A New Addiction.....

I'm not sure how I managed to avoid it for so long, but I finally broke down and joined.....

Oh my goodness - there is so much......goodness on there!!  That being said I can totally see how it could be an epic epic EPIC time waster.  I love the idea of being able to keep all the stuff I want to make/create/craft/bake/cook/ and anything else I want to do all in one place - BUT I don't want to spend all my time 'pinning' at the computer and not actually 'creating'.  

I've already got some quilting ideas 'pinned' and a few other things that I can't wait to try.

If you haven't checked it out, its totally worth a look see but be careful it can get addictive!!  ;)  I'd love to see everyones boards if they have already set up a Pinterest account, and if anyone wants to see what I've got on the go so far please send me a message and I'll add you to my followers.  

Now I'm off to bed since I was up on Pinterest wayyyyy too late last night - I figure the first time on the site I'm allowed to get a little carried away and I will use some restraint from now on!  ;)

A little more Eye Spy Goodness.....

Another day and I managed to get another few minutes of sewing in - every little bit counts right?!?!?  At least thats what I keep telling myself!

I got 28 more Eye Spy squares done with a little help from Miss S.

I think all together I have somewhere between 60-80 squares completed so far. 

I'll lay them all out tomorrow and see how many more I need to have done to make even rows and start the squaring up process so I can start sewing the rows together.  Originally I wasn't going to square each one up but I know that some of my seams are off so I might as well do it RIGHT the first time rather than just winging it and hating what I have done.  

Day 15 of the Quiltapotamus 365 Project is in the books - not bad if I say so myself!!

Thank goodness its Friday!!  What a week and after tonight I'm ready for the weekend!!

So that being said lets say "TGIAS"!!  Thank Goodness Its Almost Saturday and head to bed!!  ;)

Sorry for the random 'extra' posts the last few days - trying to be as true as possible to my Quiltapotamus 365 Project and I'm grasping at straws today!!   My wonderful Mom and her husband are taking the girls this weekend so we can get some serious cleaning and organizing done without having two 'helpful' little girls underfoot.  I'm hoping that I can get an hour or two at my sewing machine in to work on the Eye Spy quilt or at least something sewing related and then I can share it with everyone!  

Hope you all have a fantastic weekend!

Random Cuteness!

I can't believe that Baby C will be 6 months old in 3 more weeks!!  Hes getting to be soooo big!!

He tried out the jolly jumper this afternoon and LOVED it!!

No sewing or cleaning on the horizon today - just hanging with my kidlets and playing - the rest can wait for another day......

Ahhhhh - its a MESS!!!

How oh how did I go from this incredibly beautiful, peaceful, serene space:

To this crazy mess?!?!

Well for starters I guess it doesn't help that we had to bring a couch and treadmill down into the space so that adds a bit to the clutter and I guess it helps that I've actually been SEWING!!  I have a few projects on the go but I think my absolute next project needs to be to clean this mess up.....!!  And you can't even see the stuff thats hiding behind the Tumbling Rubies quilt top on the treadmill (and yes, I need to start running again soon but thats a different post for a different day!!!).

I can't expect it to stay spotless - I'd love to say that I'm a super neat freak but thats just soooooo not me - but I would love to be able to walk into my sewing room and think 'ahhhh, this is a nice space to create in'.  So tomorrow I'll add 'clean and organize sewing room' to my list of stuff to do and hopefully I'll have a clean and organized space to sew in tomorrow night!
