I'm ashamed to say that it is now almost 10pm, and I have yet to get out of my pajamas today...none of us did (except Steven and Peter). It rained and rained all day long, and despite the fact that I feel like I haven't done anything, I actually accomplished quite a bit. I had been wanting to make some reuseable shopping bags and finally got that done.
I just used t-shirts that would have otherwise been disposed of (not even worth giving to Good Will). Cut off the sleeves, and cut an 8" half-circle out of the neck, stitched the bottom closed, and voila! I would have liked to put more time into them with embelishments and such, but I have too many other projects waiting. I'm happy enough to not have to use the plastic anymore, and very pleased with how much they'll carry.
While I did that, Linus got a hold of my scrap bag. He and Oliver played in it like it was a pile of leaves, and it kept them occupied for quite a while.
I got the pattern and fabric cut out for a pair of overalls I'm making for Linus. If they're nice enough, I'll make some for the store. I have about 10 yards or more of this striped fabric, and joked tonight about making us all pajamas out of it for winter and wearing them for our Christmas picture.
Dinner was homemade ravioli with Italian chicken sausage from Trader Joe's. I used Nasoya wonton wrappers and stuffed them with ricotta, gouda, fresh basil, garlic, salt, pepper and parsley. It was my first attempt, and everyone loved them...even Peter (less the sausage of course).
My business cards arrived...there was a slight delay as the printer is in Miami, and the weather has held up some of the mail. I'll be sending everyone a stack and expect them to give them to everyone they meet!!!
Well, off to shower...finally, and enjoy some quiet time with Steven.
