Thank you blogland!

Some new coasters I made with Amy Butler fabric

Yay! More than 2 people signed up for the giveaway! I'm looking forward to picking a random winner on Saturday and sending the girl off to someone. I'm in the process of making one for myself but my project has stalled...life just keeps getting in the way of my sewing.

I attempted to make a new ironing board cover last week and that project was a complete and utter mess. I know you can buy one pretty inexpensively, but my recently inflated sewing ego would not let me. Instead of spending 5 dollars I had to go and spend (waste) 20 on fabric, not to mention the 3 precious "free time" hours I gave up to attempt the project. I think that is why the next project I did was the coasters above. It was a sure thing.

Anderson and Jake have gotten into a new hobby of their own. It entails lots of biting, hitting and hair pulling passed back and forth from one brother to another. This morning was absolutely crazy! Anderson insisted on stealing every object that Jake picked up and Jake responded with some serious corporal punishment. He even emphasizes his hitting with "uh, uh, uh" sounds to increase the drama. I had to get them out of the house, so thankfully my sis, Grant and Claire were free for lunch. We did some strolling around the outdoor mall and ate at the family favorite, Baja Fresh.
