Monday, Monday

Another Monday rolls around, and a good Monday it is.  My perspective on Mondays sure has changed since I retired, and that's a good thing. 

Not a lot going on, but I did make a little tool caddy for the sewing room.  Over on the HGTV forum, they're having Friday nite pajama party tutorials.  There's lots of virtual chocolate and goodies and beverages to enjoy while learning a project.  Keep You in Stitches was the teacher this time around, and here's my completed project.  Actually this is my second one, I gave the first to Nolene. 

Speaking of Nolene, dear sister had a birthday just the other day.  Let's see if I can find a picture where she's smiling for the camera...ah, yes, I've got one.  This was last summer when Carl was in town for our vacation trip.   Happy birthday again Nolene!

I got the pillow shams finished and mailed off. They're a cream color (think muslin, only it's not muslin) with a dusty rose binding. 

And I've finished altering two of David's Hawaiian t-shirts.  I'll let him check them out and try them on before I do the other three.   I took off the sleeves to take about an inch off of the shoulders, as well as a good inch or so on each side, and a few inches off the bottom.  I'm glad I did these, it's got me thinking about one of my shirts that I need to make some adjustments on.  The trick is to get it done while it's fresh in my mind and not have to re-think how to do it.
Oh, I almost forgot.  I worked another jig saw puzzle, this one was Las Vegas.  It was fun.  I like these with all kinds of things to find in it... it's colorful, and while a challenge, not tedious. You can click on the picture to take a closer look.

Guess that's it for now.   Have a good week!

Looks good!!!

PS I have an x-SIL named Nolene. It is actually her middle name. When she moved away from here, she started going by her first name. Said she didn't know what her Mama was thinking. LOL DM was Jeweldene, sister is Charlene, then there is Nolene. I think it's a good name! But, one of our high school classmates sang "Jolene" to her all the time. That might've done it! ;-)
