The Weekend

How was everyone's weekend? It was rather warm most of the weekend, which means I was uncomfortable and grumpy. Ask the hubs, he'll confirm this. 

On Saturday, I went to the eye doctor for the first time ever (last eye check-up I had was in school in Singapore. Like 20 years ago... Oops.) and found out I sort of need glasses. I don't need to wear them all the time, just when I'm straining them. Which is to say when I'm sewing. Which is a lot of my waking hours. The hubs did all he could to not do cartwheels in the doctor's office because it's been his fervent hope that I will one day have to wear glasses. He likes me in them for some stupid reason. Asshat. 

I'm not bothered by wearing glasses... anything that'll help me keep my eyesight is perfectly fine with me. Plus I'll totally look amazeballs. Hahahaha!! 

And here's the rest of the weekend in photos...

I ordered a hanger for my mini ferris wheel quilt I made out of Hello Luscious (LOVE that line!) and finally picked it up. It now sits pretty above my computer so I have something nice to look at! I want to make a couple more mini quilts to change around and they'll all have to be about 20" across to sit in that hanger nicely hehe

On Saturday I started piecing these hexagon stars together from some scrap ta dots. I think I'm keeping them just like that and make a wallhanging. This was taken Saturday night to figure out a layout. They've since been joined together just like that, and I'll probably applique them onto a background like I did the Hello Luscious mini quilt.

The tomatoes are growing beautifully and the one in the blue pot has had a big growth spurt.

Maybe it has something to do with a gnome watching over it? Gnomes really are magical :) Do you see the many little grape tomato babies behind him??? I'm soooooo excited!

And I bought a small Canon GX1 that will live in my bag so I have a camera with me always. As much as I love my DSLR, carrying it everywhere isn't feasible. The photo above was taken at D'Angelos. The hubs is in love with this place for some reason. Nine times out of ten, he'll suggest going there. I think they're paying him.

The rest of the weekend was spent running errands and the hubs made our lawn look a little more respectable.  I did a bit of shopping for our niece's first birthday pressies... teeny tiny clothes that are too cute and may have included a hot pink tutu. I bought them together with my Dad's Father's Day card so it looked like I was buying baby clothes for him. Har har.

Hope everyone had a lovely weekend too :)

Um, okay, so your mini ferris wheel is incredibly adorable, completely made by those lovely fussy cuts and the awesome hanger. Ditto on your hexie stars. You rock the grey background pretty hardcore.

Also, you would totally rule in glasses. You must get several different frames to change them at your whim.

My weekend was lost to a migraine. I spend most of it in bed wishing for a quick death. The cat, however, had a great weekend snuggled up to a captive human who moved little and kept the bed warm. Seriously, if he could've ordered takeout delivered straight to my bedroom, he would chalk it up as the best weekend ever.

Total cuteness with the minis. Seriously I hardly have time to work on big project and don't get a chance to play. Must rethink that I think, my walls are seriously devoid of adorable things to reflect on. Have a great week Audrie!

It's the gnome for sure :)

Love your ferris wheel hanging!

I had to LOL thinking about your hubs happy that you need glasses - mine is the SAME! I started wearing contacts about a year ago, and even though he loves that I can have different colors of eyes when I choose to, he asks occasionally why I don't wear my glasses. I think it's the ''naughty librarian'' look he wants, LOL.

Love your minis! Where can I get the Ferris Wheel pattern? Love, love it!

To test the theory, put the gnome on the smallest plant and see what happens!! =)
