Enjoying the Catch-Up

A quiet weekend was well received by our family this weekend. It started a bit early with some family games. Watching a 4 year old win at Candyland is good for the soul.

Dinner included this Sesame Crusted Pork Loin. It only marinated for about 45 minutes and it was fantastic. I think next time I’d like to try fresh ginger.

You know how I have started sparring in Tae Kwon Do, well, my desire for a fancy bag for my gear lead me to this pattern, and that lead me to a fun new sewing project. I found the perfect quilted fabric at Joanns. It has a bit of an Asian flare. I also found a matching iron on dragon patch to give it a little extra detail. So far, the fabric is cut, the pocket has been added and the zipper in place.

If these projects weren’t enough, I stopped by the local garden center to participate in a terrarium class. I’ve always wanted to try to make one. At my favorite junque store, there was an old lemonade┬ádispenser. Since I wanted this for the dining room, I thought it would be perfect. It is perfect.

I’ll bring you more on my bag and terrarium later, I promise. How was your weekend?
