Hobby Lobby has not been good for my pocketbook lately...but I sure LOVE it!!!! When in there the other day for a ZIPPER....I happened upon this darling fleece and minky...in monkeys!!! now it just so happens my oldest daughters nickname for her unborn daughter is little monkey..and aqua is about my fav color right now......soooooo, I decided to make a taggy blanket for her little monkey...and since I had to buy $30.00 worth of ribbon...lol..I decided to make one for my other daughters unborn son....and her best friends baby which is due any week now. AND I can squeeze another one out to keep here at NeNes. I have to justify all that ribbon!!!!!!
First time I have ever worked with minky...a mess, but so soft and so worth the effort!!!!
So two of them are finished...2 more to go.....they are fast and easy...to make these 2 only took me about 3 hours from start to finish...Im loving these fast and easy projects!!!
So..how am I doing with my word of the year...RESOLVE.....
well...so far so good....
I have not bitten my fingernails in a week!!!!
Im back to walking every night......
Im back in the sewing room....
Still trying to learn the piano..its the hardest thing ever....
Iam eating a little bit healthier.....
BUT my resolve in the handbag area is weak...having spotted an aqua and white polka dot purse in the new Fossil catalog.....God help me.....theres a fossil shop 10 minutes away.
This weekend is a girls weekend for me. I have hung out with the same group of friends since high school...some 45 years....thru thick and thin...some of us have died, some have lost children, husbands, divorces...you name it....but still we hang tight. One of us is retiring from her nursing job and moving to Virginia...and we are seeing her off with a few events. Friday night its just 6 or 7 of us who are the closest to her having a slumber party at her house...which used to be her moms house and the hangout in high school!!! talk about memories!!! Then saturday night we will meet at a restaurant and there will be about 15 of us...and THEN because some gals couldnt make it saturday night we are having ANOTHER dinner monday night with them and most of the ones from fri and sat night!!! We all get together a few times a year and its always a hoot.....I must resolve to exercise madly to work off all the dinners!!!!
For those of you who follow my blog, the granny panties will be there too....of course!!!
Have a fun weekend peeps, you know I will!!!!
