Stacy, Writer’s block is when your last post was…the secret swap!! That’s me :(. I’m glad to read your sewing machine is up and roaring again. I just did surgery on mine from using baby powder and leather…Ugh. You’ve got a lot of things juggling in that world of yours; I’m sending you smiles and a big “You can do it!” When in doubt, read, read, read!

    • stacysewsandschools said:

      Thank you SOOOOO much, Michele!!!
      Glad the surgery on your machine was successful! YILES!!!
      Thankfully, the writer’s block looks to be gone now. I am in the process of writing a doozy! LOL
