I have been a busy lady today. Had my hair trimmed, stopped and picked up donuts for breakfast (these are sooo worth the calories), went to the tea shop, stopped at the hobby store with My Love ( he is hugely into RC Cars) and finally stopped and picked up apples.
It is rather grey outside today so I decided to make a pork roast and applesauce. My Love will make his famous twice baked potatoes too. One of my happiest times is even we make a meal together.
BTW:  My Love is very happy with his blanket…which makes me smile!!!
Hope your making the most of this day!

While at Hobby Lobby this weekend I picked up 2 yards of this fleece. My Love had requested a blanket. Easy. Sure. I got this.
This is now day 2 of the blanket project.
Let’s recap
Day 1: upper thread brakes twice, lower thread brakes once, stitching gets wonky, wonky stitches removed, stitches go wonky (again), stitches removed (again).
Day 2: rethreading machine, start with new needle, realize the problem is the selected stitch, change stitches (I will fix it so no one will tell), realize I can not hide the stitches and be happy with how it looks, cut off all sewing that took place thus far. So now I have slightly under 2 yards of fabric and will start again tomorrow.
Despite all this I am enjoying myself.

So I had decided that every day in the month of March I would take a picture. It was 3.4.14 when I realized I had yet to do this. So I decided I would start today….well yesterday I was at a baby shower and soon learned there was no juice left in my camera batteries. Figures right…lol Guess this endeavor needs to wait a bit longer. Although I did take a picture of a mini pine tree I planted in 2012…I put it on my instagram.
Today I finally made progress on the Jean alterations for My Love….now if he would stop working on his hobby for a few moments to try on the jeans they may actually be completed today.  It is not the best alterations but I am pretty proud seeing I have no clue what I am doing and just went with it. As My Love says “So what…they are only for work. I give you credit for even attempting to fix them”. Awww isn’t he sweet.
Next up: A cute little purse for me and a blanket for him!!!
