I did 'straighten out' the sewing room again...does anyone else have to do that once in a while? It if gets too messy I end up not wanting to go in there and sew! I cannot stand a mess and it does get real messy! I do realize that is hurting myself by not going in there, not doing something I really enjoy, but just swish that thought out of my mind and read a book...I just finished Danielle Steele's book, Rogue, it was OK...Years ago I loved all her books. Now I am not that interested in them for some reason...they do not have the zest they used to as far as I am concerned..they seem a lot alike..one book to the next. I did make another quilt top using Firefighter fabrics...I had fun doing it...now I will quilt it.
I am going to start on another project..have to decide what...I have to be 'in the mood' to do it...I am doing Judy L's Star BOM that started today! I also am looking for fabrics that are country and fun at the same time...to use in a stitchery project....when I find it I will let you know what it is..One thing that is great is because I am not able to drive for a long period or walk at least I enjoy being here and sewing, quilting, doing stitchery or reading...maybe next time I post I will show some pictures of what I have made so far...not much but it is nice to have pictures isn't it!!

I am making a quilt with fabric I purchased from the Fat Quarter Shop..Strawberry Lemonade is the fabric line....Woody loves the bright colors so he gave me such a hard time while sewing this...he was always right on top of the fabric...I would lock him in the bedroom and he would find a way to open the door. Well the top is done...and here is a portion of it...with him on it..it might just be his little quilt because if he is not locked in the bathroom, when I have this out to work on, he is snuggling up to it! This is what I have been doing. I will post a picture of it when it is completed...all by it's lonesome self...as long as Woody is held by my hubby...so he won't be in the picture...cats...love them but pain in the butts....they love fabric!

My Friday is so far NOT motivated at all..I am sitting here watching an experienced rug cleaner fix my rug! We brought home groceries, placed the bags on the carpet in the living room and what a surprise we got! A bottle of Clorox Clean-Up had leaked into the bag, and onto the carpet, and bleached a circle in the carpet! We learned a valuable lesson, put the grocery bags immediately in the kitchen, on the counters on floor!
This nice gentleman, Len, is going to do some spot cleaning for me too! Now that we have no 'visitors' with us~ we are back to setting up our little abode for the two of us and the rugs will be clean..when you have your two sons here to 'visit' at different times you are extremely happy to have them~ and also do a happy dance when they leave as you can see what you have to do to clean up! One was into Kool-Aid, nachos and salsa, chili! The other was into Red Bull~Italian sauce and meatballs...next place is having tile everywhere so if we ever have 'visitors' we can wash the floors!!!
I have accomplished nothing this past week! Sad but true!! My sewing machine is at the cleaning doctor..getting its' yearly cleaning/tune up. I have another machine to use as back up and can pull it out...so I am going to go do that now! Have a great day!!!

I am really bummed today. I have been sick with a stomach virus for the past three days! I wanted to go to Yvonne's dad's wake this afternoon. I was just too sick to go. My daughter and her husband are going..Yvonne is my best friend. I know what it is like loosing your dad (my dad passed away May of 2006) and wanted to go for her as well as for me to say good bye to a wonderful, generous, caring, loving, patient....great father, husband, grand father, great-grandfather! He has gone on to heaven for sure! When I was in the company of Yvonne's parents they were always so vibrant and welcoming! Yvonne is just the same way!We have raised our children together but now I live about 25 miles away from her..sigh..and driving for me is tough most of the time so I do not see her much. We still keep in touch via Internet, phone and once in a while visits. I thank God for finding such a nice friend!
Off to get some more rest..oh and go to HFC'S record company and check out my son's new CD that is coming out March 11! I have to be honest..this music is not my cup of tea..hehehe..but I am so proud! Christopher is touring and playing and happy..Maybe your kids would be interested or even know who they are...we did buy some Cd's and will see them when they come to Nashua at the end of the month!
For those of you wondering what Woody is up to, well he is now getting tired of his food, wants shrimp and is aggravated! His ruff is growing quite nicely, but it is funny it curls when it gets wet and he reminds me having Santa's beard! Woody will be 2 years old May 31! He must weight 17 lbs! We measured his body length and yes he is 29"! We had to measure him because he does not fit in his post where he likes to sleep..time for a huge one if they sell them!!!
