April 27th Edition

For Today...
Outside my window... dusk is settling in
I am thinking... that I need to be doing laundry
I am thankful for... for my job
From the kitchen... dishes are done from dinner and a cake mix is sitting on the counter waiting to be made into a birthday for husband
I am wearing... shorts and a T-shirt - just got back from a long walk
I am reading... SewStylish magazine
I am hoping... that I can get caught up on housework this week
I am creating... scrapbook pages - Saturday is National Scrapbooking Day!
I am praying... for safety while my family travels this weekend.
Around the house... things are quiet and calm
One of my favorite things... a bubble bath
A few plans for the rest of the week... work, husband's birthday dinner
Here is a picture thought I am sharing with you...

btrs swap

One of my fav sewing books is Bend the Rules Sewing by Amy Karol so when I stumbled across the btrs swap site,, I was SO HAPPY. The swap was for the Charming Handbag.
The bag I received came from Jennifer at (BTW, she and her twin sister share this blog and they are both SO Creative - give them a visit if you get a chance). She made this awesome bag (which of course, DD has "claimed" as hers). Here is a pic that I took of the package I received:
And a pic or DD with "her" new bag:
She looks happy, doesn't she?

So what did I make? I made this bag:

I sent it to Pam at I hope she likes it.
Hope you have a blessed day.

Pay It Forward gift

I received this adorable pin cushion from Aunt Pitty Pat a week or so ago as my Pay It Forward gift. (Sorry it's taken me so long to post - I have been very very slack in my posting). Isn't he cute?
I guess I need to get working on my gifts...

The Simple Woman's Daybook April 6

FOR TODAY April 6, 2009...

Outside my window...wind and cold setting in. Are they really calling for snow tonight?

I am thinking...that I really should be sewing or cleaning instead of playing online.

I am thankful family.

From the kitchen...leftover fajitas from last night made into nachos tonight.

I am work clothes but I wish I were wearing my flannel pjs.

I am creating...aprons for swaps.

I am work tomorrow but am looking forward to being off on Friday.

I am reading..."Still Alice" by Lisa Genova and flipping through the May issue of Country Living that I received in the mail today.

I am hoping...that it doesn't snow.

I am hearing...footsteps

Around the house...DH and DD just got home from going to the practice at the Masters today.

One of my favorite things...homemade cookies fresh from the oven.

A few plans for the rest of the week: cleaning, taxes, and DD's golf matches.

Here is picture thought I am sharing...from last year's Masters trip...

I found the Simple Women's Daybook here:
Join in the fun.
