Wooden Snake!!!

Well, I finally did it!!! I started wood carving class last night!!! It was a blast! I was the only female in a class full of mostly retired men.  What a hoot!  It was sooo quiet as we all sat working on our snakes. I sat chuckling to myself, that if this were a class full of women you would hear chatter not the scratch, scratch of the knife blade on wood.

 Here's a look at my snake...it may need a little more refining before I paint it, but I'm pretty proud of it.

Questions, questions....

The first blog I found had some questions today, so I thought I'd answer them here too. (Thanks Carol E. @ Giraffe Dreams).

1. What is your absolute best asset?
I think it might be kindness.

2. What is the best thing that happened to you in the past week?
I started babysitting Kylie-a fifteen month old little girl. Her mom is single and is juggling a job and school. I go over to her house and keep Kylie while her mom goes to school. I feel so blest to be able to help.

3. What do you usually ust to mark a place in a book you are reading?
A book mark that my dad gave me many, many years ago. It's yellow with a little girl leaning on a tree on it.

4. How many times do you hit the snooze button in the morning?
Snooze button....I wake up before the alarm!

5. What was the last thing you put a postage stamp on?
A "just because" card to my niece.

What am I thinking?!?!? I've committed myself to making TWO baby quilts by Oct 20!!! I got 2 blocks done on one of them and half of the cutting done. The other one is just a pile of fabric on my studio floor.

Now it's time to battle the homework when our son gets home! He's failing science....all he has to do is get his work done and turned in on time....he just doesn't care. What's a mom to do?
