Busy, busy, busy!

Good Morning Everyone! Today is going to be a very busy day for me but I wanted to take the time quickly this morning to post a pic of my ongoing paisley project. We finally had some decent light yesterday afternoon so I quickly took a snap of it. Thats about all I got done on that project. I simply had to not work on it at all yesterday as my hands were screaming at me.

I did get started on my little shoe project. I sketched out an approximate pattern and then sewed a mock up from the pieces. Yes the side part of the shoe was too long and I ended up eliminating the top piece altogether but in the end I finally had a working pattern. This little side project has been a lot of fun and it is giving my hands a needed break from holding so much material like the other project.

I will try to get some more pics of the shoes today IF I get home in time and IF there is good light. We are off to go to a little market for some Christmas browsing, then onto the optician to FINALLY order my new glasses. I am so excited about this. I havent been able to see well since I came to France and it just took forever to get my insurance and everything in order. Then when it was all together it took forever again to get into an ophthamologist to get my eyes checked and receive my prescriptioin. They dont do that at the eyeglass centers here you have to go to a seperate doctor to receive it. After we pick out my eyeglasses we are stopping at the grocery to pick up needed items then home again to make Chicken Chimichangas! I promised my hubby this special treat this weekend . It is a special treat as it takes me a long time to complete it. I have to make the refried beans, the salsa, the mexican rice, the guacomole and the chicken filling all from scratch. Then we assemble them all and deep fry them for a wonderful awesome mexican treat. This is one of my favorite mexican foods and it took me a lot of trial and error to finally be able to make it just like my favorite restaurant back home.
I hope you all have a wonderful day, I am off to get ready for mine ^_^
