A nice day is . . .

Waking up, getting everyone off to school then coming back home and getting ready to go meet a sweet friend for lunch. Then enjoying each other's company, sharing thoughts and looking at amazing Japanese sewing books together!

Today I met Karin of Meandering Travels of Mindless Thoughts for lunch and we had the best time! She was one of my Pay-It-Forward volunteers and I was able to hand deliver her goodies today! Plus, she brought these wonderful Japanese sewing books she just bought that were chock full of great projects.

After lunch, we headed over to The Plum Tree for awhile. I had a few things to drop off and of course, I had to do a little shopping too! Karin did some shopping herself (thank you, Karin!) and we were able to visit with Cindy for awhile.

Thank you so much for lunch, Karin ~ it really was such a nice day!


Ellie snoozing this morning on a pillow. She's looking like "uh, do you mind?"

A little cotton batting stocking that I finally finished and took to the store today. This is a project featured in the wonderful book pictured below. It's just my version of it!

Love, love this book! There's even a section towards the end of the book that features Debbie from Curious Sofa and her Christmas decorating ideas!

Drive-thru it is! And then we'll zip up 75 to Smyrna and get our fill of Japanese craft books. Who needs food when such cuteness is to be had? :)

Thank you for reminding me of that book - I bought it in the summer - but You version of the stocking is so much more delightful, you always have a wonderful vision that makes it uniquely yours . Gotta come shop before all the delights you create are gone -- Kathy

Dawn...have I ever mentioned to you that your site is one that I love to come to and ewww, ahhh, and relax with...when I am stressed your site just de-stresses me for some reason...its such an ethereral place to I thank you for're such a talent...I'm sure in more ways than you know....what a blessing for all of us to get to peek into your world.

That Ellie...she's just a "put her in your pocket" kind of girl...she is just packed with too much CUTE!!

All of your things are gorgeous as always...I love this stocking...too late for me to get started on one myself...I am slowly finishing the rag balls you featured...and I am attempting the baby shoe pin cushions for 2 of my gal pals for Christmas...and one for me of course...those are just too cute...I wanted to buy all of yours instead of attempting my own...but there was only one left when I found I am giving it a go...don't know if mine will compare to yours...but I love the idea... to visit your site...and really love that precious Ellie...she's a keeper!!
