Just Doin' My Best

Momma always said, "just do the best you can"...so that is what I've been doing.  Not writing a lot....but for now...that's my best! Saddest part is I miss chatting with the friends I've met through blogging. 

Ok, I have to give up before I even begin.  Why?  Because my laptop that I typically use is with the Geek Squad being repaired (for the second time and it was purchased in March 2015)...so I decide to use my Mac and download photos from the new IPhone I got.  What happened?  It updated my phone (loosing all but two of the voice mails I have saved of my mother's voice) and put the photos into iphoto.  I can't seem to get them into Picasa, which I what I typically use.

Clearly....I'm having issues and each day I get to find out what the new mechanical issue of the day is!

Sorry...and Hello....and I give up trying to post today.

Upside down smiles to Mechanical Devices and Right Side Up Smiles to all my friends!

It has been three...yes 3...months since my last post. I know that sounds like an admission in a 12 step group meeting....btw...is there a 12 step group for bloggers?  I'm not and was not trying to stop blogging....I so desperately needed a break and time to attend to my business. 

 IHAN isn't my only business....really....my Biggest and Best  Business is raising 2 sons to become great men, friends, employees and spouses.  Oh yes, one more thing..... taking care of myself so as not to spend any more time with medical professionals that are not related to me or friends.

You want to see all the sewing I've done in the past three months?  I'll show you if you promise not to laugh....you have to promise FIRST.   I didn't hear you....louder please.... (now your family in the other room thinks your nuts for yelling at a computer screen and I'm laughing my bum off :)

Embroidered key chains to hold the boys thumb drives for school....yep....it was so time consuming and difficult...NOT.  Twenty minute quickie and I'm hoping this helps them to locate and not loose their thumb drives. 

First Day of School 2015 
The boys and I also have done some needle felting this summer....
Zachary made a snake....
and gave it a leash...wasn't sure if he planned on walking the snake or dragging it... but he had fun making it.

Aaron made a little character with fun eyes....our first attempts at needle felting.

The base of mine was started at the 577 Fiber Arts Show in June and I brought it home and finished it with the boys.
Can you tell what it is?  Use your imagination....and squint a little if necessary... .I wanted it to look like a fairy looking up in the night sky at a glowing moon.  I gave her a red pony tail and a multi-colored wing.  Are you asking yourself...what is the white and blue?  In my imagination....those are her legs stretched out and she is wearing leggings.  If you can't see it well....squint more...a whole lot more....until you can't see it at all and can only remember what I "said" it was....giggles.

Play Time is at the Toledo Museum of Art and we certainly played! 
There is quite an amazing piece of art that has been crocheted and isn't actually considered art until humans interact with it.  It was SOOOOO much fun!

 Swinging in the clouds.

They played so hard they needed a drink of water.  Clearly Zach played the hardest....after all he split out the seat of his pants!

No fancy quilting to show off....just some of what I've been up to in the last three months.  Now the boys are back in school, I've got my fingers crossed and I'm hoping to get back to the joys of stitching.
