It has been a crazy week! Yesterday afternoon I had a doctor appointment and I was there for two hours! Geeze! I stopped on my way home at JoAnn's to get some outdoors thread for the new cover I need to make to replace the one the puppy destroyed. I guess right the color! When I got home the samples of the new vinyl fabric for the cover had arrived and the thread color match was spot on. Now I need to order 6 yards of the vinyl.

I took a day of vacation yesterday because my sister and her husband were flying in and stopping for a visit with me on their way to their next destination. I spent the day making homemade pizza and pan banging chocolate chip cookies as well as cleaning house. I made two pizzas to make sure there was enough. I only got a picture of the second pizza after we demolished the first one and part of the second. It was really good. My house still smells like pizza this morning.

Here is my weekly update on my progess on the pastel deer pillow cover. Here is where I was last Tuesday and where I am now.

Friday after work I like to work on this cross stitch piece. It will be a pincushion: a bit big but whatever. I made some good progress while I watched John Wick and part of John Wick 2. Here is where I was and where I am. I just noticed I missed stitching the little flower on the side of the right triangle. Oops! I will have to fix that!

I got the replacement project bags finished. I couldn't mess it up this time since it was an all over print. These are all wrapped and ready to mail.

I am in demand! My to do list just keeps getting longer. I don't mind though; it makes me feel needed. After my sister saw the needlebooks I have been making, she asked me if I could make her a few to match some of the vinyl project bags I had made for her. I can do that! She liked the little pocket for scissors or her traveling cutter. She sent me pictures of some of her bags so I could see if I have matching fabric and the cutter for size.

After work I had to go get my car e-checked. I waited until this week to do it since I am having to take another detour on my way home and the e-check place is not that far out of my way from that detour. Right now I have to take two detours on my way to and from work. It seems like the detours are moving around and this has been going on all summer. Some mornings I really have to think about what route to take to work! Anyway, in case you don't have e-check, it is where you have to get the emissions checked so you can get your license plate sticker; what a waste of time. I have to go every other year. The state runs the operation and they use to charge you over $20.00 to get the test done! I still pay by way of taxes, but at least I don't have to pay again at the test site. Oh, of course my car passed. Not all counties make you do this. What really bugs me is the trucks spewing black exhaust don't get e-checked. How does that make sense? Ok, enough of that.
