Boy have I been quiet in bloggy-land this week! Remember about that pleasant dental visit I went to Monday? I was scheduled to have a root canal and then be on my way, but that did not happen. I went in at 9am and came home at 1pm, minus a tooth and with a few stitches. A first for me. And lucky me has an accessory nerve that makes numbing my teeth harder so 5 shots later they got it numb enough to do the work. As of today I’m still very sore and in pain, often using my coldpack on my left cheek many times a day. To make this pathetic story even more exciting, I woke up the next morning with a fever and sore throat. Yup, a nice juicy cold added to the party. Thanking youngest for that one. So between all this hoopla, my sewing plans have come to a crawl.
I am still working on my final project for the Zakka 2.0 sew-along, the embroidery folder. I will attach the binding and post some pictures of it tomorrow. Also on my table is to sew 8 merit badges on my oldest’s sash for Scouts. He was awarded his First Class rank in Boy Scouts so we are SO proud of him!
The best (crafty) part of my week was a nice package from the Fat Quarter Shop. I used the gift card I won from the sew-along to buy some fun, bright fabrics I’ve never used before. The charm pack is from Bonnie & Camille. Love,Love, Love their fabric lines!! The bigger fabric bundle is from FQS Blogger Bundle Series. This set is from Katy Jones of I’m a Ginger Monkey fame. There are 12 prints and 3 solids, mostly Riley Blake. There are a few more bundles to choose from and their is also a Designer Bundle as well. I don’t have immediate plans for them, but they are ironed and folded in my studio looking so pretty!
I hope your week has been more exciting than mine! Check back tomorrow and I’ll share my finished embroidery folder and a few other goodies. Happy Friday! ~Cindy~
