One More Night

The week of work is almost over! YES!!!
One more night and then I can stay home and catch up on things.
I had been planning on moving around some things in my sewing room and cleaning out the spare room in the hopes of enlarging my crafting space....this will not be happening..DRAT!!
At 7am while getting things out of cabinets so I would be prepared to cook dinner when I got out of bed today.....what did I find..........ANTS................ICKY!!!
Things have been thrown away and others are in boxes on the kitchen floor. I have hopefully committed mass murder where the little buggers are concerned, but am not even going to open the cabinet and look till tomorrow.
The new plan for tomorrow is to empty all the rest of the kitchen cabinets, scrub them down then refill them.
I have managed to get my DIL's pot holders cut out and started I actually have one of them finished! I wonder how my son is going to feel about pink pot holders?
Enjoy your day.

6AM Time For Bed

I know, I am as backwards as a person can be. Working from 10PM  until 6AM tends to eat up alot of your daytime and nighttime hours. Most days by the time I get home and settled  into bed it is 9 or 10 in the morning. Getting up 7 or 8 hours latter doesn't leave much time for doing things besides drinking coffee, cooking dinner and a short visit with the hubby before it is back to work. 
Can you tell I basically live for my days off!
These are the days I get to enjoy my crafting, in between the house cleaning, laundry, shopping, appointments and whatever else I need to take care of.
The few hours I have to devote to myself on these days I cherish! Weather I am actually sewing, cutting out a project or just sitting in my sewing room looking at the fabric, these are my most relaxing hours of the week.
Hopefully today's project for me to accomplish about blog learning will be to have mrunclefuzzy teach me how to download pictures from the camera to the computer so that I can show you a few more things.
Yesterday I bought some fabrics to start a half hex quilt and I have no idea how to show you what I found!
Time to say goodbye and go toss dinner in my favorite appliance, the Crockpot, curl up with a book and get some sleep.
Till Latter,

The Very First Post

Well it has taken the better part of the morning to figure out how to set up a blog.
 It will probably take weeks or even months before I actually have the whole thing set up the way I would like to and understand how to work all the things that seem to go along with having a blog. It is a lot more complicated than I thought it would be.
In all honesty I am unsure of a number of things at the moment, how often I will post, what I will post about, how to do all the linking, subscribing , posting of pictures and other things that go along with this venture.
I am sure I will post about my hobby's, sewing, quilting, and motorcycle riding to name a few. I am fairly new to the sewing and quilting so there will probably not be much informative information however, I am sure at some point I will start listing links to this type of information.
I am also sure there will be photos and  posts about the motorcycle jaunts my hubby and I take. I tend to mail boxes, and boxes of fabric home from all over the country while we are on these trips.
There will most likely not be many posts about my family at least until they get used to the idea of being blogged about, that may take some time.
Since posting pictures is something I need to attempt, lets give it a try! These will be pictures of the first few quilts that I made.

Not one word about the the messy rooms in the background of the pics please. I never said one of my hobby's was house keeping!
Well that worked!
Till next time....
