A week has gone by....

.... and I have been very busy! A little sewing, a lot of house/kids related stuff....

The one you do not want to hear about is the cleaning, clearing, shopping side of things...

The one you do is the sewing and this week I have finished the No-no bands I promised to make for Greta for her charity, the hospital treating children with cleft palates. I have no photos as my SD card is full and I haven't figured out yet how to get them out of Picasa once in there, despite Dolores' best efforts (thanks so much Dee!!). I will get there eventually... Picasa 'Help' did not work..

The no-no bands have a dinosaurtheme and I have also finished the babyball I promised Greta in the pink she wanted. No photos there either of course which is maybe just as well so to leave Greta in a bit of suspense. I will wrap and send it soon!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. We finally have some sunshine here and I hope you all have some too! have a great time.

Pleased to hear you are getting on top of all your projects, but what is a 'no-no band'? I'm sure I will realise how ridiculous that question is once I see the photos...
Have a great weekend too!

No-no band? We are having some wonderful Spring weather at the moment -- this is Colorado so it won't last yet, but it sure is nice while it's here!

No-no bands are little fabric "casts" to keep little kids from touching their mouths after cleft-pallet surgery. I have some cut out, too and need to get to them ASAP.

You're so busy, Marg! I'm glad to hear it, it must mean you're feeling well, yes?

Thanks for helping me out with the bands Marg!

But leaving me in suspense. Come on now I thought we were friends :) I'm not very good with surprises.

Thanks for explaining Susan, I hadn't been on my blog as I was sleeping :-)

Feeling a little better but still struggling with tummy ache and tiredness.. However, a lot better than last month so holding on to that thought.. Just want to do all the things I promised so on a big drive to get them all done...

Greta, I am NOT teasing you. I have a problem with my Picasa. I can get photos in, but not out to blog, so I am bloggin from my sd card. That is full now so I cannot take photos. As soon as I am sure I won't need the photos on my sd card for a while, I will load them on the computer and empty my card and there will be photos again. (or when I finally figure out what I am doing wrong in Picasa...)
