Not much this week. all quite. I have to take some time today and go through the x-mas gift corner of the room and sort through to see who I have forgotten!! I need to make two embroidery hoop pictures for extra gifts so I will cut material and iron on pics today /

I have a few movies recorded  on dvr so will sit and watch them this afternoon and work on them at the same time. Movies always makes it go faster!  I have to move my couch around first thing today I moved my sewing chair and tables a while ago but don't like the angle I find I get a crink in my neck  so am moving it all back!

I have been cleaning out clutter in the house all week. gave away a few boxed of books to make room on the book shelves for newer arthurs but I backed up all my books over time on e-book formate so I still have the older ones.  then got rid of all old vhs and cassettes that are no good anymore. boy did I get alot of spare shelving!! I have it all filled up now with craft boxes so I can find things alot easier.Well hope you all have a great week. speak to you again next time.

It's cold here now in Texas time to sit and hand sew for a while under my lap quilts and watch movies!!
I wish!!

We finally got all the insurance work done for my sons truck and he finally got his checks so I can have a bit of breathing room now and get on with my x-mas stuff.

Today I'm working on a lap quilt for a neighbour for x-mas. I had a bunch of  extra blocks sitting around and decided there was enough to make a nice middle of a quilt so thats what I have started on this morning. I will make solid borders to go around then I'll justr have to get a back material. I tried to get into my stash but all the boxes with presents to be wrapped are pilled in the way so I'll go in there later after kyle is gone to work. I'm sure I'll make too much noise for him as he is sleeping in the next room!  he is wearing ear plugs now as the machine woke him up I guess he thought I'd stop but I handed him a packet of ear plugs from his fathers drawer!! they come in handy!!

My husband bought us a wii machine for our early x-mas he got me the wii fit program and set it up at the weekend. the rotton thing tells him if I have exercised for that day !  needless to say I got caught  on monday so had to work on it yesterday@!  I will use it here in a little bit after I get the center of the quilt done it will help loosen my muscles ( I'll be like jello for a while good reason to sit still at the machine!!)  I did finish my afghan last week but I keep looking at it and think I'll have to add more rows it doesnt look wide enough for my liking I will have to lock  up the pets this time though if I work on it again they wouldn't leave me alone last time and it drove me crazy.  our poor tree is having a hard time surviving this year. Mocha (our youngest cat) ate the lights stole the star and threw the ornaments to the puppies to play ball with!  I will have to take it  apart later today and re decorate it I bought none breakable balls this time and a cheap set of small lights hopefully they will last better and then I duct tapped the tree stand and skirt to the table to make it harder for her to drag it down. so we will see! glad I didnt get a real tree like we used to she would have climbed to the top!!

well I'd better get going hope you all have a great week speak to you soon
