My Last Post....


... of the year! Did I worry you all? Tee Hee!
I had intended to blog earlier today but the battery in my camera needed charging... I just hate it when that happens. Well anyway here I am so let's get started. Walking and sewing, two of my favorite things. First the sewing. I have been making a few new things for my little shop. Eyeglass cases and some more pouches. These little pouches are a bit smaller but can be clipped onto a belt loop, which makes them really great. They are very handy if you are out taking a walk and want to take along your cell phone, house keys etc.

I love having a bright colorful eyeglass case. I so enjoyed sewing these that I have made a few of them.
Are you a sock monkey fan? I just love this fabric!How about a fun little turtle pouch. As you can probably tell I am having great time with all this new wonderful fabric.
A special request from my daughter had me making this ID card holder. She has to wear one at work all day and wondered if I could come up with something that also was combined with a small pouch. How lucky was she that I was in a very creative mood. I made her not one but three of them. (Sorry I forgot to take pic's of the other two). It is so much fun when you have an idea in your mind and it actually turns out the way that you see it. Quite often I have a great idea and it turns out really crappy and I have to go back to the drawing board.

Well that's the sewing part now for the walking part. Yesterday was just a spectacular day here in the Pacific Northwest. It was very cold but the sun was shining. So we bundled up and off we went. Hubby's camera was working over time. If you can believe we actually counted 35 Bald Eagles down at the Nisqually Refuge. They were all high up in the trees overlooking the Nisqually River. It was indeed a sight to see. This one flew right over the top of us. I thought hubby was going to fall over backwards taking this pic. All the ducks are starting to return and a whole lot of pairing up is going on. This is an Asian Wigeon. There were several Sea Lions in the river. Just like the Bald Eagles I am sure they were getting their fill of salmon.

Well the sun is shining again so it's time for me to bundle up and head on out.

I hope you all have a wonderful New Year!

See you soon!

It's so nice to have you back. The little cases are lovely, but that turtle fabric is gorgeous. Did you embroider the turtle?

Have a most happy and safe New Year.
