He's so very good, never complaining, or asking why it is I needed that fabric. We'll just have to strike a deal.
I wont ask about RC cars, video games, guitars or computer equipment if you wont ask me about fabirc.
And I PROMISE to hurry up and get stuff done and put into my Etsy shop... I promise. Really. Just take baby for an hour so I can get to it!
A slightly, on purpose, wonky log cabin mini quilt to hang on the receiver's sewing room wall.
Although, i'm not sure just home much time she spends at her sewing machine. Since retiring, I think she is too busy.
It was hard to give this one up! I may need to make another like it for my walls. Oh how my list of "to do" grows...The other birthday girl you ask? She received this lovely framed picture of her rooster, King Kong, to hang in her almost-finished new house.
So I finally dissected the lower cabinet. They were EVERYWHERE! In the flour canister...with a lid locked tight. In a bag of whole wheat flour...in the cornmeal...in a bag of regular flour...see the little guy in the last photo there? Ew! I know they are in there, unhatched, anyways...and we eat them like that...but still, I can't stand the thought of them crawling around in my grain.
After I had pulled everything out and opened it, and went back to the bags, I found this guy crawling along the top of the Albertson's flour bag. Now, don't you think if a bag says it's good until April 2009 that the bugs shouldn't hatch until after then???? This one looks as if he was thinking about going back inside, but then changed his mind.
I went to remove this one off of the brown sugar canister...but wait, it was still there when the paper towel came away. IT WAS INSIDE OF A SEALED CANISTER! Like the kind that have a hitching-lock-mechanism-y-thing. Since when do grain bugs get into brown sugar? I guess they are everywhere.
Needless to say, I tossed it all. All except the sugar. I had poured that out of a bag and watched to make sure nothing was in there. Still, i'm sorely tempted to empty it. So, we're starting anew. The shopping list now has flour, cake flour, corn starch, corn meal, sugar, powdered sugar, brown sugar, etc... all added to it.
On a much more pleasant note, look what my wonderful husband brought me today! We had just had a conversation last week about how he could bring home flowers once in awhile, and he said to me...I have thought about it on so many occasions, but you had said they just die, so you'd rather not. I was like...don't ever listen when a woman tells you flowers are not a big deal. So, his first trip out to Costco without me (I like Costco flowers) he brings these home. Apparently, tulips are very hard to find in October. But, for a city whose leaves still haven't turned, why not find tulips out of season.
Speaking of the season, go here to see our trip to the pumpkin patch. On a side note, i'm having issues fixing color between my monitor and printer...so if the pictures look really bad, it's because they look perfect on my messed on computer monitor. Let me know about that.
...to Pigtails and Snails and enter to win this quilt. Of course, additional entries for blogging about it and posting the nifty button to your side bar on your blog. How can you resist? More on the crafting front from me soon. I just need to find some time for myself! But I have been busy with the help of Grandma and her attention to the little guy.
And, look...I got shelves in my nooks. I even got them decorated. But I don't like how I did the one of the left side of the room...so no pictures just yet. I need to work on it. I was going to hang the picture frames on the shelves, but I really like them sitting there. I am suppose to have another shelf in each nook, but I kind of just like it how it is. So I might just leave it. I need to make some new stuff to hang in the card holder on the wall there. Those are old Christmas cards I made last year and I really don't care for them. I should make little quilt cards or hang some of my sewing photography. It will always be a work in progress.
