Last Week...

Last week, we had no land-line phone or internet connection... it was only 5 days, but felt so much longer!
Oh, what's a girl to do?
Put away clean washing, read, work some extra hours, evict dust-bunnies from under the sofas, bake, go for coffee with a friend, & do some sewing of course, in between all the usual stuff. The weeks of high temps here have been somewhat of a challenge & by week's end I couldn't get inspired about much at all.

Most of the sewing is secret business, however I did finally get my act together & make these decorations for 1 Xmas Item A Month. They are also going on my Christmas Through The Year makes, as they are being put away for gifts.

Saturday evening was spent cutting & preparing some lovely fabrics for this week's sewing, some of which will end up in my Birthday-Love Stash.
Now to just put away the grocery shopping, and then start the sewing, while keeping an eye on The Oscars.
In a few days, I am celebrating a milestone... can you figure out what it might be?!
