Meet Cheyenne

This is my great niece Cheyenne. She is 7 months (or close to it) and is the spitting image of her daddy. And she has her momma's (my niece) temper. But she is a sweet baby.

Thought for the day...

If my calculations are correct; SLINKY + ESCALATOR = EVERLASTING FUN

My bathroom is done!!

I finally got the shower fixed, everything REscrubbed(stupid plumber making a mess on my walls...grumble grumble grumble) I got my granny's old Neil the Frog canisters, napkin holder out on the counter. And I got a great deal on eBay for two Neil the Frog hanging planters/candle holders which look good hanging from the hooks in the ceiling. Oh and I FINALLY found a cheap 84" long shower curtain for the shower in there, most I found they wanted $120 for. I think not!!And it is so AWESOME to have my very own bathroom(for the time being)
No nasty boy messes, my own personal sanctuary.

Beginnings of my Bolognese sauce

Quilt top #3

My mom got me this for christmas 2 years ago. I need to finish this one too.

Quilt top #2

this is a quilt i was making for our "shag van". I already made curtains out of the center fabric and blue tiger stripe. And then this was going to go on the bed hommy made out of the massive speaker box. But the motor blew up before i could finish it. Do me thinks i will add another round to it to beef up the size then finish it.

Quilt top #1

My granny made me this back in 89. It never has been finished. And trust me the pic does no justice(or maybe it does) on the color. Magents and navy. I need th finish it off but then again i have two more tat need it too.

Hubby's new trailer

Ronnie is running a trailer race on the 25th. The rules are 15 laps around the track, first to finish with thier trailer still hooked on wins. They want he trailrs to be decorated, or you can pull a boat or a camp trailer or a pop up tent but it must be popped up. His sister is making two dummy's a man to lay on the couch and a woman to sit in the chair. It's gonna be a mess!

Way to go sis!

I have a history of shitty birthdays, 16 had to go bowling with my drunk father(I LOATHE bowling) 18 had to bail my mom out of jail, 19 my niece got ran over, 21 first car wreck and it just keeps going, up until last year when we had to sell our house and hubby got fired.
Well this year looks to be different!!!
My sister called last night and asked if we wanted to go to the ZZ Top/Aerosmith concert tonight, of course I replied HELL YEAH!!!
Some guy she works with had 4 tickets and then something came up and they can't go so he GAVE them to my sister and her boyfriend, so they called and invited us!
And the best part is Ronnie is actually going to go!!!
Usually I have to beg him and the only ones he agrees to is Jimmy Buffett and Rob Zombie but he is excited about seeing ZZ Top!
Anyway this week is looking to be a good one!!!

Babies cause braces

Ok i am not trying to ignore my blog. It just that not much is going on. We took my mammaw to the omni imax to see a grand canyon movie. Then i have been working,still not used to full time work. And now what little crafty bits i have been trying to finish up will have to wait longer. I was putting a baby down in the crib when i felt a tendon in my wrist pop. So i am in my ols reliable wrist brace for a week. UNluckily for me i have done this around six times so i know what it feels like and how to treat it. If it is still bothering me in a week then i will go to the doctor because that will be tendonitist setting in, and he can shove a needle in there and pump it full of steroids. I did tell you i have done this before.
