I know it has been awhile since I lasted posted. I have no idea where time went. I planned on posting Wednesday, but I was here and there running around and crafting all day that it just slipped away. So I am hoping you didn't give up on me. LOL.
Back to Wednesday...
I finished my last bowl... if you'll remember this bowl.
It is now this bowl...
Now I am at the point of trying to figure out which ones I want for my wall. Please let me know your opinions. You all know I value them. I, with the help of Steve, will be drilling holes in my bowls this weekend and I only want to do three of them. So please cast your votes.
#1 All 3 of the new ones I just painted...
#2 the top one is a bright green that I will be darkening with stain... if chosen
or #3 same thing as #2 top bowl
I really can't decide so please tell me what you think.
I finally finished hand quilting the blocks of my quilt. After trying to figure out how to do it, and many nights of only a couple blocks at a time, and getting a callous on my thumb it turned out OK. I think. LOL
I now need to decide how to do the borders. I don't want a fancy design obviously. I also don't know how or what to make my lines with to quilt on. I want the lines to wash out obviously. If you have any hints please let me know so I can finish up my fall quilt. LOL. yea yea don't say it I already know. PROCRASTINATOR!!!!!!! LOL
Last night my microwave blew up while my children were here alone. That was a treat to get a call at work from my kids that the microwave is smoking. I have no idea what happened but my son was making microwave mac n cheese with no metal on the bowl. Next thing I know they said it was smoking. They called Steve first(before me) and he told them to unplug it from the wall and open the windows. So they did then went next door to their friends house til I got home from work. I open the door and the container had basically melted and the mac n cheese was black and hard as a rock. The microwave was old and had been acting up so I don't think it was my kids. LOL. But man did it stink in my house. It was worse than burnt popcorn!!!!! So now I have to buy a new one. Oh well, I've seen them pretty cheap at Wal-mart though Steve says he has one in his basement we can use.
OK a little venting. Short and sweet I promise ;-) I just found out the house my ex and I bought (that he is living in) has not had a payment made since September. The bank is calling my job looking for me to make the payments. The property taxes and insurance are paid out of escrow and there is not enough to cover them. I am so angry but my hands are tied and I can't afford the payments either. Looks like foreclosure here we come!!!! GRRR...... and I'm not even living there!!!!!! OK Done... short and sweet.
