Not a whole lot to post about, but then again tons! Do you ever feel that way?
I have been tres busy, ripping up carpet and laying a new floor for my mom. I am sooo sore. And achy. Oh my gosh i feel like a little old lady, hobbling along. LOL I have been on my hands and knees for three days - and it's taking it's toll!
And starting that project came on the heels of tons of yardwork and planting a bunch of beautimous flowers out front. So I was a bit sore after that. Yep. pathetic huh? It's amazing... how when raking you use muscles you don't normally use!
And on one side, i feel like a total flabby wimp because i am sore. LOL
And on the other hand, i feel like SHE-RAH! "Because I laugh in the face of sore muscles and push through and got the job done! " hee hee
So today is my little Calli-Belle's last day of second grade!
Jeez, they just grow up so fast :(
I am on my way to the second grade picinic here in a few minutes... and then she will be a big third grader! How'd that happen???
She brought me this gorgeous painting. I ABSOLUTELY ADORE this!!
I need to find a frame big enough to fit. I love the bold colors, the intricate design on the bug's body. That smiley face! I just love everything about it! Things like this,total creative freedom... and when kids do self portraits - are my favorites! I have collected some pretty cool self portraits from the kids over the years, and have decided I want to frame them all, and hang them down my upper hallway. Bold. Colorful. "THIS is who i am!" It doesn't get anymore honest than that!! And it just speaks to my heart! :D
I made two market totes a couple weeks ago, for my mom and my mother-in-love for mother's day. And donchya know - i didnt take any pics! They turned out pretty fun! I made them large quilted grocery totes (or flea market, or library or swimming or whatever)
My mom's was bright limes, oranges and blues. I saw it hanging on her pantry yesterday and snapped a pic with my phone - so not the best photos in the world. LOL
She loves it :D
I still need to snag a picture of my MIL's. I made hers a little less wide, with wider quilted handles, out of Joel Dewberry reds and teals, and red polka dots. They both turned out totally different and fun :) I haven't even touched the sewing machine since finishing these guys. Just been so busy, and not home at all! Speaking of which, I better go brush my hair and make myself presentable so all the second graders don't laugh at me! LOL! See ya soon! xo Bren
