Bad Blogger!

I have been pretty absent from my blog this month. Bad blogger. Bad. It's not that I don't think of you all every day. I do. I even keep up reading all of your blogs. It's not that I haven't been doing any sewing. I have. It's just that blogging seems like such a chore. I have given up on the every Monday link up in the Get Acquainted Blog Hop. It is such a hassle for me dealing with the photos, etc.  When I have something to blog about it just seems like so much work to do a post. I am not very tech-y and this is  stretch for me. Anyway, I will try to do some catching up here.

We had a trip to Michigan to see Little Missy. Each time I see her I am amazed at how much her vocabulary has grown and how she is getting bigger.
We took her to Dutch Village in Holland. She wasn't too thrilled about up close and personal interactions with the animals. They were fine at a distance. Next year, she will enjoy it more.

While we were in Michigan, Joann's was having their Coupon Commotion. I took some time to go to their great store in Norton Shores. They have a great selection of fabrics...better than what I have found at the Lexington store. Anyway, I felt obligated to use the coupons. It just wouldn't have been polite not to. See what I picked out.

Just look at all the great DS fabrics I scored. I love the colors. I don't remember the names of the patterns or what collections they came from. I love the fresh colors in the group above and I was looking for some reds and found these two along with this great blue with red. I am dreaming of what I will do with these great pieces. Stay tuned.

I also finished Merry, Merry Snowmen block #6.
This one was much simpler than some of the others so far, but it still took longer to finish than I thought it would. The hand sewing on this block took 6 hours. I was amazed that it took so long.

I have also been sewing scrap houses. At last count I had 260 completed. A mere 105 more to go.

Thanks for stopping by.


  1. Hey, it's your blog, do what's comfortable to you. I haven't touched my little houses for some time, so you are doing really great with that.

  2. I'm not exactly good with keeping my blog up either lol So you'll only get understanding here ;) Love the new snowman block! Wow, your about 2/3 done with your houses congratz! Lovely fabrics from Joanns :) I keep promising to finish something before anymore new comes in.... I may have lied :P

  3. Glad to see your back and have been fabric shopping! What a great selection of prints.
