Process Pledge Post

OK, since it has been so long since I've posted about my quilting...I am going to just pick up where I am at...I'm sure eventually all of my WIP's  will make it on here.

This week I have been working on my Nov/Dec Doll Quilt Swap.

I finished the top today. Here it is:
 I have been loving making yo-yo's! I've been using the Clover yo-yo makers and they are great!

I've been making these while sitting at Kyle's baseball games and Cub Scout meetings.

Last month was my first month doing the Doll Quilt (DQ) swap on I really enjoyed making the miniature quilt and sending off to my swap partner. I made a birthday themed DQ for her b/c her bday was in early Nov. The pics I have are really bad but it's all I've got. I did a lot of embellishments on it and it was just adorable!

November so far!

We have had an EXTREMELY eventful month so far! And it's not even mid-month!!!!

We went to the Ponce Inlet Lighthouse Museum Homeschool Day, then to the beach.

Cintas, the new company Ronnie is working for, had their Family Day at the Orlando Science Center.

Nov 6th was mine and Ronnie's 11 year wedding aniversary.

Nov 10th was Kyle's 9th birthday.

Kyle's been busy with Cub Scouts and baseball!

I hope you've enjoyed the update!
I will post a process post of my quilting and sewing soon!!

The Simple Woman's Daybook

I have not blogged in SOOOOOOO long!
That's horrible, isn't it!!? I actually had to go back and look at what I last blogged about to remember all I haven't blogged about! Geesh...the BTS field day. I decided to start with "The Simple Woman's Daybook" post.

FOR TODAY: Tuesday, November 3, 2010

Outside my window...cloudy sky, with the sun peeking through here and there. I am hoping it is going to rain again today.

I am thinking...that I have an opportunity today to minister to several children.
I am thankful pastor

From the learning rooms...ops-normal around here. School is more intense this year than previous years. Kyle's doing great with the larger work load though. Tomorrow we have a field trip to the Ponce Inlet Lighthouse Museum. I LOVE this homeschool day!
From the's been too hot for me to really be in the mood to cook lately...but that will change this weekend!

I am wearing...pj's
I am creating...doll quilts, water bottle totes, aprons and dog scarves

I am reading..."Endless Chain" by Emile Richards. This is the second in a series of novels that have quilting woven throughout them. I am also listening to "1022 Evergreen Place", by Debbie Macomber on a DAD device. This is book 10 in the Cedar Cove Series that I love so much.I hope she comes out with book 11 soon! And...I am listening to the book on CD "Fancy Pants" by Cathy Marie Hake.

I am also doing a new bible study through Uniform Series. I am studying the book of Psalms. I just started this new study yesterday but I did about a week's worth of it and am really liking it so far. I am using my Max Lucado Bible for it. (I had forgotten I had that one until yesterday).
I am hoping...that I don't get too pooped out today, before the craft night tonight.

I am hearing...the fan and Kyle writing and erasing.

Around the house...I have church curriculum coming out my ears. I am in the process of going through it to sort it into the "we'll use this" pile or the "give this away pile". I can't wait to finish organizing it so I can get it on a shelf at the church.

One of my favorite things...the pretty flowers in my pond. Each day it's a surprise how many will be there. Each afternoon the close up and fall into the water until they arise the next morning. For some reason it is quite enthralling to me.

A few plans for the rest of the week...I am going up to help with the after school kids today from 1-5:30/6:00ish. Then we have Kids Craft Hour tonight from 7-8.  Kyle is going to Lisa's today for swimming, hiking and a trip to the local art museum! (For those of you who are local...they took down the comic books and snacks exhibit and have a new one up!). Kyle has a baseball game tonight. Tomorrow is our field trip. Friday night Kyle has practice, Saturday he has a game. Saturday is also me and Ronnie's 11 year wedding anniversary!!!! ...and Sunday is church. Tada! that's our week!

Here is picture thought I am was difficult to choose just one today! Here is one of the flowers I was talking about i the pond.
