Birthday week

During my birthday week I thought I would enjoy making some things for myself. So I made a car trash bag out of some Japanese inspired fabric because I have a Japanese car.
Necklace and earrings to go with an orange polka dot shirt.
Just because I liked these shell things.
Bought these silver hearts a while back with the intention of making these exact earrings.

Birthday week

Instead of begrudging my birthday, I decided to enjoy it this year with a week of pleasures. Today's indulgence was lunch with a birthday coupon up at Rubio's. I enjoyed these salmon chipotle tacos. And my book, of course.

Things I made

Knitted blanket for a little baby boy coming soon. He will be my great-great nephew. Can I be that old?
Felt slippers made from a Simplicity vintage reproduction pattern.
Slippers and blanket as a set.
Necklace for niece, Amanda.

July 4

We had friends over last night and this cheese board was our appetizer. Pam said it looked so nice that she wished she had her camera. So I grabbed mine but Pam stopped me and set up the shot first. Maybe if I had a professional photographer with me all the time I would get some fancier images. Anyhoo, the cheese was delicious. Everyone's favorite was that apricot Stilton front and center.
My little project for the day was setting up my new bistro table with chairs my friend Michaele geve me when she moved. Replaces dried out and disintegrating Mexican leather set. Like the looks of it. Too hot, of course to sit out there.

Some sewing

Sewing as a duty. Needed to make a couple of thank you gifts that I've been putting off. Butcher apron for a guy named Jeff.
Car trash bag for Melissa. Think this will look nifty in her red VW bug convertible.
Set of mother-daughter aprons. Like making aprons.
