i had time to:
-shower a real shower. shave my legs kind of shower.
-eat a good...sit down quiet lunch. and snack on a yummy juicy pear.
-get a start on the enormous pile of laundry
-straighten up the kid toys everywhere
-read my mail and write back some good words
-sort my fabric and get to work on my comment treats...

just in time for me to:
-slice off the tip of my prettiest pointing finger.

  1. Lin.. your so cute!! I'm glad you got some alone time to yourself, thats always nice to have. I tried calling you today and was sad to not get your voice on the other side.

  2. I can't believe how much you got done. Tyce is sooooooo busy that when he goes down for a nap...I pretty much collapse. It is nice to read a good book every now and then huh? Sorry about your finger...that sucks...but the "peace" picture was cute! I am pretty lucky...Tyce takes a 2-4 hour nap every day, and trust me, he need them!!

    Love ya!

  3. Hey Lins-

    Cutting that fabric so fast you sliced your pretty finger huh? ahh man thats the worst! Did ya really slice the tip off or just cut it? Your bags look so cute. I love that you mixed all kinds of fabric together. What a great idea! So cute! When are you thinkin that you want to set up a booth? I know it goes till Oct. but whenever is good for me. I just need to get busy and start making some stuff too! Your super fast! I might be going to montana tomorrow night or maybe just early friday morning- So for sure when I get back we'll have to get together and plan out some sewing days. Im coming home on Tuesday, if we even go. Im not sure what the plan is. Max is getting his first 2 teeth. Hes so grumpy, its so not like him! Poor kid. Shots and teeth all at the same time. Well hope ya have a great night. I'll call ya tomorrow and see what your up to and let ya know what the plan is for the weekend. Are you guys gonna do anything fun for the 24th? Well ta ta. Call ya in the morning. -Ash

  4. I love when the babies take naps (usually for me, they NEVER nap at the same time)!! Sometimes I do try to enjoy the quiet time and get things done and sometimes I just end up taking a nap too = )

  5. Linds, I absolutely love this picture of Lucas' feet. Babe number 2 is asleep right now and I don't know what to do with myself. I should have made a list like you. Babe number 1 is with his daddy at the lake. It hasn't been this quiet in our house day or night for awhile. So far, I've had time to flat iron my hair, empty the dishwasher, collect various trains and tracks from around the house, fold a load of laundry, and hot glue the ribbon back onto my baby box. I know I shouldn't be worrying about this stuff already but I'm getting a little restless. But not a word to Dave... I need this restless time to rest, right?

  6. OH NO!!! Maaaan, and then your like freaking out because you just sliced the tip off your finger, babe is screaming in the background, blood is everywhere - ahhh not on the fabric - I can soooo see this happening to me. I hope it heals up fast for you :)
