Let me share

Christmas this year was awesome even with the
more than a dozen set backs
all my kids were home with the grandkids
their great, can't live with out them

I made both of the little rascals
a Grinch quilt for christmas and thought I would share it with all
of you, it is made with one of my favorite patterns

the big block on the right hand side with the red stripe across it
is a pocket we filled it with the book and the video
Davey likes to pack her doll in the pocket

Here is Davey giving me the thumbs up of approval

If you look close you can see the crazy grinch gifts I quilted

hope you get a little inspiration
start now for Christmas 2012

New Favorite Toy

Mr Sugar gave me a Kindle Fire for Christmas
and probably wishes he hadn't
I am on my fourth book
and it has only been one month
since I got it

Oh and did I say how much I love, love, love it

and these are the books that have me hooked

don't click to look inside I borrowes these from her website

I love the storyline, and it helps you believe that every problem can be solved with fabric and friends

The fifth book will release in April 2012

I can not wait, I think I will take two days off from work and read all day
these really are good books, I'm just sayin

And look at the cute case Mr. Sugar bought for me

Ya the glasses have to tag along

Talk to ya tomorrow I have some Ghastlie news

Winter, it's just not fun
we finally broke out of the deep freeze
but now we have the chinook winds
and it is still cold, just not freezing

Even our ducks wish it was nice outside

Sad State of a Sewing Room

It has been three weeks without a sewing room
and this is what it looks like

this is the door into the sewing room
you can see the counter where my machine normally sits
and my lonely television

these are the cupboards they did'nt have to pull out
the boxes are full of our electronics,  I made them bring them back after they said it takes 4 weeks for them to be checked out, 6 because of christmas, we will take our chances that they won't blow.....
so far so good we just dont' have sound on the television and the 
xbox is not working, this is tragic to eveyone but me, they have not made a sewing game for it yet so I could care less.
Mr. Sugar does not find this funny he just wants it fixed

the floor is not so pretty, it never really is, I throw everything on the floor as I sew

I have the store to sew at but everyone wants to visit, and so do I
so finishing anything in a timely manner is not going to happen

I just miss sewing at night and sometimes all night long
for now I will just lay in bed and teach Mr. Sugar sewing terms.....
