Slice of Life

Happy Monday!!  This weekend was a whirlwind of archery tournaments, client work, oh so glamorous laundry and a little sewing.  I thought I’d give you a glimpse into my weekend for fun.

First up was Friday.  I had a client meeting and then it was off to the State Archery Tournament which my youngest son and his school were competing in.  Unlike his older brother and sister who will KNOCK YOU DOWN to get in a picture….Wyatt hates having his picture taken so I have to take what I can get.

First, here is Wyatt giving me the stink eye because I am trying to take his picture (he’s the one off to the side with his hand on his hip):

(Notice his sweet friend who is more than willing to smile and pose for the shot since Wyatt is being uncooperative)

And….here is Wyatt doing a victory dance walking out after the tournament because his team is going to Nationals.  Just kidding….wouldn’t that be sweet….no, he’s beating his big brother’s shadow up with his shadow from behind while said big brother has no idea what is going on.

And….while my husband had my kids busy taking down a neighbors fence, I got a few minutes to myself and whipped up this little number.  It’s a slipcover made from a painters dropcloth.  I have plans to slipcover several of my chairs but I wanted to practice on an easy one first and I have to say….despite the grainy iphone pic, it looks great!  And the fabulous thing is that when it gets dirty (which it WILL) I can just throw it in the wash and bleach it.  It’s a fantastic dingy, off white color so it should wear well too.  Miss Mustard Seed has a great tutorial which is what helped me work up the nerve to try this.

Well I’m off…..have a great Monday!  If all goes well, I will have some posts up this week.  :)

I saw a lot of this over Christmas and when I saw this picture, I had to laugh.

In other news….my whole weekend kind of fell apart last week and I ended up not getting to finish my island.   Ahhh….c’est la vie.    That craziness trickled in to this week as well which explains my lack of posts.  Next week is lookin’ better….we shall see.  :)

Thoughtful Thursday

 

We are in a year that asks questions right now and have been for several years.  I am hoping 2014 is a year that answers.
