Yes, it's true, yet another blog entry AND I've got some fleece out AND I'm actually cutting out some hats AND they're boy prints/hats too. It's a miracle to be doing this in the heat, but it's simply way to hot now that the sun has actually surfaced and i've got chores to get done and the kids simply need some down time today so it's a good opportunity for me to just jump into winter projects! Before we know it, we'll be shopping for our winter gear so I must be ready. Oh happy day!

YES, I'M BACK AGAIN SO SOON. O.K., IT'S NOT LIKE I HAVEN'T BEEN DOING ANYTHING. I CLEANED MY SEWING ROOM AND I'M READY TO ROLL IN FLEECE. WE WENT CAMPING FOR A COUPLE OF NIGHTS, MY PURSES DIDN'T SELL ON EBAY AND I'M STRUGGLING W/ ETSY LIFE SINCE IT SEEMS THERE'S A FEW BUGS THAT CROP UP MORE THAN I LIKE. TRIED TO LIST THEM ON ETSY BUT AFTER MULTIPLE TRIES, MY PICS WEREN'T LOADING. TURNS OUT I WASN'T THE ONLY ONE W/ THIS PROBLEM. HIKED A SMALL MOUNTAIN TODAY W/ SOME FRIENDS AND VISITED MY MY NUTTY NANA WHO TELLS ME HER DOG CHEWED UP HER TEETH - UGH!

THESE ARE LISTED ON EBAY W/ THE PURSES PICTURED BELOW. NOT SO SURE THEY'LL SELL AND MIGHT JUST LIST THEM ON ETSY AS WELL JUST BECAUSE . . . I'VE CERTAINLY GOT PLENTY OF FABRIC TO REPRODUCE THESE! SWIM LESSONS ENDED TODAY - OH HAPPY DAY AND CAMPING ON SUNDAY/MONDAY. IT'LL BE A BIT COOLER THAN I'D LIKE, BUT NO RAIN MAKES ME A HAPPY CAMPER!

I've been sooooo busy trying to enjoy this time with my children and my husband that I've been totally delinquent in my duties, but read a few great booksamong other things. Before I know it, another year of school will begin and my youngest will start preschool so I'm excited for them but also a little sad. We've been camping, done the polar caves, story land, ocean trips, lake trips, swim lessons, ocean kayaking and more. I will post some
pictures and I promise that they won't include my shorts that I duct taped when I ripped them camping (it was kinda funny, but the pic wasn't mine and I'm certain it wasn't pretty, but i suspect that you can find that somewhere at www.happyhousequilts.blogspot.com)! I've eased my way into crafting with a shirt for Kristen also a sweater I've begun for her in single crochet (ugh, what an idiot, it'll take FOREVER!). Finished the two purses I cut out weeks ago and may list them on ebay today since they're having a listing fee special. Might pull a few etsy items that are stale and see if they'll sell there. Also donated a few things to Loudon Old Home Day PTA silent auction where 100% of the proceeds when to PTA so I hope they did well! I did make a very lame boat when I was camping for our first annual handmade boat race down the stream. I competed against 3, 5 & 7 yo's and I LOST in a very big way! As always, thanks so much for checking out my babble and have a happy day! Now, if only I could figure out this tagging thingy?? . . .
