scarf scarf scarf!

I am almost done with the pink puppy dog scarf for my little red headed friend!

I think tonight I will try to work on some more scarves! I am trying hard to keep the workout and sewing momentum going. I am doing a craft show in October and I am SO EXCITED!! I haven't done one for awhile so I am going to work on my display. Yippeee!

In other news, we are getting the 1 bedroom apartment upstairs and we are very excited! They are working on it now but soon we will have a real bedroom. Hopefully we can move in soon!

My new book Sew U Home Stretch by Wendy Mullin came today! I bought it here for $6 the other day. Because I clearly do not have enough projects started in my life...

But the very lovely and talented Missy Ballance has gifted me a bunch of new knit fabric and I am ready to wear some new clothing. :)

This weekend can't come fast enough!!

cross eyed cross stitching

Cross stitching seems like it can get boring...

Sometimes I need some boring repetition in my life. Like when Ryan and Baby are napping. I put a little Modern Family on and stitch count stitch count.

Saturday Shopping

I usually shop on Saturdays because Ryan works. This can be dangerous. But today it wasn't. I went to JoAnn's and sat around for like 3 hours. :) Lucky for me Simplicity patterns were $1 apiece. I have wanted that Built By Wendy pants pattern forever! Woo Hoo new Courderoys here I come! I mean next Saturday when maybe I can afford new fabric...

I also got some new fabric on sale to make a shirt.

And some pink fabrics for a cutie pie little girl's puppy scarf.

Also, I picked out a hoop to work on my new Zombie cross stitching! I have a few projects in mind, for a few great peeps. My brother has a baby on the way you know...

All in all a very fun day!

MMM we had homemade pierogis last night! I used potatoes, sour cream, chives, cheese and butter. I have no idea what amounts of anything and then I wrapped them in won ton wrappers and fried them in a little butter. Then we ate them with sour cream.

Worst meal ever for you, and total comfort food. and we loved every moment of it :)

Baby didn't get any so I think she was mad.

Now I can never have any more calories ever.

not even numbering out of disgrace...

So I bet you think I haven't been doing anything. Oh, but I have.

This weekend I worked a little on my little sister's baby's blanket

and I cut out some scarves...

All the while, my lazy, blurry boyfriend and dog(they couldn't be bothered to be photographed in focus) sat and watched a baseball game.

Well, I am lying a little. I was only productive Sunday night. Most of the other time I have been watching movies and playing games and readingThe first Gunslinger book by Stephen King. And ordering the second one online.

This week I vow to be more productive and to work out a million times more. and to find my Pilates video that has seemed to wander out of my house.

Having motivation problems today. I bought that really cute fabric to make my sister's baby(he isn't out yet) a blanket. Hopefully she doesn't read this. If she does than she has something to look forward to. I am having a hard time motivating myself to do just about anything right now. Please disregard the mattress pad, I am currently in the middle of 7 loads of laundry today...

This weekend went by too fast, all of them do.

I am making brownies in an attempt to motivate me, so far its not really working.

83 MORE kokeshi

See I told you I had kokeshi on the brain...

Tuesday, August 3, 2010


I am a little obsessed with Kokeshi dolls right now. Here is my newest scarf. I have a bunch more in mind. I need to go and get some fabric this weekend. I will be sewing away. Hopefully this can be a chill weekend cause I really feel like I need it.

Today I am doing my pilates video for the first time in awhile. I need a workout you know! The next three days should be going to the gym in the morning. My goal is 5 workouts a week. I can do it I can do it. I need to keep telling myself that!

Tonight: dinner - sewing - SLEEEEEEEP.

P.S. Thanks for the elephant scarf love! It makes me feel good :)

81 Scarf with a Scarf

So here is the cut out scarf with a scarf :) It was fun to sew up and I really like how it turned out.

Here it is on. It is pretty cozy.

The fact that I have been working also makes me happy. A shirt, a scarf, a tiny scarf for the elephant, it all involves me crafting. Which feels pretty good. I have more to work on tonight which gets my happy meter going.

Yesterday we went to the flea market. Unfortunately, I was too overwhelmed and ended up with nothing but a sunburn. Ryan, however, found some good stuff! A pair of rad sunglasses, a flannel, and a model of an anatomically correct human skull that he gets to glue together! Hopefully I will have better luck next month. I am hoping to wake up earlier and go earlier. It is definitely worth it!

80 cool hair star from Giant Dwarf!

I really love this star! You should get one too. Or get one of Giant Dwarf's star crowns! Or a bunch of felt. I pretty much loved her already and after meeting her I love her even more!
