Megan at Crochet Every Day is doing a crochet-a-long with patriotic star coasters. And the pattern is totally something I can do! So I'm going to. I'll work on them on the airplane going to and maybe coming back from Peoria. Here is the pattern!

I've been making more progress on my fairy. I've been planning on making this cross stitch for a year or so. I've made lists, gone shopping etc. I still don't have all of the floss I need. And I've lost some of my packets. It's a little frustrating and hard to do with not all of the materials, but I'm persevering. I have to finish it before I start anything else. And I do have other plans :)

I made these at school waiting for kids to finish their exams. I'm trying to get more granny squares done so I can grow my afghan. Maybe I should institute a special day to post the granny squares I've done that week. I'll try to come up with a cute name. HA!

We also went to the little farmers stand to see what fruits we could find. I knew we wouldn’t eat a whole bucket of anything, so she made us up a mixed bucket of some orange things, peaches and cucumbers, and a watermelon. We’ve been enjoying those a lot.
Friday during our shopping around, I found 2 plates at Big Lots for $3 each.

This is me unapplying hardware to paint the door.

Saturday I got up early intending to wash down Gracie’s walls because this was her room re-do weekend. Scott hid the cleaner from me, so I folded laundry and started cooking. This week was payday for both of us, so I was able to go to the store. I cooked a chicken Friday night and took it apart Saturday morning. It made 5 big dishes and 1 small soup. Then I made chicken stock in the crock pot. I also made 2 bags of beans over the week. With the beans and stock, I freeze them in 1-cup increments and use them in recipes when I need to. The beans mostly go in my dishes, but chicken stock is useful anytime.
So I cooked, then I started on Gracie’s room. I’ll post more of that on a separate post with pictures. It seemed so intimidating, but it didn’t end up that way. By the end of the weekend, I’m pretty pleased with it.
We went shopping around Friday night and she was getting all excited about picking out her own door knobs, then looking at bathroom fixtures and kitchen fixtures. She told Scott that the one in our bathroom was so ugly. She will be a force of nature someday.
We went to a kid’s birthday party Saturday and it was a lot of fun. She had a blast, but it was hot hot hot!
I ended up doing things I needed to do and things I wanted to do. I even started on her dance scrap book. Talk about amateur hour! I started on bias tape for an apron I want to make soon. And I have ideas going. I’m very happy about that.
