Busy Busy

Hi all, I am feeling better about all the struggles today. Have the AC fixed, the septic cleaned out (wish I could get that smell out of my nose), the rest can wait a little while, but the must do’s are accomplished.

I am currently washing my 5 loads of laundry  while doing a little doll body sewing.  I got side tracked and started messing with scrap baskets. How many does a girl need anyway?

So of course I have been folding instead of sewing. I love looking at and playing with the scraps as much as I do the bigger pieces of fabric.  I got rid of a ton of the scraps but I still need to thin them out or at least find another way to store them or heck maybe use them.

Alice had her last softball game last night. Well we thought it was her last. She played so well.

The team went for pizza after the game to eat and they received their trophies.  Here is a picture of her getting her trophy. She lost one coach because he got deployed to Afghanistan about a week ago. They are all great guys.

Here’s my proud girl. Her coach came over and told us he would love for Alice to play for the All-star team. We were so excited! So lots more practice until the game at the end of the month and then if they win more games to follow. Way to go Alice!!

Adorable, the shirt says it all. Good for her making the allstar team.
At least your scraps look neat, mine are all in a huge jumble.
