Time Fly’s

Standard

You’ed think I would have time to set down have a moments peace. To put some of the thoughts that keep running around in my head to pen. Alas not! All last week as a mad dash to clean and clean and yet more cleaning to have the Mother In Law down… *sigh* 

It really does not help that Ranger Rabbit was not wanting her to come either. She is a NON crafter , and everything thing is always about how it’s at home or something she has done.  We took her to a local thrift mall and she was oh this is way too much and its not that high at home.. This place by reason of the other places I think are cheap by the way and Ranger Rabbit and I like to go and just look on Sunday after noons, but now I am sure she has ruined it for me.  The we went to a more upscale recycle place.. I adore Mrs Lucille’s I don’t ever buy too much but the creative vibe gets me in to the mood of doing something with Fiber/Fabric or something… she walked around as a buzz kill the whole time, I don’t know how you can be so mad with all the bright colored dressers and the funky dishes 

But before that Ranger Rabbit and I went with the Littlest Monster to his Kindergarden Field trip. that was so much fun to have just 3 of us. As the baby he pretty much gets the shaft when one on one time with both parents. It was just a nice fun day with the boys. I don’t really care for the zoo aka I have been doing this trip with the school for 5 years now LOL but the time together was the best. 

 

I have a few wip’s from fiber to fabric to

Photos of cleaning out my poor DTG printer its been way too long since I clean it. Then a bag for a customer. I have always been intrigued by Adems Tn, and now I want to find some good books over the Bell Witch! I love a good haunting. If you ask my brother he will never go back to that farm and spead lime/litter as he said everything that could go haywire did and even a few things like running a huge floater tire off a rim … but still that was him!

The 9 patch was pieced by my 100 year old great grandmother, about 25 years ago , she was 103 when she passed and quilted to the very end but from around 95-100 she only did blocks.

Dresden plates where done by her mother and my grandmother and I have very gently cleaned them an going to set them some how I love them so. My grandmother passed away many years before her mother. At that time I did not ever under stand when she told me kids should not go before the parent. My grand mother was 67 at the time, of her passing.  Only after John Bryant did I ever really think about what she said.

On a happy note, 484 yards of a dk’ih weight yarn I was spinning on earlier this month

I love anything hexagon, I have a quilt , Grandmothers Garden that was worked on by two great grandmothers and a grandmother. Both sides of my family worked on it, and its the one of the OMG we have to get before XYZ happens to the house. I love that quilt so much. One day I will pull it out of the trunk to show blogland but as of today its too dang cold! What is up with it being 32 at the end of March, I am ready to get out side and in the dirt.

So I am looking on pintrest and I found a kit by I Hart Tula Pink,  went to the site , ordered and have been hooked 2013-02-23 11.47.04 2013-03-04 17.16.41 2013-03-23 12.44.28

I have been taking knitting to baseball and I know what has happened but I just don’t have the mojo I once had so this little hexi fits my bill , the Ranger Rabbit is not happy that I stole a tool box , but I am looking for something funky and cute but not found it yet.

This week my main WIP has been trying to get the Middle Heathen well. So there has not been much anything going on.

I have been working on my Radio Way quilt at my kitchen table, and that is NOT my favorite place to sew by a long shot. I have friends who only use the dinning table, but I hate pulling and putting things up.  So this is on my Featherweight vs my new Pfaff, as I don’t want to go to the shop and have the Middle Heathen to get my fragile dad sick. As of now its not been too bad dealing with the pull out yay fun and clean up… eww.

I can not believe I have not knit or spun ANYTHING in a week.. You know it’s bad in my house when I set down and not have something going. I have a pair of socks that need the toes closed, and a scarf that needs ends woven, then the never ending blanket I will post when I have time to pull it all out
