It has been three...yes 3...months since my last post. I know that sounds like an admission in a 12 step group meeting....btw...is there a 12 step group for bloggers? I'm not and was not trying to stop blogging....I so desperately needed a break and time to attend to my business.
IHAN isn't my only business....really....my Biggest and Best Business is raising 2 sons to become great men, friends, employees and spouses. Oh yes, one more thing..... taking care of myself so as not to spend any more time with medical professionals that are not related to me or friends.
You want to see all the sewing I've done in the past three months? I'll show you if you promise not to laugh....you have to promise FIRST. I didn't hear you....louder please.... (now your family in the other room thinks your nuts for yelling at a computer screen and I'm laughing my bum off :)
Embroidered key chains to hold the boys thumb drives for school....yep....it was so time consuming and difficult...NOT. Twenty minute quickie and I'm hoping this helps them to locate and not loose their thumb drives.
First Day of School 2015
The boys and I also have done some needle felting this summer....
Zachary made a snake....
and gave it a leash...wasn't sure if he planned on walking the snake or dragging it... but he had fun making it.
Aaron made a little character with fun eyes....our first attempts at needle felting.
The base of mine was started at the 577 Fiber Arts Show in June and I brought it home and finished it with the boys.
Can you tell what it is? Use your imagination....and squint a little if necessary... .I wanted it to look like a fairy looking up in the night sky at a glowing moon. I gave her a red pony tail and a multi-colored wing. Are you asking yourself...what is the white and blue? In my imagination....those are her legs stretched out and she is wearing leggings. If you can't see it well....squint more...a whole lot more....until you can't see it at all and can only remember what I "said" it was....giggles.
There is quite an amazing piece of art that has been crocheted and isn't actually considered art until humans interact with it. It was SOOOOO much fun!
Swinging in the clouds.
They played so hard they needed a drink of water. Clearly Zach played the hardest....after all he split out the seat of his pants!
No fancy quilting to show off....just some of what I've been up to in the last three months. Now the boys are back in school, I've got my fingers crossed and I'm hoping to get back to the joys of stitching.
A new family member? It's true....we have another son-in-law as of this past Saturday.
Madeline and Cody were married on a beautiful sunny day and the wedding was everything we had hoped it would be. May I just say....Catherine and William have nothing on Madeline and Cody!!! Giggles
Our daughters center to left: Madeline, Megan, Krista....followed by friends.
Bride and Groom with one of three sets of parents.
I was so very grateful to feel well enough to attend the wedding and felt such immense gratitude to be in the presence of so many family members and friends.
There was only one moment in the day when I thought I just might fall over. It was time for the toasts and Aaron and Zach were missing. I looked outside and found them.....they had sweet talked someone out of their phone so as to play a game. Once interrupted....Aaron jumped up and headed for the door.
I asked him if he was ready to head in for the toast....his reply...a resounding yes! I asked if he was sure...he said yes again. Then I said...."REALLY?"
This is what happens to children who play games on phones!!! They don't realize they are not properly dressed. I laughed so hard I almost fell over. All I can say is at least the girls were fully dressed!
