First. Remember when I showed this pillow a few days ago. Yup, it is the one that is part of the designer's challenge for Fat Quarterly. Well this was the first time I had ever tried making an envelope pillowcase. Crazy huh!!! It was so super easy. Now I want to start churning out pillows for every seat in the house. (Although the WIP list is a little long so maybe I should hold off on that :)
Second. On Saturday I competed in a Triathlon. Now before you go all "Wow, that is amazing" I should clarify. It was a team triathlon and the sprint distance. My husband has always wanted to do Triathlon's but swims like a rock. I swam in high school (some 15 years ago, mind you :) So when he found this little "fun event" he asked if I would swim so he could be part of it. What could I say.
About 4 laps into it I was dead and wishing I would have said No Way!!!! (unfortunately 4 times in the pool to "practice" before the event was not anywhere near enough to getting me into shape, who would have guessed that?? :) But about 4 hours after I was happy we were able to do it together. My husband absolutely loved it. And now he has hopes for us each competing our own. He just has to learn to swim and I just have to learn to get my tush out of bed in the morning to try to get back into somewhat decent shape :) Wish us luck :)
So what did you try new this week??? Let's see!!!!
