Whats a girl to do?!

Did you ever feel overwhelmed, like there is just so much to do and so little time to do it?
That is how I feel lately. Hardly enough time to keep up with the daily chores, errands and design work. DH sometimes wishes I would add gardening to my list, GARDEN, what the heck is a garden! Does he mean weeding? I don't like weeding. I love gardens, but you know, I just don't feel I can add gardening to my list. And don't you just wish you could wave your magic wand and POOF, the house would sparkle all around so you could just sit and stitch! Here is a corner of my sewing table, I am embarrassed to show, but LOL, but it is what it is. I spent most of my weekend filling orders, which is always a GOOD thing! In-between I squeezed in a little sewing time. I have 3 projects going on at once, yanking out fabrics left and right, hence the mess. The leftovers just haven't found their way back to their proper drawers yet. Oh Martha my fabric folding girlfriend where are you?
I have the borders sewn on my quilt, next comes the really fun part, adding a little applique fun!

I am also working on a little gifty project for my cupcake swap partner Jana. I don't think she checks out my blog so here is a little hint of the fabric I am using. Cute Japanese kittens (no cupcake theme here LOL). I did already purchase all my cupcake related items, I just wanted to include something sewn from the heart. Can't show and tell all yet but good grief is this ever CUTE! I was up until 1:30 last night stitching away on this. Jon popped his head in the door and said don't you think you better go to bed Mom? I have to admit I am a night owl. I love to sew when the house is quiet, seems like I get a lot accomplished.

We did get out and about yesterday, we had been invited to a picnic. Its always fun being entertained and fed. Speaking of feeding, good grief, its dinner time already. I guess I had better slap something together. Too bad I just couldn't pour us each a bowl of cat food (which we would all love) and then get back to my projects. Well don't worry people, I am going to make a nice salad, grill some pork chops and slice up those red tomatoes, fresh from somebodies garden, not mine. LOL
Have a wonderful week!
