hey ya’ll!

so not much going on … been doing my thing… but this time i cleaned too so its all good.

anyway i attempted to make the yogurt again… 3 times and failed miserably all 3 times… i don’t know what i’m doing wrong. well the 2nd attempt wasn’t my fault. my husband knocked my crockpot off the counter… don’t ask. i was pissed but didn’t show it.   no point in getting mad over people not giving a shit (sorry… i usually don’t curse over here but if you read my main blog you know i have a potty mouth) about what you’re trying to do and being careless about it in the process.  ANYWAY… this is where i come to relax so we are not gonna talk about HIM!

so i have wasted a lot of milk… i don’t know if i will try again for a minute… but i did try my hand at some monkey bread!  it was fabulous. only thing i would do different next time is make more glaze or a different kind. every recipe that i found used refrigerated biscuits but 1. so that is the one i used because i don’t really care for biscuits.  it was so good. i was very surprised. i bought one from the store a few years back and it was horrible! i’ll have to find that recipe and link it for those who want to try it.

*i linked it*

i also made my famous speckled butter beans in the slow cooker.  i love these things. i make them every week. hubby loves them too…  i used to make them for myself and not share but since i’m trying to be peaceful so i share.

what eles… oh i made some hair cream out of shea butter, aloe butter, coconut oil, vitamin E, and i think that is it…  i but some chocolate and coconut fragrance oil in it… why did i do that? i don’t like the smell but the hair butter is awesome!  i’ll have to whip up some more and remember what i but in it but fragrance it with something eles… this will be used on the kids!

i made some balls for the puppies… oh yeah i got more puppies… i will  be so happy when they are gone! i’m getting rid of the other 2 adults this week. i no longer like dogs. i will be keeping Troy… my first one.   she will be the only pet we have once all the puppies are gone. we have gone through snakes, fish, turtles, birds. rabbits… enough already.  i guess its because i didn’t really have pets growing up.  but i’m done. i might get some more fish but i think i’m done for a while.

i got her off Crai.gslist!  she was brand new in an unopened box.  i got it for $125 orginally around $300!  yeah!  so i called it my birfday present…  she is still in the box.  ihave yet to find s home in my junky studio so she will sit there till i get oganized.  woo hoo!

sorry i haven’t posted in a really long time.. if any of you follow my personal blog ya’ll know that i’ve been going through so marital crap.  just haven felt like doing much of anything.  i want to but just can’t bring myself to do it.  so anyway i finished Nephew’s blanket squares… not i’m bored with it.. its my whole finishits acting up.  but i’m gonna finish it soon.  i thought about a flat braid join… but i’m not that good and got a little confused.  so i started the single crocet around each square… whic is taking a minute.  but none the less it will be done. i might get it done next weekend while my 2 oldest kids are visitng thier father out of town.  2 less kids to tend too.  in other news… oh yeah i have decided to knit and crochet outfits for reborns.  i’ve start on one just to see it its something i wanna do.  so we shall see.  i can’t seem to finish anything without starting something else…  life long problem of mine!!  i have got to get it together!

almost done... just needs to be put together.

second attempt

at a post. i tried to post yesterday but accidentally deleted it and i didn’t feel like doing it again. so i will try this again.

here is my basket almost done. it is kind of slow cause i really don’t work on it unless i’m watching tv which hasn’t been a lot lately and now while i wait for the bus to drop the kids off. so i am almost done. i’m thinking of painting it and putting a lining in it to match my bathroom. can’t wait to finish it. and if all goes well there will be more of these to come!

i’ve been working on Miss Prissy’s hair because she started school… this is what i did yesterday. i saw this hair style on some kid movie the kids were watching the other day and thought it was cute. i found this blog from another blog. i think some of the styles are cute. i think she thinks she thought of them herself 😉 … little does she know little black girls have been wearing their hair like this for years!! but they are some cutes ones. some that i’ve done some new ones. so i’ll most likely do some of them.

