I won't fault you......I won't hold a grudge if you say....

That girls lights are on but nobody is home!



That girl has a lose bolt!



She is one card short of a full deck...no I won't fault you or have bad feelings...



I know, you are saying, why is this girl going on in such a way.....because of these.....(this is for the Woman's organization Birthday party this Tuesday evening)...yep ...you heard right....tomorrow........is this insanity or what?




I am making 60 of them to make these fridge magnets....I still have to make the cute card with a saying to go in the little magnet for the fridge....what was I thinking?



I am trying to resist making a leaf for each one....so will someone please turn off the lights, return my missing card and tighten that lose bolt...PLEASSSSSSSEEEEEE

Sew Many Ways... said...

Ok...I think each and every one of us has had a bolt loose, especially when it comes to things like this. I've been there, pulling all nighters, to make 50 tissue holders, 45 scarves and eye glass cases. One way to save time would be on the cards you have to make. Type them on the computer and print out all 60 at once. I use business cards that come on a full sheet of paper and then just tear apart. You can also use a text box or if you don't have the business cards in your area, you can use the template for it on microsoft office/word and then just cut it out. I wish I could help you with the sewing, but I know you can do it!!
If you need help with the cards, let me know...I can walk you through the steps.

Those are so cute! If I was your neighbor I would help you make them, they look so fun.

Susan said...

Good grief girl! Didn't you just make 60 fabric baskets for this same event? You are a sucker for punishment aren't you? Oh...I think a leaf or two would be nice and maybe you could clip a cookie recipe to it and bake cookies to fill the baskets! (Just kidding! LOL)

Pat said...

Those flowers are already pretty...they do NOT need leaves...understand??? (Did that help turn off the lights and tighten the loose bolt?? LOL)
