David's Haul

David is almost 3 and has been in the 3-year-old room at daycare quite a bit, so he got to go the 2-year-old's party and the 3-year-old's party. Look at all this stuff! I feel like a slacker mom, I just gave him traditional cards with tattoos in some and pencils in others.. and all these moms made goody bags!

A funny Ash Wednesday story

I know, Ash Wednesday is not a funny day.. but I had to share this. My church is relatively small, and not many people (sadly) show up for the Lenten services. So at our Ash Wednesday service all of us that were there came up around the altar at the same time to receive ashes on our forehead, including me and my 2 kids. David, my 2 year old, after I got the ashes on my forehead looked at me and loudly said "EEEW! EEEW!" and was pointing at my head, and his sister's. He said something else that I can't remember then continued to say "EEW!" and said to me "You going to take a bath?" LOL!!! It was too funny. Thank goodness people at my church are fairly laid back.

Comfort House

Posting a couple of different pics, neither are very good.. but they'll have to do til I get batteries for my camera! This is an exclusive design by The Sampler Girl. The quote is from Jane Austen's Northanger Abbey.

"Magic Stitch" sewing machines are..

PIECES OF CRAP!!!!! I mean, I wasn't expecting a professional grade sewing machine, just something that I can sew little pillows and ornaments with and stuff.. well I got one free through this gift thing at my husband's work. When we got it the thing was already threaded, which was ok but it had a little sample piece of fabric in it, and the thread was kind of twisted, the foot pedal didn't work..and now my new year's resolution is messed up because I was going to finish something every week, as I mentioned before.. I hadn't posted week 4 yet due to my camera batteries being dead.. but I had been keeping up. I am really upset, I stayed up late pinning and cutting all for naught. And there's not even an address to send the thing back to that I could find. I know it was free but I want them to know what a piece of junk the thing is.

Tuckered out..

Had to take this.. David fell asleep on my lap desk so he must've been pretty tired! It was so cute. I couldn't even wake him enough to eat dinner..I just let him sleep and then took him up to bed. Forgive the not-so-good picture quality. I need batteries for my camera so I am using my cell phone!

A Gathering of Secrets by Linda Castillo

I know, not much stitching lately but I have been on a roll reading books!  I was recently given the opportunity to read this awesome novel,...
