PHEW – Long. Day – but fun all around!!


Baby shower was fun – I learned the official names of lots of baby animals, alhtough at the family dinner when I was recapping, we think that “welp” is an action, and “pup” is the noun…. in regards to baby seals. Not that it would have helped me much – but still!!  Favorite Funny Moment:

C: Oh, neat – reversible wrapping paper


C: Isn’t this your present? Didn’t you know that.

(Hysterical Laugher, all around)


Also – finished a couple of totebags and coupon holders. I am going to try doing a padded version, and a newer rounded with a pocket version – exciting! Here are some photos of the ones I”ve made recently. The good sides of said bags… not the strings still attached, not so straight or even hems…. btw new vocabulary words… backstitch, contrast stitch…

The folded in half, that open up things are coupon organizers. Keep in mind people – this is my 2cnd and 3rd projects, really – so it sorta looks like an 8 year old made it – but really, its the best I can do at this point.


Final comment – the other day it was cold and foggy here, and not much sun was peeking through. This is sad for the cat – he loves to pass out in the hot sun. After a while in the morning, I didn’t seem him – so I was getting coffee and found this. The one and only spot of sun in the whole house.

    Yea You!!!!! I’m so impressed that you’re doing this all by yourself….I’ve taken sewing classes in school and even got some lessons by my neighbor but I *still* need Kelly and Charlene’s help when I’m following a pattern.
    I’m bummed I missed you at the shower…..

    You make me laugh! “OH NEAT!” How about that paper? I should have warned you. ha.

    You’re doing awesome with your sewing. You’ve taken on some big projects VERY quickly! You learn quick! Glad the finger is healing. Silly!

    Ah Simon. I love that cat. =)
