Yes, I'm still alive. :) Thank you to everyone checking up on me. I'm just busy. I haven't left the house for 2 weeks except to go to church. Taking the kids to the park? Dustin. Grocery Shopping? Dustin. Library duties with kids? Dustin. Cooking? (ok-that happens at home but it's illustrating the picture.) Dustin. Bank? Dustin.
We make a point of trying to go out once a week on a date, we've been part of a babysitting co-op for a few years and it's been so wonderful to have a 4 hour block of time every Friday night that we know we will be going out for. But the last two weeks were canceled for various reasons. Tonight-we have a 5 hour date and I am giddy. We're going to have dinner, see Batman and go for a drive in the mountains. I cant wait to see if the rest of the world actually still exists. And to get to the end of this work haul, I am seriously in need of a little R & R.
Here's a fun little tutorial I put together a while back, it's going in with my cupcake pincushion pattern as a cute topper idea. However, I've been putting them on everything. Bags, hair, pencils. You name it! They're really easy and the tutorial is straight from my pattern so you can see how they are written. Let me know what you think! Take a look over at the sidebar-I spruced a tiny bit. :) OH-and for my mother's sake, I know that there is an "r" missing from the word "fabric" in the tutorial. It has been fixed and won't appear misspelled in the pattern. But I'm being lazy and leaving it there for now! Ha!
Thanks for listening-please bear with me for a little bit longer while I finish up the immediate things that need to be done. :) The plus side is there are quite a few free patterns and fun tutorials that will be showing up here pretty soon. All things that will show up as an extra in the patterns, so I figure it just makes sense to make them available for download too.
