It's going to be a sew-sew day

Seeing as how the house is clean (we're not even going to think about the telarañas) and I just finished with Spanish and because the hubby is off fixing pipes at Sta. Rosa, I have the WHOLE AFTERNOON to do whatever I want.

And what I want is to do a little baking (so the hubby has something nice to enjoy when he returns) and a lot of sewing. I'd like to finish the shopping bag I started last weekend, and make a clothespin bag -- to replace the gallon size zip lock I've been using for nine months. That zip lock is a mighty durable piece of plastic but it is showing some signs of wear ☺ Plus I have a lovely piece of green fabric that just needs hemmed and then I can use it as a tablecloth in the dining room.

As I sew I plan to think through the tag from Mari and try to formulate my response. She was so creative with hers!

If inspiration hits, I'll be back later today. If not, I may not leave the sewing room except to come out for food. Hasta luego!

Hi Kim,

I just wanted to say thanks for dropping by my blog! I'm so glad you've enjoyed it. The entries on my father and father-in-law were really meaningful for me to write so I like that they touched you.

Oh, and the miniatures are easy. Seriously. (Why does no one ever believe me?) I never use a pin and I never match seams. How cool is that?

Cheers -- Terrie

A day of baking and sewing sounds like paradise to me! I'd take that over a beach any day! ENJOY!

Couldn't find your email address, so I am responding as another comment. We have been in Guatemala since Dec. 2006. We were in full-time youth ministry for 7 years prior to that in our home State of Mississippi. We knew NO Spanish when we arrived and studied for 6 months. We work with a Mayan Indigenous people group that speak their own Mayan language so we have been studying that for the past year. Learning two languages in two years has been a GREAT challenge!!! We LOVE our work and where we are. I look forward to keeping in touch with you. Blessings!
