Not Too Much Goin' On Here...

Well, I see my plans to post more often didn't work out so well. Gosh.  I will try harder.  Promise.  

In 22 days, me Mum and sister will be here.  YAY!  We found them a very nice duplex to move into that's not too far away. Course, here in Canon City, nothing is too far away.  But, you know what I mean...not too close and not too far.  I will keep you updated on this exciting event!

I have not been real busy in the sewing room.  A lot of thinking and deciding and planning and reorganizing, but not much sewing.  I have been spending time reading and playing cards, though. 

In fact, I spent most of yesterday reading.  That's all I did.  Read. Well, I did make a few meals and do the dishes.  But, I gave myself permission to have a full day off.  No thinking or planning or making decisions of any kind.  It was a lovely day.  

I did finish a few things in these last few weeks...

A little zippy pouch with a lanyard (ya know, around the neck instead of a wrist strap) for Princess Kaylynn.  Her birthday is coming up (11 years old...ohmy!) and I am just sending her Christmas gift (the quilt I showed in a previous post).

And, three more earbud cases for sister Joyce to sell.

I worked on a small project, but got nowhere with it.  Loving this fabric, though.

Kind of exciting...a local bakery owner asked if I would make aprons for her little shop.  I made a few (sorry, no photos of them), but decided to not do more.  

So.  That's all I have to show you.  

How about you?  What have you been busy with?    

"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.". Jeremiah 29:11

Wow! 22 days! That's a quick move! It' going to be nice! :-)
Sometimes it's very therapeutic to just sit and "be"... a good book certainly helps the mind to relax and wander a bit!
This blue and brown projects looks like it's going to be a goodie! Have a great week! :-)

Wow Jacque, I had no idea your Mom and sister were moving to there too. How fun for you to be there with your Mom.
I love your projects. I love that fabric too. I think it sounds like you are doing so great being in that new place.

Glad you found a place so they won't have to worry about that. Love your new pieces and the aprons sound fun, didn't like making them? I have a bunch of apron patterns that I won, I don't wear them and not sure who does, lol.
