I am now the proud owner of ...


Crutches! Yesterday, after delivering MOW, I twisted my ankle and fell to the ground. My left ankle is sprained, my right ankle is cut & bruised and I cut my knee. I am using an aircast and crutches. I wish I had a video of it. It was one of those laugh or cry things. I am still laughing at how clumsy I was. Everything but my face hit the road hard.

After a visit to the hospital I still had to get to the post office. Yes, I did! A very nice gentleman carried in my package for me.

The strange thing is my BFF did the same thing but at her house and hour away from here and is now using the same accessories as me! We must have been identical twin sisters in a former life.

I am leaving tomorrow on a ski weekend. Ha! I was not really going to cross country ski anyway but now I have an excuse to sit around. :-) I am going with a group of friends, all ladies. We will laugh, eat, play board games, have a mystery dinner, some will ski and go sledding, some will scrapbook, some will stitch and some will get extra sleep. I am really looking forward to some girl time.


I'll be back on Sunday night!

Amy Butler Bag Swap

Yay! I finished and shipped my bag to Shannon of It's "Sew" Shannon. I hope that the bag I made is 'Sew' Shannon. From reading her blog she seems to be a creative and fun loving lady. I think it will work well for carting projects to work and classes. One of the pockets is big enough for a book or magazine.










I want to thank SuzeeQ of for hosting the swap. I can't wait to see the bag Marielle is making me.

What I have been up too

I bought tickets for the Hubby and our little one to go to Monster Jam on Valentines Day. They went and the little one took over a hundred photos of the action. They had a great time and were home in time for dinner. I spent the day at home doing girly stuff. All in all it was a good day.


I am happy to report that I am now the owner of a complete set of Child Craft Books. They are a 15 year anniversary gift from my Sweet Hubby. This set is from 1949. The books are in excellent condition for their age. It is just like a set I had as a child. I love these books. Number eight is my fav. Wonderful pictures and illustrations. I am really enjoying re-reading them.

My Hubby sure is a keeper!

I have been working on my stitchery.

This one is from a note I left the hubby a while back.

This is the Feb. Gail Pan free BOM. A Christmas Wish.

Happy Stitches,
