I am Free!!!

I have finally done it. I have left Facebook for good, now I am dealing with the constant social networking withdrawals. But, now maybe I can get things done! As you can see I am doing a little changing on my blog. I have a lot of work left to do on it so please be patient with me. I hope I don’t mess it up too bad, I have not decided on a final layout so please excuse me if it changes a bit the next week.

I have been busy here doing a lot of celebrating. My birthday was last Saturday and we had a nice day. I had to work Friday night but that was okay when I got home Saturday morning we had a great day together and I tried to go to bed a little early. My goal was to go out and get an outfit for my birthday but I am sad to say I have gained so much of the weight I had lost back since last year he clothes were not fitting to my liking, so no outfit. We went to a little art festival downtown and the kids had fun making leather key chains. They were having fun until the lady there told them they had to stop banging so it wouldn’t interrupt the music (that was a little odd I thought). We didn’t let it bother us and moved on with the festivities, by the way, the music was very nice.

When we got home we had my annual “Piggy” birthday cake (my husband is so good to me – I get one every year).

I opened my presents which included a Ipod Nano, I am finally moving into the “digital” music age. It is a great little device, radio, pedometer,  holds a ton of music and pictures, and more. So much fancy stuff I will never figure it all out.

Sunday was Mother’s Day and I was treated with this huge omelet! You notice my husband made it into some type of critter, it was difficult to eat it without feeling guilty. But I managed.

It is not a celebration with my husband going to town on the food. He made so much yummy goodness. You can see why I am gaining weight.

I had to show you this cute little fellow, he was hanging out on my front steps yesterday and even let me sit beside him. We have so many lizards here. I have to constantly clean the garage out of not mouse poop but lizard poop, it is crazy, but I guess they will keep the bugs at bay.

I have decided for the family vacation this year I am making beach bags with a stuffed toy for each kid. For the first one I decided to make a dolphin, the pattern is from Melly & Me. I made several years ago when it was in the Australian Homespun magazine.

Here it is with the ones that belong to my girls. I think they are the cutest little things.

I got a new pig t-shirt. I am starting to amass a huge collection of them. I love this one, they are like cannibal pigs.

I have been cleaning out a lot of my collectibles since getting my booth and right now I am working on my snowman collection. I have so many snowmen. I have listed this set on eBay just because it is the complete set, so if you are a snowman collector or know someone who is, this is available for two more days here.

That is it for now, I have to run, I have a child and some sidewalk chalk calling my name! I hope you are having a great week and finding a little stitching time!!

Sorry its a belated Happy Birthday but you looked like you had a lovely time.
Just thinking about your comments on FB I have just linked up again and now I am not sure I did the right thing because my blog needs keeping up too, and this is where you take on to much, and no time for sewing. Oh well see how it goes.
have a great week anyway.
