Yay for Friday! Oh Wait. It's Thursday.

I found these vintage fabrics while thrifting a couple weeks ago. The tiny white flowers on that soft yellow print are actually fuzzy. I never know what I'm going to make with the fabric I find. I just see it & snatch it up if I like it. But an idea popped into my head yesterday that the blue fabric needs to be made into another 'Owl Pillow Friend'. I'll find some coordinating fabric to go with it & stitch it up!
I've decided to make some goals for myself. Just little ones. (I've been inspired by hearing my blog friend Laura write about goals & other stuff lately.) I want to accomplish something. And I think it'll be fun to create a small goal, find success in completing it & then brag that "I did it! I did it!". That would be fun! So, next month, I want to learn how to sew a zipper pouch. Yep! That's my goal. I told you it was a little one. I've wanted to learn to make them for a long time.
I'm sure it sounds silly to make THIS a goal. But, I'm not used to setting goals for myself. You see, there will always be the "To-Do's": the "Must-Do's", the "Have-To-Do's", the "Need-To-Do's", the "Gotsta-Do's"......but what about the "Want-To-Do's"?? A lot of times my "want-to-do's" get dumped into the "I'll get around to it someday" bucket. And, if that's the case, then my life will be zipper pouch-less because I never WILL get around to it. I'm a goal-driven gal now. Oooh, this is gonna be fun!


  1. I don't think thats a little goal I think its achieveable, well not for me I couldn't do that lol.
    Oh gorgeous fabrics, I agree I think the blue one will make a lovely mr.twit twoo.
    Hope you are good

  2. Good luck with the goal! I LOVE goals, as you already know. You get such a rush when you achieve it. I promise you are going to get hooked on it.

  3. You go girl! I can't wait to see what you come up with! I know you can do it.

  4. You "goal", girl! ;)

    Oooh, that blue fabric should TOTALLY be an owl friend!
