I pinned the outside this morning. I started sewing the outside this evening. I was able to attached the front three pieces. I decided to try hiding the raw edges. I have completed the top doing this and have pressed 1 side. I am calling it an evening.

Tonight I cut all the pieces for the Piggy Bag. I posted a picture of the fabric selection on the Sewing Projects page. I am hoping to pin everything up by Friday so I can start sewing Friday night. I did run a bit short on fabric for the lining….however I decided to be creative with the lining and am thinking it will all work out in the end.




After watching my OSHA tutorial I have been sleepy. Trying to fight the urge to nap I made my horseradish hummus and applesauce.

Our Day is what we call our anniversary. This year instead of making set plans we decided to just do.  After breakfast we decided to go to the Botanical Gardens ( No matter how many times one goes here there is always something new to see. We so enjoy looking at all the plants, trees and fish that live here. Nature tends to center the two of us so this was a great start to Our Day.

 Next up was rug shopping…about a month ago a pipe burst in our apartment and we lost out living room rug. Off to see what treasures we could find at Ollies. I LOVE the rug we found. It so goes perfect with our brown couch.

At this point My Love turned to me and asked if I would like to go window shopping at the mall. I figured why not. I am not a big mall person but love to window shop. I have not been to this particular mall in sometime and learned that there was a Pandora store. I do own a Pandora bracelet and looked at it as an opportunity to look at charms. I like that my bracelet each charm has meaning to me so I take my time in purchasing them. I did acquire a new charm…..The World’s A Stage. I chose this particular charm as Life & Marriage are full of ups and downs.

We had an early dinner at Jack Astor’s. We always enjoy the food. So that was a bit of a look into Our Day.

I have been making tweaks to my blog pages. Still learning what is working for me and what isn’t. Just added some pictures from the Botanical Gardens. Guess I should stop procrastinating and finally sit down and complete my OSHA video tutorial that I promised I would complete today. After it is completing I am hoping to make a batch of hummus and do some reading.


Enjoy what today brings you!

We decided one of the things we wanted to do on Our Day is take a trip to the Botanical Gardens. This is My Love outside of the Gardens. Beautiful Windy Day

Our Anniversary Afternoon

Today we headed over to the Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens. Will post more on this tomorrow.
