There is an amazing stillness in the house right now and I am really enjoying. I know it can't last for too much longer. At some point I will need to move myself from my comfy spot on the couch and wake the wild hoards, but for now, I am content to sit in the quiet. *sigh* Everything about this morning is whispering to me that it is Saturday. I was out late last night as if it were a Friday evening after a long week at work, lol. (with the kids being home as my "work" and being at book club as my "happy hour")

I ventured downstairs and made coffee, started a fire, surfed my favorite blogs, and sat to work on the last few rows of the skirt of Lauren's dress. You asked for progress shots and here are a few for you. That mug with the "K" was a birthday gift from Jacob. I saw it the grocery store one day when he and I were there, I told him how it would be a good gift... and he remembered. :) I love that boy/pre-teen. And these tasks are what I do most everyday, but on Saturday's I do it while everyone is sleeping, and that is what they're all doing now.

It's funny, I took that center photo on the coffee table because back on Monday we had friends over for a play date and the dad that was here has Lauren completely convinced that I am making her table cloth. Funnier still is that she is really excited about it being a table cloth, LOL!! My stars she can be a hoot.

*sigh* What a week huh? So much excitement. Another reason I feel like it is Saturday, the hecticness is finally slowing. I can't tell you how much I am looking forward to Monday. Crazy sounding, I know, but I am desperate to have some studio time. I want to/need to/have to get back to some normalcy. There are ideas to be worked out, and jewelry to be made, and I don't know what else... I need the time to figure it out while I have the energy!! LOL.

I hope you enjoy your weekend... whatever day it is.

Oh Kerry,
I luv,luv,luv that mug ~ the fleur-de-lis is one of my most favorite French symbols. I want...
And, that purple is just scrumptious! I can see some Kerry beady embellisment added: fake button beads or a bead pin; small hollows with dots or bumps, or something stripey. Can't wait to see Lauren model her 'tablecloth' - ha!!
Enjoy the quiet...
