Baby Boy Goodies

So I had to wait for the diaper bag to come in before I could share the pictures. My favorite customer from Ak makes all my diaper bags in exchange for quilting. I really think I get the best of the deal here. A. I wouldnt charge her if I had to ask for money. She is 85 and is diligently making quilts for all of her family to have something from her. She spoils me rotten with homemade gifts ALL the time, she makes WH cookies and goodies everytime he stops by there, and she calls him her ever lovin little darlin.
This woman has stolen my heart. B. She is WH's gmas BFF. Nuff said, lol.....
The diaper bag was actually done way before the shower. When WH went to AK to pick it up he would have been home in plenty of time to wrap it with the other gifts. BUT.......There is always a but with me, have you noticed that? But his mom (who lives in Hawaii) got very sick. Scared us both silly, so WH took off from AK to see her in Hawaii. She is ok thank heavens. Taking too many different meds ca…

When Its Dreary Outside

I want to sew....Even though I have two stash flimsies still to start I just couldnt get into the quilt mood. Which really isnt good because I have two baby quilts that need to be quilted and mailed before Disney World..Sigh...Its that W.A.B. disease again. (for those of you that may have missed that post its Work Avoidance Behaviour, and I have a very severe case)
So instead I decided to Kraft With K ! She has an amazing blog with all sorts of fun things. But I was REALLY interested in a certain project she had listed. An insulated lunch bag! A very good friend of mine is going to be taking some special schooling in a couple months and I am making her a "goodie" basket. Well until I found this lunch bag. Now all her "goodies" are going into it!
Her instructions were wonderful! Well let me rephrase that Her pictures were wonderful and I KNOW her instructions must have been too. Only the phone rang and it was my Tennessee BFF and well I forgot to actually follow the i…

As a graduation gift to our son we are bringing his best friend down from AK and taking them to Disney World.Just finished paying it off today. SO SO SO very excited to go! After all its the happiest place on earth!

Bad Chicken Momma!

That would be me!
So here is the story. I just would like to say at the beginning of this that I am a NEWBI when it comes to these chickens!
Evidently last week my hen Sandy laid a baby egg. This would be different in her eyes then an eating egg. In my eyes however I saw eating egg. This would be where the problem started. Sandy had gotten up off of the nest and so I took it. And we ate it! I had NO CLUE!!!!
This however was a BAD BAD BAD thing to Sandy! She became depressed. I mean REALLY really depressed! Who knew!!! I didnt!!!! All of a sudden she wouldnt leave her brooding box. She sat in there day after day. So sad and depressed. It didnt take me long to realize that I was a bad chicken mom. I neglected to see the brooding signs......
So I facebooked a friend who I knew had chickens. Not sure what to do and she had the greatest idea. She brought me 12 fertile eggs and late last night I placed them under Sandy. The first 4 she couldnt of cared less. After that though she started to re…
