My First Post...


... of the New Year. Thank you for all your lovely comments on my last post. As always they are so much appreciated.

Hubby and I went out to lunch today. We ate at a lovely seafood restaurant in our capitol, Olympia. It is surprising to me how many people think that Seattle is the capitol of Washington. Even people that live here make that mistake. Anyway, lunch was delicious. Of course because of the bad blogger that I am there is no pic of my lunch as I left the camera in the car. It was to cold and I was to hungry to run back outside to get it. So you will have to take my word for it that my lunch was scrumptious!
I did take this lovely pic of the view from the restaurant. The misty fog seemed to just hang around most of the day today. Our weather is changing though... back to rain tomorrow. That's not so bad though as it gives me more time to sew. I have been making all kinds of new goodies for my little shop. I just have to photograph them and get them listed. I bought the fabric for this little covered note pad thingy today. (Still having a hard time coming up with a name for it... ideas would be appreciated). Sewed it right up shortly after dinner.
I also made a couple of days ago this little insulated lunch tote for my daughter. The inside has a waterproof lining which was very interesting to sew. It has a tendency to stick to the sewing machine so it doesn't glide freely along while sewing. After a few choice words we came to an agreement and it behaved!

Well so far 2011 is starting off rather well. A lovely lunch and some great sewing time.... hope it continues.

Yawn...time for a warm bath before bed.
See you soon.

Happy New Year! Love that harbour shot! I won a cover like that on Nicolette's "Dutch Comfort" blog a couple of years ago. She called it a "note taker".

What do you think of “Dreams keeper” or “Forget me not”? :)
I love it!!! You are surprising me every time, you make so different things... Wonderful!
This small marina is just very lovely! You do live in a marvellous place!

I had a fifth grade teacher who drilled the state capitols into our head - will always remember Olympia is the capitol of Washington!! Love your new projects.

Happy 2011!!! At first I thought maybe you were going to make covers for iPads! The lunch tote sounds perfect. You are already off to a very productive year!

Happy New Year Kathy. Sorry I haven't been by for a while. Past 12 months have been a bit foggy for many reasons. I forgot how much I loved looking at the beatiful photographs you post! So lovely!

I'm so glad that you're back at your sewing machine. I do so enjoy seeing all the items you turn out. Any new little critters in the future?
