We bought the "fence post" at our local home depot. It was perfect for this project because of the angled top. we didnt do a THING to it, other than painting it!

we love football in my house! sundays are for football, junkfood and relaxation. im usually sewing something too while listening to a game. we have 4 people and 4 teams, so it makes it exciting. especially when our teams play each other. for christmas this year, 3 of us got jerseys so now we can all look like true football fans.
i love sundays!

after seeing the CUTE new pattern on modas bakeshop with figgy pudding....i decided to dig through my stash to see what i have.
well, lets just say what i HAVE is ISSUES!!! fabric hoarding issues!!!
1 layer cake.....2 jelly rolls.....4 charm packs.....5 diff yards (1 yard of each)
too much figgy pudding....priceless.
anyone want to come help me sew about 5 holiday projects? after finding all of this fabric, i have a list of projects for me.....1 pillow case, 1 tree skirt, 1 comfy xmas quilt, 1 table runner.
so, if my boss comes looking for me....mums the word.

why do we do this to ourselves. take on extra projects at xmas time for other people AND mentally commit ourselves to making things for our home for the holidays. We KNOW which items will get ditched.....our personal items that we really really wanted to make.
i love making bags for other people. thats not the issue. my issue right now.....time. just never enough of it. sleep is a waste of time to me....if my body didnt require it i would never ever sleep again. right now im getting around 5-6hours because thats how much my body likes.
so what am i doing right now? blogging.....about lack of time. sitting in my comfy chair after a long day at work blogging about time. its kind of funny :)
here sits my list....14 items....i have already crossed off 2. thats still 12....i bet by the morning i could get it down to 5. maybe i should start off with 5....then add a few on as i cross a few off. maybe it wouldnt make me feel so bad about the "lost" items from the list.
