Muddling Again

I've been doing a little of this

and a little of that.  I was duplicating some cd's this weekend for Mr. Muddling and for a friend, and I just could not (did not) resist making them each a little case for those cd's.  I wouldn't say I did the best job in the world, but it was fun, and it will be functional.  So.  Good.

I've also been playing with some blues.

You know the drill - cut, sew, press, repeat.

So far, so good.  I like it!

Isn't it fun to play around with fabric?  I always have a good time when I do.  You just never know how a thing will turn out until you do it.  Or at least that's the way it is around here!

Lest you think I've spent all weekend in the sewing room, I also got some tomato plants set out in the garden while Mr. Cutie Pie was sharpening our lawn mower blade and another one for a friend.  Ah, I can hardly wait for those nice fresh, homegrown tomatoes.  I planted some seeds out there earlier in the week for lima beans, cucumbers, corn and squash.  We're coming right along.  Oh, and the chickens have shifted into lovely egg production - a dozen today!!!  Whoooopeeeee!

Obviously not everyone here is interested in productive activity.  Jack, Miss Ru's cat thinks work is vastly over-rated.

I hope your weekend is all you want it to be.

Hugs and kisses,

Sounds like you had the perfect weekend Elaine. Playing with fabric (great projects!) and a bit of garden work -- what's not to love?

Hi, I'm on a little vacation but I wanted to stop by and say hi. Sorry about the dent to the car. Ick. My daughter wrecked her car 6 weeks ago and we're still smarting from it. And a deer ran into my husband's car with a dent much like yours to the front fender. Darn stuff. Anyway love your blue quilt. Just had to say hi to you.
