Pieces are ready for assembly.

I have my pieces cut for the zippered pouch.  The finished size of the pouch should hold a paperback book in theory.  I tend to stick a book in my purse for when I have a spare moment, and the pages can get bent when not protected.  The embroidery design for "Kimberlee" is from Heart Strings Embroidery a great site that has over 6,000 names digitized in three fonts.

Hint: Use spray temporary adhesive when stitching a design on a piece of fabric smaller than your entire hoop.  As a personal preference I always add pins outside my design area to ensure the fabric is secure to the stabilizer.  If using pins make sure to check the area your design will cover prior to starting your machine.   Here is another look at the hooped fabric prior to stitching out the design.
To make the zippered pouch have more body I am adding a layer of felt between the outside and lining fabrics.  I am planning on doing some decorative stitches and the felt layer will help to stabilize the light cottons I am using.

Seeing so many different ways to use tabs on the top, sides, and bottoms of their planner has given me ideas. And when you find one way doesn't work great, switch the location until you do find the perfect location for the way you use them. 

After this layout, I moved stuff around....

Now the tabs for project lists, H's B-day, next Christmas are on the bottom of the pages. Nothing blocks the,  since the above layout I also switched the monthly layouts to behind the DISFish weekly pages I use.  The teal/blue month tabs are on the first page of the DISFish which includes that month's information.  The monthly tabs on the side are for the two-page monthly sprees by Daytimer that came with this binder. Helps to see the month laid out in that way when on the phone making appo…

Planner Sections

Order in my Palmer (right now) goes like this...Dashboard, wrapped in two verses printed on card stock, Food tracker, 2016 DIYFish yearly calendar for melds tracking,  Weekly (DIYFish Weekly Project) Monthly two-page layouts, Financial Freedom pages, Fitness pages, Project pages (special event planning pages), Church Team pages. 

I have a steno pad in the back pocket for the ongoing, never ending to-do list and what purchases are needed for those tasks. 
A second stern pad is tucked into the front pocket for me brain dump as I think of things during the day.
