Monday Makers #27 :)

I didn't get a chance to post to last week's Monday Makers - I was working on a project for a neighbour and haven't had much blogging time.  I'm mostly caught up on reading, but haven't been able to comment like I normally do.  I hate getting behind! 

I did get a birthday gift done in time to deliver yesterday :)  I bought the TMNT fabric last year at the Ogdensburg, NY Joanns.  The set includes an earbud pouch with $$ tucked inside, a zippered pouch for books etc., turtle stickers (wasn't able to find TMNT stickers) and a set of bark coloured pencils :)  Happy 7th birthday tomorrow, Matteo :)

Today I started a new little project in time for Monday Makers #27 - it's a zipper pouch that has a bit of embellishing on it - I had enough of the fabrics to cut out 2, so both will likely go to Blue Hills :)  This will count as a new-to-me project (hi, Pam!) and as an unofficial non-entry to the
Sew Your Library linky party :D  I already participate in several linky parties so I just follow along some other ones and don't actually post to them.  There isn't enough time to do them all, and I'm not one of those people that can take on dozens of challenges and remain unstressed and sane :D

I went out with my friend Nancy this morning to Aquafitness.  While we were sitting in her car waiting for the ice on the windshield to defrost, we noticed the temperature was -33C with the windchill.  That's a bit nippy - hopefully it warms up soon!

ETA:  I just realized something - according to Nurdan's MM guidelines, my Monday aquafitness class counts as a Monday Maker as it's something that I do on Monday that makes me move and be active and creative (I'm very creative at getting out of some of the harder stretches, LOL) :D  Gotta tell Nancy that she's been participating as well ;)


  1. Matteo is bound to love the TMNT set. I love how you theme your presents. I really must try to do more of this. Looking forward to seeing the new to you zipper pouch. I have to admit that sometimes when I get behind on commenting, I just mark them all as read and move on.

  2. Matteo will love it!!! You are just so good at this, Sandra. I was wondering if you were hibernating, lol.....glad to know you're still getting some pool time. Although, BRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR.....wouldn't catch me going, lol, it's all I can do to get in the shower!

  3. I'm sure Matteo will love all the gifts. I'm betting that the little earbud pouch will be a big hit. It's just the right size for a special little treasure which boys always have in abundance.

  4. Just dropping in to say hello. You sure are busy bee with so many wonderful projects in the making and so many finished. Tell ya what girl, there is no way I would venture out in those cold temps. I was miserable doing chores in 40 degree weather yesterday!

  5. Matteo is going to go crazy for these! You are a wonderful auntie! Have fun with the aqua antics, sounds like a lot of fun!
    Hugs, Mickie

  6. You are a busy bee aren't you :) In temps that cold, I'd just stay home and call it a day. YOu are brave girl!

  7. Cute pouches! I just recently was waiting in line to pick up some food to bring home and there was a little guy wearing a TMNT's stocking hat.

    I didn't realize that I'd gotten quite so behind on my reading… I see that I have 6 posts of yours to read :)
