Stitchin', Schoolin' and Stuff

Random musings and down right silly fodder from one extremely disorganized southern gal... no accounting for taste. Homeschooling Mom of 4 and VERY proud of it!

~New Project... The Name of God~

I started my new big project on May 15th. It is The Name of God by My Big Toe Designs. It is being done on 28ct Lambswool Jobelan with Victoria Clayton silks in JewelWeed and Buckwheat Honey. The Buckwheat has a beautiful sheen to it in person. I am loving Vikki's silks. The quality, along with her excellent customer service makes me an addict. LOL

Here is the picture from today.

and how it looked on May 18th.

I am really enjoying this one. The border is a little more intensive than Love so it will surely take longer.

~My Awwww... Moment for Today...~

We are driving to little D's teeball game. He is talking to Gran (MIL) on his Daddy's cell phone. Then, he wanted to talk to his Aunt. As he is talking to her, I guess she wanted to know where Baby T was and what she was doing. Little D says so very sweetly... "She is sitting right in her seat, looking at me with those big beautiful eyes." My heart just melted. Ok, so we do talk a lot about her eyes and other people comment on them but for a 6 year old to pick that up and translate it into his own terms, it was just very sweet.

And, to go with that comment... here are those big, beautiful eyes.

Oh, and here is the person responsible for that comment. Having just lost another tooth, he has big, beautiful eyes too! LOL

Tag... I'm it...

I have been tagged by Mipa. The biggest problem being that I don't have 7 others to tag as most of who I do know has already been tapped - lol. Hmmmm.... so I tag the only people I know that haven't been: Jaime Jill Jen Michelle and Venessa

Here are the rules: Each player starts with 7 random facts/habits about themselves. People who are tagged need to write on their own blog about their seven things, as well as these rules. You need to choose 7 people to get tagged and list their names. Don’t forget to leave them a comment telling them they have been tagged and to read your blog!

1) I worked as a Police Cadet out of High School. I wanted to be a police officer but decided after 2 years that I wanted to be a Mommy more and didn't want my children to wonder if I would be coming home each day.

2) I am an aspiring Country Singer. I wish American Idol had been around when I was younger. LOL

3) I didn't learn to cook until I was 18, out on my own and hungry. ;)

4) Most of my friends live in my computer vs IRL. I feel like some of my online friends are truer and know me better than the few I have IRL.

5) I am a horrible housekeeper. When I read about people making beds daily and doing spring cleaning, I feel less than adequate.

6) My exDH is actually one of my best friends. Sometimes I do want to clobber him, though.

7) Smacking when eating, turning up a glass several times when it is empty so that the ice clangs and my DH biting his fingernails are my worst pet peeves.

Whew - that was harder than I thought. Thanks, MiPa.
