Mommy's Afternoon Off...ahhhh!

My 2 little ones spent from 11AM to 4PM with MIL. They haven't spent much time with her in the last week and she is going on a trip next week. So what did I do with my time?



Manga Dork is at home for the second day with the cold Wild Child shared with her. Soooo...we watched a stupid movie and That 70s show while I scrapped. I'll give you a hint what movie we watched.



He has Billy Ray's Achey Breaky haircut..."Is that where you wanna be when Jesus comes back?"..."That's what I'm talkin' about."..."Life's a garden, dig it!"..."Don't church it up son."..."Keep that skoal baby." Can you guess?



The quilt giveaway I posted earlier inspired me to share one of my creations. My Mom is an avid quilter and I sometimes get sucked in!




This is a closeup of the cute novelty fabric I used. I was a little lazy and "tacked" it instead of handquilting.
The yellow spreading in the back pasture is gorgeous! It is a really hazy day here.
Over at AMR I participated in a 3x3 deco square swap. I had a ton of Halloween paper I needed to use. This was fun! It felt good to get creative!


Happy Wednesday!

Love the quilt. I do not have the patience to sew....I'm terrible at it! So I envy all of those who make such beautiful works of art.....=)

Looks like you enjoyed your day.

Those Deco Squares are so cute!! I wonder which one I will get, I can't wait to get them! Did I tell you that after I sent mine out I realized I forgot to put the backs on them? I had to pm her and ask if she would do that for me if I sent them, thankfully she said yes, LOL!!!!
