Friday the 13th...

I am not a superstitious person, but my Friday the 13th is off to a crazy start! I couldn't sleep last night (due to pregnancy and an oncoming cold and sore throat), woke up grumpy, Cameron came in early this morning first to tell me that he had a stuffy nose and second to inform me that he burst Erik's sticky, gooey ball (filled with who knows what) that he got at a birthday party and it was all over him and Erik's bed. So I dragged myself out of bed, bathed Cameron, threw Erik's sheets in the wash, packed lunches, fed Austin breakfast, cleaned up the kitchen, sent the boys off to school, and ate a cookie (never a good sign when you're eating cookies before 9:00am). Next, I picked up the toys left lying around from the night before and was about to start my daily chores, when I decided that I needed some "crafty" down time. So.... I took all my spring fabric squares (that I cut out yesterday for my runner) and I layed them out the way I wanted them (with a little help from my assitant, Austin) and now I am ready to sew! But now it will have to wait until I finish my chores! But at least it's a start and a good little break from my hectic morning.

Sneak Peek: Here is all my fabric layed out, ready to sew.
**all fabric is from my "stash". I think I can create the entire runner with what I have on hand aside from the ric rac!

Unfortunately your Friday the 13th only got worse as the day went on. Glad to hear that things are working out and you are able to deal with things better. That's great news!

Your runner will look fantastic, can't wait to see the finished project! With the help of your little assistant I'm sure you will get it done! He looks like quite the little task master!! (HA!HA!)
