How did it get to be Thursday already?

DS wanted to try on his t-shirt. It turned out to be a little big but maybe it will shrink a little in the wash. I also started working on two more t-shirts yesterday for my niece and nephew. I can't show the pictures here because I want them to be a surprise. Yes - they read my blog!

Monday afternoon, both kids came inside fussing at each other so I sent them to their rooms. DS promptly turned on the Shrek 2 CD and turned up the volume - loud! I yelled for him to turn it down. A while later it occurred to me that he was being rather quiet, so I went to check on him. The music was turned up loud enough that I could hear it from the headphones! I don't know how he ever fell asleep with that blaring in his ears. I turned the music off and left him to nap.

I have heard more complaints that I have not been posting often enough. I haven't gotten to sew in the last week or so. Plus the things I need to be working on right now are "Top Secret" until after I see Nina in a few weeks. Hey - It is finally JUNE! Yeah!!!

Today, we are having a "chick" lunch to meet our new preacher's wife and kids. They will be moving here in July. After lunch, I need to come home and re-straighten up the house because their whole family, plus the family they are staying with, are coming to dinner. Thankfully, my house stayed relatively clean since we had company on Monday. I told Nina that the term "relatively clean" meant it was clean enough for relatives!

Time to go make some chicken and grapes salad for lunch. Oohh! That made me think about the wonderful chicken cashew croissants they have at this cute little restaurant in Indiana that Nines and me would go to whenever possible.

Saw your comment on Melody's blog, and thought I'd give you the link to mine, as I am a dyer and run the Dyers' Webring - have a look at where you can see my latest fabric. Dye activator (which is soda ash) fixes the dye, and stops the colour from coming out so you can safely wash it. Dharma will no doubt have full instructions. Most beginners start with the basic primaries, - I would suggest at least 6 colours to start playing with.

Even if it's not very quilty for you lately, I still enjoy hearing about your days!

I love the picture of your son with the headphones... too bad most pictures don't come with sound! :)
