Stella and I are turtle sitting for the next door neighbor while she's on vacation. It's been fun watching him swim and sunbathe on his floating rock, and last night I let Stella onto the counter to check him out (normally she is not allowed on the kitchen cabinets). I have caught her staring at him several times from the ground, so I thought I would let her get a better view. Those rocks on the counter are what I have been using for added security on top of the lid just in case she somehow finds her way onto the counter, but it is a little too tall for her to jump onto.
On Sunday I made a couple of drool bibs for my new baby cousin who I get to see this weekend!! One is made from a cute Asian print I have been saving for something special and the other is a purple patchwork I whipped up really quick. I actually made a second out of the Asian print for Ruby Jane, which I hope to give to her this week when Rachel brings her to the office. I really had an assembly line going, a baby bib sweat shop!
My most exciting news is my new thread storage container! (I know...I am a big nerd who gets excited about organization!) I got it on sale at JoAnn's and I am in love! Most of the thread I have in my stash is borrowed (stolen) from my mom, sorry mom! When I do have to purchase thread, I like to work with Gutterman 100% cotton unless there is a specific color they do not have. I am in the process of slowly organizing my studio as the funds permit and I have my eye on some additional containers to store works in progress, but I'm waiting for them to go on sale.
Other weekend fun included going a little shoe crazy at DSW. I went in for the flip flops and came out with the red Michael Kors and the Steve Madden's! I love me some Steve Madden!
I hope your week is off to a good start, mine can only get better as my vacation gets closer!!
