A late weekend in review

Well I consider the weekend a partial bust! I did get some things done but I didn't do what I really wanted to do. I really wanted to sew!

I had planned to sew on Saturday. I had no plans and I had all day to do it. What did I do you ask? I slept most of the day and then watched television! I was too tired to sew or even really consider pulling out my sewing machine! Arrgghh! I woke up around 9am. I didn't get home from scrapbooking until 12:30 pm. I came home brushed my teeth and cleaned up and went to bed. I then got up and prepared to make Adrienne's Potato Soup. The only thing I did was bake the potatoes! There were four of them! After I baked the potatoes I took a nap. When I woke up I was still very tired! I mean really really tired! I finally pulled myself together went out to get gas and go grocery shopping at two stores. Then I came home and sat down and watched television and did some crocheting (but not much). I was just too pooped! The only reason I could come up with was the cold/virus thing I have and the late night crop (I am really not a night person. I am definitely a morning person). I think it through me off.

Anyway I did finish Adrienne's baked potato soup on Sunday morning and I took it to my mother's home for dinner. It was very good. She liked it a lot. I added an additional can of cheddar cheese soup, some milk and made more bacon. I also bought some dinner rolls too. Great for the winter! I suggest you make it! It's pretty easy! We ate it and preceded to take a nap! LOL! I went home watched Cold Case File and that was it!

Now Friday night was my most productive night. I went to a crop at Scrap Addict a new store in my area. I worked on two layouts I made at a CTMH scrapbook class the first time I went. The layouts were ready for photos and I found two of my mother that fit perfectly.
The lady in the upper right hand corner is a friend of my mother's. Her name is Gwen and she is one of the sweetest and the classiest lady. She has been a wonderful friend to my Mother. I thought her picture would be just perfect for this layout.

I also made this Disney album. I bought the kit at Scrappin' Deals for my Disney photos of course! I just need to find the right pictures to put in it!

I also worked on may layouts of my brother I had worked on at a crop last month. I still need to finish some details then I will post those. I had a kind of brain freeze while I was at the crop but then I got my second wind and really started to come up with some ideas. I wish they would have come earlier though.

I am hoping to do some sewing this weekend. I did wash a lot of clothes Sunday morning and I also washed the fabric for my latest and greatest project. It should be simple and easy! Wish me tons of luck!
Here is the fabric I am using. I bought it at Wal Mart. I just washed it so it is wrinkled!
Remember to check out Wal Mart's fabric department if you sew. You can find some awesome deals there!
Well this is my weekend recap. I hope you enjoyed it!
Buh Bye!
