Where’d It Go?

November 5, 2007

I was referring to the weekend, but it made me think of one of my favorite movie quotes: “We went like this, he went like that. I said to Hollywood, where’d he go. Hollywood said, ‘where’d whoooooo gooooooooo.” Any idea what movie it came from?

What a wonderful weekend. After a long week of work, I was ready to relax at home on Friday night. Plus, I had an IDEA that I wanted to work on. I got home and put on my jammies and sat in front of the sewing machine (and the tv). Oh the fun I had. I got up relatively early on Saturday and tinkered with my IDEA for a few minutes, but then I got ready and ran out of the house to run a couple of errands and meet friends for lunch. It was nice to catch up and we were totally girly, shopping for make-up. I had to make it an early afternoon so that I could run up to the Bead Shop in Frederick. Then I went home and got back to work. I had some pouches to make and an IDEA to finish.

coffeecozyI certainly enjoyed my extra hour this weekend. I actually spent it awake. All that awake time paid off as I perfected my new IDEA. It’s a coffee cozy. Bill and I were talking about Christmas presents for our administrative help at work. I am going to make my secretaries some quilted coasters from Last Minute Patchwork & Quilted Gifts. (Thankfully I am planning ahead and the hope is that these will not be last minute.) Bill said he was just going to get them Starbucks gift cards. And it hit me, a handmade coffee cozy. I thought it would be a great present (along with a gift card to the local coffee establishment) for a baby sitter or pet sitter, administrative assistant, coffee lover, etc.

I’ve posted 3 of them in my etsy shop. Now that I have the design and the right thickness, I can make some more. And some that would be male appropriate. I’m really happy with the design, especially how the two ends come together. Bill thinks it looks like a mistake, but I think it adds some interest. I am waiting for my mom to take a look and let me know her opinion.

Believe it or not, I actually had some time to sit down and relax with my knitting and time to clean up my craft room which look like it was in the path of Noel. So that’s how I spent my weekend. Hope you enjoyed your 49 hours too!

Welcome to my spot on the web where I talk about needlework, crafts, and [many] other random things.

A few tidbits about me: I met my husband in college, flirting over tuba letters in the Penn Band. Our dog, CJ, and our cat, Sabrina, round out our family. I'm a sewist, knitter and needlepointer, and an occasional scrapbooker. I love organizing, reading, making jewelry, and hiking. A Chicago girl at heart, I am an avid follower the Cubs, Bears, and Blackhawks.
