Sorry I kinda fell off the map... We were going through the fussies... Days when I couldn't do ANYTHING because he was in rock-me mode. ALL day. Sit him down for more than 3 seconds and the grunting starts... Grunting continues for 2-3 minutes and then the crying starts. I think we're over the hump now... He's settling into a routine that actually includes a nap. I've managed to get in 2 good stretches of freezer cooking over the past few days! So I reckon I'll get my crafting finished this coming week. I can already tell I'll be a few days late on sendout though... Paydays are Mondays so I won't have postage until the 30th unless I get a couple of good paid surveys between now & then.

Kahlans-mommy, I'm so sorry --- those days are really ROUGH!  Here's hoping this rough patch is behind you now!  Wink

I won't be finishing this weekend after all.  We have to take a trip to Dallas (~6 hrs away) for a couple of days on real short notice, so instead of crafting, I'm doing gobs of laundry, packing, etc for 10 people.  I'd much rather be crafting, but it's for a great cause.... my son's case was accepted by Scottish Rite children's hospital for review (and hopefully treatment,) and that's a huge blessing for us.  #1 -- they are fabulous and can help my son.  #2 -- they are free.  WIN-WIN!  Wink  So I'll be sending by next Friday for sure.

Freezer cooking sounds like quite an accomplishment with a fussy baby!

barbolot, that sounds like a blessing.


We have about a week 'til sendouts, everyone!

It wasn't the HUGE sessions you see some ladies write about... I made a HUGE batch of beans... Set 'em to soak, feed the baby, rinse 'em, scoop some out to freeze for cooking later, set the rest to cooking, feed the baby, drain 'em, season some and freeze, put the rest in the crockpot for refried beans, feed the baby... The next day he actually took a nap and I managed to cook some meat and make burritos & biscuits and freeze them.

Can't craft on the weekend or I would be working right now... DH raises a HUGE stink if I sew while he's watching TV because my machine is old & loud...

Actually... *heads off to find the stuff needed for my big sister project*

Still around! I kinda need to go supply hunting, but I don't know if I'll make it there. It takes me about 45 minutes to get to my "local" fabric store. There's one closer, but it's crap and expensive. Boo.

I've managed to use stuff from my stash for aaaalmost everything. I might have to bite the bullet and just go to the crappy fabric store...

Keep smiling - It makes people wonder what you're up to.

Looking for Australian personal swaps! [For now. I'll branch overseas when I can afford it!]

Still, that's pretty impressive in my book. Smiley

I haven't finished my own crafting.  I've planned to have a "big" crafting session today and either get this project knocked out, or almost so.

I'm done, I'm done!! So excited to be posting off in the morning Cheesy

I took a 'one for you, one for me' approach when crafting for Nostrum so I think I might have a few days rest now before my little one gets here NEXT WEEK!!!
