I'm supposed to be typing up my tote instructions - I actually think there are quite a few ladies coming (maybe 8-10!!). I hope I can explain everything good!
Swimming lessons are every day except Fridays now. Today (and Wed.) was the 6 year old and tomorrow (and Thurs.) are the older two. They all had fun today playing afterwards since a few of our friends' kids are also taking lessons.
It's good for my kids (and me too) to get out of the house and play. But that also means sewing is going to be a little slower.
The party was fun - the kids all had a blast. We even came home with two less kids - the two eldest spent the night at the "party" house.
This guy finally got to go back in the water - he was so excited!
Whipped cream faces....
And lots of pool....
Our eldest has decided he's too cool for pictures but I caught him...
These fun things came in the mail today - yep that swap group is deadly for your wallet!
(A fun charm pack)
The one on top is a swap but the other two were Etsy buys - I love Anna Maria Horner's dots from Chocolate Lollipop - figured I'd better get some while they are still available (and cheap) - and how had I never bought any of that plaid?? It's too cute!
Like I need to add any more projects to the ever-growing pile of things in-progress!
But I did anyway. Just couldn't help myself.
All that Heather Ross/Munki Munki sitting on the shelves.....looking so cute!
So I've started in on my "super fun" quilt (that's the name so far). Log cabin blocks of various sizes that I will eventually sew together with white sashing.
I'll probably add a few every now and then - which reminds me I'm far behind on the nine patch blocks!!
We are doing testing this week so not sure how much sewing I can get in - and my (almost 7) 6 year old has a double ear infection I think (too much pool time maybe) so we are off to the doctor later today.
I hope it's nothing too bad - they are supposed to start swimming lessons next week (free - at our local pool so no big deal if he can't do it).
Oh - and Melly is having a giveaway on her blog - a copy of her new book (and a new pattern)! Go check it out!
I almost spaced out on the rug winner - sorry guys! But I went to the trusty random number generator thingy (the kidsaren't into it anymore) and the winner is:
Here are your random numbers:

Shannon! Congrats - email me your info and I'll pass it along to CSNrugs!
I'm almost swapped out - it's a little tiring and way too much time spent in front of the computer. But man, when the mail comes, it sure is fun!
These little kittens weren't part of a swap - found some flannel pjs on sale (online) and they are so cute in person. I had to start on a quilt with them immediately!
I'm thinking maybe 6-9 blocks - and very girly.
Those little kitties are just too cute - and I'm not even a big cat fan.
And - my blog birthday is coming up next month and I think a little pack of munki munki fabrics sounds like a fun giveaway - gotta share the love since I've been taunting you all with the cuteness these past few weeks. Stay tuned for that!
