This time of year drives me nuts! Seems like there is so much to do and shopping to be done, and not knowing what to buy......it just drives me crazy! It was so much more fun when the kids were little and gave me a list and I stood in line for hours waiting for my turn to get a Cabbage Patch Doll. And then such joy on the kid's faces when they ripped the paper off those boxes and discovered the strange names of their new "babies". Eikes those dolls had weird names! Did you ever notice? I think they must have had a group of weird people whose jobs it was just to come up with all those goofy combinations. I think we had a Corina Pethora and a Walter Jacob. Naturally, they soon were shortened to Corrie and Wally though. lol Thank God! I actually found Corrie in a box full of old Barbie dolls this week. I wonder if my daughter might still want her? Probably not!
I haven't accomplished much sewing this week. I did join a side swap to the Bitty Block group though and had a fun time making polaroid blocks. I took on 3 groups of 12. You fussy cut the middle at 2 1/2 inches square and then cut side and top strips of 1 inch, and a bottom of 1 1/2 inches so it looks like a polaroid picture when you're done.
I think everyone had a fun time picking their blocks. I know I am enjoying deciding when choosing mine from other swappers.
My next project is to start/finish 2 sets of 12 each of bird bitty blocks. Birds are on the docket for December and I figured as long as I already was sending out a bunch of envelopes, I might as well stick a bird in some for the swappers that decided to join that swap. I must be nuts! (No comments from the peanut gallery, please..................) I'm having company for dinner tonight, I need to grocery shop for stuff for that, get my sewing stuff off the table and groom Toby today too. Eikes! Then, in about 30 minutes hubby will be home from his church meeting and want breakfast.......(a ritual on Sundays.) I suppose I should get a move on!! You all have a great Sunday! Relax for me! Later............
