Craft Buds is hosting a craft book linky party this month and I just barely remembered that I needed to submit my entry before September ends.
The challenge is to create something out of one of our lovely craft books (that tend to sit around collecting dust, but are so essential that it’s heresy to think of getting rid of them) and link up the creation to their party.
Thankfully it doesn’t have to be a new project so I’m linking up my felt raccoon from Aimee Ray’s book, Doodle Stitching.
I was hoping to have the baby quilt I’m currently working on for little Lucy (also from Doodle Stitching) finished in time, but sadly, it’s not quite done.
Okay, not even close.
But the raccoon saves the day. ;)
If you want to see some awesomeness you should go check out the amazing projects that have been linked up this month.
Like we all knew it would, the time went too fast. They’ve already come and gone, leaving behind a lifetime supply of baking yeast and a parent-sized hole in my heart : (
Look at the interesting little visitors we had in our yard recently!
These photos were actually taken in our neighbors yard since they ran across the street when we snuck outside.
The only thing missing was the puff of dust on the horizon from Wile E. Coyote falling off a cliff somewhere.
How many of you have ever had a roadrunner in your yard?
….we’re having for dinner tonight?
So the other day Madeline had a ladybug crawling on her arm and she really freaked out. You know, screaming in terror sort of thing.
Then this morning at about 1 she woke up screaming bloody murder and when I went in there she was holding her arm and screaming about bugs biting her. When I picked her up she was on fire and by the time I found the thermometer she was throwing up. Our thermometer read 106 and 107. Neither of my girls has ever run a fever that high and it scared me so I put her in the car and took her to the ER in Kaufman. Well…four hours later we were still waiting to be seen and the motrin and tylenol had lowered her temp (which by the way read 104 at the hospital, not 107)so I brought her home without seeing the doctor.
She’s had a pretty high temp all day and it keep spiking when her medicine wears off. She’s been complaining all day of bugs biting her feet. Is she hallucinating? Losing circulation? Just not feeling well and that’s what she’s scared of at the moment? Has anyone had their kids do something similar? I’m at a loss.
