Inspiring Blog Award


Very Inspiring Blogger Award




OMGOSH!! An AWARD!! You like me, you realllllly like me! (Sorry, but I love Sally Field. LOL)

I great big, GINORMOUS THANK YOU to The Menopausal Mother for bestowing this award upon me! I am very honored!



As with any blog award, there comes a set of rules:
1.  Display award image on your blog page.
2.  Link back to the person who nominated you.
3.  State 7 facts about yourself.
4.  Nominate 15 other bloggers for the award.
5.  Notify the bloggers that they have been nominated and link to their posts.



7 Facts About Me –

1 – I am a bit of a goofball. Bet you didn’t guess THAT! 😉

2 – I am an EXTREMELY picky eater. I was never made to eat anything I didn’t like. I HATE it when The Hubby tries to get me to taste stuff he KNOWS I won’t like! If it smells bad I won’t go near it! LOL

3 – The only bone I have ever broken was my nose.

4 – I have had surgery 3 times.

5 – I reallllly want a tattoo, I just can’t make up my mind about exactly what I want and where. I guess you could say I want several tattoos but I’m not sure I could go through with it several times! LOL I don’t exactly like needles. BLECK!!!!

6 – I am a major chocoholic. Everything is better with chocolate. 😉

7 – I have blue eyes but they turn green when I am really tired or very sick, basically when they are very bloodshot! LOL

Sew Quiet Lately


I am so sorry for not posting the last few days. I have been having a little quiet time. Well, as quiet as can be with 4 kids in the house… LOL   I have a few projects in the works that I will be sharing in the next few days. My cousin Sandra over at Rivas & Co. has hired me to refashion a t-shirt into a short-all (plus a couple of other things) and I will be sharing that tutorial with you shortly. It’s going to be SOOOO cute!! 🙂

I stopped at the tiny local fabric shop yesterday to pick up same navy thread (for the short-all) and while I was there I grabbed a couple  more than a couple of things…. LOL

They have a couple of baskets on the counter and everything in them is 50 cents!! I grabbed a bottle of Fray Check and a few appliques. YAY!


New Fabric - Paris


I bought 2 fat quarters of Paris Ville by Michael Miller. Very cute but when I got home I noticed that the grain line runs so that the print would be sideways instead of the way it is pictured now. WEIRD!!


New Fabric - Robert Kaufman


I bought  1 1/2 yards of this Robert Kaufman print. It was just SO cute!!!!! I’m thinking a spring outfit for Cailey!



New Fabric - Yellow Floral


This is a remnant piece, maybe 1/2 a yard. It’s nice and thick, perfect for a purse or maybe a tote.



New Fabric - Western

This is just a tiny piece, about 12″ x 43″, but I think it will make a perfect book cover for my Dad.

Speaking of my Dad, yesterday was his 60th Birthday!! YAY!! There were many times that we didn’t think he would make it to 60. He has so many health problems. He was supposed to be on his way to visit us but has been delayed by a massive migraine that has lasted 3 days so far. Keep him in your prayers, please.





IF he can make it down here he can look forward to the cake we got for him. (If I can keep the kids out of it long enough. LOL)  I asked for a western theme and this is what they gave me. :/ Not bad but not what  I was expecting, either. That’s what happens when you only have 2 grocery stores to choose from and no real bakeries!!!  LOL



Like I said, I have some project in the works and some study units I need to get together. The posts will be coming, I promise!!  I guess I just needed a little down time after Jacob left. I miss him so much and the time just seems to fly by when he is here.
