good morning monday!

Good Monday Morning my bloggy pie friends!
I should not be sitting her on the computer as I have an order for 14 shirt and tie pillows that I need to finish.  well, they're all cut out.  I guess that's good, since that's what takes the longest.  Sometimes I just don't want to sew.  unless I have some great burst of inspiration.. but these pillows, do not do it for me.  lol!  
sometimes I have so much other stuff going on with family, work, orders and other responsibilities that I get myself a little attitude.  which is why those pillows arent done yet.  I wanted to do anything other then work on those, so I cleaned and dusted yesterday. you know I must have been desparate if I was cleaning over sewing!   lol!  But it was for me, because  clean house is a gift you give yourself! 

I shouldnt complain too much.  I do find time to craft here and there.  I couldnt live with out it.  I did a couple of valentine swaps with a couple friends and made these mice above.  but now that Im looking at the picture, I realize that I never gave them whiskers!  duh!  Barb and Marlene, if youre reading this, please give them whiskers!  lol!

this is what I recieved from one of the girls, Barb!  its a mouse sailing on the SS VIV!  how cute is that!?  Love it! the other I havent recieved yet.  but I'll be sure to post a pic when I do!

I also did mushroom valentine swap with another friend.  this is what she made me!  Love it!  I tried to upload another picture of it so you can see the spool base.. but blogger wont let me right now for some reason.   I cant show you what I made her yet, because she hasnt recieved it yet!  but I will when she does.
HOw 'bout these adorable treat bags!?  cute or what?  1.00 at the dollar general  I couldnt pass them up.  now.. what shall I put in them?  

Okeedokie bloggy friends.. I really need to get ready for work!  so toodles and have a great day!

Your cute Valentine's are so inspiring! i love the felt. I have never tried needle felting and I want to give it a try sometime.
Hey, now that you dusted, you don't have to do it for a long while. At least that's the way it is for me! Have a great week, Viv!

Viv, I laughed about choosing cleaning over sewing...I used to say when I got mad I would clean house....I try not to get that mad anymore. LOL. I loved your cute Valentine things. The mouse is so cute. Blessings to you, xoxo,Susie
