Bagette Marianne Vintage Upcycle

A cute little project from Bagette Marianne. Glad she could use the fabric! Teresa

Teresa remember that floral stretch fabric you couldn't use that Bagette Barbara
and I halved. I was going to use it as a tablecloth. But I decided to
recover this ugly old cheap ottoman we had junking the place up. Boy is
it bright now, not like it's old dull brown! And of course I love it all
the more because it's vintage fabric and therefore 1 of a kind :)

Grace + Luck

I feel so much these days. Through the haze of meds. It is impossible for me to do anything quickly as the haze leads to a molasses type slog. It's ok. I feel in the midst of a "slow movement" of my own.

Thankful for all that I have and enjoying the slow.

A few thoughts:

+The people surrounding me


A lovely, lovely slow day to you all. Hugs from here. Teresa

All the best !!

Photo Finish Friday

Photo taken by my sister on Wednesday before a lunch date. 10+ days out from surgery and I'm doing well! I'm a bit loopy on the anti-seizure meds, but I'll take that over the headaches any day. I even managed to do some sewing this afternoon!
Love these.

Your smile.


Craving pie, especially this.

I'd love to go to all of these.

Great idea!

What are you up to this weekend? My wonderful older sister leaves tomorrow. Sigh. She has been taking great care of all of us. My younger sister arrives on Sunday though. Gotta love sisters! I'll be resting, relaxing, napping and eating, you?? Hugs to all of you out there. Teresa

He really use it,  In Bariloche, the plastics bags are just forbiden, and people use fabrics bags, but not enough, too much people use paper bags yet.
All of our green bags are in use... we love them, and I usually sew a lot of them, and give to my friends. 
Kiss and hugs,
