Where did it go?
The only thing that got me fired up about starting school was the brand new supplies that had been purchased at K-Mart in the weeks before. New notebooks, binders, pencils, pens, new lunch box and a new back-pack. I have a weakness for office supplies and I could hardly stand the wait. Looking at the pile across the bedroom- taken out almost daily to take thorough look at it. Something about the newness of the notebooks, pencils, 3 ring binder and fine ruled loose leaf paper. What is it????!!!!!!
But these days are over, and now I can go to the office supply store any time I want, and wander and purchase one of these things if I like, and use it the SAME day :) Tomorrow is not something to fear, school days are long over. Tomorrow can be a play day or a work day.
These last few weeks of pretty much doing a bit of everything, has given new hope for many things to come in the future. New things tried out, and some tossed away. I attended a star box class this summer at the LNS and completed the class. I am not sure why, but glue is still fun, along with fun Christmas wax paper, and plain old cutting paper into shapes :) Along with having the best teacher, the class was made up of amazing stitchers who all had a blast making this star project. Adjustments had to be made (duh) and fabrics changed, but over all, the end was a crafty success :)
We got an email from my sister a few weeks back letting us know there was a new addition to her family. Well, I should say 2 new additions to the family :)
I am so happy for my sister and her husband!! I am looking forward to meeting them in person in a few weeks. I bet they have grown quite a bit already :)
So many new things alright! I started another new quilt this week. I was able to check out 4 new quilt shops this past week and trouble was had of course. But I have already made good use out of one of the purchases.
One more piece of excitement is Sarah Brown from Miladys Needle.
Each night after sewing some, I have been stitching. No, I cant sit still! I am constantly moving and doing. Even up until bed time. Back at it the next day.
So, since this post is enough to keep all of you for quite some time now, I will close. Thanks for all your patience in between posts. Blogging is a great thing- however it takes so much time. I think about putting a post on almost daily, but then get caught up in so many other things! LOL.
Until next time ladies and gentleman, I hope you are all enjoying your labor day!!!
