Snazzy, jazzy BP cuff case

Good morning Blogland Neighborhood and TGIF !! Hope all is well in your little corners of the neighborhood ! We here at MBIAJ are slogging along as usual .... unfortunately our MBIAJ Sewing/Quilting Dept has had all of their gazillions of half started, almost started and not quite done projects along with their "next brilliant idea" put on the back burner for what seems like forever due to many factors (one of which is an increased schedule with the day job). So, in an effort to try and indulge our need to see, touch and be near pretty fabric on a daily basis, Headquarters has decided to ......



...pull this pretty little handmade zippered pouch off of the shelf where it was put the last time we went away over night (that was so long ago I can't even remember where we went or what was put in the pretty pouch .... maybe toothpaste, deodorant, emergency chocolate and a comb .....). Anyhow, since traveling happens so rarely around here, but working happens almost daily, it has been decided to give this zippered pouch a new job where it can be seen and appreciated DAILY .....





....it is now the new home for our blood pressure cuff and stethoscope because , really .....






....how can you possibly jam that stuff back in this crappy little black case that comes with it ?!?!?!!!






....see! Everything fits right in there just perfectly AND the zipper even closes EASILY !!!!! Isn't it fun and bright and cheerful ?!?!?! This was actually a handmade gift that was sent to MBIAJ Headquarters by none other than Lisa Boyer a couple of years ago. We here at MBIAJ Headquarters are big fans of Lisa Boyer .... we can SO relate to .....






.....this book she wrote !!!! It has allowed us to let our P.I.S. SHINE !!!!!! Hallelujah !!!! What is P.I.S. you ask ..... well it stands for our Piecing Imperfection Syndrome ! ...and this has led us to adopt some other mottos too..... for example "Lower Your Expectations" and "Mediocre is Fine" and last but not least "Let it Go and Just Sew" !!!!! ..... and it seems this trend is growing ..... the other day while going through some magazines that are headed for the recycling bin, we came across .....





...this hysterical article in the Oct/Nov 2009 Quilter's Home magazine by Megan Dougherty ...and if you like that, you should read her blog .... also FUNNY !!!

Now speaking of visiting blogs .... you should zip on over to our new blogland friend Wendy's blog because she's having a give away to celebrate her 1 year blog-iversary. You better zip on over there quick because I think the give away ends this Sunday .

Be back soon !
Toodles,
Mary Anne (aka Mare)
