Oh how lonely I will be. The hubby took the kids to the beach this morning. I am sad but at ease with it. A couple days to myself. Do some cleaning, laying around, sewing, turn the music up, whatever. I do have to work a couple nights but at least I will be able to get sleep for it.
I have already cleaned my car from top to bottom, except the outside. If you would have seen the inside, oh man, I don’t know, it was bad. You definitely could not judge my house by my car. And the food (from the kids) that was in there. I think it would have been a meal for two people.
I have been crafting a little bit. I made a stitchery from Mulberry Folk Art’s Book 9. I don’t know if it is still in print. I got it on sale a couple years ago at www.ColonialCrafts.com. It is a great book from a great designer. I have not seen anything new from her in a while. Here’s the book:
I also did a little wool appliqué/stitchery from the Need’l Love Book Old Glory. Here’s the book, there is some great stuff in here, I have my list ready and I think I am going to make just about everything in it. I’ve had the book for many years and like all the rest of my patterns it just sits on the shelf beckoning me to make things from it:
Alice and Gordon were a little jealous Natalie got to wear one so they had to pose with them also. Again, they were not made to wear but they were just being silly. Alice was afraid her eyes were going to be closed for the picture that is why her eyes look so big (and goofy).
Oh, I miss them already, I better get busy so I don’t think about it. Later!!!
