Weekend Update

Happy Monday!

...wait...are Monday's ever happy...

Anyways, how was your weekend? I had a lot of things to catch up on as far as house work is concerned.  Grocery shopping, cleaning, reading, crafting, sleeping, movie watching, etc.  Oh the joys of attempting to be a grown up!

As you could see by my previous post, that my crafting weekend didn't really happen as planned.  I didn't get to work on my challenge submission but I did get a little done on Mr Dino.  He now officially has spikes! This process is definitely getting easier for me, it didn't take me long to knock these out!

Here are a few things I have learned a few things a long the way:

1. This is not a fast process. Taking time to mark where stitches go is WORTH IT.
3. Check your bobbin regularly, or you may end up stitching an entire "quilt block" just to turn around a redo it.

A few other things to add to my accomplishments this weekend:

I made THIS recipe but substituted blue berries for cranberries.  We love it and I love having easy access to breakfast.  Grab-n-go is key!

I finished reading Unspoken Bond.  Don't miss my review coming soon.  Also, follow me on Good Reads if you want to keep up with my reading!

Finally I got to spend time with my handsome nephew, who also happens to be a 2/12 year old future baseball star.  Just saying :)

Hope everyone had a great weekend and if you are in to sewing, make sure you stop by Kimbo's blog...it's her blog's 4th birthday and she is giving away some fabric!!

    1. Your mom was there when it was cooking...she laughed when I told her I was making breakfast bars. "Ha, look at you, I just go buy mine from the store!!". She did like that it made the house smell like cinnamon rolls!

  2. yay, Dino spikes! The oatmeal bars sound tastier than my Oatmeal To Go ones :P
