Weekend wrap up

Wow, what a weekend!  We had Mariah's birthday party.  7 adults, 4 kids, lots of ice cream & 3 dozen cupcakes.  This was what was left of the cupcakes

She was thrilled that she got 2 basketballs - 1 is glow in the dark!  She has recently discovered basketball and loves playing.  I guess I'll have to start taking her up to the basketball hoops to practice.  She also got a beautiful blanket for her doll, and LOTS of art supplies.  She also got a GC for Michael's which she is dying to go spend.  She wants to buy a new set of good paint brushes and then spend the rest of it on tubes of paint. 

Sunday, we went to church.  They had a wrap up of VBS for service.  It was great seeing what the kids had done.  There was a video compilation of the week with the kids' activities and Mariah was in it several times!  After service, there was a potluck with TONS of food.  We went home afterwards and relaxed in the afternoon.  Mariah & I splurged & treated Rich to Subway and even got him a chocolate chip cookie. 

I worked on the 2nd angel in Petite Christmas Angels over the weekend.  I couldn't find a progress picture from the last time I worked on her, but I finished up her hair & got most of the wings done. 

Today starts my new rotation.  During the day I'll be working on Fright Night Friends Monday - Wednesday, sewing projects on Thursday & Friday, and Petite Christmas Angels on Saturday & Sunday.  Evenings I'll be working on my crocheted bikini beach bag.  I'm hoping to have it finished by next weekend, along with several sewing projects. 
Until then, what are YOU working on?


  1. Glad Mariah had a great birthday and she can play basketball day or night!

    Those Angels are very pretty and I look forward to seeing yours stitched up.

  2. Happy to hear Mariah' Birthday party as a success. Can't wait to see your angels finished. I startd on Fright Night Friends. I will be working on it today and tomorrow, but Wednesday I have work, so won't get much if any done that day. Ruthie
