Thursday Things

I made two more placemat purses yesterday:
Thank you all so much for your nice comments about these purses.... one will definitely be included in my giveaway. I really enjoy making these, they're a lot of fun to do.

I spent a good part of yesterday (with help from my Mom) organizing our den/craft room and am so pleased with the results. Everything now has a place, and Mr. S. can still use the room without feeling overwhelmed by craft items everywhere! Here are a couple of pics:

I found the green tray in the office supply section at Wal-Mart... it is a great holder for my scissors, tape measure, etc. The green flower cup holds chalk pencils, seam rippers, sewing gauges and other assorted items. I got it (along with the green "S" just for fun!) at Michael's for half price.

The bookcase still has some books and photos in it, but I managed to secure the top of it and the bottom shelf for my plastic bins full of sewing items. I stuck my ironing board between the bookcase and the wall, and used an empty basket to hold all of my odd-shaped items that wouldn't fit in containers. I'm so looking forward to crafting/sewing in here now!

I had my 6 week check up today (has it really been that long since the surgery??) and the doctor gave me a clean bill of health.. yay! I can't believe how much better I feel since having the hysterectomy... wish now I had done it years ago!

I am trying something new for dinner tonite.... the Asian Noodle Salad that Pammy featured on her blog the other day. It looked so delicious I just had to try it... besides, it is too hot to use the stove anyway! I've got oodles of veggies to chop up, so I better get in the kitchen. Hope you have a great rest of your day.


  1. Just lovin' all the bags ... I'm on the look out now for placemats. Your craft room looks inviting, making me think I should get my room in order and pull out my sewing machine (which hasn't been out in eons)!

    Glad that you are all clear on the health side. Isn't it amazing how much better after this!

  2. Great bags!!And its so good you have a craft room, and an organised one.Glad that you are good healthwise.
