My husbands sole and only duty this AM was to get me coffee grounds. No, I am not cool and dont have a grinder yet. So, this AM I wake up, see my fresh bag of starbucks coffee grounds (I know I need to try Uber Geek Coffee, just need a grinder first) pry it open, which takes some work mind you when you are a zombie. I open it up, get ready to pour it, when I realize. HE GOT ME BEANS!!! Nooooooooo! So, Im like starting to go into freakout mode here. Not only am I brutally upset he didnt get me coffee GROUNDS, Im starting to come up with insane ideas in my head like "waah its the little things that count!" "why doesnt he pay attention to the small details, I did remind him he needed to buy ground, does he pay no attention to me and my simple needs?" which I know is a little extreme for him buying me beans instead of ground, but oy I need my coffee to live.
Waaaah! Why me??
In the meantime, its gonna take some extra time to get movin' this AM for me, hopefully I live. ;) Standby!
Drama, Rant Over.

I have to include some fun pictures in every entry, just for, well, fun.
Here is my pile of wool customs, that NEED to go out tomorrow. Some items are parts of a custom, so they wont go out until the rest of the custom is complete. Most will be shipped tonight, and sent out tomorrow. :) Be patient though, its a lot of shipping to do, I promise to be timely though.
Another view, again, just for fun,
And now for the customs I finished last night.

And just for fun, a pic of my embroidery machine doing its magic for this applique, all my straight stitch appliques are done by me. :)
Samanthas Baby Set (Sorry, Samantha, you get 2 tshirts since I totally messed up and made the SS one first, I hope you dont mind. ;))
Samanthas Rocket Ship Set
And more "fun" pics. Here is a pic of me dyeing today. Excuse the totally splotched up dyepots, my dyepots have seen better days, and I need to wipe them off after Im done with them, look at all those splotches. Really though, I just need to buy some new pots, these ones HAVE seen better days, and like almost 3 yrs of dyeing!!!
And, I am trying to teach my sweet hubby to stir my dye pots so I can go off and sew while the dyepots are going. He thinks he is being funny in this pic. *rolls eyes & shakes head* Sigh. Male Humor.
* dyed 3 different colors for a few different orders.
* sewed Britts birdy shorts
* sewed Valeries Car Soaker
*Cut and appliqued Britts flower shorts (will sew up tomorrow)
I could have done better but with a crazy 2.5 yr old and 4 yr old today, I was lucky to get anything done. :)
Just for fun, I took a pic of me sewing tonight (valeries cover) and wow, remind me to suck in next time, cause all that frozen yogurt this week has given me a GUT!!!! My new goal is to go to the gym 4-5 times a week, b/c this picture puts my 98lb high school self into cardiac arrest!!!
Anyways, I didnt get a pic of anything else but this race car cover, which is gonna make my almost 5 yr old, who has been pottytrained since before he was 3, wish he was still in diapers!!! Thanks Valerie, I will e-mail you sometime this weekend!!
