10 things I'm Diggin'

I feel like it's been forever that I have connected with people. I've been living in my own little bubble. I want to give another shout out to all the awesome peeps that have been sending good vibes and just being awesome friends.

Anyhoo, enough of the "Wind Beneath My Wings" crap (look it up if you don't get the reference-I promise you, you will laugh.)Here are some things that I'm diggin' right now.

1. My new "do". I am so loving my hair right now and the best thing about it. I don't have to do anything to it. I just wake up and the curls are there. They have to be tamed a little but otherwise, it's good to go.

2. I've said it before and I will say it again. Busby Berkeley movies. LOVE LOVE LOVE THEM! Go to Netflix and put it in your queue. You will thank me for it.

3. Craftster! I have so much going on there right now. I was just made a Global Mod and I am excited to jump in and see what adventures come up. I also have a new Needlework Challenge going on (one pattern, many stitches) Go check it out now! That's an order!

4. Figuring out which bands/musicians have the most meaning through my life. So far, I have:
a-MC5. Thank you for coming along and smashing hippie crappy music. Kick out the Jams is awesome.
b-Edith Piaf-tragic and beautiful. If I could sing half as well as you, little sparrow, I will die a happy woman.
c-The Ramones-Antique Knives! That's what I'm into!
d-Willie Nelson-wonderful songwriter, amazing humanitarian and just damn hell of a guy. How can you not love Willie?
e-The Replacements-Paul Westerberg, I don't care if you are a drunk bastard, you still know how to write one hell of a song and make being screwed up very catchy.
f-The Hives-this is pretty much the only new band that I can listen to every day, for the rest of my life and not get tired of. Yes Mark, I know, I didn't care about them when we first started dating.
Good Lord, this list could go on and on....Buck Owens, Patsy Cline, Social D, The Jam, Run DMC, Bob Wills.....

5. Mark's blog: OMP's world. You just thought you knew the OMP.

6. And speaking of blogs, check out Mr.XStitch and he's new accomplice, Beefrnk. You can win prizes! Yeah for that!

7. Don't forget to pick up your patterns at Sewitsforyou. Check out her etsy site for cute patterns.

8. The beginning of March Madness. The only time, EVER I will pay attention to sports. The ACC tournament is really the only one to watch and UNC is the only team to care about.

9. Girl Scout cookies. Thin Mints+Freezer=Heaven

10. And last but not least, Life. It's pretty rad.

The Tinted Lady

I kinda forgot I started this piece, put it on the back burner and then finally came back to it. I did a "reverse" tint to her. Instead of tinting her, I decided to tint the rest of the pillow. The pattern vintage. I am really pleased how it turned it out. One is the pillow flat and the other is with the pillow stuffin'

36 feet of crafty goodness

Ummmmm, I may have a problem. JoAnn's had a sale on their floss (4 for a dollar) and then I had a 10% off coupon. I bought EVERY color DMC makes. My receipt was 36 feet long! The cashier was telling people over the PA system that she had someone buying "all of this floss" and "that the receipt was 36 feet long". The customers behind me were a little freaked out. I'm good on floss for a couple of months, unless I want to do something in just one color, then I'm a little screwed.

Flickr Tea Towel Swap

I am in a tea towel swap with some wonderful people on Flickr. Kunderwood sent quilt squares instead of a tea towel. I hope she likes what I did. I love the fact that the pineapples are happy.

I also did another swap with the mods on Craftster. I did this towel for Emily Flew

One the dad news front. He had to go back to the hospital because the doctor didn't stitch him up correctly and basically the inside stitches burst open. So, they vacuum sealed him back together. Yep, you heard me. They have something called a wound vac and it uses negative pressure to seal the wound. It's a type of therapy that heals the wound from the inside out. Despite the up's and down's he is in good spirits and should be home from the hospital soon. Thank everyone for your healing vibes and prayers.

It's been a long time

Hi Everyone-sorry it has been awhile since I've posted anything but between work and a sick dad, I've been a little swamped. Currently my dad is still in the hospital and not doing too well but he's a fighter and I know will bounce back. Anyhoo,,,I just wanted to check in and let everyone know that I didn't fall off the face of the Earth and I'm still around.

I also want to thank everyone for being so awesome and so supportive. You guys have really kept me going and kept me sane. Big hugs and kisses to all of you!
