What I have been up to....

Watching - The new Iron Fist series on's pretty good. And House on Netflix, it disappears tonight at Midnight, and I have just a few episodes left, so we'll see if i make it or not.

Craving - Chocolate Mint Ice Cream -- I rejoined Weight Watchers, so no more ice cream for me....

Doing - working. we're crazy at the office, and my teaching schedule is crazy as well, so lots of working going on around here.

Obsessing - over recipes. I got a new slow cooker book, and we are going to work through it recipe by recipe. First up....Halibut with Pineapple and Mango Chutney.

Loving - aqua aerobics....I've been every day this week and it is really comical and fun at the same time.

Reading - contracts and more contracts....

Wanting - Chocolate Mint Ice Cream, oh yeah, I said that already.

Pinning - house plans??? Not sure why but pinning house plans has been my latest obsession.

Dreaming - about sleeping in. I've been working nights for 2 weeks now, and I haven't adjusted, so I am still waking up at 5:30am....

Writing - not much.

Crafting - not much.

Sewing - bindings, lots of bindings.

Knitting - not a stitch.

Listening - to some new podcasts.

Wearing - pajamas at the moment. I really have to get a plan together to update the wardrobe, it needs serious help!

Needing - a few days of fun in the sun.....

Planning - a cooking vacation with my stepmom....

Trying - to resist getting a new puppy -- Penny really needs a friend, and I really want a second doodle, but goodness, puppies are such a commitment.

What have you been doing this week???

Make a List Wednesday?

It's been a busy week, and I have been working crazy hours, including being home in hours that require "quiet working" because everyone else is sleeping. So, I've been working on bindings quite a bit....the plan was.....

1. Bind Two plus Two - done see below.

2. Pick Fabrics for Harbored Lighthouse - done. I chose this version in the end....

3. Cut out patterns for Harbored Lighthouse - done. All ready to go.

4. Bind Strip Quilt - done, though I didn't get a picture before I sent it to its new home.

5. Borders on Crossroads - done and quilted (thanks Judy!). See Below.

My crossroads quilt....

An old WIP....Two Plus Two

And Monkey Business....

That's about all I've gotten done lately....This next week doesn't look all that different, crazy work schedule and teaching all weekend in Thousand Oaks, so I don't know that I will get much done in the next week....but here's the plan...

1. Get Harbored Lighthouse cut out and bagged.

2. Bind Monkey Business and Crossroads

3. Create detailed schedule for Wedding Ring Quilt Along that starts on Saturday.....

So, that's the plan, and we'll catch up next week to see how it goes!

What are you working on this week???

Make a List Monday

Well, it's a new week, and I can't believe it has been 2 weeks since I last posted. Crazy!

Work is crazy, and I am on nights this week and next, so I'm trying to use the extra hours to get organized. It's Monday, and I have already done two loads of laundry, trimmed a quilt, made a binding, and sorted out dinners for the week. So far, so good!!!!

On a serious note, this working nights thing is a little odd, I'm in the house at noon, writing a blog post on a Monday, which feels completely backwards.

Penny is asleep at my feet, the crockpot is full of pulled pork ready for dinner tonight, and I am writing a blog post.

It's a busy week.....crazy at work, and a lot of deadlines for myself.

Here's the plan for the week....

1. Bind Two plus Two

2. Pick Fabrics for Harbored Lighthouse

3. Cut out patterns for Harbored Lighthouse

4. Bind Strip Quilt

5. Borders on Crossroads

I am off all weekend next weekends, so I am really looking forward to/planning to do a lot of sewing/quilting this weekend....I haven't decided what I am going to work on, so we'll see what happens.....and what surprises I have by then....
