First, I made a new Flickr group! I wanted a place where you could share any of the projects you've made using tutorials you found on my site. There are a couple projects already posted. Feel free to take a look around and please share anything you've made inspired by Mommy For Reals!!!
Secondly, this weekend brought Erika's Bachelorette Party! Holla! There is a dance fitness studio in Tempe that offers pole dancing classes and naturally, we just couldn't pass that up, especially since we had an such a perfect excuse! I won't go into too many details, but we had a GREAT time. I'm seriously considering going back to join one of the ongoing fitness classes with some of the girls. Even though we only had a short party, the next day my legs were super sore. And I liked it!
Thirdly, Di. I've been looking forward to Saturday for a few weeks now. Saturday was the day that I met Di of Random Thoughts Do or Di!!! We're talking THE Di! I was humbled that someone as amazing as her would want to meet little ol' me. I had the greatest time chatting with her about sewing and family and Downton Abbey, which I started watching this weekend, btw. BIG mistake. I don't have time to get obsessed with a new show this close to the wedding! Anyway, Di is fab and I can't wait to see her again!
-Stash Bee block. This one was a pain, for real. I screwed up about ten times before I got it right.
-Last x and + block for the swap. I now have enough to send them in!
-Wedding decor. Can't believe the wedding is only a few days away!
-Made the garter. Looking fancy.
To Do List:
-I made some more progress on the mystery project
-Waiting on my polka dot fabric for the charm swap. When it gets here, I have to cut it.
-I'm really behind now. I have 3 QAL blocks to do. Big time fail.
-Quilting For Kids block. For those of you who don't know about Sarah's mission, she collects blocks from people who volunteer to make them and puts together quilts for kids in foster care. It's a great cause, the blocks always have tutorials and if you are feeling particularly charitable, you should sign up to make one! This time, we are making asterisk blocks.
-Beejeebers Block. I am making a block based on Candyland and I have it all designed. Now, I just need to put it together!
-Curves Class hosted by Stitched in Color started last week and I haven't made any of the projects since I've been so busy. I bought the materials though. That should count for something. SO, I guess those projects should make this "to do" list too.
-Something special for my sister's birthday (in progress)
I decided to take off the things that aren't going to be worked on any time soon. I feel less panic when I see a shorter "to do" list. Anyone feel me?
