Stitchin' the day away...

At the beginning of the week we had our warm 55 degree January thaw.  Full advantage was taken of the warm day and all the holiday lights were taken down outside.  No sense in waiting until April you know.  It was so nice to get out and enjoy the warm fresh air and have a couple of doors open and get that wonderful air in the house.  The past few days we have been teased with the sun but no warm temps.  Bright and sunny but really breezy chilly.

So all of us girls found ourselves hanging out in the craft room after lessons today, enjoying the sun streaming in through the window.

Someone has been bit by the sewing bug.
 A bright little bag just had to be made to carry the all important book, sunglasses, etc. when one goes out on errands and such.  Can't be too prepared you know.
 Progress is being made with Glenn's sweater.
All that is left now is seaming and the pocket.
Just for info... I will be throwing this pattern away when I'm finished.
I can't wait to move on to a more cheery project.
I'm thinking I need to make a trip to the fabric store so I can work on the quilt.
 One little person didn't care much for anything crafty today.
So it was decided that reading an all time favorite would be perfect while sitting as close as possible to Mom, without getting run over or something.
 After a bit someone mentioned something about being a little snacky.  A few minutes later all was just a bit too quiet, I went to go check things out and this is where I found the little mouse.  I just don't ask.  I guess she thinks it's okay to lay all over the counter when Mom's not looking.  Maybe it makes ham, cheese and crackers taste better or something.
She got down for a drink and when she tried to pull herself back up on the counter (when she thought I wasn't looking) her hand slipped.  A chin hit the counter and a big bite on the tongue happened.  After all the tears were dried and the little tongue stopped bleeding she said maybe she should have listened to me and not try to sit on the counter again.
You do know that we Mom's just say things just to be making noise you know.
We really have no clue about what we are talking about.


  1. So glad your little one didn't hurt herself too badly - sometimes a little mishap drives home the point that maybe Mom does know what she's talking about sometimes!!

    Sorry Glenn's sweater hasn't been cheery for you! Still, I can't wait to see the finished product :)

    We've had typical Maine weather for the last two weeks; three big snowstorms and another on the way for tomorrow!

    Stay warm :)


  2. Sometimes you just have to let them learn themselves that Mom is always right:)
    Glad she isnt hurting too badly though!
    I am sorry that the sweater is being troublesome, I hate when projects get that way.
    It just makes finishing them seem to take way long, hopefully it will be done soon for you!
    Have a great day!

  3. Looking forward to seeing the finished sweater too. I say burn that pattern! lol No matter what though, I know the sweater will look fantastic.

    Glad the little one didn't get hurt too badly. Hopefully, lesson learned.

  4. Oh Karrrfeee, Life's little lessons can be tough, huh?
    Glad to hear you're keeping busy, gal! Me, too!! It is raining cats and dogs and is past my bed time so I' getting off of here! Love ya bunches and hope your weekend is fantastic!!

  5. Sounds lovely! All that nice outdoor time followed by crafting....who could ask for more :)

  6. Poor kiddo. Kids have to see for themselves I guess. I stuck my entire palm on a hot iron at age 5, right after mom said "Don't touch. It's hot!".

    Pretty projects. It looks as though you've been busy :)

  7. Nope....Mom's don't know much! Good thing you were there to dry the tears.

    Keep plugging away at that sweater....It's looking good.

  8. Oh yes moms are always right but don't we sometimes like to find out stuff the hard way. Sorry to hear your still fighting that dang sweater, heres hoping your almost done. I love the feel of the sun through the window, there somthing motivating about it. Enjoy your weekend!
