Busy, Busy

Once again my camera is out of commission and it may be awhile before we can do anything about it this time. I feel lost without it and hope to have it snapping away again very soon. Until then, I will be sharing some older photos on my blog.

I have been steadily working on The Sparrow but am not quite as far along as I had hoped because I spent one day frogging a small section. I won't say which one. I will just let you see if you can find it when I am able to post an update picture! I am happy to announce that I just started on section 4 last night! That means I am on the home stretch!

I need to get my pen and paper back out so that I can resume making my "things to do" list. Maybe not having the list to fall back on has been one big reason my days have felt so off lately.

One list I have been working on is the pieces I would like to finish up by the end of the year. With the holidays coming up, I don't want to be too hard on myself so I am keeping them lean but mean! I am doing pretty good on my promise to not go crazy buying stash but every now and then I see a design that just begs to be added to the stash and I have already seen several market sneak peeks that will definitely find a home in my growing stash.

I haven't had very much time for the computer or my blog lately because of one thing or another and I don't see any signs of my beloved dull life returning any time soon. Hopefully within the next month or so. Harold decided he wanted a late birthday gift. Two German Chocolate cakes! One for home and one to take to work. The cake for home was gone within a day and he came home from work with an empty cake carrier. I told him that I was guessing but the guys either liked the cake or gagged on it and tossed it in the trash. He said they loved it and gobbled it up in no time.

All of sudden, out of the clear blue and with no warning our dryer died. It had been just fine the day before and suddenly it just decided enough was enough and fizzled out. What a rough week, running back and forth to the laundrymat but we now have a new dryer that I hope will last for a very very long time!

Until next time, may you have simple days and an uncluttered heart! Thanks so much for stopping by. I always enjoy your visits and comments.

Sounds like you've been busy! As for the dryer -- ugh! I hate when that happens! Or any appliance dying, for that matter! We had our fridge die last fall, and then two emergencies with our dryer this year. Luckily we had a guy who could fix it both times. Glad you have a new dryer and are back in the laundry "business!"

Good to hear from you Shari...and I agree, dull is good! Both my DH and I are much stressed these days between work and all sorts of other issues. I read a few blogs every day for stress relief but don't have much time for my own. So far I haven't seen hardly any new stash that I "had" to have. The only thing is a CHS sampler my LNS is featuring - I want the linen and silk pkg for it but it's a lot of money so I'm mulling that over. I've been able to resist most of the preview items for fall market luckily.
