Quick Update

I didn't mean to go this long without posting and it really doesn't seem like it's been more than a few days. I guess that's what being busy does to a person.

Due to some things at work, I've been working full time, and some days overtime. It really takes away from creating anything even though I have been taking some little things to work on during my dinner break. Some days I have progress and others I spend talking to my co-workers.

This all means I have to devote my free time to housekeeping and cooking. I have stalled progress on my quilts for the QALs I'm taking part in. I have some other things out of the way now, so I'm going to keep chugging along on those this week. Pictures will come with progress.

As far as the things I've been working on, I did make some things for a friend for her bridal shower. I didn't get everything done, so those will come to her later, but I made her a purse, homemade Oreos (follow link to Smitten Kitchen for the recipe), and made a gift bag using the tutorial here: Petite Drawstring Bag at Modify Tradition. I did use a larger quilt block and adjusted from there. I dislike store bought gift bags, so finding this tutorial was a God send for me.

I haven't had too much time to tend to my garden the past couple weeks. Luckily, the rain has been taking care of getting my plants watered. There are weeds, but at this point I'm not too worried. I need to get in to harvest some items soon. Here's a peek at my sunflowers, watermelons, and corn.

Sunflowers have arrived!



That's all for now. I will post again once I've made some progress on some other projects. :)
