Simple Pleasures

This weekend I don't have any plans and I wouldn't have it any other way. This past week has been spent flitting around town from one place to another, and to be honest, I'm just not used to all of the activity! So, now that I have some projects I need/want to do, maybe I'll spend some of my weekend working on these...after sleeping in until at least 9AM on Saturday.


I've had my sewing machine for a little while now and I'm anxious to really put it to good use. This past week, my mom and I stopped at a consignment store that was going out of business and picked up a handful of patterns since they were only twenty cents a pop. Even if I only test out a few things, it's worth it. Eight patterns for less than two bucks! Can't really beat that.


I picked up this pad of watercolor paper on Monday from JoAnn's. I used a 40% off coupon to bring down the cost of the pad, but since I used a gift card to pay, it didn't cost me any "real" money. I have a set of watercolor brushes my parents brought back from their trip to China, so I'm hoping to use these for my creations. It won't be the first time I've used them, but I'm hoping to start using them a little bit more.


This is the yarn that my seester picked out while we were in Carmel. I've only just started knitting her loose knit scarf and the material has proven to be a little trickier to work with than I had originally anticipated. Nonetheless, I'll be powering through it and hoping my fingers don't cramp up and fall off before I've finished it!
