Random Stuff

Just a couple of quick and varied things to talk about today:

1.  Stitches South 2010:   Any of you guys planning on going this year?  Want to meet up? 
Early bird sign up for classes ends Feb. 1st and a couple are already filled up, especially those that Lily Chen is teaching.  I signed up for one class, Basic Pattern Drafting with Melissa Leapman.  This is the first class that I have ever signed up for at Stitches South and it looks like fun. 

2.  I earned my first two $5 gift cards to Amazon over on Swagbucks just by doing searches on their search engine!  Free money, Woohoo!   If anyone is interested in trying it, scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on the button there.  It really is addictive fun.

3.  The Youngest's official birthday party is tomorrow afternoon and I'm already exhausted from cleaning the house.  I baked the cake at 7:00am this morning and I've got the frosting all colored and  in the fridge firming up.  I've been back and forth to school, to the library and to the grocery store today.   After we finally get the kids in bed I get to vacuum, sweep and mop floors then get started decorating the cake.  The Eldest is ticked off with me because I made him help out by cleaning the bathrooms and picking up the toy room.  He'll get over it.   It could be worse, he could have the rest of the To-Do list to deal with like I do.   :)

Have a Great Weekend!
