Sloppy Saturday

More snow today, big fat fluffy flakes coming down, but it's melting on the roads.  Very pretty!  And warm enough that I enjoyed cleaning it all off my car this morning.  I was wishing I had someone to throw a snowball at to.

I only got 3 hours of sleep last night - my lovely neighbor decided to regale the neighborhood with a concert at 8am this morning, while he cleaned off his car.  [And again at 9:30, and 11:15.]  So I got up, made a pot of coffee, got dressed and headed off to Walmart.




I got a BIG box of crayons.  I've had this pattern hanging around for 2 years - drawings completed, even started stitching it, but decided I wanted to add color.  I think it's time this thing gets off the paper and onto fabric.  I don't know if it will ever become a pattern - there's 9 blocks.  But I'm sure having fun with it.  I'm already stitching this block, yay!


And speaking of having fun, look what a reader has made - my Spring pattern!


I LOVE the red flowers, and am now wishing I'd made mine a different color, so they'd stand out more!  Brilliant!  I love the elegant look to this!

Not much else is new, I'm just waiting for bedtime now - it's almost 7pm and I know I could sleep, but don't really want to be up at 3am.  I'm going to play at my friend Cathy's sewing studio tomorrow...I don't think she'd appreciate me coming at 4am, even with coffee. 


As I close this post, I'd like to ask for prayer for mum.  Her foot [the one she almost lost] is giving her a great deal of pain and making her an angry little elf.  We're not sure what's wrong with it, but she's been breaking down crying with it.  It's probably diabetic nerve pain, which is no joke.  We'd sure appreciate your prayers!

Enjoy what's left of the weekend - see ya soon!

Love,
Allie

That IS a big box of crayons. The little peek at your new pattern is promising! You are so talented. Love Debbie's block! Very pretty. Hope you get a good night's sleep tonight. Hugs for your mom! XO

Terra Hangen said...

I like your crayons and the caddy, and hope your mum's foot heals quickly. Now get some sleep, dear.

Sandy said...

So sorry that your mom's foot is acting up again. My husband has neuropathy in his feet so I do understand your concern. After trying several medications and ointments, the only thing we found to relieve the pain was horse liniment, (Absorbine Veterinary Liniment). We buy his at a feed store. Hope that helps her.
Love, love, love your big box of crayons !! Your patterns are very cute.

Must be the changing season, I am getting less sleep lately, need to readjust my sleep schedule;)
Sorry your mom is in so much pain, prayers that they can find the problem and help her to feel better.

I want that crayon caddy!

My SIL had a difficult time with diabetic nerve pain. I hope you mom is able to find relief soon. It's so difficult to watch a love one suffering.

sorry to read your Mum is troubled with foot pain, she is on my list and will remember her in my prayers. Like you I go to bed early but usually awake around 4am, try and stay in bed till around 5.30 then up and catch up on blogging. A lovely vase of flowers you have apliqued

Lin said...

What an amazing box of crayons! Looking forward to seeing your new design. So sorry about your Mums pain - will of course pray for her. Mothering Sunday in the UK so a special day for Mums everywhere. xx

Shasta Matova said...

That is a huge box of crayons. I look forward to seeing what you do with it. The Spring pattern is lovely and looks great in those colors. I hope your Mom feels better quickly.

Sending prayers for your mum. I know how painful this is, it is an awful disease. Hugs to you and your family!

Margie Crewse said...

Am hoping your mom feels better real soon. I will be following those crayons very close so post lots of pictures please!

BillieBee (billiemick) said...

You are just so creative...love all your designs, but then you know that...grin. I've never seen a crayola container like that. So cool.

We'll definitely pray for your Mom! Mick takes some pills for that kind of pain, but I'm not sure how much it helps.

Gentle hugs for you and your Mom.

Kathy said...

Oh I love those red flowers too!! That would make a cute pillow cover.
Prayers for your mum. So difficult to see one's mother cry and not be able to help.

Águeda said...

I really like the way they face the cold: with color crayons :)
I regret the suffering of his mother. God Bless you and Bless your mother.

Melody said...

Sorry to hear about your mum. Sending her a big hug.

desertskyquilts said...

Prayers for your mom, of course! I hope that is of short duration. That's a nice version of your pattern, but I still like your coloring on it. I'm glad your snow didn't stick, and even happier I didn't get any! I hope you are warming up like we are this week.

Sharon - creativity and family said...

So sorry to hear that your Mum is suffering so, sending her hugs and of course I will try to keep praying for her. x

Carrie P. said...

Love your new header, such pretty patterns. Praying for your mom.

Sandra :) said...

Oh dear - this post is from a couple of days ago - how's she doing - is she getting any relief ... and is she able to do something for the pain, or is a doctor's visit in the works?

IHaveANotion ~ Kelly Jackson said...

You and your Mum are definitely in my prayers. Pain stinks big time.

You sleep sounds like mine....middle life has messed up my sleep for sure.

Hugs,
Kelly

Karen said...

Opening a new box of crayons is a delightful thing. Brings out the child in us.

Ondrea said...

Many angel hugs to your dear mum. Love the pic you are colouring. Good luck with sleep. I only get a couple of hours most nights and it makes one very grumpy gal. My memory is bad too.

Jocelyn Thurston said...

You are so creative Allie, and on only 3 hours of sleep! Perhaps you can nap. I'm not a great sleeper either, and I can't nap. Only wish I could.

Rachaeldaisy said...

Oh your poor mum, I hope the pain clears up soon. Sending lots of get well wishes! Your box of crayons is a box of many future beautiful creations!!

Kaisievic said...

Hi Allie, prayers for your Mum and I hope that you were able to get a good night's sleep.

shez said...

Hi Allie sending prayers to your love,not much fun being in so much pain,hope she feels better soon,sending lots of love her way too xx

Karen Schurr said...

Hi Allie. I'm so far behind in reading, I must apologize (computer problems). You've accomplished so much since I last checked in. Sure hope your mum's foot is better. I'm adding her to my prayer list just in case. Love your new crayon caddie. Sure beats my 64 count box with the sharpener on the side (yeah, I hold onto things far too long, 1979 I think). Hoping the winter weather will soon lose its grip on you. We've had such lovely weather this week, but tonight its going to snow again....getting much colder. I'm ready for this yoyo weather to end, thank you. Stay warm and well, Dear.
