The dog woke me up at 3:30 am and I couldn't go back to sleep. So I checked the internet and did some sewing.
At 4am I found out that Teddy Kennedy had passed away. I have always liked Senator Kennedy. He was the last of the great Kennedy Dynasty. He served 46 years in Congress and accomplished many great things. He knew that he received the best medical care available because of who he was and the money he had. He was working on the Health Care Reform Committee up until his death. He felt everyone deserved access to good medical care not just those who could afford it. I am not saying the man was a saint. He was a womanizer, alcoholic and liked to party.
Here is my issue, flags will be flown at half mass. This drives me insane. I rarely read the news so I always end up calling my mom to find out why they are at half mass. When Regan died and they were down for 30 days it drove me crazy. Now for you trying to figure out my issue with this here it is something is wrong when the flag is at half mass. The world is NOT okay when you go to Mc Donald's and the flag is at half mass.
Since I was up at 4am and couldn't sleep I made another Christmas present. I am trying to get groups of people done, you know like this family, that social group, my parents, ect. I have a grouping of 5 that need to be done, as of this morning only one left in the group to make a gift for. It helps they are all getting the same thing.
I also realized about 5am Nu Bebe will be here in 5 weeks and I haven't started sewing for her. Today I need to make the list of stuff to make for her. It will be longer than I want. The reason I am sharing this I am going to have to put the Stars and Stripe quilt on the back burner for awhile again. I know I called some of you out to finish projects with me. I am just shifting projects. I will post my list of Nu Bebe projects tomorrow and the new goal number of what will be finished for Labor Day. I am also thinking of posting tutorials of some of the things I make over at my Stash & Scrap Elimination Blog.
