Thinkin' cute

I've got two sick little boys so in between cleaning up poo and puke I'm trying to pretend I'm cute. I got my peasant shirt done the other day.
I'm happy with how it turned out. Now the weather can get warm so I can wear it and not freeze. My hubby of course says it isn't slutty enough. I wanted something I could wear in public. :) I have a couple of other patterns I want to do now. The next one I think will be hoodie. Maybe if I make it spring will get here. I have some of the fabric and it's nice and flowery. One thing I'd like to know is, what is it with cats and patterns?
Anytime I get one out here comes Gonzo to "help" me. I'm surprised I get anything done around here between the little boys and the animals help.
And on this note, here's hoping the boys get better and spring hurries up and gets here.

manic monday

I read about this contest and would love to win. My birthday is in March even. But I'm not going to hold my breath as I haven't ever really won anything.

Anyhoo, I was crazy today and went to Jo-Ann Fabrics. I should have known better seeing as it's Presidents Day and they're having crazy sales. But I wanted some fabric so I could make my peasant shirt. I've had the pattern for a while and with the sale and the coupon I had it will be pretty cheap. Cheap is good seeing as I've been calling it my slutty peasant shirt. ha ha. I had a maternaty one that was super cute and comfy so I wanted one that wasn't for big bellies. Although it may end up looking that way anyway. Such is life.
It took quite a while standing in line waiting for my turn to get my fabric cut. There were a bazillion people there. Lots of ladies loading up on the quilting fabric, and little me, with my one bolt of fabric, had to wait while they had 1/2 a yard of this and 1/4 yard of that on about 539 different bolts. Oy. It wouldn't have been so bad if Dillon hadn't decided to overflow his diaper, and then Tate was climbing on some stacked boxes and running around and around and around some yarn bins. I couldn't chase him, otherwise I'd lose my place in line and there was at least a mile behind me already. Usually he stays right by me, today, not so much. And I could have done without the nasty looks from uppity old lady. I'm sure your little darlings never had days like this. sheesh.

Well, I'd better go work on cutting out some fabric while the Dillon-zilla is down for a nap. I don't get much done with him "helping"

I finished doing our taxes last night, got the federal e-filed and got the state return in the mail today, so I feel very accomplished. I'm doing as little as possible today. It's also snowing outside so it's the perfect day to just hang out inside with some hot chocolate. I can't say there is peace and quite in here though....not with 2 boys... but as long as they're not crying I'm not going to complain. :)

These pictures are off my phone. They seem relaxing to me.
