Stitch Markers I made for my Coffee Swap pal Nancy

I have been waiting until Nancy got her package to post these. I made them out of clay. Don't they look like real coffee beans? LOL I also made a cup with a bit of brown atthe top to look like coffee. I am going to make a set of these for myself too!


My life is so boring I have not had anything to blog about lately.

I found out this weekend that we have been deserted for Thanksgiving. We usually celebrate at my IL's but overheard at a party this weekend that they are going somewhere else this year, inviting everyone form our usual dinner except us.

So, alas, i will be cooking Thanksgiving for the first time in years. It'll be the first since I married DH. I am ok with this, now that I have had time to get over the initial anger and resentment I felt earlier in the weekend.

The biggest perk of this is that i will have total control over the menu and am going to make it as healthy as I can while still allowing the splurge a holiday i famous for. I am making pies that will count as little points and will make things like my potatoes and squash as close to core as I possible can so I don't blow it too bad.

I went shopping this weekend. I can triumphantly say that I am now a blissful shopper on the "other" side of Fashion Bug. (Big gals on one side, sexy slim gals on the "other".


Happy Monday everyone!
