No, I'm not Hiding :)

I know it seems like forever since I've posted, I've been so busy I don't know weather to scratch my watch or wind my butt....honestly.  Yesterday was Zach's 7th Birthday.
Lots of planning and preparations for a Pokemon Birthday party for a few of his friends on Sunday.  What do I know about Pokemon?  Nothing....I've been doing my research....I'm so grateful for Google :)

I've also been preparing for the Cub Scout Cross Over on Saturday and below is a little Tiger I've been working on for the flag.  Researching good scissors has always been fun....and while cutting out this little orange Tiger....I was extremely grateful I own some of the best applique scissors on the market. 

Oh and you know what else is a life saver?  Robert Kaufman's Boy Scout Fabric line.    I am telling you, Robert Kaufman Fabrics totally Rocks!!!!  Check out how neat the fabrics are that I get to make the flag with.....aren't these just so perfect? I will post photos of the flag when it is done.
Yesterday a package arrived in the mail, Girls World by Jennifer Paganelli.  I won an on-line class and this book with patterns from SewCalGal's blog a few weeks ago.  Now I have something Girlie to look forward to after the Cub Scout Flag is finished :)
Part of my brain is in Salt Lake City today.  Today is Schoolhouse and you know how much I love to run from room to room seeing all the new designs and getting a sneak peak at all the latest gadgets.  I am missing some of my friends who are there....and sad I won't be seeing the same time  I also know a Momma can't be missing her son's 7th birthday and Cub Scout Crossover....if she can at all help it....and thankfully I can....but I'm still thinking about Spring Quilt Market.



  1. HAPPY BIRTHDAY ZACH!!!!! Girl, you should have asked me about Pokemon, lol. Or was it Yugioh....sigh. The things a mom has to do for her boys. Love the tiger and boy scout fabrics!
    So freakin' jealous over that Girl's World!

  2. Can't wait to see your flag! I remember doing the Cub Scout "stuff" and I was even Cub Master for a while! (Guess I should have learned to shut up and quit making helpful suggestions, huh?!)

  3. Ok, I give up....what are the best applique scissors on the market? I'm guessing the Famore, but I want to be sure before I buy them! Thanks..

  4. Happy belated birthday Zach! Poo to blogger for having issues so we couldn't do it sooner.

    i can't wait to see the falg... And Congrats to the boy Scouts on crossing over. That's a big deal!

    Hugs from the southern end of the state...

  5. Great job on the tiger! and those seventh birthdays are special.

  6. I didn't know about the Cub Scout line, that is awsome.

    happy late birthday to your son.
