Where did the week go????

Seems like I turn around, and it's Friday. It didn't help that I had Monday off, Jessie had an orthodontist appt. on Tuesday (which she doesn't need braces yet), then there was girl scouts and tutoring Tuesday night, Jessie had a doctor's appt on Thursday, tutoring Thursday night, we had calling hours to go to Thursday night for a good friend's Grandma who passed away, and then last night I had to go get the stuff for Todd to make steer feed. UGH.


I did find buttons for Jessie's flower power pillow:




This afternoon I have to get some sewing done. One of the guys on the fire department had a baby Thursday morning (well, his wife did - you know what I mean:)) and Todd asked me last night if I had a baby quilt made that we could give them as a present. So I have to get one done in time for Todd to take it to fire practice Tuesday night. Nothing like waiting until the last minute to tell me, right??

But first, I need to do some cleaning, some laundry and some blog reading. I am soooooo far behind on everything!
Have a great Saturday!

The pink pillows with the buttons are so cute. Perfect for a girl or spring/summer.

You did have a busy week! Hopefully this weekend you can rest in taking some good sewing time.

The buttons are funky fab for Jessie's pillow. Cool!

And a baby quilt for Tuesday? If anyone can do it, it's you! Post, please, so we can see what you put together?

Sunny days!

I too know what you mean by where did the week go. I keep thinking too, where did the month go? I like those buttons on the pillow. They just set those flowers off. Have a great weekend friend.

Sounds like you had a busy week. I usually look forward to a busy week because they don't happen very often around here. It can also be overwhelming at times also.

I love the buttons and the cute pillow you are making. I love the color you chose. Very cute!!
