Nice day outside....and all I want to do is sew...

Yes, we FINALLY have some nice weather!!

However, since today is Nato's day off, he has decided to mow the yard, as we don't want to be charged a $75 fee for the park to do it for us.

I am watching the kids & working on Allie's, Joey's, NickDaniel's, and Rod's quilts.

I have decided that for my Halloween costume this year I'm just going to wear my wedding dress w/ the corset I made over it.

I'm hoping to get at least one of the aforementioned quilts done today.

Oct. 15th Friday night sew-in!!

I didn't manage to get anymore work done on my costume last night, but I did, however, FINALLY finish Rod's quilt top. I am making this quilt for a friend of my mom's that is going through Chemotherapy.

I figured a comfort quilt might help his morale.

I didn't get ANY work done on my costume yesterday, but I did get one more row sewn on Rod's quilt top.

Today, I'm HOPING to get Rod's quilt top done & get some more of my costume cut out.

Okay, so it's been a while...

The kids & I went to KyRa's for RyJa's 1st b-day party last weekend.
She picked us up late Friday morning, we spent the night there, were @ the party on Saturday, then they dropped us off @ my mom's in the evening. We spent Saturday night @ my mom's.

Sunday morning my mom dropped us off @ Uncle Larry & Aunt Donna's place out in OC. Uncle Larry worked on a coverup tattoo for me.

I had fun over the weekend, but I was SO happy to be home Saturday night.

Monday was my & Nato's date day. Tony, Robin, & my MIL watched the kids for us for quite a few hours. We had a really nice date.

Yesterday we played D&D.
Last night I FINALLY finished repairing the denim bag my mom made in high school.

Today I'm hoping to get work done on my costume!

Today, today, oh, today...

EARLY!!!!!! this morning, my MIL texted me telling us to get up & ready, cause we were going onto town. We did our shopping stuff for a few hours then came home.

I am SO happy, over 2 days, having to watch kids too, I almost have Rod's quilt top done!!

...getting busy.

Yesterday, I got 2 loads of dishes done, then Nato did the rest for me, I finished patching up the denim bag, I just need to reattach the liner & strap.

I'm in the process of piecing Rod's quilt top. I am hoping to get it done & in the mail this week!!

Tonight is the night Nato stays up so I can sleep uninterrupted, so we'll see how much more work I get done before bed.

At least SOMETHING got done!!

Yesterday, I repaired several pairs of jeans. One for me and a few for Hannah (Cara's younger sister, not the one married to Jason).

Anyways, I finished up the 3rd row of Rod's quilt, and disassembled (tore apart just sounds too violent for this...) the denim bag my mom made in high school, as it is in DIRE need of repairs and I am hoping to patch it all up.

That's about all I got done yesterday. BUT, looking back, that is quite alot while taking care of 2 kids!!

I am planning on cleaning up the explosion of dishes today, as well as getting some work done in the sewing room.

Here it goes, here it goes, here it goes again...

I didn't manage to get any more quilting done on Alice in Quiltland yesterday, but I started another row on Rod's quilt.

I am hoping to get a good chunk of Rod's quilt top done today. We will see if it happens.

I also am hoping to get at least SOME more quilting done on Alice in Quiltland too.
