I have the house all to myself this weekend-- a rarity to be sure! Just me and the cats. It's weird! The hub went on an ice fishing weekend with the guys, Linds went out of town with her cousin, and Joe is spending the weekend with a friend. I made a big batch of homemade turkey & wild rice soup for the guys to take ice fishing--and saved a few bowls of it for myself, so I haven't even had to cook! Yeah! I really love my family and feel totally blessed to be a part of this happy and vibrant family---but thank you Lord for a little peace and quiet once in a while! LOL
I got a request for a custom order of the little felt birds that I make. This gal wants a bunch of them so she can make them into a mobile for her child's room--which is a wonderful idea, don't you think! Well, because I have so much uninterupted time on my hands this weekend, I was able to get all those little guys you see in the picture cut out, sewn up, and finished! Yeah! I think they turned out pretty sweet. I originally told her that I would just put some fabric combos together for her to choose from, but now she can actually choose from completed birds instead. Yeah!
Well, I think I'm gonna go and make some popcorn and cocoa and watch a movie! Bye for now. :-D
