The Best Helpers

Don't mind that my Laundry/Sewing room is a bit messy. Here is a great view of me trying to do some quilting. Monkey #3 thought he would come in and help a bit.
What do you do with those quilts that are laying around waiting for binding? You toss them on the floor for the helpers to relax on, and before you know it they are asleep. My little dog Jersey just found this spot and plopped right onto Monkey #3.

I did get something accomplished this time.

Quilt giveaway

Make sure to go to Old Red Barn Co. and sign up to win a cute quilt.


Yes, it is true this last week I left the age of 32.

I have been too busy. I have been working, sewing, and trying to entertain the little circus people. In the midst of all the craziness I did find time to have a birthday. I got some fab gifts.

The Angel in my life gave me these awesome dishtowels. The ones on the right she even made herself. The bottle is full of dish soap. What a cute way to be able to leave it out on the counter.
My children, with the help of my mom of coarse, gave me this book. It is called The Host, by Stephanie Meyer. I can't wait to get into it. My mom gave me a bunch of stuff, including these chocolates. Yum, Yum. She also gave me the windchime that is shown below, and some much needed kitchen supplies from the Pampered Chef. She also brought me fresh cinnamon rolls for breakfast and went shopping with me. She is Great!!! I bought myself the new shoes. I think you should always be able to purchase something for yourself on your B-day.
My Aunt also crocheted these dishrags for me. She knows I love them. And the little wood things are used to hang a quilt up on your wall. The knobs unscrew and then you stick the quilt between the blocks of wood. I will sure be putting these to good use.

So it turned out pretty good, even though my dear Bearded Lady husband purchased a lawn mower and no birthday presents. What is up with men anyway!!!!

I know I am a slacker

If you read Lola Again then you know that she has a friend opening a Quilt shoppe. Well, she is my friend too, and I also have been drawn in by the many bolts of fabric. I have been working hard at making samples for her shop, and at helping her organize. It has been so fun!! While I have been having all this fun my blog has been totally neglected. I will soon have some fun pictures of all the stuff that i have made for her shop.

This week I have heard some interesting things:

Monkey #3 informed me that I had 2 belly buttons and so did he. In his own words. "Mom yous belly buttons are big, mine are wittle" Go figure, I guess its time monkey 3 won't be seeing his mom without her shirt on anymore.

My little niece Pinkie informed her mom some great stuff. In her own words " Mom, Jenny is the best isn't she" of coarse her mom said yes. Then she made the mistake of asking her dad. His reply was " well, that depends" How rude!! I am after all the best. This little neice also thinks I am a princess super model. Once when she went by Victorias Secret she informed her mom that it was "Jenny's store" because of the super model pictures on the front of the store. I know what you are thinking. That I must run around in my laciness. This is not the case. It is just that I am so beautiful! HA HA!

Twinkle Toes has decided that she knows more about driving than I do. While going up the canyon this weekend, I was trying to put my suburban into 4 wheel drive. She was being a very nice backseat driver and telling me how to do this. She also has decided to be the speed limit police. Not funny. Especially since she is only 11.

Well, thats all for now. Hopefully I will have time to get those pictures of the cutest quilt shop ever up soon.
