Household project #2 - done and dusted
A pretty pile

Hello there.

January 19

I feel like the blog has been neglected a bit lately. And when I start feeling that way, I also feel that I need to check in even though I don't really have much to share. I know it's my space and that I can do what I please, but I like it here even when there isn't much going on.

So, hi.

I just got over a terrible cold. No fun.

The girls should be walking in the door from school any minute and I just pulled chocolate chip cookies out of the oven for them. Nice, right? Selfishly, I am hoping that a little treat will help make homework and chores and errands go smoothly, but it's probably just a wish. Doesn't hurt to try, though.

I've been sewing a bit. It's a little project that I have to keep under wraps for the time being. That said, I pulled out the nice fabric for it. That Liberty of London up there? It wasn't doing me any good sitting on my shelf so I cut it. It felt great. I should do that more often.

I've got a mess of scraps that need dealing with. Most of them are small-ish in size. They'd be perfect for potholders and the like. I've thought about making little kits with the scraps and batting, plus a pattern for a few different types of potholders. They would be reasonably priced. What do you think? Is there any interest in that? Let me know.

I'm scrapbooking, but I guess that deserves a post of it's own. Soon.

Ok. The girls are home. I'm going to make some smoothies to go with cookies.

I hope you're sitting down and enjoying a cookie and smoothie with the girls too.

Sometimes these little chatty posts are my favorite. And potholdrs! That's what I should make ts week!


cookies and smoothies?! I'll be right over. :)


Absolute interest in the kit idea. I just know I would love any scraps you've accumulated.
Glad the cold has skidaddled - enjoy those cookies!!

Hi to you too :)


Kit sounds lovely!

Yes on the potholders. I've been wanting to make some but have been too lazy to put it all together, but I love a good kit!


So glad you stopped by! Enjoy the cookies. Why is it so hard to use the good stuff. I have the same problem with yarn.


Beautiful Liberty fabric. Why IS it so hard to cut into a piece of well-loved fabric? I have the same problem with my huge pile of art papers... sigh. = )


i'd like details on the smoothies, please.


Another yes please for the kit, I've just about used all the scraps I bought from you last time you had a sale, would really love more.


I would love the pot holder kits...any hand-holding and support with my sewing much appreciated!


Well hello to you too :) Cookies are yummy bribes.


Potholder kits = yes, please!
And I'm not sure which is yummier, chocolate chip cookies, or Liberty lawn...


pretty scraps!

1 cup orange juice, 1/2 cup low fat yogurt ( we use vanilla), 1 banana, 1 cup frozen fruit (I normally do 1/2 cup strawberries and 1/2 cup peaches or pineapple). Blend it up and divide by 3. It's about a cup per person. ;)

Meredith Welborn

Yes, please! Bring on the pot holders!

I'd love a cookie to go with my cup of tea. And the kit sounds great. My potholders are very shabby.

Britt Peterson

Oooh! I would love a potholder kit!


I would love a potholder kit, or a mug-rug kit!

I, too, have been neglecting my blog - I havent been on since Thanksgiving!!! I am a slacker!


Yes please forgot holders! Sewing machine has sat on the floor for too long!!!


Oh yes -mug coasters too!!

potholders would be fun to make.

i think a chocolate milkshake sounds good with cookies.
