I'm Still Counting ...

Blessings that is. Thank you all for your kind words. I knew you all would have me chuckling and not feeling so ... so ... so arg!!!! Friday was a much, much better day. I haven't made too much progress on my skirt for May(d) for Me - it seems as school is winding down for the boys everything is picking up.


I did manage to make a quick little drawstring bag for these teeny-tiny mini-con transformers that Henry got for his birthday ... 12 of them. oy.




Recognize the fabric?


I'm so predictable.

The tutorial was very easy to follow. The size she has you make (which is what I did) would make a nice little jewlery bag ... let's start thinking Christmas / teacher gifts! ;-) The only thing I did differently was make my own drawstring out of the red linen I used for John's hat.



Anywho; just thought I would let you know that I am indeed still alive. We have been eating bagels and english muffins for breakfast; the boys are still very health and strong; my mom quietly checked the DVD back in and then rechecked it out on my card to buy us some more time (literally) - meanwhile DH truely saved the day (and $30) by diassembling the DVD player and removing the disc (which is now safely back at the library ... the DVD and the player still work); I have regained full use of my neck, shoulder, and ankle; the McDonalds CD's somehow disappeared ... "I don't know" must have thrown them in the trash where they belonged; the straps on the stroller continue to be toddler proof (for now); and naptime is still my saving grace. (If needed, explaination here).

Very cute little bag, indeed! Glad to hear everyone's hanging in there - I wish my 4 year-old would still nap! She gave it up, oh, 2 years ago...ugh.
