Been Busy Crafting!

I am so awful about posting. I really haven't been up to anything new except making crafts and building my fabric stash. I really have a fabric addiction. I need to swap. I joined a couple of summer swaps. I love the Patroitic theme. My favorite besides Christmas. Sewing takes my mind of things. It really helps me to relax.
Chase Bank is starting their mess again with the mortgage. I really wish we could refinance and get away from them. But they have ruined our credit. Twice a year, they start sending payments back for no reason and start adding late fees! They are the biggest crooks around. Never ever do business with them. They have made our lives miserable.
The kids are good. My two youngest have been busy with ball. They are on the worst teams EVER! I will be glad when this season is over. It is supposed to be fun, but it is so frustrating. I can't believe school is almost out. I will be a sewing fool to keep my sanity! lol

Loving Annies!

I love making raggedy anns. I joined an Annie Swap at Aunt Pitty Pat's. I love the Annie that I got. Below is a picture of the one I received from Rhonda. She also sent some sewing goodies.

Below is the one I sent her. She was so much fun to make!
Below is one I made for a circus swap. I love how she turned out.

Now I am off to make some more!

Rainy Wednesday

It has been raining off and on since Saturday evening. I am so tired of the rain. It does not motivate me to do anything. Hubby is starting the retirement process from the Navy so he is always home. I don't know where the day goes. I can't seem to get anything done. So now I have him, my oldest daughter, and her baby home everyday. I love them, but geesh. I just want to be alone sometimes. I get tired of the racket! I got some wonderful swaps in the mail the past few days. I need to upload some pictures. I love getting goodies in the mail. It has put me back in the crafting mood. I really need a new sewing machine. I saw one at Walmart that was $130 and it looks just like what I am looking for. But the power bills have been outrageous so I have to wait on that. Maybe someday I will have a sewing machine I am not yelling at. lol
