Almost Over...

How was your weekend?
It's almost over...did you get
everything done that you wanted to?

(Okay, may quit laughing and
pick yourself up off the floor.)

I was actually very productive and
got the three top things on my list done.

I hemmed a pair of jeans for a coworker.  

I made 2 trick or treat bags for a different coworker.
I made them pretty much like I make my tote bags, but without pockets.  The next ones I make (if ever) will not be quilted.  But, this is what she wanted, so this is what she's getting.  I aim to please!  {grin}

I layered and pin-basted the baby quilt
I briefly mentioned back here.

And, I watched 2 movies.
"Blink"  and "The General's Daughter".
I had never seen "Blink"...
starring Madeleine Stowe and Aidan Quinn.
I've seen "The General's Daughter",
but I love John Travolta,
so wanted to see it again.
Madeleine Stowe is in that movie, too.

Now, I am going to sit and do a bit of
stitching to finish up block 9 and 
then relax for the rest of the evening.

Have a good week!

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the LORD, "plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

Looks like you got quite a bit down. I am still working on small things and goofing off;) Your bags are wonderful, that is something i will be trying this year.

Okay now I feel like a total slacker. No, not a single thing did I accomplish. I finished a very stupid book I should have put down the first day I started it. That is about it.
I always enjoy reading about what you did though. It gives me a goal.
To at least finish something.
I am so glad you had a lovely weekend.
No, I have never seen either of those movies. I am watching Chuck. :)

Jacque what cute totes! Your co-workers are going to love them. I was productive this weekend, got all my ironing done and cleaned the coop. Have a great week, Julie.

Oh my gosh!! Are those bags ever cute!! Which gives me an idea!!
I could have a different lunch bag for each season and holiday!!
I am using my mustard colored bag everyday to carry my lunch to work!! We have a fridge, so I don't have to use my thermal lunchbag. When you make my 25 different bags, would you mind puttin gin about a 6" bottom?
Thank you!
