Not so lazy weekends

What a satisfying weekend! I woke up Saturday morning feeling exhausted. There must be a bug going around. The kiddos have had stuffy noses and hubby has stayed home from work the past couple of days. Tired as I was, I decided to make a new batch of pancake mix using the recipe found in my March issue of Country Living. Naturally, the boys decided they just wanted cereal, and hubby wanted hashbrowns.

T's Cub Scout Pack is selling flower bulbs for our Spring fundraiser, so we set out to sell to a few friends before heading into town. The boys were surprisingly patient with me as I shopped (perhaps they knew that if they didn't behave they wouldn't be able to go play at Grandma & Grandpa's house!)

I've had my eye on these sheets for months, and once they found their way onto clearance, I knew it was fate. They were made for my antique bed.

I also picked up some new patterns - much to my husband's dismay. A girl can never have too many! I found a pattern for vintage aprons (Simplicity 3544) and Simplicity patterns 2968 & 3835.

The first three fabrics were a steal. They normally sell for $6-$9 a yard, and I found them on clearance for .99/yd! The red & blue will be turned into a "vintage" apron, the blue will be used with Simiplicity 2968, the marroon flowered will be turned into a dress from Simplicity 3835, and the other two will become Emmaline aprons.

Once the shopping was done, I dropped the boys off with my dad, brother, and my brother's little ones. My mom, sis-in-law, and I took off for a girl's afternoon at Beads and Botanicals where we made 1 necklace, 1 pair of earrings, 2 bracelets, and 3 danglies (2 for my necklace and 1 for my mom's pearl necklace).

Sunday was pretty boring. I worked on the "Family Tree" that I'm painting on the wall. It's almost finished - just waiting on my dad to cut some wood for the silhouettes.
