*warning: this post is picture filled ;)

I have no finishes...just tons of WIPs (Works in Progress).  When I first stared quilting (oh, 2ish years ago), I was a "work on one thing at a time" kinda girl.  But now...not so much.  There are just so many things that I want to try, I may be developing "crafter's ADD."  Most of my WIPs I would love to have completed by the winter months (i.e. Christmas - several are supposed to be gifts).

Not a gift, but it would be nice if I got around to quilting it.

We've got some new kids around here who need stockings.

Space Invaders for the nephew...haven't even started on the back.  EEK!

So many little time.  School work calls to me - but hopefully I will have a finish to share soon!

Birthday Madness

I have had a very busy week and a half since my last post.  I was staying with my grandparents to help them out, since my grandfather just got out of the hospital.  And I have been working part-time at a wonderful daycare (Infant's Inn).  This past weekend my sister and her fabulous family came into town to visit me for my birthday.  We had a great few days: swimming, reading, cooking, just enjoying the company (sure missed my cousins, my aunts and uncles, and my brother's family though - October cannot come soon enough!).  We celebrated my birthday on Sunday since Wendy left on Monday (yep, my birthday was on Labor Day). 

My fun Nieces and Nephews

My Sweet Daddy got me Apple TV!

I got 3 new sewing books!!  Two EPP and one embroidery.

Fun Quilting Supplies!
My nephew colored this pic for me on my phone.

Then I got to work on Tuesday and was greeted by a delicious homemade yellow cake with chocolate icing (my favorite) and a generous gift card to JoAnn's.  I have the best coworkers!


Wednesday was my grandmother's 82nd birthday and we went out for manicures and pedicures!  (no picture of my hands and feet...that might be a bit much - there are enough pics in this post :))

Wonder if the birthday fun will continue today?  Hope so!
Have a great week - hopefully I'll get back to sewing this weekend!
