    Same here!! This tease of nice weather just says, "come out and play". Although, my ankles are about 5x's the size they should be and it is very hard to walk too much!! LOL. I am getting the gardening itch. I have tried to make myself sit down and craft, but just can't do it today!!!

    Just get that pirate one done quick so my ds will have a bday present HAHAH~

    Just kidding, you can only do what you can do! Hope you can get some help this weekend. I know how hard it is when dh is either too busy to help or away and no one else is around to give you a breather!! It is just hard to do everything!!

    That is why we crafty moms must stick together and love each other no matter what!! :hug:

    You're getting there! Things happen, no biggie. We know you're good for it ;)

    I finally got to start crafting again last night :cuc: I finished the 2 slots for the pagan kids swap last night, pagan mamas this evening, and dragon 2 and 3 today. I am so excited! Now I have to get all my dragons sewn for dragon #1 which will take forever

    I'm sewing away at my dragons too - 10 is starting to seem like a lot and the 10th is right around the corner! And um, well, I haven't done more than bought supplies for everything else.

    I have lots on neat ideas though :D

    Must go make more dragons!

    You guys are very ahead of me on dragons. I am still drafting a pattern to fit what I see in my head!!! I just don't want to do it. I want it to be right in front of me so I can sit and sew. I may have to simplify just so I can get to that point because I have to make 9 and due date for the swap is right around the corner. Then there are others behind it. Must... stop.... obsessing... about 1 dragon pattern!!!

    That's exactly where I am as well. I have half of one finished but can't get the underbelly and pouch the way I want them so I have put it aside and I don't want to tackle it. But I have to because it's due to be shipped next week and I have to make 10 of them *yikes* I need to get moving. I am promising myself that I will start again on them tomorrow night.
