Paint, Pets, and Big Ideas!

What did you do for Presidents day?
We painted the Basement. Yeah……it was already painted,
but we couldn’t get over the “Our basement was flooded with gallons of CRAP”,
so we decided to paint it all before we get our new carpet.
I’ll show pictures of the Beautiful New Basement
after the carpet comes.
We used to have a tank full of these cute little Zebra fish, 15 or so.
Every day one or two would be missing, or floating upside down.
Then we started finding them dead…..with chunks missing…ew!

After two weeks we were down to 1 little Zebra.
He’s been living alone for several months now.
poor fishy. We’ve always suspected he was a murderer.
Last night, my nephew called to see if we wanted his 3 fish: 2 large suckers,
and one African Cichlid.

This morning
we woke to 1/2 of a Zebra fish, and a Cichlid with a guilty look on his face!!!


NOW for the BIG IDEA!!!
I was thinking about having a “Mystery Purse Sew Along”!!
I have one of my patterns that I think would be fun to sew as a group,
then maybe post the pics on Flickr,
Maybe even have a give-away connected with it?
What do you think??
Anyone interested??

  1. I am “sew” interested! (Sorry, I couldn’t resist!) What is a sew-along? Is it like a swap? What kind of giveaway would you do? Just give me the details, and I’m in!


  2. I would be interested if it was an international sew-along, even though I don’t know what a sew-along involes but anything to do with sewing is going to be fun.Hope you get enough interest.Joanne xx


  3. Tropical fish are vicious little blighters – my parents used to have a tank and they were just the same. Makes me glad to be human. I think.Sew-along sounds like fun 🙂xMx


  4. I would love to be counted in on this. I had the cutest lady at a cute material store in Salem Utah help me make the cutest bag so I’m in . Let me know the details.JJ


  5. Hey, I would love to be part of a sew a long. And I still need to come visit your store. I am going to be down that way later this week. I am curious what a sew along is and what it does… but count me in!


  6. Oooo. . .I might even forego sleep for real to try this. Hmmm. . You have me intrigued. We had a killer angel fish when I was younger. . .it even attacked us when we tried to clean the tank! It went for a swim with the poopies eventually. . good-gye cruel world! (it was like capital punishment for fish. . .nasty thing ate a family of guppies!)


  7. I’m all for the purse sew-athon. By the way, I totally know what it’s like to have a fish as a murderer. I wrote a story about it on my blog, not too long ago. Jealous fish!
