A project and a story

I printed some pictures to scrapbook, but my table is full of fabric and a serger. So, I did a sewing project instead. I made a little pacifier holder out of the green polka dot fabric and a muslin liner. Here is a shot of it in the making.

And a story I want to remember... Dan gave me my birthday presents early this last Sunday (bicycle pants, bike rack and a pannier bag - which I'm so excited about, they all will be great). After that I went to get a popsicle out of the freezer and I saw a present wrapped with Christmas paper in there! I was so excited, but didn't even touch it. I did tell Dan I saw a Christmas present in the freezer and asked if I had to wait till Christmas to open it. We then went to dinner (at his parent's house) and came back and he said I could open my present. I took it out of the freezer and there wasn't even paper all the way around it, so I could have figured out what it was before! He must have used a scrap of paper. The present was a box of soy chocolate ice cream bars from Trader Joes. Which is neat for me, since I haven't been to one yet. The closest Trader Joes around is about 20 mins away. They opened earlier this year, but I haven't been yet. I have told Dan I want to go, but we just haven't had the time yet. So it's cute that he went there and got me something from there. I totally should have gotten a picture of the Christmas present in the freezer, but didn't think of it till the next day.
