Share Your Toys, Kids!

I was always one of those Moms  to teach my 3 kids to share their toys with their friends, let others play with them,  to take good care of their toys, pick up their toys before bedtime.      yada.... yada.... yada.....

Well, so what?

Gosh, how hard that must have been for them when they got something new and it was very special to them.  Now I know what they must have been going through in trying to share ALL their toys.

A lot of my toys are sewing and quilting related, so I don't mind sharing rulers, patterns, rotary cutters, and even my fabrics.  All the quilters I know are very generous and do the sharing thing too.  That's just the way we are.

Well, so what?

I can't do it..........I just can't! 

My latest toys are not sewing/quilting related and I just can't share them.    My Nook Color was given to me for my birthday last year, and I immediately bought the black vinyl cover to protect it. (in the picture on the RH side). 

For Christmas my sister, Sally, bought me this wild pink zebra striped cover and stand!  She knows me so well............it's just me!

Some Apps on the Nook need SD cards and I wanted to have plenty of room for them so went to Best Buy  right before Christmas and  the clerk directed me to the phone department for the card.  No problem..........bought the card.  Started looking at phones 'cause I had been wanting a Droid..........

Yup!   My Christmas present to myself;  my Samsung Droid phone....and I love it.

Now I can play Words with Friends on my Nook Color and my phone!   AND all 3 versions of Angry Birds, watch Netflix movies, U-Tube videos, quilting tutorials, get my email, post on Facebook, send a Tweet..........

Oh yeah........forgot to tell you, I do use it for a phone and some texting too!    I don't like the plain black protector cover (it isn't really me) and maybe I'll have to get a pink zebra one to match my Nook color. 

Or maybe I could just embellish it with pink glitter or glue pink rhinestones all over it.........mmmmh?  What do you think?

NO.........I can't share these........I just can't!

Thanks for visiting.

Pictures Talk!

Cutting, cutting, cutting for my ETSY Shop has kept me so busy here lately I'm relishing my little bit of sewing time I squeeze in here and there.

My recent sewing time results...... thought I'd just share with pictures!

Embroidering dishtowels at the same time as sewing.

Did some cutting for more jelly rolls too!

I'm sure a lot more projects would get finished faster if my quilting helper would not be doing this.......

Yup!  Somewhere along the line I lost the month of December....and still haven't found it.  

I was blessed with good sales in my ETSY shop this past holiday time...thanks to all my loyal buyers....and couldn't manage everything ....including putting up a Christmas tree, shopping, cooking and blogging.  Consequently I didn't blog and my shopping ended up being online gift cards for everyone.  Can you believe that one?  I usually make all my gifts for my grown kids and my grandkids..........but not this time.

Sooooooooooo......has everyone made New Years Resolutions?  

Wanna know what mine is?  

Well, you might not want to know, but I'm telling you anyway.  (After all this is my blog and I can do that.)  Besides.......if I keep saying it often enough and  to enough people, I might actually start doing it.




even get rid of these too.

Meet Lucy and Samantha.....litter sisters...approximately 4 months old.   (No...that's not what it looks like....it's some of their food they scattered in their litter area.)  They went to SA Spay clinic yesterday for their little tummy surgeries and are recuperating in a crate in my spare bathroom for a couple days.   They are part of  my ongoing "Trap/Fix/Release" cats thing that I am constantly doing. 

There are 5 more kittens to trap and get to the clinic in the next couple weeks.......so wish me luck....I'm going to need it.

In the meantime...........it's back to cutting more squares....cutting more jelly rolls....sewing more items and enjoying my quilting.
