sewing critics

I am learning to sew, which means i have many good intentions and just not enough actual experience. So with that being said I start off with the doggy jacket.

Now i am not saying i never made anything, I made several blankets, skirts, dresses, purses aprons, curtains, pajama pants etc.... My brother and husband hate everything i have made for them. The dress for a dance and graduation they were loved.

Now i get to the jacket for the fur babies. Max my min pin hates clothes. So getting my daughter to wrangle him up and hold while i measure was a trick beyond measure. I think we have won wars easier than that.

I begin to plot, and here at this point my lovely daughter the voice of treason begins.

ME: Ohh this will look so Good on Max.
EC: Mom Max hate sweaters.
Me: If he gets cold enough he will wear them.
Hubby: Lets make him booties!
EC: Mom ya know he did eat your Micky mouse hat.

With that being said i have put sweaters on my dog before he looked at me like i was killing him. Then he went outside and rolled in the mud in said sweater. I have not put one on him since. Now my EC said maybe it was the color..........

I have to wonder why do i sew?

which movie star am I

You Are an Ingrid!
You are an Ingrid -- "I am unique"

Ingrids have sensitive feelings and are warm and perceptive.

How to Get Along with Me
* Give me plenty of compliments. They mean a lot to me.
* Be a supportive friend or partner. Help me to learn to love and value myself.
* Respect me for my special gifts of intuition and vision.
* Though I don't always want to be cheered up when I'm feeling melancholy, I sometimes like to have someone lighten me up a little.
* Don't tell me I'm too sensitive or that I'm overreacting!

What I Like About Being an Ingrid
* my ability to find meaning in life and to experience feeling at a deep level
* my ability to establish warm connections with people
* admiring what is noble, truthful, and beautiful in life
* my creativity, intuition, and sense of humor
* being unique and being seen as unique by others
* having aesthetic sensibilities
* being able to easily pick up the feelings of people around me

What's Hard About Being an Ingrid
* experiencing dark moods of emptiness and despair
* feelings of self-hatred and shame; believing I don't deserve to be loved
* feeling guilty when I disappoint people
* feeling hurt or attacked when someone misundertands me
* expecting too much from myself and life
* fearing being abandoned
* obsessing over resentments
* longing for what I don't have

Ingrids as Children Often
* have active imaginations: play creatively alone or organize playmates in original games
* are very sensitive
* feel that they don't fit in
* believe they are missing something that other people have
* attach themselves to idealized teachers, heroes, artists, etc.
* become antiauthoritarian or rebellious when criticized or not understood
* feel lonely or abandoned (perhaps as a result of a death or their parents' divorce)

Ingrids as Parents
* help their children become who they really are
* support their children's creativity and originality
* are good at helping their children get in touch with their feelings
* are sometimes overly critical or overly protective
* are usually very good with children if not too self-absorbed

quilting/sewing resolutions not list....

Hello Everyone,

I have been suffering from the Flu this month and finally my cough sounds slightly better and I no longer sound like Mr. Ed. Everyone in my home has been suffering from strip throat to the flu since Christmas falling one by one like dominoes the the creeping cruds.

As I sat at home pouting because I planned a vacation around the last Gala meeting and also planned to go to Sunday Best Quilts and visit the new store to buy more fabric for my fabric stash then I could not go the cruds got me.

So sipping on Nyquil and Tea I came up with a list of things

I want to accomplish by each Gala monthly meeting; using that as my cutoffpoints. My MIL read my list and spewed her coffee and my daughterf ell over laughing. Don't even ask about the dogs.

So without further delay I will give you my quilting resolutions for 2009!

1.Pay Gala Dues…….Missed 2 meeting in a row …... pouting bad….

2.Finish the 2 lovely baby blankets for my brother and Niece. I got the kits from Joann's and they have been sitting in my shed ever since. Ok it's been cold and I have not been outside.

3. Start on my Sewing list or at least make headway...yes i plan on doing the projects in the list and these.

4. Scoodies cause its darn cold here.

5.A floor quilt. I heard of this so this will be my one big projectfor the year.

6.I received over the holidays a gift of 2 baby quilt tops from a friend. They are made from her clothes when her and her sisters were little. I want finish them up and bind them.

7.I received another orphan quilt top and quilt pieces. I want to finish it and recycle the rest.

8.I want to make a quilted tea cozy... 10 of them, quilted bowls and/or boxes and quilted tea wallets.

9.A jelly roll quilt top……just the top

10.An Asian inspired quilt to cover my table for Tea parties.

11.A Latin inspired table topper Quilt for my dining room with placemats, heat pads, casserole cover and pot holders.

12. 2 donation baby quilts…ok maybe just the tops………..

13. Learn one new quilting/sewing technique every month.

14. Use at least ¼ of my stash by the end of the year BEFORE making anymore MAJOR purchases or at least use ½ of what I buy within 3 months.

My MIL took my tea making sure I did not slip in any liquor in there and as I sat making my list. Did anyone else make any sewing/quilting resolutions this year??

Hope to see everyone in February. I have doubled up on myVitamin C and drinking Green Tea.

have fun;

D The Germ

The Dear MIL who Got sick because of D the germ and Of course my Daughter who is now the only one beside the dogs who is not sick.
