I was at home on a rare off day when I discovered that my favorite show, The Tudors has began season 3 on Showtime on Demand. I was so excited. I got comfortable on my favorite spot on the couch, had a wonderful cup of coffee with hazelnut kahlua and whipped cream, and began crocheting. I think that I would like this to become a wrap , perfect for a cool evening concert.

MY BIRTHDAY WAS AT THE BEGINNING OF THE MONTH AND I REALIZED THAT I HADNT MENTIONED IT ON MY BLOG. I SO ENJOY HOW THE OTHER BLOGGERS INVITE EACHOTHER TO SHARE IN HAPPY MOMENTS OF THEIR LIVES. THIS IS WHY I SO ENJOY BLOGGING. I HAD SUCH A GREAT TIME ON MY BIRTHDAY I CANT BELIEVE I DIDN'T POST IT. WELL HERE IT IS. A NIGHT AT THE BLUE MARTINI AND DINNER AT THE CHEESECAKE FACTORY WITH OUR GOOD FRIENDS. A GREAT TIME.
AFTER CAREFUL RESEARCH, I HAVE DECIDED UPON THIS JANOME SEWING MACHINE. I HAVE READ A LOT OF GREAT REVIEWS AND HEARD NOTHING BUT GOOD THINGS ABOUT THIS COMPANY. I GOT THIS MACHINE SUPER CHEAP AND CANT WAIT TO USE IT. HERE'S TO HAPPY SEWING!
I RAN A FEW ERRANDS TODAY. ONE OF WHICH WAS TO LOOK FOR A SEWING MACHINE. TARGET HAD NICE ONES FOR SALE BUT I OPTED WITH OVERSTOCK.COM. I GOT A GREAT REFURBISHED MACHINE FOR ABOUT $55 (SHIPPING INCLUDED). I THINK I WILL BRANCH OUT FROM THERE. I GOT ALL OF MY STUFF TO COMPLETE OUR WEEKEND TASK, PAINTING THE ENCLOSED PORCH. MY HUSBAND'S GONNA LOVE THAT (LOL).I ALSO FOUND THIS GREAT WICKER BIN FOR $10 AT BIG LOTS. PERFECT FOR MY YARN. I ALSO HAVE TO CLEAN THE PANTRY. YEAH ME LOL! THE BIGGEST JOB IS THE YARD. WE HAVE ABOUT 6 CITRUS TREES(ORANGE, GRAPEFRUIT, LEMON/LIME& TANGERINE THAT ALL BEAR FRUIT. WE ARE SO FORTUNATE TO BE ABLE TO HAVE FRESH CITRUS AT HARVEST. I LOVE THEM BUT THEY TAKE OVER THE WHOLE YARD. I THINK WE'LL HAVE TO HIRE LANDSCAPERS TO CLEAN IT UP AND THEN I'LL FIGURE OUT THE REST. HAPPY WEEKEND!!!!!!!

I have been working soooooooooooo hard (2 jobs). I have had to resolve to make time for crafting. I have even gotten interested in sewing. I had a small inexpensive machine for small jobs like hems and repairs. I am currently looking for a full sized machine and am having a ball searching through all of the great choices. I have become more interested in bigger projects. I got two patterns to start with. One is scrubs for work. I can never have too many scrubs and it seemed like the perfect pattern. I also got a pattern for this cute dress. I have the perfect fabric for it. I will try and see if I can get something going with it in time for the annual Jazz Fest in Clearwater in May. I set aside a small space and I am building a workstation. Right now it is in it's infancy. I have gotten great ideas from different blogs. I eventually want to convert our storage room into a sewing room. That will be a big job which I am not ready for yet but I do need a little space to call my own so this will do for now. I can use my dining room table to cut fabric.
