How things change...

Been a long time since I've posted. We bought a house in August. Painted and all that fun stuff the end of August and beginning of September. Totally cool. I'm so thrilled to have a place of my own. We got moved in and had our housewarming party one month from the closing. There is so much to do. Jon worked over the sprinkler system. I've been tending to the weeds that are taller than the fence in the back yard and garden. I can't wait to plant things. I really want to try xeriscaping the lawn.

I've also been sewing a little. My old machine has been acting up for a few months. I'm still attempting to make it work. I made a bedside caddy for myself and have a quilt top for Small Daughter in progress. I'll post photos soon.

Last week I got a wild hair and decided that I was going to recycle some old jeans that Small Daughter had grown too tall for. I cut the legs off under the back pockets and sewed a skirt for them using the Malibu Monkey sock monkey fabric. Oh, so dang cute! I have many a plan for that fabric. I can see it in my kitchen, bathroom, bedrooms. I love the monkeys!

Tomorrow is the day! I can't wait to scrap my day. Shimelle Laine has a project that is such a blast. Take pictures of your day on the 25th of each month, then scrap them in their own book. We started in April. It's so fun to see what everyone does. I love love love it!

Long day

Not much creating done today. I rode with my youngest sister to Boise. I do wish I'd remembered my camera. The wildflowers along the freeway are so beautiful. Indicative of the rainy weather we've been having.

Lovely oldest daughter had softball practice this afternoon. We spent the time playing in the park. The weather couldn't make up it's mind. It was breezy and overcast when we arrived. Started to sprinkle then totally cleared up in a matter of minutes.

I did manage to slice up 4 lbs of strawberries after dinner. Now I want some delicious Silver White Cake and a can of whipped topping to go with it. Yummy!

I want a place to share my creativity. I like culinary arts, scrapbooking, sewing, embroidery. Too many things to mention. Uh-oh... they're coming to take me away!
