I won the traveling stash from One Krafty Kitty Momma. I haven't had a lot of time to go though it yet and decide what I want to take out of it yet. Nor have I decided what to put back into it. But here is what it looks like now as I open it up.
Oh yeah, remember I posted those "Just 3 things" well right after that I got reminders of 3 other things that actually have deadlines looming very close. So.....I am going to try and find time to get those things done instead. First off "May for Me" is coming close that means I need my BINGO card made and done. I did most of it tonight to free my brain. (didn't work) If I ever have to make a I spy quilt, It wont happen. Took forever to find 24 squares with 24 different items in them. Tomorrow, (maybe) I will get the BINGO part of my card done, and then quilt it and make my post so I can LINKY up. Watch for pics soon. Another is 19 other ladies in my guild are having a Christmas string block swap, mine need to be done by May 8th!!!! Crapola! I have 5 done, 5 others started. All foundations and strings are cut, just need to sew, sew, sew, sew. Oh.....I have already forgotten what the 3rd one was. I think the brain has went to sleep on me already. I hope I remember soon. OH yeah.........TAXES! Whew, I did those yesterday. All 4 sets of them. Thanks Bonnie for reminding me it was that time. One and a half down 1.5 more to go.
Oh yeah ever wonder what the definition of STRESSED OUT is?! I have been going to training 8 hours a week for work, plus working 60+ hours a week too. Trying to renovate the rental house still. Work on our house. TAXES! Cleaning, laundry, dishes, cats, dogs, yard work, etc. Every time you make a list of 3 things your going to do on your one day off, something else happens, (alternator went out in my truck Friday) and you don't get any of them done. My list is so long now that I have lists to navigate the real list. I need a vacation. As soon as my boss gets back, I am taking time off from work, even if it is to sit and do nothing but breathe. Oh yeah and helping my youngest daughter plan a wedding to happen within the next month - 6 months, with no date set, gathering info, so when the call comes from the recruiter saying, your going on this date. We can call everyone and set everything up within 2 weeks and have us a beach wedding as cheaply as possible too. I sure hope that call doesn't come till after the first of June. I need some time to recoup. Gotta call me a maid to!
Did you pay close attention to the picture? Are you wondering why I have a Halloween tablecloth on the table the week after Easter? It is because I have a cedar chest in the dining room that holds all the table linens, it has a bunch of
I did finally break down and buy a new printer, because I couldn't deal with that headache anymore.
Oh yeah, I got Patti Hempen's new book " Free-Form Symmetry" in the mail last week. Oh I can't wait to make that quilt on the front cover, I was cutting all kinds of things out at work on Saturday when I needed my brain to have a break. You can click the link it will take you to her page.
I also received my Silhouette Cameo in the mail, been so busy haven't been able to play with it yet for the past 2 weeks it has been sitting on the floor under my desk. That is just plain sad!
