Apple of My Eye....

Hello, Sunday....so where did the weekend go, man? Z and I had the most relaxing day ever yesterday....we both had nothing due, no work to finish up....wonderful! And so we packed up a backpack and grabbed a blanket and headed over to Stanley Park, walked through some trails we'd never been on before...explored a little....and then we ended up at the beach where we settled down for a picnic and drew and read and ate rainbow twizzlers...=) Wonderful day! It hasn't been this nice and sunny here in a long time, so we had to take advantage! I'll share some pictures from the walk tomorrow! =) Then we came home and, since Z hasn't seen the last episode of sex and the city, we had a sixth-season marathon (shh...don't tell anybody I told you!! lol) cuz he's the best hubby ever....=) Soooo love those girls! I love Miranda's wedding, she epitomizes the way I feel about weddings...lol. Anyways, it was a fab relaxing day!

As for some art today, I made this little quilted mini-book the other day using the Dozens' March kit:As much as I love it and would love to keep it for myself, my home is overflowing with these things, so it's up in the Etsy shop. Check it out! I had a piece of batting just waiting to be quilted, so I sandwiched it in between some of the cute apple fabric and patterned paper and stitched away - the title is hand-embroidered, I hand-quilted around the edges and the apple....and embellished the inside pages with buttons and some fabric pieces...the inside of the cover has a, "this book belongs to" label...it's about 4.5 x 6 inches. =) So much fun to make!

Oh, and I totally missed Elle's blog party, but check out all the fun that was had!! I hopped on over there first thing this morning - An interview with Elle herself and guest designer Rachel Denbow...yummy new products!! Such a happenin blog party, man....=) The new etsy goodies are stunning!

Anyways, more goodness to post tommorrow. Hope everyone's having a great weekend! it's nice here again, so when I'm done guzzling coffee we're going for a walk again! =) Happy day!

That quilted book is just too cute for words. Great job, and I totally know about the overflowing of things. It's a problem I think most of us have.
