Needless to say, since last Wed, there were a bunch of bumps in the road.
|Bruised head and face scrape from playing basketball with big brothers|
The kind of bump that buys you a ticket to the local Children's hospital for a CT scan on a Monday morning.
This after Button had three days of fever. A lot of tylenol and cuddling Thursday through Saturday.
And then ONE more bump before the night was over on Monday.
|Hit the sharp edge of a cabinet in my closet|
And Butter turned 15 yesterday. I threw together some cupcakes.
|A little help from baby brother!|
Now to plan the party. Two years ago he didn't have his until July...
Needless to say, I didn't get a whole lot done this week!
Last week I mentioned I didn't have photos of the dog bed project...photos are up on Friday's post!!
A friend asked for her daughter's volleyball bag embroidered. After about 2 hours of fighting my hoop...bloody fingers, broken nails...I called her and told her the bad news. I couldn't do it.
Funny thing? As we talked about my disappointment, she told me what the problem was..the girls were mixing up their bags at their tournaments. All of a sudden I had an idea..what about a personalized luggage tag. She was excited and agreed.
I ran out of plain black cotton a few weeks back and decided to pull out some black Aida cloth I had from my cross-stitch stash. It ended up stitching very nicely. She reported that her daughter loves it. Then, her friends loved it so much, they asked me to make about 8 more..so I finished them up yesterday!
Rainbow Layer Cake Swap
I actually sent my fabric ON TIME before the first fever hit! Excited to get a package back!
Auction T-shirt Quilt
I had a chance to sort them by color and get a better idea.
|75 t-shirts in some sort of color piles|
All I did was manage to make a mess. I still want to scan each t-shirt to get it into my EQ7 so I get a better idea of the colors of each graphic on the tees. I hope it works!!
I can't embroider without watching my machine. To many mistakes happen. Like the one that I was planning to send Monday?
I forgot a special "title" for the quilt. I am so glad I caught it before I mailed it.
YES! NO MATTER WHAT!

Linking up with Lee...
But I think I might cry when I see everyone's progress!
how the heck can you have a 15 year old?!? (you absolutely don't look old enough... and that's a compliment). :) I take it you were babies when you got married, huh?ReplyDelete
Button -- listen -- I get it that your big brothers are cool and all, but seriously, just take a little time, you'll be all big and grown up soon enough
I know seriously...I must have been like 12, right? *snort* I promise, I could totally legally drink the year he was born ;)!Delete
And Button nodded his head sagely. He respects you advice...will he heed it? No. I already found him playing basketball last night with them.
Your poor little one! What a day he had? Yay I finally, finally got a chance to tell ya that I love how your dog bed cover turned out! That turned out really nice. And Happy Birthday to your oldest son too!ReplyDelete
