February 26th Almost friday

I got a new keyboard for my computer and it clicks I love typing on it. lol So I have decided to give it another go at trying to make some quilts. so far I have been playing it safe and making small baby blankets a few easy whole cloths ones and a couple pieced ones. I am the type of person who that starts a project likes to get it done and see the finished project fast. so that is why I mainly stick to things like purses aprons zippered pouches. Things I can do in a day or two. With 3 kids running around I tend to only be able to sew in 1/2 hour increments. So trying to tackle a quilt for me is a daunting task. planning it out cutting piecing sewing pinning quilting binding, man that just seems like a lot, but after looking at the awesome blog Sonnet of the Moon I have to start quilting again. After looking at all her awesome quilts I have the urge to get back on the quilting wagon. I really want to be a more patient and meticulous person and I am thinking quilting might help me do that. I learn by doing and have been so afraid to start quilting and spend a lot of unnecessary money on the things I don't really need. So I am just going to stick to basic quilts for now and when I have more time space and money do more elaborate ones.
So I am not going to totally abandon my sewing of purses that I love making I might actually have to make a few more to sell so I can just afford a quilting hobby. lol
So my obsessions have changed yet again. I love being able to expand my interests and not pigeon hole my self as just a SAHM or just a crafter, before I even was a SAHM I was a copy/fax technician that got greasy everyday and played with gizmos and gadgets. I am still in love with gizmos gadgets and love getting greasy and tearing things apart and putting them back together( that might be like quilting)but now I love to create things with my hands that I can use. Like aprons and purses, and cute clothes for my kid. Well now I am off to browse through some new phones I am drooling over I really want this one,The blackberry flip, but i will increase my cell bill by like 20 extra dollars, just to have internet. its hard to justify that cause I am home 90%of the day with internet on my computer. Aww but one can dream. I am sure in a few months a new phone will come out that I will want to once I can I will try to practice patience.

February 24th

Where the hell Have I been? I haven't blogged in over a month. I don't get a whole lot of time to sit down and write anymore its sort of depressing and probably why I have been in such a funk lately. I am feeling pretty Jadded against the world lately. I don't know why I care so much what everybody else does or has and I compare myself to others way to often. I need a better measuring stick. I do realize that there will always be some one better off then me and I also know that there are many others that are worse off then me and wish they could live my life. I don't have it that hard I am a very lucky person and I am thankful everyday but I can't help my feeling that float around in my head.
Well enough of the pity party. I have been up to some good. I sold some purses and a couple wrist pouches with matching key chains and I sold two Nursing covers and I have orders for two more. I made and sold and very cute cupcake apron,that I made this weekend.



I actually made two aprons this weekend while hanging out with my mom. She decided to some up Saturday and stay till Monday I was so excited, and Happy for her to come stay with me. my mom is my best friend I am the luckiest daughter. The kids are doing great, testing me for sure. Which most days I fail horrible. I need to exercise better control of my yelling. I never ever thought I would grow up and become a yeller but 3 kids will do that to you. Its a struggle everyday to not just throw my hands up in the air and yell I quit! but this is one job you just can't quit. lol Well I better sign off and get my house in order.
