Saturday Sewing

Good Morning!

Today I am going to go to my daughter's house to babysit my grandbaby for the very first time!!! He is 2 months old and they have not had a babysitter until now. They plan to go to a matinee movie and a little shopping. It's a little over an hour away, so I am leaving around 9:00 A.M.

I still have sewing on my mind, so I am taking with me the tea towel pattern kit and quilt pattern that Elizabeth sent to me a couple of weeks ago. If the baby is sleeping I plan to study the instructions to see what supplies I will need. I especially want to get started on the tea towels because I would love to have some handwork to work on when the opportunity presents itself, such as when babysitting grandbaby or watching tv, etc.

I am also going to make a cloth wallet to match the new pocketbook I made last weekend. Penny of Little PenPen alerted me to this pattern and it looks so easy. The only thing I don't have on hand is the little snap. I do have velcro. If I don't get to a craft store, I might try that!
I'm also dying to make another pocketbook.

I have also been asked to make another set of placemats, napkins and coasters with a natural theme with deer, etc. and found this fabric. I have already pre-washed it and just need to get started on it!

Before I leave this morning, I plan to vacuum, wipe down and swish the bathrooms, vacuum the kitchen/laundry room with my little yellow vac and damp mop. That'll hold the house cleaning for now! I'm also washing and drying clothes. Its too wet here this morning to hang any clothes!!!

I hope your Saturday is as great as mine is shaping up to be!

I'll update you later on my first babysitting experience with grandbaby and any sewing I'm able to get done.

Wow, you have big and wonderful plans for today. I'll bet you didn't get any sewing done, if you are anything like me, I would have held the baby the entire time! Love the deer fabric!
