Finally, I finished something :)

Well, the weekend is over :( Saturday was so nice and pretty outside. I didn't really get any sewing done. I did finish ironing my 4 patches for the Orange Crush, so that was a good thing! Spent most of the day outside plundering around and cleaning up the yard. Here is a photo of Andrew cleaning out one of the horse stalls....he just loves this job :) Richard had to work Friday night and got home somewhere around 9am on Saturday morning. He and Hunter loaded up Jingle Bell, Hunter's new horse, and took him to the vet. We had him gelded and Hunter wanted to go. The funny thing about it was Hunter said he wanted to go so that he could talk Jingle Bells through the surgery since he had it done a few weeks ago! We all had to laugh and explained to him that Jingle Bell's surgery would be a little different than his.


Saturday night we went into town to eat at Giovanni's Pizza. I had the craving for their baked spaghetti. After that we headed on to Walmart. Our Walmart is so generic, I don't like it at all! But anyway, Richard and Andrew needed to pick up some supplies for Turkey hunting. Of course I only came out with a quart of Reese's Cup ice cream!! mmmmmm!!!!


Today has been so nasty and rainy! We even had some sleet for a few minutes. A few days ago it hit 90 degrees and tomorrow they are giving snow showers! Crazy weather!!!


After breakfast this morning Richard went out to work on the tiller and till up for the garden. We are not putting alot of veggies out this year since we will be so busy working on the house this summer. Tomorrow I will pick up some veggie plants. While he was doing that I was doing this...

I can't believe that I actually started something and finished it in the same day. Maybe that is what I needed to get me back in the grove! I just love this Bucket Tote! It was really easy to make, actually easier than what I thought it would be. I may make another one for Mom for Mother's Day! Now I will spend the rest of the evening cleaning up my mess.


I mentioned the other night about the Dear Jane quilt! Thank you all for all the information and advice. You all have been very helpful. I do believe that I will try the Dear Jane quilt. I love working on my Civil War quilt and I think both of them would be beautiful to display in the new house...if we ever get it finished. I am in no big hurry to finish either one and don't think I will even try to set a deadline. Well, maybe I will....let's just say "I want to have them both finished within the next 5 years" :)

And last I will leave you with another photo of Donkey, he is asleep in his little house. :)

That made me laugh about Hunter and Jingle Bells. Mind you good job Jingle Bells didn't have his operation first or you would never have got Hunter to the doctors.

love and hugs xxx

hehehe....I agree with Gina, I had to laugh at Hunter & Jingle Bells stories. Ahhh, the age of innocent!

OOOo the bucket tote come out very nicely. I have done 3 of those in the past year, they make quick and great gifts!!

And as always Donkey humors me!

Love the bucket tote! It's so way cute. Glad you were able to finish something. I was that way yesterday, I just needed to make something that wasn't wedding related and could be finished!

The bag turned out great! It's always nice to start something and get it finished in the same day. Otherwise it often ends up in the pile of projects I intend to finish. I have quite a few of those!
It was sweet that your son wanted to help his new horse through a tough time!

Love the bag, I have made two and have picked out the fabric to make one for my mum. Also Donkey is too cute.

Good story about Hunter and the horse. My DS always has to go in and watch surgeries too.
I've made the bucket bag tote several times--very easy project. You did a good job.

That cat cracks me up. They say if an animal sleeps on it's back it's content well he's the most content cat I've ever seen. The bucket tote is so pretty I don't think I've seen that pattern before.

That purse is adorable!!! It sounds like you got over your fear of purse making. You really are lucky that Hunter's surgery was before Jingle Bell's. I can just picture this conversation going on at school...can't you??
