Boring, that's me.  To me Boring = No sewing.  I've been doing things like taking the laundry to the laundromat because the washer can't be repaired until Monday and cleaning my MIL's carpets.  I did manage to see some movies with the kids this week.  Youngest DS and I saw the new Indiana Jones movie and Older DS and oldest DD and I saw "Wanted".  Both enjoyable.

DD2's friend brought over a dress for me to alter for her little sister who is a flower girl in a wedding.  Sigh, couldn't say no.  I'll be sewing up the sides tonight and then both girls are inviting friends over to have a late "chick flick" movie night with me.  We are watching 27 Dresses and 2 others I have already forgotten the names of.  I haven't had a chance to start quilting the star quilt yet.  I did show it to DD's friend because I can't keep a secret.  She is very excited.  I need to get it done before her next hospital stay which, sadly, could be soon.  Busy weekend with a sewing class at my Bernina dealer's and another fundraiser for DS1's football team.  Who knew football was a year round sport and if the KID plays, the MOM does, too?  Seems like it anyway.  The mom's had a meeting this week to plan how we will feed the boys for 2 a days in August.  Football is a grueling effort, for sure.  I admire the commitment these guys have to it.  DS2 will start playing his last year of biddy league football in August.  Next year he'll move to jr. high.  This will be his 5th season.  It's amazing what happens to incredibly kind, sweet boys when they get football pads and helmets on and the testosterone starts flowing.  It still takes some getting used to for me!

DD1 and I went shopping for "business casual" clothes today. Her current wardrobe is "college casual".  Lol.  She starts working full time at the local health clinic on Monday.  She will work 40 hours a week until school resumes in the fall and will also work on her breaks from college.  She wants to be a physician's assistant so this should be good training and give her some idea of what the job requires.

Here are the dotee dolls I received in the Craftster swap.
Love them!  It was a fun swap.

Time to sew the flower girl's dress before it's time for "Chick Flick Night".  DD2 doesn't get home from her lifeguarding job until 9 p.m. anyway.

Happy stitching!  Hope someone is making something wonderful out there.  I hope to, SOON!

I know what you mean ... I go through periods like that. Just got through one, as a matter of fact. Hope to see you onto something creative soon! By the way, LOVED the little Dia de los muertos dottee doll. That was truly inspired!!!
