Crazy, busy Saturday


It started easy enough . . .

Slept in until 8 !!!!! That NEVER happens !!

Took the dogs out . . . put on a movie . . . 

turned off the movie after 30 mins . . . 

Made breakfast, took dogs out, went to the post office (my Gardener's Quilt Block is on it's way), library, grocery store . . . 

Came home and put all the groceries away, did dishes . . . it's NOON !!!!

Where did my morning go?

Talked to BFF and she said she decided not to let things get to her today. If it got done, great. . . if it didn't, there's Monday and all next week.

You know what?  She's right. Everyone is home on Saturday. I'm very fortunate to be a full-time homemaker and my time all week is mine to schedule and plan as I choose. If I don't get to sew or stitch on Saturday, it's not the end of the world. I need to make and keep my family a priority and the weekends are theirs.

So I'm off to begin dinner . . . Chicken Paprikash. The temperature has dropped 20-30 degrees since yesterday, so it's really good soup weather :)

I did manage to work on the doll cradle. 


The sides and ends of the cradle. I found the flowers, they are rub-ons and adhered to the white acrylic paint very easily. I did a gloss, water-based varnish over them to make sure they didn't rub back off. This is a Christmas gift for my great-niece who is four :)

When I was at the library this morning, these leaves were all over the sidewalk. Not sure what the name of the tree is, but you have to love a tree that gives you hearts for leaves :)

Thanks for stopping by,

Wishing you a creative day.

Hmmm. Weren't we just having that conversation? LOL I love the leaf. Don't know what the tree is, either. That cradle is just adorable. You've done such a great job on it. So hard to believe this is the same piece!
