So as you may recall I mentioned before what a crazy to-do list I've got going on over here. Well as of today I got every last thing for the week checked off.
#1: Make the last apron.
A few weeks ago my friend Brooke asked me if I could sew some practical yet pretty aprons for her and two other girls who are opening a little coffee shop in our church. I whipped up the first two lickety-split, but for some reason the last one had me dragging my feet. This week I had to get it done.
#2: Yucky outdoor chores, including (but not limited to) sweeping the pool, building a ramp for my now outdoor bunny hutch, weeding, edging, and putting a border around some of my formerly raised garden beds.
#3: Start doll quilt. Well shoot, I'm almost done already, which is crazy. Just gotta quilt and bind, and wham! Done!
#4: Work on do.Good Stitches quilt. I am currently having a love/hate relationship with this quilt, and I feel terribly guilty for inflicting such time-consuming blocks on my poor circle. I mean it's great in theory but in practice....gah. I don't even have decent pictures of my triangles to show so I'll just show you Jacey's, which are my favorites:
#5: Buy Thingummy 2.0. Sadly, a hawk smote the original Thingummy, which made me cry, Ilya get a wiggly chin, and Xander say, "Ha ha! We should buy ten more so that hawk will be all like, 'What?! I can't eat that many Thingummies!'" Erm. Yeah. That's my middlest son for you. Bob was despondent without her Thingummy, so we had to get a new one. There was a considerable size difference between the two but my concern was unfounded. Thingummy 2.0 and Bob are like peas and carrots now.
#6: Shop for food for 70+ kids. Ugh. Nuff said. Actually it went well and considering that I'm evil snack lady who makes kids eat real food, it didn't cost that much money. Yay!
#7: Make blocks 2 and 3 for Summer Sampler. I enjoyed these, except for the part where I put the Mosaic block together the wrong way. But then I decided I don't care, it's fine as is.
That was it. I mean on top of running a billion errands, having company, making and delivering food to a family with a new baby, and working on a new drawing...
And this was supposed to be my week to relax.
