Give Thanks...

Happy Thanksgiving!
Things are beginning to buzz here. One child has arrived to make two children at home. The other two arrive tonight and we will be a complete family again. Tomorrow I am hosting dinner for 24. Yikes...I have work to do. I don't have time to list all of the things that I am thankful for, there are just too many things! Let me just say that I am blessed and I am very thankful.

A lesson learned...

My computer had to be taken back to the factory settings. I lost photos that I had put on the computer and had not taken the time to burn to a cd. My son lost his Itunes playlist that took him weeks to load. There is a lesson to be learned here: back up your computer. Do it now. Don't wait. Learn from a great mistake-maker!

Quilt Squares

Here is the beginning of my crazy cat quilt... I am using black and white fabric from my stash...hopefully I'll have enough because I have no idea where and when I got it!

The center kitties are machine embroidered using a design disk from Loralie called Sophistikitties. They just make me laugh! I'm not particularly a "Cat" person although I do have a love/hate relationship with Miss Tigerlily...I love her until she claws at my furniture!!!

An Update...

As I glanced at my blog page today, I realized that I haven't been accomplishing much lately. I offer these photos of placemats and monogrammed napkins that I finished up for a customer.
I am in a constant struggle to gain a balance in my life...and it all stems from my creative disorganization. I am being swallowed up by laundry, housework, unfinished projects and the ideas that are always running through my head! I have recently addressed the household chaos by joining up with Flylady again. Babysteps, she says and I am trying. I also subscribed to a Mega Menu Mailer at Yesterday I did a mega grocery shopping trip and fixed about 10 meals. Today I am finishing up with 10 more and then I am going to treat myself to a trip to my favorite yarn shop! I'm hoping now that I have 20 meals ready I will have more time for creativity. I'll let you know how it goes...stay tuned.
