Spring Has Sprung




Not really, It is actually really cold here, but we were lucky enough to have Tulips delivered to work this week. Tulips are my favorite flower and they remind me that warm weather is comming.

V-Necks and Knit Ribbing Don't Go Together

I'm having trouble with the pattern http://simplicity.com/dv1_v4.cfm?design=9853. (I hope this link works) The v-neck ribbing has me stuck. I can't get the ribbing to make the v. If anybody has made this pattern, I would love some advice!

3 Finished Christmas Presents!!





These blankets are for Bo's aunt and two cousins. I hope they like them. We have two of these at our house because we were fighting over one. Anyone can make these and they are nice easy homemade gifts.

Will's PJs


Shorts


Unfinished PJs


I worked on and finished that shorts to Will's pajamas last night. I hope to finish the shirt tonight. I made them a size larger so I wouldn't be able to give them to him until Christmas.

Shopping?






Apparently I have shopped a lot lately. More than I probably should have, but every thing was on sale!! I just wish my husband would see it that way.
The red fabric is just adorable and I hope to cut out an appron of it this week.
The second picture is of trim I found last week at Hobby Lobby.
Oh, I love it when Hancock has patterns on sale - Not that I need anymore
More trim that I will have to find a project to use them on. Until these finds I didn't have any trim items at my house.
Well, that is what I have purchased in the last could of weeks. What have you purchased lately?

Laugh or Cry

If I don’t laugh – I’m definitely going to cry. I have MRSA Staph… AGAIN! My second round – My husband has had it five times in five months. We apparently beat the old version, and now have picked it up AGAIN! The frustration is overwhelming.

This is not the only thing that is going on in my life. Last night I made a fleece blanket for a Christmas present, got several great items at Hobby Lobby, and received the Hancock flyer in the mail . I don't need to purchase more fabric or patterns, but I will. I will post pictures of the fleece blanket and Hobby Lobby items soon.

Ash Wednesday!

I thought I would post what I plan to give up to make me more accountable. Now, I know that other people will know what I gave up. After much consideration - I have decided that I will give up two of my favorite items 1. Diet Sunkist 2. Our Favorite Mexican Restraunt.

Did you Vote Yesterday?

Our state was a Super Tuesday state, and my husband and I did participate in the vote. I did not watch the media coverage of the returns last night. My brother finds it amusing that I can wait to find out the results since I have a degree in Political Science. I love the social and historical aspect of politics, but the meanness that takes place on the campaign trail - I can't stand!!
