week 30

Holy cow!! Where has this year gone??

My hoop shot with a few closeups. 

I am working on this #sacrepigeon so I added a little pigeon.

 My #summeroflovechallenge piece. 
I had too many ideas and no time left, so I just picked one and started!!

My little granddot found a red nose and had some fun with it

Although I am not super creative, I jumped on the felt board bandwagon. 
Soooo fun!!

My first two attempts. Pretty basic, but I will pinterest the heck out of layouts. LOL

What's up with all y'all?  Talk to me......

Week 28

Wow, it's been a jam packed month. No excuses, just don't have blogging at the top of my to-do list.

Let's see what's been happening......................

My hoop. Lots of new stuff

 A few closeups

It's hot, really hot. Freakishly hot.                               The grapes are lookin good!!

The dot is graduating from esthetician school and the baby girl enjoys a mcflurry 

Still wanting to make something like one of these. 
Got some fabric, got some patterns, need to make some time.
I'm really bad about giving my hobby priority once in awhile. Bad habit.

                  Walked the dog...a lot.                                  Got bit by bugs......a lot.

 Pre ordered my hallmark trek ornaments. Only 2 this year.....bummer

A little water fun (mud for the grand) in the sun. 

 What's your summer like? Projects? Talk to me people.

Week 23

Lots going so gets in the way of creativity more than I would like. Some good life, some ukky life, some mundane life. It's all good in the end.

Hoop view of week 23 plus a close up of the last few motifs
Cat ears for London, t-shirt cuz I bought way too many, cherry season and donut day!

Treated myself to a white Levi® jacket
I wasn't sure, but I am sure I love it now.

I want to walk in the Rose, white and blue parade on the fourth. Looking to make a mid teens walking ensemble to fit in with the suffragette theme of the group. These are my ideal, but I will probably go cheap and easy with a navy walking skirt, white blouse and some spats to mask my tennies.

Got a double yolker. How fun is that?

Been keeping active...down 2.6 lbs

Next to the last nephew graduated from highschool. Goooo coyotes!

Celebrated national Donut Day with a simple glazed donut.
And maybe a chocolate covered cake donut with coconut too. LOL

Like I said, lots of life. House hunting, MIL ambulance ride to emergency (totally unnecessary), dot, dog, birthdays and holidays. Life is quite a ride!

How's life treating you?

week 21 and counting

Can you believe the year is nearly half over already? It's true, the older you get, the faster time goes by. I'm tellin' ya.....wowzers!

Lots happening this week. More house hunting and more exploring and a little good grammie time.

Fruit stands abound along the delta. Cherries are in full swing and they won't last long. Strawberries and stone fruits are just starting.

Yummmmmmmmmm is everywhere and I am going to enjoy it while it lasts.

My hoop is growing. 
I've added a fitbit symbol, flag, red nose, 007, road signs, 
and I can't remember what else.

Trying a new set up and added lots of "love" to my project list.

Even pulled out a vintage hoop for this one.

Me on red nose day and my hydrangea is full bloom.

This week has already started with a bang and I hope it slows down because I don't need another emergency room and ambulance ride for a long while. Not me, my 87 MIL and it was totally an over reaction and totally unnecessary. OY and a half!

Hope your week is as exciting, but it good ways.

week 20

Been a fun and busy couple of weeks. 

Still pluggin away at my #1yearofstitches hoop
Week 20 hoop view

The cat decided to sneak into my cabinet while I was getting something and then I found him trying to get out. Crazy cat!

Made beignets. Easy and yummy and messy.

A little LOVE from down under.

Cahin stitching a little more LOVE
I'm sensing a theme......LOL

A little goofing in Oregon with some of my bible study chicks.

 Somebody turns five this week and had a little Chuck E. Cheese fun the day before her party and then the party. Sleeping beauty was the theme.

Also cleaned my sewing room and the dot cleaned her closet out which means I need to re-clean my sewing room. Oy.

Lots of boring chores and a couple trips to Oakhurst to look at houses. Every time we find something we both like, it's already snapped up. It's hard to house hunt from afar and by the time you get there, well, you know the story.
Looking into building. If the fees aren't too ridiculous (yuba county I'm talking to you) we just may start from scratch.
