Awwwwww. Is this not the sweetest pinnie?

Thank you Michele for this super-fabulous-one-of-a-kind-upcycled-denim-sunshiney-pin-cushion. I absolutely LOVE it! You also get a prize for world's tiniest, most adorable handwriting. You caught me just in time, by next week I might not have been able to read it the way things are going with my close-range vision!

Check out Michele's blog. She's on a roll lately with all things tiny and inspiring. That girl is gonna put me in progressive lenses any day now.

Tomorrow is a retreat day for the VMQG gals and a few other friends who will join us. The day before retreats, I am a multi-tasking fiend. So far I've made (since waking up this morning): spinach lasagne, turkey shepherd's pie, fresh salsa, two salad dressings, Southwest quinoa salad, garlic bread and a delicious latte (for immediate consumption - everything else is for tomorrow). Yesterday was baking day: orange Nanaimo bars (we're close enough to Hallowe'en for those), brownies and butterscotch oat cookies (recipe here, thanks e they are divine!).

No one is going hungry on my watch.

I hope you all have a fabulous weekend. The autumn sun is shining!!

I knew I'd be missing out on sewing and socializing by staying home from tomorrow's retreat, but now I know exactly what delicious food I'm missing too! It's tough, but I'll just have to live vicariously through those of you who are getting together tomorrow. Have a great time!

super cute pinnie! and after reading what we're getting tomorrow, I just might pass on dinner and breakfast! Can't wait to try it all - and I'll have some for you, too Holly!

The pin cushion is adorable and I would totally recommend laser eye surgery over progressives for your oh so very old eyes...NOT!! (old that is - I hold to the recommendation, LES is the bomb)

And I have one little question...Is November 4th close enough to Halloween to qualify for orange nanaimo bars? They sound too yummy!!!
