|Visitors to our yard this week.|
Child free, that is! DS is at Papa and Grammy's house, i.e. on the farm, this week. He was amazed at how big everything is, the yard, the horses, the dog (a giant schnauzer)!
What did DH and I do on our first free day? Well, we watched some shows on Netflix and napped - exciting, huh? Today we are heading out to Missouri wine country and due to storms overnight, I'm packing not only the unbrella but a couple of towels.
So, here's a short bit about what I've done this week.
A couple blog wins. The first I had forgotten about and so had Moda Lissa but someone reminded her and she contacted me, sew there was a lot of reminding going on! All of this was in a little box - can't wait to try the Auriful thread.
Then, Teresa at The Green Bag Lady gave away more green bag lady bags (have you made one yet? - sew simple) AND some fabric.
This is a bundle of 10 organic FQs from Cloud9 Fabrics. I started making a Mill House Inn tote bag yesterday that I had hoped to finish up but I'm adding pockets and, well, just taking my time.
Now, my bag will have the same dimensions and construction, but it won't look quite like the Mill House Inn tote, which is based on using a honey bun (1.5" strips). Maybe I will have time to show you when I finish it in the next few days!
Sew Lux Fabrics. Got a new single line rose template - love it!
I plan to bind it by turning the backing to the front. Never done that before but should reduce bulk on something so small.
