My Date Night Bonus...(not what you might think)

One of our favorite ~Date Nights~ is going out for Sushi...and then off to Border's for coffee and browsing.
We grab a few of our favorite magazines and books... find a table at the cafe to call home for the next hour or two... and then sit, chat, share, laugh, people watch and sip coffee!  It's fun!

This past Saturday all of their calendars were on sale for $4.00...and look at the one I found. 
It was the last one too!

There is a complete sewing project for every three days...complete with color photos, patterns and instructions!

The projects are really great too...they are up-to-date, quick, fun, doable crafts! 


 
 I look forward to sharing some of them with you in the future!

Hi Carrie, what a fun time for sure. Now you'll have to show us when you make something. Guess if I had a date night I'd try the borders thing too, but no raw stuff for me (O:
Enjoy yours!
