Wednesday night I worked on birthday gifts for Sarabeth and Addie to give to one of their preschool classmates. His birthday party is tomorrow. I understand that Grayson and Addie are best buds. He is a BIG Spiderman fan -- probably where Addie got her obsession with Spiderman. I did a Spiderman embroidery on a sweatshirt and also embroidered Spiderman on a towel for him.
Tonight was a pizza night for us.....I had no energy to cook so we ordered a pizza. Takeout delivery is wonderful!
We have a busy day tomorrow. Sarabeth's first soccer game is tomorrow afternoon. Addison is staying with us while Robin goes to a scrapping session. Sarabeth will be with us tomorrow night while Joy and Danny work a concert at the arena. And the house has to be cleaned! Where is my magic wand or fairy godmother!
Luck, love, and laughter

Here are a few pages from My Sewing Journal.
This is the fairy costume that I made for Addison for Halloween 2005. Robin picked out the pattern and material and I must admit that it was a challenge to make.

I finished the baby blanket last night that Joy asked me to make for her for a baby gift. The baby is a little girl and Joy wanted something with baseball on it! Seems the new daddy has been or is associated with baseball. I searched the freebie designs on line and finally found a cute design with little girl holding a bat on annthegran's web site. I managed to get enough juice out of my camera's battery to get a couple of pictures. (Ordered a new battery tonight).
Tonight I embroidered a burp pad that Tina asked me to make for her. The prefolded diapers make wonderful burp pads. I trimmed the edge with rick rack. I also put a crystal Rock Star design on a tee shirt for Addison. Sorry no pictures available.
I keep looking at the stash of sewing and/or embroidery projects that are piling up in my sewing room. I think it's time to make a list and check it off as I finish projects. Then there is the scrapbooking that I want to do. There just are not enough hours in the day or should I say that I no longer have the stamina to go so many hours in one day.
Had a great time yesterday with Robin. We haven't had a Mother Daughter day in a long, long time.
