Happy Sweetest's Day! Duane and I celebrated a day early with a yummy meal at Olive Garden. I had been longing for a good steak and ordered their 8 oz. sirloin. It was breaded with parmesan and herbs before cooking. It was incredible!!! I ate every last bite. lol Tonight we had a Taco Salad meal with the kiddos and shared a bottle of special Raspberry Sparkling juice. The kids were quite excited when the fancy goblets come out.
This afternoon, while Duane was working, I made this cake for him. It looked and smelled delicious. I didn't have a bite though.....gluten....and sugar.....sigh.....I have put myself on a 2 week sugar fast. This is day 5. My sugar-withdraw headache has finally ceased. This is good for my body....but oh so HARD!!!
I've been so incredibly busy with housework and teaching Callie each day that my sewing has been much neglected. Here is a project I sat down and did on Friday. A lady at our church asked me to make a walker bag for a neighbor that had liked the bag that she had(that I had made). I had fun going through fabrics and coming up with something bright and cheerful. This picture keeps rotating....sigh....Anyways, the one side with 2 small pockets and 2 medium pockets. The have a bit of elastic at the top in a casing to keep them from flopping when things are inside.
The other side with one large pocket with elastic at the top. I didn't have any bias tape to match, so I made my own up. That was fun!! Now I think I'd like to get one of those bias tape binders to make the process go a bit faster. Maybe for Christmas.....:)
Thanks for looking! Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend!!!
