actually... I don't really care that it's Friday... my days are the same no matter what (although I do love Mondays so that I can watch 24!) But William loves the weekends, so that is fun for me.

Well, go ahead and get excited nieces and nephews... look what I'm packing up to send you guys. Woo-Hoo! Late Easter gifts and other stuff. You can thank Alyssa... she's growing so much Mom says I better mail the onesie... so I'm just sending it all.
There's even a little something in there for you Mom. Sorry Judy. Sorry Dad. :(

Picked up the girls photos today and bought the extras... so no need to fist fight this time... Sharon! Liz!... there's plenty for everyone.
I got this 16X20 for $20... what a bargain. I love it!!!

Hancock fabrics had patterns on sale today so I got some. I know... I keep buying them for me and never making them.... but I'm determined to have at least two things made for ME by the end of next week. We'll see.
Maybe I should get a prize if I do it??? hmmmmmm

funny... I just talked to Mom and she was heading to Hancocks to buy some patterns, too.

Maybe she'll find some of this Mickey and Minnie Mouse fabric I need more of....
I hope so!

I want to make the kids matching outfits and I only got Ella's and 1/2 of Lucy's cut out before I ran out of fabric. My Hancocks has none and none online either. Bummer!

This is what I worked on last night. It was really fun! These will all be made into hooded towels for my etsy store. I hope they sell but if they don't then they will just go to the babies. The dinosaur one I made with Lina in mind. Isn't it cute???

Next project: P.J's for William- he is way too tall for all his old ones.
I got the Bart Simpson today- just need Megan to make me a Bart applique for the t-shirt! A little trivia: Which ones are William's favorite?
answer at the bottom

Then... tell me how you feel about this knit. I got it for $2 a yard at Wally World and I LOVE it! the colors, the feel... it's perfect... but am I too old and fat to wear this... honestly. Tell me what you think.

So now I just have to wait for the chenille that I ordered from so that I can make my foxes and bees! I have all the fabric just waiting. Come on fabric... come in the mail today!

So... the girls are sleeping. I'm gonna chill out with my cats, cut out William's jammies and watch the two episodes of AFV (America's Funniest Home Videos) I tivoed. Man... I seriously love that show... and can not watch it without thinking about Tonya Murray. I wish she was at my house watching it with me. I haven't seen her in ages.

I was gonna garage sale these chairs... but Pooke and Sara love them. Aren't they adorable?

Have a great weekend!
oh... his favorite fabric is the blue and orange tiger one.

I love the Lina towel, and your girls are adorable as always. Your blog is looking awesome these days!

Mom said...

I love the picture, they look adorable as always. Can't wait to get mine. I bought like 13 patterns and only one piece of fabric. Pink panther fabric for Miss Emma Daisy. So cute. I got my package from today. The electricity came back on about 8:30pm. The towels are greatness. All of them. Like the panther and uk best.
