So I kinda disappeared there didn't I? Sorry guys..it's been a crazy house here. My blog disappearance started because in the last post I promised to share bathroom pictures in the next post. BUT-remember when our car got crunched? Well, it was being repaired last week and for a crazy series of events, we never were able to get a rental. (How does a car rental not have a car to rent for 5 days in a row?) So we weren't able to bring home the last pieces of molding and most importantly the curtain rod to hang the curtains which bring the whole bathroom together. So bathroom pictures will come soon.
The garden is overflowing..I'll need to share pictures of the tomato monsters that are taking over a huge chunk of not just our garden, but our yard. Lots of hours are being clocked weeding the whole thing.
Do you like cotton candy? My mom and I were in charge of the family reunion this year and rented a cotton candy maker. It was really my sister Eliza's idea-yes that would be my daughter's name sake. :) Funny how when my sister was born I felt so sorry for her to be named such a cheesy old fashioned name. My dad even has a letter that I wrote to him begging him to convince my mom to change the name.
My strike offs arrived today! (The first chunks of fabric to review.) I have babied these designs for over six months now and today is the first time I have actually seen them on fabric. What a surreal and fulfilling thing. I was warned to expect the colors to be a little wackier than what I sent in, so I've been prepared to tinker with the colors. It's good to know people who have been through this already. ;) So there is a massive amount of fabric splayed over the kitchen counter tops as I weed through it. It is FUN. The other cool thing about finally having them is that I will get to give you guys some sneak peeks! I've been waiting in case the pattern needed to be changed a bit. Again-it's good to know people who have been through this. But all is good with the pattern and you'll see some sneekies soon!
Alright - I'm off! I've got about 5 posts worth of pictures to share, so you'll be hearing from me again real soon.
