I don't get a lot of sewing done now because my hands hurt too much, but I'm still totally enjoying making little zipper bags. Everybody on my gift list should know that they're getting zipper bags for Christmas, LOL. Here are a few more that I've finished recently - the owl fabric is from Joanns, and the flamingo fabric was a gift from a sweet friend Barb (check out her blog - she makes AMAZING stuff, and always uses such delicious fabric!)

Chris got his very first car today - a 2007 Mazda 6 :) He just now pointed out that if he takes out the car in the middle of the night, we can't give him shit ;) When he was first licensed, we discovered that Chris had, several times, taken our car out at 2:00 a.m. to go on a coffee run with buddies. He was insured on our car, but didn't have our specific permission to take the car out for the middle of the night runs. He learned a valuable lesson when he lost the use of the car for a month - that was a very LONG month for him, lol!
Another new family member - our older son Nick's new "ballin" rims - he just got these put on yesterday, lol. Apparently "ballin" is good!

I'm waiting for permission from hubby's insurance company to go on heavy duty psoriasis medication (injections) - at the moment there isn't a lot I can do because my hands and feet are in bad shape. Today I had a melt-down at the clothesline - I hope nobody was watching - I'm sure I looked ridiculous :D
Here's what's happening in our end of the world - our new car, my new clothesline (Mothers Day gift!), and my cabana project progress (sandwiched and pinned) for Week 8. We told DS2 he couldn't drive the new car so he went out and bought a 2007 Mazada 6 - he takes delivery tomorrow if it's ready - he's BEYOND excited! We only have room for 3 cars in our driveway/garage - we'll have 4 vehicles (hubby's work van, our car, DS1's truck and now DS2's car) so the guys will have to find somewhere on the street for him to park :D Not my problem - the guys can take care of that :D Hard to imagine my baby will be legal drinking age (19 in Ontario) next month - HOLY (*&)(*#@$)$#@(*$# !!!!!

I haven't been doing very well lately so haven't gotten much of anything done. I did manage to get a few little gifts sewn - the two tropical bags and the two fairy bags are for some friends of mine, and the extra fairy bag and the prism owl bag will go in my gift or donation box for "later" :D
Even tho I haven't been very mobile, hubby and I did manage to do a bit of car shopping, and on Saturday our newest family member will be joining us :) I can't find a picture of our exact model and color on the web, but this is close :) It's a 2009 Dodge Challenger SXT (with a sunroof! IMAGINE!). We're trading in the Impala, and have told DS2 he can't drive the new car, so he has to get his own, LOL. So now he's out car shopping as well :)

Well, the last border is added, and all the paper is removed. I hate that job (removing the paper) - the palm trees were really fiddly to depaperize, lol. But the top is now done, and ready for embellishment! I have some fabric to cut out and applique, and I have a few fishy type buttons to sew on, but I'll need a trip to Michaels to get some more goodies. I'm sure hubby can drive me to Newmarket soon to see what I can find :) Quilting and embellishment will be rather minimal - I really just want to get this project done and ready to hang - it's so big (I think the top measures 58" X 66") I'm really not enjoying working on it!