Do you know

someone who just does not what you to do better when it comes to your craft…  i do.  and sad to say its someone who i would think would want me to do awesome things with my crafts… my mother.  when i was little i used to sit and watch my grandmother quilt… when we were allowed anyway.  but i used to love to watch her quilt and listen to the stories she would tell.  she passed away 3 years ago.  i miss my grandmother… Moy is what we called her.  i am glad that she got to see some of my quilts before she went to be with the Lord.  and she thought i was an awesome piecer and i always tried my hardest to please her.  that made my day.   so anyway as long as i can remember my mother has always had a quilter in the basement.  she rarely used it.  but within the last 5 years she been using it and now wants to up grade.  my older sister and i both enjoy piecing quilts and we both want to get into quilting.  heres where the dilemma lies… my mom lives about 45 minutes from my sister and i.  when we do take a quilt to her to be quilted it usually takes forever to get quilted.  i learned that if i want my quilt back then i’m gonna have to force her to do it while i am visiting so i don’t  have to make another trip out there.  which she usually does, but shes got that “you not gonna make me stop what i’m doing to quilt for you,” attitude… i can do without that.  so shes been shopping for a new long arm quilter.  well so have my sister and i.  and we both plan on getting one and using it.  my mother… we have no clue how shes gonna use hers.  she has a few clients that she quilts for but thats it.  my mother expects us to bring to her whatever business that comes our way.  like one time in  i had someone order a custom quilt from me.  i bought the fabric and pieced it together.  i had my mom quilt it.  that was 2 years ago.  to this day i still hear how i should have gave the order to her to do.  WTH!!!  1st she didn’t ask you to do it.  she asked me.  2nd my mom doesn’t piece for other people… well she hasn’t as far as i know.  damn can i get a business going!  and then she wanted ME to put HER an ad for quilting service on e.bay and craig.slist.  what is wrong with your fingers.  so i tell her to write down what she wants me to say and i’ll do it and of course pay the eb’ay fee… never heard about it again!  she irks the mess out of me when she starts that.  my sister and i plan on just doing our own stuff and selling that.  i’m sure we will branch out and do orders or what not but right now i’m not thinking of that.  so i’ve been trying to tell my mother for the longest that i don’t want to help her get one i wanna get my own.  but i’m not looking at the biggest ones out there.  i just want something simple that i can have.  shes looking at the Gammill… not the one that is $7000… more like the one that is $16,000. thats a bit (ok way out of my) price range.  plus i don’t think i have the space for it.   so every now and then my mother and i talk and i give my ideas and she says “what do you need one for”  WTH!!!  what do you need one for???  did your mother ask you that question?  i mean for real… what do you think i want one for?  like the other day.  i happen to find some plans to built a frame on ebay.  and i mention it to my mom and say i wish they gave a price range of what the cost of supplies would be cause my husband can put it together.  and that i wonder where one would buy the rods for it.  and she says… “i don’t need the rods.  i got those already.”  FOR ME!!!!  DUH! i wanna curse so bad.  she told me about 2 weeks ago that between the 3 of us we can come up with the money to get the $16,000 Gammill… do i look like i could afford that.  i have 3 kids going to school and bills and taxes… i don’t have money like that!  and if we did… where would the quilter be???  at her house!?!?  i don’t think so.  so she didn’t like my answer.  whatever.  i don’t care anymore.  she think she can stay home and not work and we foot the bill for that shes got another thing coming.  so i have said FORGET her and i’ll just get it and not tell her about it.  i’ll get talked about for it but whatever.  so this is what i want.  Bailey”s Home Quilter.  it is a long arm.  and i know i can handle $1600.   i will have hubby build me a frame for it.  so i think… i will be able to get it next year…  and then it will be all good… i CAN”T WAIT!!!

ok i’m done venting… that is all!

binding off

YAY!!!!

i started binding of today. i’m not to happy with how off my stitches are BUT i refuse to frog again. soooo i am curious to see what it will look like blocked. i plan to work on the BO tomorrow also. figure it will most likely take all day considering i will work in spurts. i hope to get it blocked friday morning so i can put it on hubby’s side of the room where no one will go all day and its by the iron sooo no one will bother it. i hope to get it done as saturday is granny’s birthday party.
(man i miss my camera)

so i’m looking around the web lately and i really want to get into sewing little things like wallets and purses and diaper bags and stuff. so i’ve been looking for patterns and tutorials. what i really want to do is make my own design… yeah uh huh.   i also want to eventually do clothes… my dilemma… I CAN’T SEW STRAIGHT TO SAVE MY LIFE. i suck. no matter what i do whatever i sew is crooked. so i guess i will have to practice. my sis wants to do craft shows this fall. and i really want to do them with her… my other dilemma… shes doing baby quilts. mine are far better than hers i think… but since she suggested it i’ll let her have it. which makes me sad. but i will figure out something else. she wants me to knit baby bibs and dish rags. ugh. you know how many i would have to do in order to have enough and how much i would be sick of them by the time i got to that number??? nope i don’t think so.

so heres what i want to work on for my girls…

its made of plastic canvas…  so the more i look online at furniture patterns the more i’m kind of mad i bought it.  cause i had a plan to make a doll house from a book case. BUT i saw this and changed my mind.  so now i’m back to the book case cause i feel that will be easier.  so i might keep this for later or sell it.  but i have some time to think on it.  ok i’m tired though i have done absolutly nothing today… but i haven’t got much sleep since the stupid dogs keep waking me up at all hours of the night.  GOD please send someone to buy them!!!!  please…

that is all.

Shower next friday

i took the quilts to my mom on tuesday…

i went over yesterday morning, she had not started them YET…

i’m going over there tomorrow evening….

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE BE DONE!!!!!!!!!

i know she won’t have even started them. and i’ll probably end up sitting with her all night to have them done… maybe if i go over there early and have Twin pick up the kids when she goes to pick up Niece then i can get her to have them done by tomorrow night… hmmmm… most likely she will do it just so she can peek in on my puppies… but as of right now hubby does not want her at my house. long messed up story but if you’d like to read about it go here… excuse my language i can get a little raw at times. 😉 anyway… i really want them finished by the weekend cause i need to do the label. my older sister suggest i wait to put the label on so they won’t get quilted over… since she suggested it maybe i can get her to hand sew them on too… i hate sewing by hand… she also suggested i hand sew the binding on… she would.. i mean she loves to sew by hand why wouldn’t she suggest it. to bad shes on spring break this week. i’d have her sew on the binding too! so i’m also thinking of maybe some receiving blankets… as i was burp cloths and bibs… but got to thinking… shes having twins so that means twice as much work… so i’ll just buy something. maybe a box of diapers… never can have to many diapers! especially with twins.

oh does anybody know how to make some cute patches for jeans??  or at least where i can find a pattern or tut on the net.  i’ve serched and come up with nothing!  thanks

that is all
