Blankets…

I promised my niece I’d update as often as possible. So here I am, on the train headed home and I decided to update.

I Love these throw blanket kits from Joann’s.

Not only are they super easy to make, I don’t have to worry about coordinating fabric and they so warm. You’re supposed to cute 1 inch strips all the way around and tie the strips and your blanket is done. It’s usually what I do when I make them for other people. But for these 2 I decided to sew them. I like mine sewn better than tied.

This was my last project of 2018. For my nephew Kieran.

This one I made for myself.

Uh oh my train arrived at my destination, I better hurry off before conductor closed the doors and I get stuck on there until the next stop.

Feliz Año Nuevo…

I think I was in bed by midnight. No suit case packed, no grapes, no money, and none of the other superstitious stuff. I was almost falling asleep when I heard my sister yell out Happy New Year!!! She quickly said good night after that.

I don’t have any resolutions. Do we have to have them? If we have them, do we have to talk about it? I’m not one of those people who has to talk about stuff like that. Kind of like when people give stuff up for lent. They spent 40 days saying over and over how they can’t have certain things because they have it up for lent. WHY?!?!?! Give it up and shut up about it LOL.

I’ve never been a fan of resolutions. BUT I am a firm believer in what you do on the first of the year, you will continue to do the rest of the year. I usually have a list of things I do. This year was way different. It was such a lazy day lol. So I hope I don’t spend the entire year being lazy. For the first time in years I watched the Rose Parade. I watched Christmas movies. I made some paper flowers, something I do hope to do all year long. It’s only 8:30 and I already forgot what else I did today LOL.

I hope you have an awesome 2019.

Hi Danigirl <3 tia Loves you.

Happy Monday…

Wow this time change really did a number on me. On all of us I’m sure. I do appreciate the extra hour sleep, even if we can only tell for the first few days that we are getting an extra hour. What I don’t like is how dark it’s going to be while I wait for the train to head home.

Having some coffee while I wait for the train to go to work and I remembered that my niece Dani mentioned how I haven’t updated my blog in a long time. I hate that excuse that life happens lol. There is always time for updates I just need to figure out what I want to talk about. When I started this thing in 2007, I just wanted it to document my sewing journey, my progress. I wanted to keep track of how far I’d come. I did a pretty good job of posting. A few years later I was hacked and lost everything. I was so bummed that somebody would actually take the time to hack this or any site and completely remove my hard work and my friends hard work. Who at the time was hosting this site and designing it for me. For a long time I didn’t want anything to do with it and in a way I feel like along with deleting my posts they took some of my sewing passion. I don’t sew as much as I did before. I craft all the time. But don’t sew as much as I want to.

If you’re still reading this Danigirl, Tia loves you.

I’ve been slowly trying to get back into sewing. Making things here and there. I need to get it together and just focus. Sit at my machine and fall in love with it all over again. I might just give it a go tonight while I’m watching wrestling. Yes this grown woman watches wrestling. Since I was 3 lol. Dani asked me about scrunches and I think I’ll make her some tonight.

Belle & Dani, have a great day at school. Congrats on the good grades. Continue to make good choices, and when you’re not sure. Always always always ask yourself: WHAT WOULD MIKE TROUT DO?!?!?! Tia loves you.

Grateful day 6…

I hope your weekend was as uneventful as mine. Who wants to do anything in this California heat.

Always grateful for Monday’s. It’s like you’re being handed a new beginning!

But most important I am grateful for…

1. Tyson. He was just a baby here. Around 6 months I think.

2. Frank’s Red hot sauce LOL

3. A simple lunch.

Happy Monday.

Have a great week.

Grateful…

I heard on morning radio the other day something about being grateful. I didn’t quite catch the whole story because I had to shut the radio off. I guess the whole point was to write down 3 things you’re grateful for everyday. Again, I didn’t catch the whole segment. But if you do it daily for 21 days, your mind will get in the habit of being grateful all the time. I’m grateful everyday for everything but I thought this would be something good to document here. And how perfect is it to start in the 1st of the month. Here are my 3 things/people I’m grateful for.

1. Tyson!

2. The Sister

3. The Mom

Happy August.

If you’re reading this, what 3 things/people are you grateful for?

Happy Friday…

It’s been a long week. Between the weather, work and an Angels 10 day home stand. I am a little tired. So as I sit here on the train headed to work. I hope today goes by fast.

I can’t believe it’s my 5th post this week. I don’t know why I haven’t been posting as much as I have wanted to. I’m not one to complain about not having time. I can easily post on the train when I’m going to work or going home. I might just try to take advantage of that. Like I said in a post earlier this week, I want to do a do’s and don’ts about riding the train. Metro Monday? LOL.

Did I mention I’m tired? Ha!

Not tired enough to go see this guy play tonight.

Bottom left picture, YES Mike Trout was waving at ME!!! I thought he was waving at a somebody behind me, so I turned around and there was nobody there. Like a true fan girl I wanted to flip out and yell I LOVE YOU MIKE TROUT. But I didn’t. I kept taking pictures and he kept waving!

I could talk baseball for days, but my train is almost at my destination and I better get ready to get off. These passengers are vultures when they are trying to catch their shuttles so I need to pay attention. ROFL

Happy Friday. Have a good weekend.
