Did you see that?????

I pulled into the lead... okay by a measly hour, but still it's the first time I've been in the lead all month! Thanks to all of you who are rooting for me... I can and will beat Jen and Jill!
Yesterday I got to work a half hour early, so I did some more frog stitching. Then at lunch I wrapped fabric on my clothesline for an hour... did it at afternoon 15 min break too. It was raining, so we couldn't walk. When I got home I worked on a nurture next pillowcases for an hour while Paul made supper.
We have a family reunion on my mom's dad's side of the family this weekend and my aunt had asked me to print some pictures, so I worked on that for a while... and then on printing wedding pictures. I got about 60 printed before quiting for the night. I was going to put more paper in this morning and print the other 40 I had checked... wouldn't you know the electricity went out in the middle of the night, so I have to go back and redo them tonight! While I was setting the scanner up to the computer I was IM'ing with Jill. We talked for a good hour or so. It sure makes computer work go faster when you can talk to someone at the same time. I use yahoo... teachspeech14 is my ID... but I know that hotmail works with it too if i have the address in. I chat with my mom all the time and she is on hotmail. So if you want to chat, drop me a line.

So when Paul went to bed, I went to my sewing studio... I finished up the pillowcase for the nurture nest. It's a round pillow for new mothers who are nursing. I made the case for one for my SIL. I think they are a great idea. Have any of you used them?? Then I worked on YBR quilts and decided that would get boring and I would much rather do the Happy Hour quilt, so I changed the plan, redid my piles and still have enough for 2 quilts, one queen, the other twin. I put in two hours before calling it a night. I really should have stayed up two more hours, because I just layed in bed wide awake! I think Suzan's insomia is catching.

What are you smoking? You're not in the lead!!

Is the nurture nest similar to the Boppy? I LOVED my Boppy and made a cover for it, but could not get the curve quite right so it was not as flexible as the manufactured covers.

I couldn't have lived without my Boppy when I was nursing (I'm assuming like Regina that's what the nurture nest is). My best friend made some covers for me to cover it with and I loved them.

Sounds like you are doing good at the challenge.I wish I had that much time, but with school I'm going to get 40 hours in July.(That will be a challenge for me)Sounds like you are sewing every spare minute.

You're doing great!!!! I had a Boppy, too, and for a while it served it's purpose. My kids were happier laying on me more than the pillow. It became a "cave" for their stuffed animals later on!
