This week I have been working on fabric napkins and designing the piggy bag.. I have decided to try Mug Rugs again. Getting nowhere fast on the latter. Just spent the better part of an hour making the template. I can not figure out what the issue is today. All I know is that I am coming nowhere near it being the perfect hexagon. I just made what I have deemed the final template for the night and am afraid to see if it is indeed correct…this time.

This weekend I am taking a skill building class: Inserting Zippers.  I am looking forward to this. it will be most useful…so I am told. I am hoping to complete a couple more napkins and to start on the Piggy Bag and possible 2 Mug Rugs. 

It has been a rough work week so far. So looking forward to a stress free weekend! Also looking forward to only working 4 days next week. As I took a long weekend in honor of our 19th Anniversary. Shit….trying to figure out where the time has gone. I do not feel that I am old enough to be married for that long. Usually we are low key with the whole celebration thing and gifts. However it just came to light a couple of days ago that in my weight loss I have lost weight in my fingers. Go figure. My wedding band has taken to almost falling off as of late. Looks like there is a new ring in my future. Oh darn now I have to go to the jewelers ….what a shame 🙂

I was flipping through one of my sewing books today looking for my next project. It was around the time I remembered that I have projects in the wings. I need to make a bag using the pig fabric I have for a co worker, I need to make a wrist key strap for a co worker (who happened to be my 1st follower…she has been so patient), a set of 4 fabric napkins for a my mother in law’s birthday package and a table runner for my sister in law. Guess I need to stay away from the sewing books and start sitting in front of my machine  🙂 There is this  coupon organizer that I so want to make as well as a sewing machine cover (already know what fabric I am using….so excited). Hoping to get to these fun projects soon. 

My Love just left to pick up dinner…I decided not to cook so off to get Chinese Food. Thinking I may surprise him and make Pumpkin Cookies tonight. If I do that then I must go now as I am 1/2 done painting my nails. 

Enjoy what the rest of today brings you!
