Ready????? Set??????

Good Evening Internet Friends!

Well it's Ready.....Set....Get Ready for the week day.

Kiddo and I slept in late this morning.  Too much excitement after being out to the movie last night I guess.

Had to get all the usual house cleaning, laundry and long dog walk in today.

Lunch was Cream of Tomato Soup from the frozen tomatoes in the freezer along with mozzarella sticks.  YUMMY:

While the laundry was going I decided to make Christmas cards.  These are to replace the 17 that were experimented on by "Lab" Dog and his trust assistance Kitten.

I used up an old kit that I had and love how they turned out:

If you look closely you will notice that these cards are only kind of the same.  That is because when I found a French Greeting I decided that these would be my son's teacher cards, and of course there is one specially made for his French Teacher.  

Hope this inspires your own creativity...

A Real Page Turner...

Good Evening Internet Friends!

I am very late (as usual) posting this evening.

My son and I got up early to get our tickets to see Star Wars: The Last Jedi.  The movie was awesome and once you see it you will understand my blog title for tonight.  P.S.  Yoda is very wise.

Since it is almost Sunday I shall post my Sharon's Scrap Sack Star Block:

All is Quiet on the Home Front???

Good Evening Internet Friends!

One might think that all is Quiet on the Home Front as I have not blogged all week.  That would so NOT be true!  In addition to work, extracurricular activities, physio appointments, and all the other things that I do I did a LOT of crafty things this week.

The first of these that I will show is the 135 Christmas Cards that I made for my own mailing this year as well as for the Quilt Guild I belong to and am on the Membership Committee:

Of the 135 cards I made 17 did not survive a "Lab Dog" and Kitten experiment....🏷🐕🐈

For these cards I used my "stash" of supplies.  I was super proud of that, until I  realized I was running low on paper and out of envelopes.  Fortunately my friend who is big into a certain stamping group let me know there was a BIG sale promotion on earlier this week and I was able to save on GST and postage.  😎  Fun mail will be here shortly.

As part of the Membership Committee for Quilt Guild I also decided to give everyone a fudge sample with their card.  I made three pans of fudge and cut into 1" pieces 125 squares of fudge.....YUMMY...

"Sew" that was part of my week.

Hope this inspires your own creativity...

What's Next ????

Good Very Late Evening Internet Friends.

Got up this morning and packed lunches, made breakfast, fed and watered all the pets and just enough time to jump in the shower.  Only to find out that while showering last night my son somehow dislodged a portion of the silicone tub sealant (it had been hanging on by a thread for about three years and "someone" was supposed to fix it).  Since "someone" is NOT here to repair this---I did.

I will add that I did a FABULOUS job and I think it might even look better than before - seriously.  😉

Finished up some laundry and got a few things prepped for tomorrow before deciding to get the Fat Quarter Exchange gifts ready for Quilt Guild later this week.

Here is Sharon's Zippered Pouch.  For this Zippered Pouch I used the plastic fuse over the lining fabric so that it could also be used as a cosmetic pouch.

TAH more to make before Thursday.

Hope this inspires your own creativity...

I LOST the Weekend....

Good Very Late Evening once again Internet Friends!

I had BIG plans for this weekend but not sure where they went.

On Saturday my son and I got out all the Christmas decorations, the tree, ornaments, dinner ware etc and made the house pretty for Christmas.

The Madeline kitten had great fun with this:

After dinner on Saturday we went for a walk to Candy Cane Lane.  The weather was perfect and the light displays were beautiful:

Today was my son's Christmas Piano Recital and afterwards our "City Family" as my son calls them (family friends) went for brunch.  Great to catch up with everyone and celebrate another year of family friendships. 

This evening after dinner and while doing laundry I finally got around to making my weekly Sharon's Scrap Sack Star Block:

Now to get some sleep and start the work week again tomorrow.

Hope this inspires your own creativity...

Friday Finish...

Good Evening Internet Friends!!!!

Managed to accomplish all my errands today and that means kiddo and I can do what we want tomorrow.  🎉

After dinner this evening I made a second Zippered Pouch with the Strawberry Fabric from 4Paws Quilting & Knitting:

Only a few more of these to make for Christmas presents/gift bags and then I should be able to start back on my quilting for fun ☺

Hope this inspires your own creativity...

Almost There.....

Good Late Evening Internet Friends!

It is finally the end of the work week for me 🙋.  I do love my job and have the best career/profession ever.....but..... with all the stuff I do at work and home, sometimes it makes for a long week.

After getting things organized for the errands I have to accomplish tomorrow I got to spend a bit of time in my craft room this evening.  

"Sew"  I sewed up a Zippered Pouch from the new fabric that I picked up at 4Paws Quilting & Knitting recently:

TAH DAH!!!!   Now to catch a few winks of sleep and get ready to roll tomorrow.

Hope this inspires your own creativity...
