Need a little fiber?

The girls and I were cleaning the kitchen tonight. I asked Chel's to put away a can of condensed beef soup. I told her I was going to have it for lunch but changed my mind. She replied, "Why? Because it was constipated?"

I would rather...

be doing fun crafty things with this...
and this...
and maybe this...
But instead, I'm faced with this...
and this...
Go ahead, feel my pain. Give me some bloggy sympathy.

And by the way, who wouldn't love a girl who would show you her messy sink full of last night's dishes, I tell ya!

Here's a good start!

My dear friend Amy, (the one I Shop Hopped with,) came over last night and helped me cut out outfits. She also brought along some sweaters and "outgrown" things from her closet to use. We went through my girls' closet and picked a few things that they just LOVE, so we could make patterns and copy them.

Amy brought 4 darling turtleneck sweaters. We cut out skirts to add to the bottoms to make sweater dresses.

My girls also have this darling pair of gaucho pants in a brown velour fabric. We laid them out on pattern paper and traced a new pattern to cut out of this gorgeous red Ultrasuede/knit stuff.

Today was also a potty training day for us, so I wasn't as productive as I had hoped, but I got two items finished to add to their fall wardrobe with about a half dozen or more cut out ready to sew.


And on a side note, Boo is tinkling in the toilet!! Not all the time, but I think he's getting it! Yay, Boo Boo!!

Boring...

Ok, I have nothing fabulous to talk about. I'm not sure if I even have any readers anymore...
Anyone?
Anyone?
(crickets chirping...)
Ok, I think I'm just posting for my own benefit.

I've been making a fabulous quilt! Ok, I think it's fabulous because it's something I never thought I could do. I've been so fed up with my lame sewing machine lately, I've decided to go on strike and not use it! So there!

I've been doing hand applique! I LOVE it! I'm going to do a tutorial here on my blog so keep watching!
Here's a sample to keep you excited! Aren't you excited? I am!
