Happy April Fools Day! Do you have any tricks up those crafty sleeves today?? I've never been good at April Fools day, I've always wanted to play a good trick on someone, but alas, I am not very trixie. Also, it doesn't help that I'm the worlds worst liar. I usually can't keep a straight face long enough to be convincing. Oh well... I TP'd my moms barn in Farmville last night, does that count? That's about the best I could do. But even then, I went straight to my cell phone and texted her, hehehe... not much of a surprise aye?
My stitchy mojo returned last night!! Super-yay! You guys were right, I think I needed a break. I want to thank all of you who commented on yesterdays post. Here I was, feeling all poopy and disappointed in myself about not being able to fill in a few little squares, and along you girls come, and pepped me right back up. Y'all are the best, the very best!! I'm going to answer each of your questions in just a sec, and do some gossiping 'bout DWTS, but first, let's get to the squares!
I'm going to go a little out of order here, stay with me...
Cuz she's cool and she deserves her own square! I'm not the tattoo type, I like them, I just can't commit to any one style that long (not yet anyway *wink*!), so instead of a sailor tattoo on my arm, here's one for my sampler.
Squares 26 & 31~
This one is just for you bloggy girls! A cup of kindness, because no one has been as encouraging and positive as I move into uncharted crafty/sewey territory as you ladies. These two little squares are also my little homage to Mary Engelbreit. She's great. I love her sunny style and bright colors. She's been a favorite of mine for years.
Here's how the three squares fit together...
Sew! Now for the important stuff!!
Bossy Betty~ Yes, her face is weird!! I wonder if her ears touch behind her head yet?? It ain't natural. Lord, please help be to age gracefully and with dignity (and please don't let my boobs hit the floor).
Jill~Ok, cough it up sister! Tell me, is it Flavor of Love?? Your secret's safe with me!
Jane~ I WISH I could stitch in the morning, I'm always so darned rushed because I'm not a morning person... not even a little bit. I'm a night owl through & through...
Joyce~Thank you so much! And yes, I am hoping to include a Lola square, and a Butch and Chyna too, I'm running out of space though, so I need to get really creative.
Giggly~ A stitching chair! How cool! I have one corner of the couch where I camp out. Poor Sean doesn't even try to sit there... I can't wait to see what you've been up to.
Brenda~ I agree, Lola definitely had the right idea, even though I hadn't stitched for a couple of days, I had been really busy, so I guess I needed that break after all. And yes... I did feel a little guilty (how'd you know??) for sitting and watching hours of TV, I never do that. Ever. I'm always doing something else, the TV is on, and I'm listening, but I'm also doing other stuff...
Paulette~ Thank you darlin'! Yes, a resty-pooh! Decompression time, oooohhhhhmmmm........
Dasies~ You're right! Now I have more ideas than I can fit into the sampler, gasp! I might need to do another one!
Suzitee~ Thanks!! I really like that Vespa square as well, it might be my favorite too!
Yes!! I'm overjoyed that so many of you guys watch DWTS! I thought I was alone in this, honestly I don't know one single other person who watches that show. Common perception among my peeps is that it's stodgy & old fashion... not! Besides, there's some hawwwt guys on that show, hello Maks!! I think I can safely say that we're all shocked Buzz is still around, even after only one elimination. Poor guy, at least he's giving it that good old college try! Kate Gosslin...*blink-blink*...stunned silence... man, she's really bad!! Have we ever seen a woman dancer as bad as her?? I've watched every season of this show, I honestly think she's the worst. Her naturally sunny disposition doesn't help either. I've never seen Tony get angry like that, it was uncomfortable. She genuinely seems to think it's her world and her gift to us to watch her treat anyone she encounters like they're something on the bottom of her shoe. When Jon & Kate + 8 first came on TLC, I liked it, I even thought her needling of Jon was a little bit endearing. That wore off fast, he's obviously no saint, but she was mean, they both were I guess. Takes two to tango. It's a shame the way that family crumbled apart in front of the whole country... how will they explain all that nonsense to their kids a few years from now? Yuck. Anyway, back to the sparkles! Who else thinks Pam is a crack up? She was taking that Marilyn shtick to the max the other night! I think she's really funny and knows how to take/make a joke at her self. I hope she sticks around for a while. I think Evan is WAY out in front. He's such a cutie too! Who else do I like, oh Neicy Nash!!! She is AWESOME. I hope she goes a long, long way. She almost cried the other night, it was so sincere! Me likey, likey.
Ok, I think I've talked your ears off long enough, I'm sure you have other blogs to visit, so I'll let you get to it. Thanks again, all of you for being such great cheerleaders! I hope I can return the favor.
Great big squishes!!
