Sewed some blocks yesterday...

I sewed thes blocks yesterday for some swaps for the month of August. It was so nice to do some sewing. I mailed them off today.
My oldest sone starts back to school tomorrow. I can't wait. Next week I am going to enroll my youngest son in preschool. I can't wait to have some time to myself. The kids have been fighting likes cats and dogs all summer. It is enough to drive you crazy. God knows I love them but the fighting is maddening.
I have the Tshirt quilt I need to start on. I have four quilts that need to be sandwiched. My work is never done.
Oh and today I signed up for another swap. It is a log cabin swap I have to make 12 or 15 blocks to swap. The colors are white or wow on one side and beiges on the other with the center square being a dark beige. I am excited to do this one. It was on my list of quilts to make. Yeah...Sometimes I am my own worst enemy. But I like to stay busy.

It's Monday....

I am feeling better. No more medicine head. I didn't get much sewing done in the last week. Just a couple blocks for swaps.

We had a busy weekend. Saturday was spent school shopping. That is always so much fun. There were tons of people out shopping. I went to 5 different stores before I could find my oldest son any shorts. They have a dress code here. No shorts that have more than five pockets. No carpenter pants or cargo pants aloud. And they can only wear solid, striped, or plaid shirts. Nothing with any logos on it. The shirts were easy to find. But it was almost impossible to find shorts. All the stores had shorts but they had too many pockets. Very frusterating.

Sunday we went to church. Then I took the kids to the skating rink for a friends birthday party. They had a blast. Then back to church again.

I have a quilt I need to get started on. A tshirt quilt for a daughter of a lady I know. She has 30 gymnastics tshirts for me. I need to finish the quilt for my bed. All I have to do is sew the border on it and put all the layers together. I have 4 swaps to make blocks for. They are farely easy. Hopefully I can work on those tomorrow and get them in the mail this week.

I slipped and fell in some mud in the back yard earlier today. I was watering plants and went to shut the water off and slid in the mud. My feet went right out from underneath me. I scrapped up my left knee pretty good. Thank God I didn't break a leg or ankle. God was watching out for me.

Medicine Head....

Monday I went to the doctor and got put on some new meds. I have been taking them all week. One of the side effects is medicine head. I feel like I took some cold medicine and I am loopy. I guess that is the best way to describe it.
I haven't gotten much done this week. I worked a little on my lily project. I sewed some lace on a dresser scarf yesterday. I fixed something for a friend. I also have a new project in my lap. A lady wants me to make her daughter a quilt using all her old gymnastics t-shirts. I also have a pile of fabric to iron and cut up into squares. I just can't seem to get myself motivated. I have managed to do a load of laundry. But what fun is that. I bought some pink, blue, and purple fabric to make a planned parenthood quilt for a friend in FLORIDA who is having a baby.
Hopefully the day will turn itself around here shortly and I can get some things done.
