Is it a bad sign that it is only Wednesday and I am already having one of those weeks? On Monday I locked my keys in my car when I dropped Jaxon off at preschool. I called AAA and they had a local truck dispatched within half an hour. I stood in the cold, windy parking lot with the driver for over an hour trying to get into my car...at which point he gave up. I didn't know they were allowed to do that. The director of the preschool drove me to work and Charlie brought my extra set of keys down when he got off work (an 1.5 hour drive). So I spent the day at work without my dress shoes (skirt and snow boots, anyone?), phone, laptop, wallet, or lunch. *sigh*
Then yesterday we had a weather change (lots of rain) and of course my sinuses FREAKED out and now I am laid up with a horrible sinus headache. UGH!
I am camped out on the couch with some work...but in between projects I get good behavior time to do handwork...
Quilting the pineapples! Yes, the sneaky peek was a pineapple! And I am planning a little block tutorial soon.
I rotate between the laptop and the pineapples, but always have the iPad for movie watching. Thanks to Netflix instant watch I have found a new favorite movie. Not in the way that Toy Story 3 and Inception were my favorites of 2010, but in the way that Mega Shark 3: Megalodon is my favorite bad movie. Mega Piranha is definitely up there. Here is an ACTUAL screen grab from the film.
Yes, that is a member of "special forces" bicycle kicking a giant piranha. This is what cheers me up when I am sick!
Also, I finished my February postcards for the Fabric Postcard Swap. I somehow forgot to take a picture of my Valentine card, but you can see it here at Julia's blog.
This is an everyday card that hasn't been received yet so keep it on the down low!
I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed with both work commitments and my crafty agenda. Ohio University is on 10 week quarters (for one more year, and then we go to 14 week semesters). That means from about the third week of the quarter until about the eighth week, my blog gets very little love. I'm trying to be better about that, but here we are in week five and I haven't blogged in two weeks! Take for example my recent trip to IKEA! Prime blogging material! Of course, I picked up some fabric, but also found this towel rack on clearance for $9.
I have no need to hang towels on it, but quilts? Yes please!
I don't really have a place for it, so I put it in the corner of our dining room. Probably not the best place -- quilts and food don't usually mix -- but it is at least a temporary home.
I also picked up a table for Jaxon's room so his growing Lego collection could have a home. He loves it!
I've been thinking about what I want to get done -- crafty-wise -- in the month of February. Here's the list so far...
- Pineapple Wall Quilt
- Valentine's "Wreath" (pieces cut)
- Valentine's Pillow (supplies purchased)
- Ticker Tape Quilt for Old Red Barn Co. (pieces cut, didn't buy enough backing)
- Hideaway Quilt (still need more supplies)
- Pattern Pact February (I've selected my pattern for this month, have you?)
Shew! I need to get on task!
