WOYWW #255

Another week,
another WOYWW

If you don't know what this is and just have to find out more, play along with us and travel the world in just a few clicks. 

I know I have been missing again for a week but in my house right now there never seems to be a dull moment.

Today for example, things were going not so well as the rest of my week. I woke up this morning with one of the worst migraines I have had in quite some time. So my day was spent in bed. Boy that sounds fun huh?

So that lead me to miss my church life group (AGAIN), which I really do not like to do. As the evening was just beginning, I had received a call that one of my daughters baby bunnies had passed away while she was at school. We didn't even know that she was pregnant a couple weeks ago until she had the babies. Out of the 4 babies, 2 are doing well and one is probably not going to make it through the night. Trying to mend a teenagers heart that cares so much for creatures big and to her preferably small, is a very hard thing to do. It didn't help that I still have a migraine. 

Okay enough of that. I hope everyone had a WONDERFUL and blessed Easter. Around here the weather was perfect and the company was great. I have to say this is one of the best dinners I've had with my family. Not because of the food, but because I had the chance to sit and talk with my dad. 

Growing up my dad was not a religious person by any means, but within the past year and a half, I have seen the most amazing changes in him. He has been baptised, attends church, and is in 2 life groups.  This Easter I sat and talked with my dad the entire time about different scriptures and how God is using him. It was a wonderful time spent with my family.

So this week in the world of crafting for The Determined Scrapper. (sorry it took so long to get to the point) I have all 240 blocks cut for my first quilt. I have about 80 more to finish squaring up and then I can begin to assemble. Now looking at things and seeing how long it has taken me to complete this step, I don't believe I will be able complete this before May 11th but I can always try.

I'm still working on getting all my stamps and other supplies listed in my EverNote database. When I was busy with invitations I had gotten a little behind and now I have a pretty big bin on my desk that still needs to be entered. I also have been working on getting together a tutorial on how I use EverNote to organize and document my crafting supplies.

Wow, a lot of words and only one picture. I promise next week I will not be as boring. A crazy life makes for a boring blog sometimes.

Have a blessed week and I hope to see you soon.

WOYWW #253

At this time during the week, I try to join others around the world for a quick look at each others work spaces. This week on WOYWW, I have two desk to show. If you're interested in knowing what all of this hubbub is about, make sure to swing by Julia's and she will give you a quick view.

Don't you just wish sometimes that there were more hours in the day?.?. Not to do things we don't enjoy, but to do things we DO enjoy. I've noticed since I've started quilting that I am enjoying myself much more. 

For the most part I am a self taught quilter and I am being told that my first project is too big for a First timer. Well my theory is Go Big or Go Home!

I have not taken any classes in person, I have not been taught from a family member, and I haven't joined any groups. (yet) All I have done is watched some YouTube and researched it on the Internet and well.... hopefully I am getting it all figured out.

As for, WOYWW, my sewing area has the makings of my first quilt. I am piecing the top of it and I'm about half way through cutting the pieces for it. 

Only 200 more pieces to go and then I can sew them all back together again.

And for my craft room desk, well that's another story. It was in shambles since I finished the invitations. So yesterday I worked on cleaning it up a little so I could at least see the top of it. The stuff that is on top is all things that I have to get into my supply inventory that I keep updated in Evernote. If you haven't checked out this program, I suggest giving it a try. I will have to do a post about it some time to show you how I have all of my supplies organized. 

Well for tonight my friends this is a look into my world. Time for me to go for a trip around the world and hope to see you before next weeks WOYWW.
