Weekend update

The weekends seem to fly by so quickly.  This photo pretty much sums up what I'm feeling tonight.  Lol

I did survive the rest of the week after my little pie-hole incident.  Sorry Michelle, its not a story I dare blog about.  (but email me and I'll tell you :)  The neighborhood has temporarily calmed down.  And the piles of garbage were picked up on Friday so things are slowly settling down.

Saturday I went to a large indoor yard sale in support of the local Relay for Life teams.  The place was packed and it was nice to see so many people out in support of such a great cause.  Just another example of how our small town turns out to support each other.   And I came home with lots of goodies like homemade fudge and donuts. 

Next stop Saturday was a visit to Flow Lifestyle Boutique for an Eco-Fashion Show.  It was a combination of new clothes and vintage, pre-loved clothing.  But I wasn't there long when I started to feel bad.  It was a migraine starting and by 4pm I was miserable.   Thankfully I woke up this morning feeling much better.

It has been at least a week, if not two, since I picked up my hook.  Today I got back to the frame and managed to get a few little lavender sachets hooked.  I will get them assembled and delivered later this week.

They will look much better when they are sewn and stuffed.  I'll take another picture when they are finished.  These are fun to hook, but I drag my feet on the assembly.    I had another etsy sale today. Yay!  The summer fields rug will be headed to its new home this week. 

This post is getting a little random.  Sorry.  I just wanted you all to know I am still here and haven't been run out of the neighborhood. 

Have a great week.

  4. Wow you sold another rug!! That is so awesome.Good for you.
    I really hope it is a better week, something that good will happen. :) I love looking at your little rugs. They are so sweet.
    Hang in there.

  5. Hi Kim! Just dropped by to say HI! Glad you neighborhood stuff is settling down. Sorry it is Monday tomorrow :)

  6. The pie hole incident...hmmmm! That mystery might make for a good Monday morning giggle!
    Our little town has a great Relay for Life event each year too With all the money made by each little town each year, wouldn't you they'd find a cure? Glad you came home with donuts and fudge...yummo!
    Your rugs look so cute what a lot of work yet how rewarding when you an sell on ESTY. Good going. Happy Monday!

  7. Fudge and donuts are always nice and I like the rugs : ) Thanks for stopping by my blog...enjoy the rest of your week!

  8. Glad your headache is better!
    Weekends are just not long enough! At least you had time to do a few enjoyable things before going back to the grind today.

  9. Yeah, that neighborhood stuff can get kind of tricky. I'd have been steamed, too. Glad things are working out! Like the idea of hooking sachet bags...looking forward to seeing them finished.

  10. Glad the headache let up. Congratulations on your sales. Smart girl!!!
    Why care what the neighbors think? Forget them and get on with it!

  11. Sachet bags, what a wonderful idea. Congratulations on another sale! Migraines are the pits, hope it lets up soon. Hugs, Julie.

  12. Hi there neighbor, I'm still talking to you even though I'm a day late, hehe. I did read several blogs yesterday but life got in the way and I didn't leave too many comments.

    Sorry about the migraine and I'm glad that it went away.
    Woo hooo, another item sold on etsy. Way to girl. Congratulations.

    I was steamed up too last week when that moron lit a fire in my neighborhood although we had a fire ban because things were so dry, and I'd do it again if there's a repeat. No pulling back for this old chick....

    Have a great week.
    Hugs. JB

  13. I used to experience migraines years ago so I really feel for you. Congrats on your sale. Your work is beautiful. I think things will be back to normal for you.

  14. I'm glad your migraine is better - they're the worst! I used to get them a lot when I was younger. Now its only an occasional one, thankfully.

  15. Another post I missed....yikes....I think I'm having a Kim day - just got back from the ER...AGAIN....(Little Crow again....) I think it's not so good when the ER staff remembers your name. Love your little sachets....yeah, the finishing of things is when I sorta drag my feet as well. Just so you know - I'm still snickering about your piehole incident.... ;o) Smiles & Hugs ~ Robin
