i'm back!!!!

It's been a while... I think I am finally over the pneumonia and most of my blood work came back ok. We are still trying to figure out why my thyroid numbers are out of whack..  They have been so steady for the past 7 years...oh well...if it isn't one thing it's another!! 

I finished all the baby clothes for Abbie's birthday..  I would show you, but that will have to wait until after she opens the package on the 11th.  We are having a joint birthday party that evening for Rich (who will turn 60!) and Abbie who will be 4!  BBQ pulled pork, coleslaw, mac and cheese, lemon bars for Rich and Abbie's mom will make her birthday cake... 

I've done some Christmas sewing...



I have become a bit obsessed with these zipper bags (you too can become obsessed by clicking HERE)
and I have made 5 so far.  One has already been filled with packets of Splenda and Sweet-n-low and stuffed into my purse).   They go together so fast.  You could use them for anything... a little sewing kit,  hand embroidery, how about your rotary cutter for retreat?, tea bags, little toys, a deck of cards....really so many ideas...  I already have a couple more cut out and ready to put together...but I'm running out of zippers! lol    Sorry the photos are so dark...It's been raining since noon and it's just dark and damp and dreary here...  :- (

And of course tomorrow is the weekend...and it's not a true weekend unless there is a project in the works...  Tomorrow we tackle one of the back hall way closets..  I forgot to get a before photo...  All the shelves were full and then there was all this empty space in the middle.  We thought we would use the hanging rod, but we don't... So tomorrow there will be full shelves installed..

What cute little pouches. I looked at the link, thinking I might make a couple for our upcoming vacation, but I'm tired and tonight they didn't look easy to me...LOL....maybe if I look again tomorrow, it will appear easy enough for me to make a couple?? I'm glad you are feeling better. Have fun working on the closet this weekend.

Glad to hear you are feeling better. I'm going to follow your example and start making little gifts now instead of scratching my head in December trying to figure out how to have enough time to do that sort of thing!

So glad you're feeling better - yikes! I wonder if the meds are throwing your thyroid numbers off. Love your little pouches. And a closet full of shelves??? In my dreams, lol! Can't wait to see!

Good to hear you are feeling better Nancy. Lovely pouches too, but i don't think I would find them as easy as you. They have zippers!!!!
Hugs, Sharon

Hope you are feeling brighter! Love your batch of zippered pouches - love all the uses you have found for them! Must make some more myself.
