HUMMMMMMM What to do? What to do?

Hummmmm, what to do, what to do tomorrow? I need to work on my jelly roll quilt along, got behind when in Texas. Want to work on my Texas quilt? Want to do some more drunkard's paths.......have to do up my patterns.....hummmmmm what to do ....what to do?


So.....my husband is going to Hawaii tonight (Sunday), he has a list for me, on that list is Batiks. He asked how much.....???? I bat my eyes and say softly, well........what ever you think. He starts to laugh....(I don't get it...what is he laughing at)

He says...that whenever I bat my eyes and talk in a soft tone, that means to get alot.....

I have one question for you...how did he figure me out? Is he reading my blog? How dare he!!

He says we women are all alike, a few bats of the eyes, sweet smile......and wham.....we have them in our grips. If he knows all of this, why does he fall for it every time? Why?

I can't be that cute...can I? Ha...HA!! I can't wait for him to come home.....
---------------------------------

My son in Japan is sending me some fabrics from the Philipines....I am so excited.....I might need that doggie paper by the door???



The winner of the "Guess how many shells" was Mandy from "Fell 4 U Crafty Stuff"....she was the only one that guessed 78.

OH wow, thanks so much Barb! I'm excited!

& lucky you having your family shop for you all over the world! You must post pics of the fabrics as you get them that is for sure!

Thanks again! I feel very very lucky!

Barb, do a little bit of each one. Allot yourself x amount of hours to work on one project, stop at the alloted time then work on a different one.

"well........what ever you think"

Yeah, like he is going to think that means "bring me home a fat quarter of batik" Not if he wants to be a happy man! Ha ha

You are one wily wife, yes you are.

I am shocked that you don't know what to do or is it you have so many projects swirling around in your head that you don't know which one to do first? I can't wait to see what your husband brings you. It could be very interesting.

Melissa said...

He falls for it because he is a man and men are all just alike, too!

I don't know why eye batting works but I'm sure happy it does. Why is it when they bat their eyes they just look goofy??

Gerry said...

Barb, You're one shameless gal using your eyelashes like that to acquire more fabric . . . however, if it does get you more fabric . . . .
Still laughing,
Gerry

Hi Barb, I found your blog. It's great. I love to read it.
And I love the statue, Rodin isn't it? For me it symbolizes mankind, because we think that's wat we differ from animals.
