Upcoming Projects

I like working at Joann's because while I put away bolts of fabric I think of all the great things I can make.

I've got the greatest idea for a baby blanket for Merly. I don't know very much about quilting so this is going to be and experimental mix between a quilt and baby blanket. I plan to buy the fabric Wednesday before work. I hope it's still there. While I'm working I see great fabric, but when I go back to buy it it's gone. This has happened with fabric I saw for Leah and Stephanie.

I got supplies for Jimmy's tooth fairy pillow yesterday. I plan to start that this Saturday.

I got two new patterns. Something for Janeece and something for Lani.

My Want Ad

This all goes back to something I wrote yesterday. I wish I were back between the ages of 14-19 when I had a best friend or two to hear me out. I wasn't feeling down because of my lack of friends, it was more that my mom was shutting me out and I needed someone to talk to. Sometimes guys just don't understand or listen.

It got me thinking, I feel like an angsty teen again that doesn't fit in anywhere. When Jose leaves I'm going to be one big loner or become a workaholic. I don't have children so I can't relate to that crowd that has cute stories, cute pictures and only wants to spend time with their babies. I don't have a dog so my co-workers think I have nothing in common with them. I'm married, so even though I'll be on my own for weeks at a time I won't make it in the single scene. I need to find a friend who has been in a relationship for awhile and feels that the relationship is strong enough to not need to be with their partner every waking hour.I won't discriminate so even if it seems we don't have much in common I'm sure we can find something of interest to do. I'd like to learn something new from each person that comes my way.

I'm glad Jose reminded me that I do have some friends- The PRAMS Girls, Ashley Bartholf and Mooch!

Joann's makes me want to sew, crochet, quilt, knit, paint, bake, take photos, and on and on and on.

There are so many cool things there. When I'm working I just want to look around, but never can. I have been gathering ideas of what to make. Most things are for my nieces and nephew and any new babies I know of.

Here's a quick idea list:
Lani-something with soccer fabric because it seems to be all she talks about lately
Jimmy-toothfairy pillow. I found this cool shark fabric
Leah-hmmm something cute
Merly-something for her baby
Stephanie and Marcelo-some cool idea I got for a wedding gift. I can't give it away because she might read this if she gets bored.
Janeece-shoes, clothes, books, blocks

I'm going to need my mom's help because I don't know much about sewing. They offered me free classes at work but I haven't been to any yet.

Soon I will post something amazing that I make.
