Had to work the last couple of days but did an a.m. trip so got home tonight and my DH fixed supper (yummy fish, honey, thx) and I'm finishing the embroidery on the curtains! Woohoo! Next will be to cut them and sew them to the measurements my DIL gave me. Can't wait to finish and that will be one finished project done! Woohoo!

8/15/09

It's been good to be home a couple of days. Yesterday I got to go fishing and have my grandsons over! We had a great time and ate pizza and ice cream and watched Race To Witch Mountain. They hadnt seen it yet and I hadn't seen it all the way through. They really liked it. Today I went to the thrift store in town and found a couple of things but my big take was from a garage sale that I found an awesome vintage pyrex dish. This one I'm gonna keep. It's too cool and goes with my kitchen. Tonight I'm working on the curtains...lots further along but not done so won't finish until next weekend since I'm working the next 5 days straight.

Day 2

Still on the road and I'm itching to get home tomorrow and sew. I will do a few starbursts tomorrow night on the curtain and my goal (shout it out!) is to have this set of curtains done by Saturday night (altho my other DIL wants me to go to the beach on Saturday..hmmm..) but no I will stick by this goal. Til then...

Day 1

So many friends have wanted me to start a blog to hear about all I do. Well friends, here it is! I'm currently sitting in a hotel in San Francisco on an a.m. trip! (For those of you who know I only do p.m.'s don't fall off your chair, it worked well with my sis going back home to Phoenix and my DH coming home on Thursday) I am looking out over the water. What an incredible site. Lately I haven't gotten a whole lot done in my studio but with this blog I plan on keeping myself held accountable to YOU and promise to finish one project a week. (for those of you not understanding any of the above, I am a flight attendant and work ALOT so am gone much of the week. Plus I have so many projects I haven't finished...I could be called the Queen of Unfinished Projects) So here I am QUP ready to own up and finish...I am much better at buying all I need to finish a project than to actually FINISH the project. WELL, NO MORE BUYING JUST FINISHING!!! The first project is a set of curtains for my son and his wife. They are white with embroidered starbursts. They are embroidered on my sewing machine and for every panel have anywhere from 60-80 starbursts...it takes awhile. Plus I can't really do anything else while my sewing machine is going so I just sit there and change out the hoop time after time after time. Sooo As soon as I can get back home I will take a picture and show you how far I am. I have lots to share and lots to do so you won't get bored...hang out with me and maybe we can finish a project together.. until tomorrow (and no projects done until I get home on Friday)
