No trespassing

Not much going on here. Not much to write about. Same old crap, different day. I won't write about the backstabbing that happened. Or the trespassing.

I will show you some fabs I recently bought. I love them! I have left them out to admire before I put them into the cabinet.

I love looking at all my fabrics.

Whenever we go shopping my cousin always drives and won't take any money for gas, so I made her a totebag. I love the colors. Reminds me of ice cream.

Fall is fast approaching. My favorite frozen custard place is closing down after this weekend. I need to go get one. Season finale.

I really need a laugh

Somebody. Anybody. Make me laugh. I'm so stressed about this fast approaching loss of my job. Trying to stay calm. Sick of sending out my resume. OK, rant over. For today.

Got some new fabrics. These are so fun. They just make me smile when I look at them!

Look at those fruit butt ladies, LOL! They just crack me up! I just HAD to have that fabric when I spotted it in the quilt shop over the weekend. And I totally fell in love with that fall print from Joann's. New fabs in the house. That always makes me smile!

I also bought some fleece to make the kitties a new blanket.

They love to lay on that ottoman and look out the window. The ottoman is getting kind of ratty looking so I made them a little blanket to put on top of it. Gotta keep them comfy and cozy. Love my kitties! They also make me smile :)

It's the little things that count

Happy Labor Day Weekend! The hot humid summer sure flew by. It's been a lot cooler and less humid lately. I love it. Fall is my favorite season. But it's still officially summer. I found this little quilt at a garage sale the other day. I could not resist the fall colors so I bought it.

Time to rearrange things in the living room again and put out fallish type things. Haven't figured out where I'll put this little quilt yet.

I'm still working on my Knits Picks Spring/Summer Shawl. I'll probably still be working on it when spring comes around again, lol!

I'm ready to change colors again. This thing is taking me forever. I'm a slow knitter. But I do other crafty things too besides knit all day and night. I'm almost done with a quilt I'm also making. I just need to hand sew the binding down and that one will be done. Next one is a Christmas quilt. Been gathering the fabrics for that one. But it's way too early to think about Christmas. Especially since I'll be losing my job soon. The stress level is very high here.

I sewed my daughter a little pouch. We had a pickle event a couple weeks ago that made us laugh so when I saw this fabric I just had to buy it and make her something.

Can't wait for her reaction!

My Aunt sent me this little cross stitch ornament the other day. It cheered me up. It's always the little things that make me smile the largest. I need to hang it in a place of honor.

Hope you're enjoying the nice long Labor Day Weekend!
