surprise finds

I took a quick jaunt over to the fabric store the other day. I was looking for some particular fabric which I couldn't find :( While there I took a peek at the remant bin and found these cute little bits begging to come home with me. It was not a day of big spending, a few dollars later and I was on my way.

The first fabrics are so sweet, fruity and lime green, green, green. The other fabric looks very boy-ish & non-feminine; all about the play. I know exactly what I'm going to make, but I'll keep that a secret until I complete the projects which will hopefully be tonight. First I have to create the patterns.

I didn't end up getting much done yesterday, I spent my free moments curled up in a chair with a hot cup of tea & my cozy throw reading. That's where my hubby left me when he went to work and that's where he found me when he returned. What a treat, something I don't do very often, but once in a while it is so nice to just sit and do nothing but read. Especially when dinner is well taken care of cooking slowly in the crock pot, the kidlets are busy playing with each other and no one notices that mumma's lap is empty, except the dog. Have I introduced you yet to my shadow? He follows me day and night, room to room. He is half shitzu, half lhasa apso. His name is Spencer and he has been a member of our home for the past 3 years.

My dh purchased our cute little boy back in January 2004. We thought the timing was perfect, the boys were 6 & 4 years old, no longer babies they would be a great help in the care of our new pet. Little did I know that Spencer was not the only new baby in our house. It was only a week and a half later that I found out I was pregnant! Of course once you purchased a puppy, it is very hard to return a puppy. Especially when you have two boys excited and attached to the newest member of the family. I admit I was pretty attached too! So Spencer remained and grew up along side my ever growing belly, though it wasn't until many months later that I found out my one baby was actually two babies. But I'll save that story for another time.


  1. Ah, thems were the days!! Man, I thought entertaining two kids was time consuming, you have four wonderful ones! Not including P, of course! LOL I'm still figuring out time management...I'm not doing so great! LOL I'm enjoying them! Today, my DD and I put on a story time play thing and we took turns at the "head of the class" (like school) telling eachother stories. I told her about Jona and the "big fish", Noah with the "big boat" and David and the "great big giant, bigger than the house" LOL! She told me stories of her school under water and cars flying. Imagination is great! Meanwhile, my DS, R was playing with his toys and didn't want to join in with story time until we both did our little bow to end the show!

  2. Oh Karla, LOL, I don't know if we are ever supposed to "manage time." I think time just keeps ticking and we adjust our expectations appropriately. It sounds like you are doing wonderfully with your two wee ones and that makes it all worth while. Thanks for dropping by :)
