Yesterday we were scheduled to have our final inspection on the construction project, which would give us our C.O. (certificate of occupancy) and allow the homeowners to cash in on their first-home-purchase tax rebate....and we passed!!!! YAY! Definitely an answer to prayer!

So, Bill decided to take a much-needed break and we drove to town for lunch, and also ran some business errands. The temperatures here have been in the high 90s so I was more than happy to clean up my paintbrush and pile into the car to go eat mexican food, even if it meant chasing around town!
This is Uncle Harold (aka 'Jorge') - he's a big 'sweat-er'
All these little details started putting me in a celebratory mood, and it must've made me start feeling like it was a friday. Friday night is pizza nite at our house and so I say to Bill on our way back home...."what time do you want to eat pizza tonight - 6 or 8?" He looks at me strange and wonders out loud why we're doing that a day early....Aw, crud! I thought it was Friday!!...ha ha...I can tell by the way you're laughing at me that's it's happened to you, too, right!!!
Anyway, I wanted to show you what I completed this week to share at amylouwho's Sew and Tell Friday (by the way, here's a big THANK YOU to Amy for hosting this each week and for having wonderful friends who'll step in a pick up the slack while Amy's settling into her new digs - Sew and Tell has really helped me meet new blogging friends and I LOVE browsing thru everyone's little projects!)
Thank you, Amy!
I've been collecting red, white and black fabrics for over a year now, as I wanted to do some sort of project with that trendy combination of colors.
This week, I made this little pinafore and bloomers set to add to my growing collection for sale in the shop
I also used crazymomquilts stacked coins quilt tutorial she posted last year as a guide, although this is made with 4" squares cut in half.

I still have a tub full of scraps leftover and I hate to see them go to waste so I put them up for sale in my Etsy shop - I figure $5 is a pretty good deal, considering all the work I've put into the cutting!
Oh - and don't forget today is the last day to enter my blogiversary giveaway!
Thanks for stopping by and I wish everyone a nice, relaxing weekend!!
