End of another Week

What a week, I started out feeling retched and it didn't get a lot better after that. I stayed home on Mon. and then I thought I could work in the sewing room. Needless to say that didn't go well so I went back to bed. I did however finally get some work done towards the end of the week. I got up with a migraine on Wed. morning and just went to work anyway. I am so glad I did, I loved the lady who came to my class. She was a real sweetheart and we had a good time. She didn't finish her project but she was very happy to be in the class, so it didn't matter. I did come home and put a pillow over my eyes and take a nap. It helped but didn't get rid of the pain. I went to the sewing room and worked the rest of the afternoon. When my Aften got home from work we had a quick supper and then left for the Cotton Cupboard to the party to celebrate the new Nolting Quilt machine that came in this week. Wow what an incredible machine, it really makes me want one. I didn't want to, since I work there, but the owner told me to, so I played with it. I am in love, and excited about completing some of the quilt tops I have ready for quilting.
I have spent the last two days working in the sewing room and I am pretty excited about the stuff I have made, for the next few months of Baby classes. I have the burp rag for the shoulder, the diaper stacker, and the bottle bag. I have the diaper bag started but not complete yet, and I am designing a changing pad to use too. When Aften came in from work today she saw the diaper stacker without the square bottom and said, "Oh, that looks like a garment bag, when you make mine will you make it look like a "____________"insert famous designers name. " I had not thought about that, but I love it so I will go for it and make one. I have other things in my head that need to be made. I just wish I could make them all, and maybe I will eventually.
Now for the other stuff I need to get done. Gonna work all weekend and talk to you all soon.

Feeling Guilty

Oh, my I have not been here for a long time and I need to be doing something else now. I have been sick all day and I am finally feeling better so I should go sew, but I decided that I might make mistakes so I will work tomorrow.
I am planning some baby stuff for the Cotton Cupboard so I will have five months of classes ready to show. I will need to also write up the directions as well. Then I have to get the same five months of home design or fashion for the shop. I am working on the sweatshirt that will be a lovely jacket in black and white.
Needless to say I am busy, but to add to that my son-in-law is in San Antonio for a school and that means he is only about two hours from us instead of all the way across the country. He came for the holiday weekend and we had a big party for him on Fri. night and then on Sat. my son and the daughter that does not live here came home to meet him You see this was the first time for most of the family to meet him. I put my baby up for adoption when I was 16 and in 2005 she found me and I have been to see her a couple of times the first one was in Germany, but they have been stationed in Virginia now for about two years. Aften my middle daughter went up there to meet her sister last year, so she has met the whole family like I have. None of the other family members have met them though.So he was a little nervous and I was so excited I could bust. He had a good time and everyone loved him. It did keep me from the sewing room though.
Well, I will post photos when I get the baby stuff done. I am still wondering what all I will do for the home decoration stuff.
