Yesterday was an exciting and busy day for mail. The fabric I ordered online for a hat I want to make finally came, as did the interfacing I needed for the same project. Thank you kindly to Judy for mailing it to me! I also got a Hase catalogue. I wanted to see more after seeing and reading about Paxye meeting these neat people. I also recieved a sweet smelling package from Heather at Beauty That Moves.
I bought these beautiful cash budget pouches from Heather. I ended up asking for my budgeting categories to be one important expense, Groceries and then three categories for extras, Slush Fund, Fabric and Carrot Cake. The ‘slush fund’ is for random frivolous purchases, ‘fabric’ is obvious and ‘carrot cake’? That’s in honour of the fabulous carrot cake here in Prince Rupert at Cowpaccino’s. I don’t eat it often enough that it needs it’s own cash pouch but I suppose this pouch will be for personal indulgences. It’s not often that I spend money just for me so the money for ‘carrot cake’ will be just that.
I thought I’d share a sneak peak of the hat I’m making with my new fabric. I started it after supper last night and think I should be able to find the time to finish it today. I was inspired by this hat. Lily’s already eyeing the fabric in the hopes of there being enough for a smaller version.
