Finishing - Starting - Timing

About the only things on this post that are FINISHED
are these.
I had cut out extra and finally got them done.
One goes into the bin for the open house,
One will be given away soon....
Watch for it!

The final vote around my house was to coffee-stain.
Then starch and glitter.
The next pic, hopefully will be on the tree.
And
A few for the giveaway.

These are all the pennies left to do for that HUGE project
that I am getting real tired of making.
Hopefully the next pic will be on my table.

Back to the I Spy quilt.
I started this awhile ago.
As in probably two years ago, awhile ago.
I would have to look back.
I am sure I blogged it.


It is back out for awhile.
As soon as the penny rug is done.

Some blue jeans to be made into table runners.
Or a blanket if I get real industrious.
More on that later.

One other finished,
but not by me.
This cute little ornament
came in the mail on Saturday!
Painted by one of my Painting Ladies!

Thanks, Marie!


It inspired me to make a pattern for wool.
More on that later also.

And a bunch of tracing for snowmen and a few other things.
Just messing in my sewing room yesterday.
And why?
First of all, just needed a break yesterday.
Saturday,
I had to go to work.
Had to undecorate the church,
take my tree down...
all that stuff.
Yesterday,
I needed my recliner
and rest.
However,
what I did not expect.
Was that the
Steelers - Broncos game,
that the Steelers were supposed to win...
would turn
JWS
into nothing less
than a
pacing,
stomping,
frowning,
fire-breathing,
bitter
man.
And those are not the words that i used to describe
him in my mind.
Might as well be honest.
So I retreated to my sewing room.
I was Ok with that.
But,
the woman that called three times in a row
for something stupid for the fair,
ten minutes after the game was over,
got the real earful.
Thank goodness he just screamed it AT the phone,
and
not
INTO
the phone.
How lucky she is that he didn't actually pick it up.
Well, actually
as much as she calls,
there was a small part of me wishing he would have picked it up.
The calls might have ended.
Don't tell anyone I said that!

Wow , Looks like you have a lot going. Love the snowmen and the hearts. I have penny rugs on my list of learn to do things in 2012 I bought a couple of simple patterns to begin. Was just wondering, how do you cut your circles, with scissors or a rotary cutter? Love the I spy quilt. Such a neat idea. Glad to hear my mister isn't the only one who really gets involved with the football games. Sounds like my mister and your JWS would be dangerous in a room together while watching a game. (lol). Wishing you a Marvelous Monday my friend

The snowmen are so cute. It is hard to tell size from the picture but they look like they could be used as a placemat.

I love the ccochet hearts! I've been meaning to learn to crochet forever and now I think I must. You are one busy gal with a lot of projects!

Angie Berry said...

Hehe, you crack me up! Sounds like my hubby when Dallas Cowboys lose, yeah he's a diehard Cowboys fan. But I'm with you... when the games are on, it's best to retreat to a nice, quiet place because you know there's gonna be some hollering going on. =]

You have lots of projects lined out, that's great! I usually stand in my crafting area looking around trying to decide what to tackle next. Have fun with it all~

Ahhhh....so that's what's becoming of the crocheted hearts....And yes, definitely loved them stained. They're gorgeous! Too funny about JW and the Steeler game (well, ok, not exactly "funny" - but I can relate - much like the day our beloved Packers completely blew their wonderful season to smithereens...Yikes, just the memory of the spew spewed about here makes me shudder....) That I Spy quilt sounds fascinating - those books were some of my son's absolute favorites as he was growing up - I could only imagine how he would have loved an I Spy quilt..... Robin
