I got to sleep in this morning next to my man-friend after much pouting on my part last night for the alarm not to be set... suffice it to say I won and happily got to lay in bed till our tummy grumbles could no longer be pacified.
There is something to be said about living in a walkable community where your favorite coffee shops are just a mere skip down the lane and your favorite breakfast joint is just a nice 10 minute walk down the bustling Sunday morning street. I love Commercial Drive! Everything about it from its Cheers like quality of recognition, to its abundance of culture and spirit.
Afterwards we wandered slowly back down the street, linking arms, buying gourmet chocolates and taking photos..
Whats exactly is coming soon?
Plants trying to escape apartment?
Is the phone to God really located in a cafe bathroom?
After coming home and decompressing for a bit, I headed out to my favorite coffee shop conveniently located a block away from me, for some crafting and reading times...
Here's the book I am reading right now for book club, called "Little Bee" by Chris Cleave. The inside cover tells me not to tell anyone what it is about but I will tell you this... even just being 40 pages in, I am glued and I love how the content matter of the story is serious but it is told in such a comical fashion, that it is both heart wrenching and light at the same time.
- felt cut into 4 x 4 squares
- complimentary fabric squares cut 3.5 x 3.5
- needle and thread
- safety pins (preferably on the smaller side of medium)
- larger buttons of your choice
- fabric scissors
The final step is to sew on your button!
You have a beautiful pin wheel brooch,
that makes perfect pen pal presents,
and that you are going to want to fasten safely to
all your favorite winter coats!
But be prepared to get many
compliments from crafty connoisseurs!
Hope you all have a wonderful sleep into your Mondays!
