I finished all my Zippy Bags yesterday. I think I must have made 12 or 13. They go fast if you get into assembly line production mode. Half the fun of these little bags is embellishing them with fun buttons. I picked a bunch up at Joann's awhile back when they were on sale, so I had a nice selection.
I started my new David's Tea Advent calendar on Thursday, and is that ever going to be enjoyable all month! Each little drawer has a different tea in it, and each little container makes two cups of tea. My first tea was Snow Day, a blend of peppermint, cocoa beans, chocolate drops, and white chocolate pieces. There is actual tea in there too, and the flavor is very subtle and comforting. Not sweet at all, and the aroma is divine. This has been the loveliest treat for myself.
I took a hot steamy mug up to the sewing room and enjoyed it while I finished the zippy bags.
Thanks for all your comments yesterday about what you eat during the week that is healthy. I had an egg, toast and orange juice for breakfast, a salad with chicken in it for lunch, and dinner was a chicken stir fry with veggies on rice. I felt so good for eating real food all day. And three proper meals! If you need ideas what to eat, be sure to read all the comments, there were some great suggestions.
I had to take a break from sewing bindings. I was at work on Wednesday, doing some filing and my right thumb was killing me at the joint. I thought "Ow, what the heck did I do to my thumb?" And then realized. Oh right. All those hours of hand sewing bindings. I need to get back to it though. I guess I will have to pace myself. No more three and half hour marathons while I watch The Crown or Gilmore Girls!
Have a great weekend everyone.
