Downtown River Walk

My friend and partner in sewing crime (teehee) came over tonight. We talked & cried (just a smidge) but mostly laughed & sewed at my kitchen table. It was therapeutic. I love having her over once a week to sew. It motivates me to keep working on my sewing goals. I wish more of my crafty friends lived closer so you guys could come over & join us. It's a lot of fun. I really do understand why women from days gone by used to get together to sew & quilt together. I'm accomplishing something while having a fun conversation with a friend. How often do we allow ourselves such a guilty pleasure? I'm being silly here but some days I do crave the conversation of someone over the age of 10. Thank goodness for telephones and dear friends. Oh and quilt nights too ;)

Speaking of good conversation, I now have 4 little ones in the house that officially call me "momma". Yes my sweet little Oblio woke up this morning saying momma! He started saying "dada" a few weeks ago. The girls could hardly stand it. Aris comes up to me all the time saying things like, "Mom, Omri just said azdogoveldoff. Did you hear him?" I'm like, oh yeah that's pretty amazing! Haahaa. Now that he says momma the girls are in heaven. Sloan is in the process of teaching him how to say "sissy". He'll be talking our ears off soon.

I have a confession to make.....I didn't get to send in my sketchbook for the Sketchbook Project. It made me very sad but I couldn't send it half finished. It was a hard lesson for me to learn. I really need to work on follow through when it comes to projects & starting things on time instead of waiting until the last minute. Such a bummer but, it won't go to waste. I'm sending it to a very dear friend as a belated birthday gift. I promise to post pictures when it's officially finished. In the mean time I have a couple projects on the table right now. First:: finish up the last two cards for Simply Sweet Marriage. Second:: work on some sketches for a commissioned art piece a dear friend asked me to make for their baby to be. I feel so honored to work on this project. I can't wait to share the process with you. Even though I haven't posted any finishes in a while, I am working every night on something creative. It is the best feeling ever.

I hope you all are enjoying your week as much as we are. It's flying by & I'm okay with that. Thanks for all your sweet comments on my blog. They really do make my day. If you come by often but haven't commented yet, please say hello. I love to meet new people & I'd like to get to know my readers a little better. It allows me the opportunity to drop by your blog & say hello too. Hope you all have a happy day.
