hello, testing, testing....1.....2.....3....

Well, so much for LAST Sunday.

For some reason, I feel like I've been spinning my wheels, doing nothing important (read blog worthy).

Well, unless you count tidying the house, sorting a GAZILLION things, and finding clothes that actually fit the youngest two girls.

I have finally culled clothes that dont fit DD's #6 and #5.

They are in size 1 and 2 now and I still had 00 and 000 things in their baskets.....
Everything's been sorted, DD #5 is 'short' quite a few size 2's....will have to dig in DD #4's tub and sort her clothes out now too.

and YES, I use baskets for the 3 youngest girls, far less fuss about putting things away neatly, as long as it's IN the basket, it's away

Now, onto the good stuff.....PICTURES






This is my booty from http://monkeemaker.blogspot.com/
I won one of the prizes in her blog giveaway. It's a Monkee Sock, and supposed to be a bottle type holder 'thing', but I put mine to use as a fish food cover.
*note* chocolates didn't last very long at all......



More lovely bloggy give-away gifties...
Kate at http://katesquilting.blogspot.com/ made these inchies ...one inch square pieces of art.I love that they are Halloween type colors.


For now they are on the card they were sent in, but I have plans to frame them for next year.

Also, but not pictured, Jeanne sent me cute Halloween socks, they are orange with spiders on them

Was going to post a new picture of Ethel too, but the camera pics weren't flattering at all. She doesn't look as good 'solo' as she does mid quilt.

.....and no, I haven't forgottten......

Gratitudes

Dh, for putting up with the madness that is our family
children who outgrow clothes...and pass them on
a noisy house...it means healthy children
being able to blog, however infrequently
friends...who's blogs I read and thoroughly enjoy

a brief word from the wilderness.....

Ethel arrived at 7.30 p.m. last Friday night.

I sucessfully quilted my first quilt on Saturday, it is bound and I'm taking it to guild tonight.

Putting the Studio back to "right" is taking longer than I thought it would.

SO.....

I will try to be wordy and wise (and picture intense) on Sunday.

Saturday, DH is off to a miniature games tourny, I will be wrangling children...not conductive to blogging!

....and I am debating the pros and cons of registering as a business....

quickly....

Gratitudes
the Short Arm works well
