footloose and friday night

Yesterday was one of those days at work where you cant concentrate at all.....it was solely because i couldn't wait to get home and sew.  Its hard for me during the week to do any projects.  my brain normally wont let me.  But i must admit lately my brain has not been on my work at all....and i think my job is noticing.  LOL

I came home with a giddy up in my hitch all ready to make a mess and get down to business.  So picture this...my night started off with a good laugh.

i get the family settled.....
i trot (seriously) into my sewing room.....
i turn on my radio.....(chicky kind of music ya know)
set up the ironing board.....
pull out my fabrics......
start to dance across the room because i am SOOO excited.....

as i do a quick swivel to the music from the movie footloose....i STOP in my tracks because the hubby is standing in my doorway watching me.   HILARIOUS!!!

Later in the night, he even came and sat on my floor because he wanted to "hang out with me".  (he got booted off the PS3 by a kid) but hey, it made me feel good that he seemed to care about what i was making.

so what did i make you ask?
well, i cant show you!!!  like i said HERE, I am making some baby gifts for my friend Jamie at modified mix.  I dont want to spoil her surprise.  but ill give you a peak in a few. 

First i did finish the binding on the mugrug for your giveaway tomorrow.  I went to hobby lobby today and found this C U T E mug to go with it.  Im in a spring mood....so its cupcakes in springy colors.  I still have another surprise for the giveaway.  Make sure you check back tomorrow for the winner and what i am giving.



Here is a peak at something im making for Jamie and Baby M. 
thats all ya get, but trust me....i sewed last night and had fun doing it :)


Last year, i thought i was starting to lose my umfph for FNSI.  but its definitely back.  thanks to all of you and your encouraging words.  It seems Heidi and I have inspired quite a lot of you.....all over the world.  we THANK YOU all for your continual praise on our hosting this fun event once a month.
