It is late but I just had to download these pictures off my camera and crop them to show you all this! My son is 2 1/2 and he just got out of the tub from his bath and Larry was on the phone talking to his father. Well Caleb just had to talk to PopPop! So Philip (pop pop) was talking away to him on speaker phone and he asked him about something and Caleb got up and ran right over and picked up a car and held it front of the phone and would look right into the call display part to see if he could see him!!! It was so cute...he thought that Phil could actually see all the things he held up to the phone! He hauled out every dinky car and whatever else he could find in his toy closet to show his pop pop! It was too funny! We were all in stitches laughing. I cropped all the pictures as much as I could...most of them I had to cut him out almost completely but I just wanted you to see all the cars that he so proudly showed off to his grampy!

I am a Slacker today!

I have no ambition today! I played trains with my son all morning and in the afternoon I packed up one of my dolls to be shipped out and made a card to go with and that was about it! I never once sat down at my sewing table! My husband came home from work early and told me that he was taking me out to dinner at the restaurant where we had our first date! He even reserved the table we sat at on that date! I didn't even remember which one that was...he remembers everything! I was wonderful to get out and have dinner and talk. We very rarely get out together unless you classify a trip to the grocery store a know the sad part is we do. I am posting a couple of pics of my latest dolls. Well I guess it is only going to be one picture today...I forgot Larry cleaned out all the pictures off the computer and put them on CD...and I haven't the slightest clue in what safe place he put that! :o( This one I have been working on for quit awhile...I am one of those people that have ten things on the go and nothing finished...I have tried to start one thing and finish it before moving on to the next but I find I work better if I can jump from one thing to the next then I can work on what I am in the mood to work on and not force myself to something when really don't want to....I am bad for that! :o( But it works for me! I find that I get more accomplished that way! Well it is after 11 and I am not going to start something now so I am going to pour myself a bath and go to bed! Tomorrow is a new day! :o)

My sewing buddy!!!

I would like you to meet Davis! She is a great cat! I have had her for a little over a year. (I took her away from her owner because she was not taking care of her.) She loves attention but only on her terms! And she never eats anything but dry catfood! She won't even eat a crumb of food off the floor! So it is great I can leave anything out and she will not touch it.

She is always at my feet when I am sewing! No matter where she is in the house if she hears me sit down in the office and turn on the sewing machine she is right there under my feet! I do not know how many times that she has been rubbing up against my legs and flopped herself down right on my sewing foot and the machine has taken off on full speed scaring me half to death!

It has taken me awhile to get this post done (I wanted better pictures) :o( I wanted to do it a few weeks ago but I have come to find out that she really doesn't like her picture being taken! I got the first one of her under the table where she always is and as soon as she realized what I was doing she took off under Larry's desk....So the next shot is of her being all like " Don't be taking a picture of ME!" Then she finally turned her head and I got the last shot so you could see how pretty she is...I have tried on several occasions to get a better picture of her...but this is as good as it gets! Prissy little thing she is!

On to the Laundry Room!!

Well I did not get my little girl listed tonight! I DID get her finished but not in time to take pictures outside and the ones I took inside were terrible so I decided to hold off in listing her so that I can take pictures of her to do her justice! :o)

I had big plans for getting a lot done on my dolls this week! The girls are home for March Break so I thought I would have it made and have tons of time to get stuff done....boy was I wrong!!! This has been my house for the last three days....

How many of you have a husband that insists that he bring every power tool know to man in the house to get anything done??!! Try cooking a pot pie in this mess!!! I don't know how many times I tripped over him bent over the chop saw while I was trying to make dinner! I only had to put up with that for 2 days in my kitchen!

BUT I guess I can not complain too much because the trim and baseboards are up in my laundryroom! My oldest is painting it right now! She has been priming and taping for the last two days and I told her she could put on the first coat of ORANGE!!!! ......WELL let me tell you it better darken up with the second coat or Larry will never let me live down this paint choice!!! MAN IS SHE BRIGHT!!! :o( Thank goodness I didn't paint my kitchen this color like I had soo desparately wanted! I would have been living in a cave! I actually have COLOR in my house I am soo excited!!! I will post pictures when it is done....should be in a week or two at the rate I am going! No it has to be sooner than that! I NEED to do laundry! :o(

What I have been working on!

I have been making a few things for a local craft store this week! I met this lady who loves my work and she told me anytime that I wanted to put something in her booth I was more than welcome! The first picture is of a cute little Annie with crazy pigtails!

This one is made from a pattern from Ragg Bagg Babys. She is to cute...I wonder how many times we actually say "No, No!" to little kids!

I am also working on a bunny in a basket for Easter. I should get back to him! I am almost done. I want to get him finished tonight...that is my GOAL!! :o)
