It's the little things that count

And, are faster to work up! June, if you're reading this, I hope you are happy with the bag I made for you last night. I've run out of bigger pieces of the fabric I used in the first b/w bag, but this one is is just as nice.
I am such a sucker for a well-made tutorial. I wanted to try my hand at making these cute, but very simple, headbands. (I tried posting the link to the tutorial, but kept getting an error. Leave me a comment or email and I'll send you the link to make these little cuties.) I ran into the dollar store yesterday afternoon, just before I had my pedicure, and bought the hair bands to do these. Sometimes a girl just needs a headband to keep things off the face and out of the eyes, ya know?
Especially when it's hot. I made one to wear last night (not in this bunch) and it works well. I got carried away, again, and made several more. I'll pass them out to friends and relatives today.
You might remember a photo album cover I made last week with Kerrington's initial on it. I wasn't really crazy about the embroidered "K" I did, so I fixed up a different one last night. This one is appliqued and the lettering is crudely embroidered by me, by hand. What can I say, it was nearly midnight when I finished! lol
Fine! I'll work on the denim quilt now. Well, when I get home from work. I've put it off long enough. I'm only about two or three nights from finishing it, but I just can't muster up the energy, or strength, to work with it. I'll say it's heavy! Maybe I'll work on the matching pillow...

Time to get ready for work again. I will soon be getting up early to get to Rob and April's before 8 a.m. to take care of baby K. three days a week. Next Monday, I'll take Dad to Lubbock for his wound care checkup then Tuesday and Wednesday will be my first two full days of caring for Kerrington. I can't wait! I hope I'm up to the task. Saturday afternoon I'll go over for a while so I can have my "training session". LOL Just like any other job, I need to know what I'm going to be doing and where everything is so it's imperative that I be shown what's going on. I don't wanna mess things up! Rob and April are doing a great job and I wouldn't want to disrupt K's schedule, unless it's absolutely necessary. Just kidding, April!

Veronica~ I just love the purse, and the headbands but that little photo album cover oh it's so cute. I hope you have fun looking after Kerrington, I watched both of my grandchildren when my daughter went back to work as she didn't trust anyone else when they were so small. I watched Dylan until he was a little over a year old..about 10 hours a day and then Katie till she was about a year for about the same hours a day. I feel that we really bonded in that time and I am praying that you enjoy your special time with Kerrington.
