Since the cool girls are posting their next projects I will too. Above is my next project. My goal is to finish it before spring. Although I do need a Bobbi crocheting lesson first ;)

(Thanks B)

I am so glad you are officially here ;)

I have been wanting to sew these pillows for over a year now and I finally got to do it yesterday. Bobbi and I bought this fabric last summer for only 99¢ a yard (possibly the best deal ever!). We might have been the only people in Sioux Falls to buy it. But we could not have been more excited.

Finally project complete ;)

it's bobbi's fault...

Normally I would not be on ebay looking at vintage Suitcases. But Bobbi has ruined me ;) I saw this suitcase the other day and no one had bid on of course I had to. Oddly enough I am the only one who was bidding on it and i got it for $10. It is so cute I had to have it. I wonder what a girl does with a million suitcases.

happy my car

September 15, 2000 is the day my car came home with me. I strange is it that a girl would know this. My yellow bug was and is my dream car, so September 15 is a very special day. If for some reason I ever have to get a new car, I am buying the exact same thing.

Happy 8 years!

(The photo above it my car in the happiest place ever. I am pretty sure she wants to live there too ;)

p.s. my co-workers think I am nuts for knowing my car's birthday...

this week...

Saturday was a lot of fun at the Sidewalk Arts Festival...although it was pretty miserable in the afternoon. It started raining at about 2:30 pm and kept on going. Everything in the Flatwear Jewelry tent was wet. I think I finally have everything dried out. Maybe the next event I will do will be inside.

A special thanks to my wonderful friends (Janet, Cassie & Bobbi) who helped me on Saturday. I truly never could have done it without you. I owe you guys! Cass you're next ;)

I don't have much else to report on this week. I LOVE the weather. I even love it when its cloudy, windy and cold. I know I am just strange.

Other than that I have been working, thinking about making soup and visiting Cassie in her new house ;)

Tonight Janet and I are going fabric shopping and I am so excited. I have been thinking about sewing a lot here lately. Maybe its time to pull out the half-done quilt and finish it this winter.

Happy Fall!
