FNSI results

does moving around fabric count? im embarrassed to say thats ALL i got done. i shifted, reorganized, put away, took out, and fondled fabric......but i also surfed half the night for ideas. so i guess that could mean for something. LOL

i cant wait to see what you all did. ill start my surfing of the blogs later. now its time to curl up on the couch with a chickflick. dont forget tomorrow will be the giveaway. so keep an eye on mine and Heidi's blogs for the lucky winners.

Pin Cushion Pass

I FINALLY got my pin cushion mailed to my partner L ! i hope she likes it!!! I hand stitched the item on the right (what are those called??). its a bit big, but i thought it would be perfect on the ironing board. eh???

this was REALLY hard not to keep for myself....i loved it that much!
i found the inspiration somewhere online, but cant find where to link to it. (sorry!!!)

i was giving myself a break from "swaps" ....... but now im getting the itch again. LOL
see you tomorrow night!

GUESS WHOS BACK...back again....

i think thats an eminem song......
welcome back grandpa favre. what a way to go out in style if he could bring home a superbowl ring for his last season....and as a VIKING!

so tonight i celebrated the coming of football by making some comfort food. all these years with kids and ive always made mac n cheese out of a box. pathetic i know.
i got this easy recipe from my mom and we grubbed on this tonight.......

and chili dogs....OH MY!

Mac n Cheese

4 cups uncooked pasta
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup flour
4 cups milk
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp dry mustard
1/4 tsp worcestershire
dash nutmeg

2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
1 cup velveeta

Cook pasta as directed.
Melt butter and flour together. add milk slowly. (stir stir stir) add everything else but the cheeses. bring to a boil for 1-2mn. will thicken. add both cheeses and stir until it melts. add cooked pasta, mix well. pour into a greased pan. bake in oven uncovered 350 for 20-25mn.

that REALLY cant get much easier!!!
I cant wait for fall to get here so i can sew, eat bad food and watch football!

this was a pic from my tweens 5th grade graduation. his school puts on a big spread for them and did great things ALL year long! field trips, plays, dances, graduations. Its hard to imagine my baby is going to jr high...or middle school as they call it now. (makes me feel old)

my teen is going to be a there goes another busy school year!!!

im hoping once we get back into school and routines ill have more blogging/sewing time.
