Hey, all!

Yeah, yeah, I know, it's been awhile since I've posted, but just plain ole busy around here. To start off the month, we celebrated my daughter's 25th birthday with a big backyard/pool party. She said she invited all her facebook friends! Lucky for us they didn't all show up, but there was still a pretty big crowd. We made most of the food, which included dozens and dozens of cupcakes. I wish I had pics, but I'm still waiting for her to upload them, grrr. I think the last of the guests left around 2am. I'm glad she had a wonderful time.


Just this last weekend we went to Las Vegas. I hadn't been there in such a long time, it's not that far (well, not really, about a 5 hour drive), but I just didn't have the interest to visit. Now, I want to go back!! We saw Jersey Boys, great show!! The weekend went by so fast; we walked, shopped, ate and just basically hung out at the lounge and listened to good music. I didn't gamble, not my thing, maybe that's why I never bothered to go, but there is so much more to do than gamble. Oh yeah, but you still need to bring a lot of cash!! Here's our view out the window.


I'm tired of my curtains in my kitchen, so I've decided to make new ones. I had this idea to make matching curtains and table cloth. I went to Cost Plus Worldmarket and bought two tablecloths, one is going to be the curtains.


This is going to be such a simple project, I don't know why I haven't finished it yet!

Enjoy the weekend!

Okay, didn't win, but ....

No, I didn't win the Singer Futura Embroidery and Sewing machine in last week's contest at the Craft Dept., marthastewart.com. But I'm so excited to be one of the lucky winners to win Martha's new sewing book!!

Hopefully, this will inspire me to get back to sewing!
