I’ve been slacking lately. Even though it’s almost October, I feel like I’m still trying to get into this school-schedule thing. I just keep forgetting things I’m supposed to do and places I’m supposed to be.

(I forgot I was committed to watch my neighbor’s son on Wednesday, and went visiting teaching instead. Oops.)

However, since I do have a couple of free hours everyday when Colby’s napping, I’ve been trying to organize a few things.

Like my hobby room.

I’m about halfway done.

Here’s (part of) my fabric stash, sitting on my bed while I try to sort it out:


Ugh. Seriously.

But now I know what I’ve got and where it’s at, so you all can look forward to receiving some darling flannel burp cloths for Christmas.

Actually, speaking of flannel, I had some leftover scraps from the birthday pennants I made last year sometime. I made another one, and now I’m giving it away.


It’s three yards long and reversible–apples and cherries with hearts on one side, rockets and planets on the other. It’s a great re-usable birthday decoration. I wish I could point you to where I saw it and give that person credit, but it was much too long ago. Sorry. We can just pretend it was my idea, if you want.

Comment on this post and I’ll draw a winner in, oh, say a week.

Congratulations on reading my blog even though it’s been boring lately. You could win. In fact, I hope you all win. That’s just the kind of person I am.

That banner is a great idea! I don’t like the store bought stuff.

I am working on my birthday prowess. A banner would help. Your blog is not boring, by the way. I loved the Bullseye entry, for example. I was inspired, converted to all that is scouting, and laughed like crazy.

here we go again…in third grade I always thought my art projects were cute…until I saw Wendy’s (and Niki’s)…I have made plenty of pennants….but reversible? Genius!!!

I’m thinking about starting a used car lot. The pennants would be a step in the right direction.

You KNOW I want some. Too bad they aren’t Hogwarts-esqe. I could’ve used them for Liam’s b-day party last week.

If organizing fabric and sewing banners is your idea of slacking I don’t think we can be friends. Also, if it weren’t for my Blackberry & electronic reminders I would forget my own name. Sign me up for the cuteness!

Me too. Our birthday decor in the past consists of computer paper and markers. Help please!

If I don’t win I want to know how to make them. What great birthday fun!

oh, I’ve been meaning to make a birthday banner for years. Maybe I won’t have to:)

I have serious fabric stash envy…I wish my stash was that big!

What a great idea Wendy! Now I know what to do with all the leftover fabric I have – I am making quilts for the girls for Christmas and I have a ton of extra squares – I’ll have to put them to good use 😀

Ignore what Jeff says. I’ve been thinking of making something like this but since you already did…… Love you!
