And Breathe.....

I know, I know, I disappeared for about 2 weeks... These past 14 days (give or take) were jam packed! Somewhere between 2 exams in Anatomy and Physiology class, nursing a migraine for 2 straight days, working on LadyBug's birthday quilt, making wedding invitations for my brother's wedding this summer, planning LadyBug's birthday party, dealing with Cuddle Bug's pink eye, and basic childcare, I managed to turn 27!


Oh and I managed to miss the drawing for own giveaway... Someone please pass the Hershey's Pot of Gold! Sigh

I am happy to announce that I finally did get around to drawing a name for the Abecedaire ornament chart! Karen is the lucky winner!

I woke up this morning dedicated to being stress free. Today is LadyBug's first birthday and we are celebrating! I still can't believe it's been a year already! Happy birthday to my sweet girl!! We're having her party on Saturday afternoon, so there's still work to be done (including the finishing touches on her quilt).

I do have a few pictures to share. First up is the little messenger bag I made for Cuddle Bug's friend for her birthday. I used this tutorial again, but this time I made a few changes. Most importantly, I added an extra inch to the length of the lining fabric to compensate for the trim. We put a little workbook inside for the birthday girl too.

And this is the darling little kit I won from Marjorie! This is at the top of my "to start" list :) Thank you Marjorie!

I hope you are all enjoying a care-free week! Thank you all for your sweet, sweet comments! I cherish them :)

Happy Birthday to you both! Life does have a habit of interfering with things doesn't it.

Love that Gingerbread house. I've not seen that before!

1st birthdays are so special!
I hope things slow down and you can do something for you soon.
UGH on anatomy and physiology...dreaded, dreaded class...I remember the days.
Thank God I don't have to study it anymore!

Karen said...

Happy birthday to you both! Love that bag - so cute! I hope you are past the exams and migraines for a while. It kind of cuts into the stitching time, huh?

Kathy said...

My goodness you have been a busy girl. What a cute bag!!! Love it. You are so creative.

Wow--you do need a break, Kim!

Secondly: that bag is adorable--love the fabric choices you made!

Thirdly: I really admire you for juggling everything as well as you do!

Kim said...

Don't forget to take lots and lots of pictures of everything you do with the kids....I wish I had more photos to look back on. I know I did tons of things for the kids and with them but with going to school,, running a house and mothering I can barely remember so much of it!

Happy birthday Kim!
Happy sewing too...when you can :0)
