Lately I’ve been having trouble finding balance in my weekends. (I guess the same holds true for everything else in my life too.) Usually a particular project or obsession takes hold and crowds everything out. I exit my weekend feeling a bit cheated and more stuff gets pushed down on the to-do list. This weekend, however, I finally managed to squeeze a little bit of everything good in. I love it when that happens.
Big weekend baking project, check. (The cinnamon raisin variation of the Reinhart bagels I made a few weeks ago.) Also resulted in delicious, relaxing weekend breakfast. (The bagels were for Sunday morning. Saturday morning, I made these waffles again.)
Weekend sewing, check. I made the Everything In One Place Zip Pouch from Modern Log Cabin Quilting. Projects like this make me extremely glad that I save up every last bit of cherished fabric scraps. Looking at this makes me really happy.
I also found time to sew a dress I started cutting out weeks ago (this is deserving of its own separate post though), watch The Social Network and some college basketball, and go spice hunting out in the ‘burbs (my quarterly trip to Penzeys).
I did not, however, do my taxes. I suppose you gotta leave something on the to-do list, right? 🙂
