A bit of this and a bit of that.

 These are all straight out of the camera shots. Above is what I am up to with the Tova top. I cut out a Large size just in case the medium might be tight and I tried this on and it's pretty good and not too mumu. I'm yet to find time to finish off the sleeves and collar (which I am a bit scared about).

The placket was a little tricky and I did some homework and read up how it is done. It wasn't too bad even when I used my overlocker on the inside. It can be tricky to get the sharp corners but if you draw in those dots (drillholes she calls them) it helps you to make that turn.

Some days I eat soup for lunch. It's my plan to lose a bit of weight. I've been delaying any kind of baking because I know it'll just sit on my belly and tip the scales a bit more. I'm been thinking about using the treadmill and maybe even going to the gym (Ohhh, shocker). I just don't want to be anymore wobbly come summer time when I'll be wanting to wear dresses everywhere. Do you know what I mean? Anyway, I digress. It's not working yet so maybe I have to eat soup for lunch everyday to see some results.

 I took the kids to the park during the holidays. They thoroughly enjoyed it and had a good sleep that night, he he. Now that the older ones are back at school I can think about scheduling some exercise for myself? Or actually do some exercise!!!

 I visited Hot Dollar (a cheap discount shop) and bought this lovely plastic box. It also fits my phone so I can prop it up there along with some stuff I use at the sewing desk. I would love to visit a place like Howards Storage but some of the stuff there I can't justify spending our money on when I can get it cheaper somewhere else. But I do wish for some cool pretty storage stuff, one day.

Hot Dollar also had these baking paper cups. They're only $2 each!

I couldn't go past those owls.

But the best things I found were in their sewing section. I've been looking for bodkins everywhere and was even going to buy them on-line but I found them at Hot Dollar for just $2.50. I wouldn't have the faintest how to use them but I'll figure it out. We also can never have enough pins.

I hope you had a great break with the kids and are getting back into routine. It's nice to have a bit of time to get back 'me' time which means some 'me and you' time ; )
