Where did the week go ?!?!?

SHEESH!!! Seems like it was just yesterday that I was telling you all about my crazy weekend, and here it is Friday again!!! (not that that's a BAD thing!! DEFINATELY NOT! .... it's just that it was such a CRAZY week, I can't believe I didn't get a chance to blab here in Blogland since Monday ..... did ya miss me??? )

Well, anyhow, let me fill you in on all the happenings here at MBIAJ over the past few days (well, maybe not ALL the happenings .... I don't want you to be bored ...)

First of all, we celebrated a birthday ..... well, actually two birthdays .....this past Monday was Sam and Shadow's 7th birthday ..... That's Sam in the first picture enjoying his birthday dinner of Fancy Feast in a fancy dish ....

... and that's Shadow in the second picture playing with his birthday present ...






.....and here's one of the guests ....
....(the camera sniffer , Daisy)










......and here's one of the party crashers.....

..... yes, Kitty showed up wearing a birthday party hat .....




....anyhow, besides Fancy Feast, Kitty treats and kitty toys, there also was a little dancing ....

(oops! sorry for the BLURRRRRY picture ..... the MBIAJ Photography Dept hasn't mastered action shots yet...)


OK, on to other news ... I am the LUCKY WINNER of that Dandy Dandelion Gal's VERY CUTE apron give away!!! THANK YOU Dandy Dandelion Gal !!!!

......and, while we're on the subject of aprons, I'm STILL trying to finish the one I started a week ago (it's not that it's a complicated project, just coming along at a SNAILS pace due to 6 gazillion interruptions and a very busy work week .....) Anyhow, here are some pictures of a bunch of pieces of fabric TRYING desperately to shape up into an apron!!!


.....and (still) speaking of aprons, I decided to join the Apronista Network !!! (see my little member badge over there on the sidebar underneath the music playing thing ) .... I haven't had a chance to put pictures of my aprons on there yet .... hopefully later today .... or later this century the way this week has been going!

OK, and last on my catch up post today, here is a VERY overdue list of 7 Random Facts about me (I was tagged a couple of weeks ago, at least, by that Dandy Dandelion Quilts Gal) Hmmmm.... let's see.... (I've done this list once or twice before, so I'll try to think of something new ..... but it might be difficult since I'm so normal and there's just nothing weird about me ..... HA !!)

1) I always put my socks and shoes on left sock, right sock, left shoe, right shoe .... never left sock, left shoe, right sock, right shoe .... don't know why .... but doing it any other way I think would completely throw my entire day off.

2) I can eat an entire can of black olives while I'm making the rest of the salad .... OOPS! ALL GONE !

3) I always begin brushing my teeth on my left bottom teeth ....again, don't know why, but any other sequence might screw up my day.

4) I served hors d'oeuvres to Cary Grant !!

Hmmmmmm......can't think of anything else right now, so for #'5,6,& 7, here's a look at my original list ..... and it's a real doosey!

Well, time to try and sneak in a little sewing time on that apron before it gets dry rot!!

Toodles,
Mary Anne (aka Mare)

Quiet Fawn,
I am loving that cherry apron. I think my quilt store had that fabric, perhaps I will have to get some. Very cheery cherry. I loved the camp stories, btw. There was a YMCA camp right next door to my folk's property and I have many fond memories of going to camp. Looks like all your cats had a fun party. :)

Love the apron! I have no clue about how I put my shoes and socks on-but I do start with my bottom teeth too!

BTW... looked at the close-up shot of your pattern cutting pic, and your handwriting looks suspiciously like mine. So I'm thinking, I must have entered some bizzaro world dimension... and that I'm actually the one making that apron.
