* * Snowed in * *

                                 Sew... We're snowed in today..
We got what I thought was close to 6 inches of snow last night.
And now it's blowing out.
I know I could have made it into work this morning.
But, I doubt I could have made it home.
The monte does not like sno & I don't blame her..
Besides, if it were just me I may have chanced it..
but.. I have a little life to think about now..
So, I stayed home and so did Hubs..

So we slept in..
I made breakfast ...
and I think I will sew this afternoon...
I have a project for christmas
I want to get done..

I've got most of my wrapping is done..
I've one more gift to get..

happy snow day to you..

8 days...

Only 8 more days till Christmas..
Hubs and I started our Christmas shopping yesterday..
We still have a few more things to get..
But atleast there's a start..
At work the other day.. the topic of the End Of The World came up..
I really wonder how many people have chosen not to shop or Christmas yet
because they say the world is going to end on Thursday..
I do not think the world is going to end..
If the world was going to end then women around the world would not be able to get pregnant..
I'm about 12 weeks and 6 days pregnant..
On another note..
We will be headed over to my parents home today..
so I can help mom wrap Christmas gifts..
She doesn't enjoy wrapping as much as I do.
When I lived at home before I got married
I would spend a few days doing her wrapping..
All except gifts for me.
Gizmo is just waiting for me to respond to everyone ..
I've got about 80 some emails to respond to..
So he & Rosie can draw a winner..
Happy 8 days till Christmas..

Wednesday, October 24, 2012 uninvited guest...

In the spirit of Halloween and all things wicked..
There is very few things as far as the creepy crawly that I'm personally not afraid of..
Spiders.. all depend on the size and shape..
Huge ones no way..
I turn into a crazy ninja..
but, what tops my list of things I refuse to deal with are mice.
I hate mice.
Sew.. I come home from spending the night at mom&dads to my hubby yelling
from the basement.. "Guess what I found'' he says..
I can only begin to guess..
never thought I'd be right when I said.. "A mouse?"
I'm assured it's already been dispatched..
but, by what?
Did one of my sweet little babies kill this mouse?
Do we call in the CSI of Mouse killers to find out the cause?
I think..
Do we decon? Or mouse tap?
Are there MORE?!?
What if I have alittle mouse family who has made their home some where within my sewing room...
I think we need a cat now..
Anyone have one we can loan out?? borrow??

A couple weeks ago I participated in a couple 'scrap vomit square swap' 
I haven't quite decided what to do with my squares- I recieved 6 packs of 49.
3 packs were international and 3 were just USA..
Its really cool to me to see what other quilters use for their fabrics.
I will join another 2 1/2" square swap if I'm very presented with the oppertunity..
Sew.. I thought I hadn't decided what to do with my squares..
Until Last night..
I was playing around having gotten the 'Leaves me happy' Table runner top done (coming soon to a post near you) AND having gotten my Wicked block done (just need to quilt it)
I decided to play..
Orignally, I was thinking mug mat..
Pick out my favorite squares and make a mat..
Sew, I laid out 4 x 5 squares and didn't think it looked right..
so, I changed it to 5x5 squares..
I sewed my squares together and got to thinking..
I can make a scrappy quilt..
I haave 3 blocks done total. sew far..
I'm trying to make them as random as I can..
Which I will say is a bit hard for me,
I'm not so good at Random..
Here's to the next week of cleaning the house >< and sewing.. :)
Happy Stitches~
Oh... and did I ever tell you that Giz is a toy hog??

Cake and Quilting

Tomorrow is my last day at the Bakery.
I've been training my replacement the last week or sew..
She'll fit right in.
I've been trying not to think about leaving,
I know I'm on to Bigger and Better things..
I've got to share what I did today..
This was the invite the person wanted me to follow.
This is the cupcake cake that I got done.. I'm pretty Damn pleased with myself.
I have a tractor & horse to put on a cake tomorrow..
Normally, when I decorate cakes I try to Keep it Simple.
Mostly roses, balloons or simple sprinkles..
Sew.. on another note.. tomorrow is also MEA sewing weekend at mom's.
I think I'm going to go over after work.. Whatever time that is.
I have some back stock to get done after my few orders I have..
Cindy is going to be there & I have NO IDEA what I'm going to work on..
I have the wicked block to finish..
And the table runner for my Leafs me happy block to work on..
I start at Costco on Halloween..
It's a good omen I think.. seeing Halloween is my favorite holiday!!
Happy Sewing~

Scrap Vomit Swap

Sew I got my squares in the mail from the Scrap Vomit Squares Pack- International.
Well, actually only 2 out of the 3 have come.
Aren't they sew pretty..
These came from Ottawa, Canada.
I'm WOW!!
Then I got these in the mail..
From NEW ZEALAND!!! .. I love the little card that says's 'be curious'
I've taped it up in my sewing room..
The 3 one hasn't come yet..
I guess I assume that if your going to do a swap you should at least
do your share and participate..
I also joined a scrap vomit scrap swap for the USA also..
I got this in the mail yesterday
I really LOVE the little scottie dogs & crazy lookin cats..
Sew.. Last night, I started & finished cutting my packs for the
Scrap Vomit Scrap Swap- USA
I mailed them out today after I got done with work..
I hope the ladies like them.. :)
I enjoyed very much for getting the different squares..
It's exciting to see what you get..
Tho, I don't think I'll be making a scrap vomit.
. but more like a postage stamp quilt I'm thinking..
Happy Friday!!
