Tonight I am preparing for my Free Sew tomorrow. I decided to make a mug rug after seeing this tutorial: I have made the hexagon template, cut the 18 strips of fabric, cut the hexagon fabric piece and starting gathering the necessary notions.  Looking forward to starting this new project.

I will be stopping for my new addiction: Pumpkin Brewed Coffee from Starbucks prior to arriving at the library that it is held at. It tickles me that I can bring coffee into the library and it is okay. As for the Starbucks….I am apparently in the midst of Good Starbucks Karma. Last Saturday I was credited $10 by Starbucks due to a mix up by the Barista and then on Tuesday a co-worker gave me a $5 gift card. It feels good to be me. I also became aware that they now have a Hazelnut Macchiato.  Now that I am thinking about it maybe I will get an Iced Skinny Upside Down Hazelnut Macchiato as I would hate for my Pumpkin Brewed Coffee to get cold or worse I finish it before the Free Sew ends. Decisons Decisions!!!


Update: I went with the Iced Skinny Upside Down Hazelnut Macchiato. At first I was sad as they made me it a Carmel Macchiato so I had to return to Starbucks…they made the correct drink and gave me a voucher for a free drink. I was not very impressed with the Hazelnut 😦 Oh well at least I can say I tried something new.  Enjoyed the Free Sew today. Will post picture once I have completed it! 

I am falling in love with Fall! I am in total pumpkin mode. I am totally addicted to Pumpkin Brewed Coffee from Starbucks, Last night I went to the opening of Trader Joe’s and purchased: Pumpkin Bar Mix, Pumpkin Pancake & Waffle Mix, Raw Pumpkin seeds (I do not like the roasted and salted ones) and these cute pumpkins!

Road Trip

Fueling Up Before Hitting the Open Road. I discovered Pumpkin Brewed Coffee…think I am in love!


Today I found myself in a plaza that had a Barnes & Noble. My local B&N has a Starbucks! A bonus for me as I  was craving a Skinny Iced Carmel Macchiato!
I found myself on the sewing section and could not resist this book. My Love has already requested I make him the CD pocket.


I can’t say no as I know his current one just broke today. Looks like I will have to go and get double sided fusible interfacing. Oh darn!

A friend recently came back from a trip to Seattle. She went to the 1st Starbucks Store. I was totally jealous!!!Then she presented me with these wonderful gifts from there.
Turns out that both the coffee and tumbler are exclusive to that location!!! Some days it is GREAT to be me!
I am curling up on my couch with my new pillow, a tumbler of coffee (not the coffee pictured) and my Kindle(currently reading Pink is a Four Letter Word!!!
Enjoy the small things in life!
