Here are my finishes for the day! I am so happy about how they turned out! First is my sewing machine mat. It has a pocket and turned out darling!
Now I think I need to get some pink scissors since the orange ones clash so badly with the material, not that you can tell in my orange pictures!

September 22, 2009
Outside my window... a dark, humid night tapping at the glass.
I am thinking... how silly some of the women are on dancing with the stars.
I am thankful for... good friends, good music and good times.
From the kitchen... dishes from dinner yet to be done, the smell of the crockpot chicken we had for dinner, a family well fed.
I am wearing... pink pajama bottoms and tank top.
I am creating... today...wedding decorations and programs for a dear friend.
I am going... to sit and enjoy my glass of tea.
I am reading... my Daughter's homework sheets.
I am hoping... to sleep well tonight.
I am hearing... my Husband practicing on his acoustic guitar...I love the sound of that!
Around the house... sounds of music, sleeping dogs, the end of the day.
One of my favorite things... being able to help my friends with their projects.

September 14, 2009
Outside my window... the sun is shining, the cicada's are buzzing in the trees...summer has cast her cloak on us for a final farewell before the new season arrives.
I am thinking... how unusual it is being in such a quiet house...I'm the only one here...that hasn't happened in a LONG while!
I am thankful for... the beautiful sunny day.
From the kitchen... the sounds of my coffee maker sighing. It wants to be used for coffee instead of the hot water I run through it constantly for my tea.
I am wearing... jeans and a tshirt a lovely shade of pinky melon.
I am creating... embroideries for my secret angel and another secret swap partner.
I am going... to be very busy the rest of the week!
I am reading... The Time Travelers Wife...very good book. I wanted to read the book before I see the movie, it always helps to give insight to the little things they just aren't able to convey on film.
I am hoping... to get caught up on my laundry. *gasp* *snort* *chuckle* *guffaw*
I am hearing... the whine of the fan in my laptop (still no desktop computer :( ) The low pitched rushing of the refrigerator running. The occasional creak of the door or windows as the sun warms them and they shift in their casings...who said it was quiet around here???
Around the house... my Daughter's things everywhere...on my desk, on the family room floor, on the kitchen table, the dining room table, the stairs... she is like a tornado on steroids!
One of my favorite things... this will sound odd...I have terrible allergies and go through life pretty much not smelling anything. On the rare occasion I have my sense of smell, usually only for 5 minutes or less, I like to run to my children and smell them. The sweet smell of my Daughter and whatever lotion is her preferred for the day. The slightly sweaty, but not unpleasant, smell of a Son who has been out in the sun. The scent of my Son's deodorant mixed with his naturally pleasant body aroma. One of my favorite things, and much missed.
Here are a couple of giveaways for you to check out, just click on the picture:

Outside my window... The lawn was cut, the mulch laid and weeds pulled.
I am thinking... about how I am loving the way my new sewing machine cover is turning out!
I am thankful for... my Husband and our long marriage.
From the kitchen... a yummy taco-ish dip from my sil, potato and cheese filled perogies and ceasar salad. Sounds weird together, but the beany-cheesey dip was great on the perogies!
I am wearing... a summery dress in pink, orange and yellow.
I am creating... a sewing machine cover and mat.
I am going... to bed in a few minutes!
I am reading... lots of blogs!
I am hoping... tomorrow will be a good day for my kids, it's the first day of school.
I am hearing... the quiet of a house gone to bed... my dog's breathing as he lay's sleeping in my lap.
Around the house... NO LAUNDRY! I folded it all and put it away! Yay me!
One of my favorite things... watching a movie with the whole family! Tonight it was Inkheart. Enough action for the boys, a youngish girl for the Daughter to identify with and enough of a storyline for me to be entertained!

I have to take it to the "computer docotor" today. As we all know, medical bills are outrageous. I'm sure the "computer doctor" won't be any different.
What I'm most concerned about is the fact that I was in the process of transferring a couple of free block of the months (which I am woefully behind on) and recent family pictures to my memory stick when my computer froze. Keep your fingers crossed that the hard drive is okay and I won't lose my information.
I should have known better. My old lap top went through TWO hard drives. I don't have the best luck with computers.
I am using my children's computer to make this post. Needless to say, I won't be spending so much time online for the next few days. At least I should be able to get more accomplished around the house (yeah, right!) and be able to do more stitching and sewing!
I had a surprised planned for everyone, but until my computer is all better, it will have to wait. Hope to be back soon...
