What a way to spend President's Day!!!!!!!!!!!

I've been having fun playing with my new Cricut that Rich gave me for Christmas. I was lucky enough to win a Pooh and Friends cartridge on Ebay. It came in the mail Saturday. So today I decided to play around with it. I love Eeyore so decided to cut him first. After trial and error I finally got all the pieces cut. In the above photo of him....he is not glued together. I need to find my Xyron so I can run the tiny pieces through it and then assemble him.

I've been having so much fun playing with my Cricut that Rich gave me for Christmas. I have been lucky enough to win auctions on Ebay for 6 new cartridges. I'm really looking forward to receiving the Animal Kingdom cartridge (photo above). Since we have hundreds of photos that we have taken at Wildlife Safari in Winston, Oregon.

I just received the Tie the Knot cartridge and have been busy cutting die cuts for 3 weddings I'm working on right now. Can't believe that one of the weddings that I'm working on has already ended in divorce.

I would get more scrapbooking done if I would get my supplies organized. The story of my life in my crafting area. Of course, Rich tells me if I would just work on one project at a time I would be more organized! Yeah, right! It ain't a goin' to working on only one project!

It's been about 10 years since I have knitted any projects. Rich asked me to make him a winter hat....he has about 5 or 6 hats that I have made him...he keeps misplacing them. Most of the time I crochet them...decided to dig out the knitting needles and knit him one.

After an hour of trial and error I finally decided on a pattern. Wow....can't believe how rusty my knitting was at the beginning of the's all starting to come back now.

I'll post a photo when I get it finished!

Hexagon Jewel Quilt

As of my Hexagon Jewel Quilt that I've been sewing when I have a few moments. It is done using the English paper piecing method. Where you see the white running stitches in the hexagon....that will be removed. Each diamond in the quilt is a different two alike! I have finished about 3/4 of the quilt top....1/4 to go!

I was going to surround the diamonds with green....Rich suggested that I use black...and it really makes the diamonds pop!!!!! When the quilt is completed it will be Rich's quilt!

Super Bowl Sunday

Today is the big day for Rich....his beloved Super Bowl. It's only 10:30am....and he's already watching all the pre-game programs. The Super Bowl party goodies are ready for this afternoon. We're having Barbeque Chicken Wings, Potato Salad, Chips, Dips and Chocolate Chip Cookies. Oh, I can't forget the Coke Zero and Diet Dr. Pepper.

While Rich is watching all his programs I'll be working on my Grandmother's Flower Garden quilt that I'm English paper piecing. I'll post a photo later.

So everyone enjoy your day whether you are watching the Super Bowl or doing something else that you enjoy!
