…been doin’ a little bit of sewing. This applique flower bag is actually for a friend- custom made as a diaper bag. I hope she likes it.
It was fun to get back into the sewing room and do some design work.
It seems nearly impossible to get anything sewn during the summer- just keeping the house and yard tidy seems to be all consuming.
A few weeks ago I was dreading the end of summer; the end of unscheduled days, freedom and all of that. Now, I can’t wait for my little cherubs to go back to school. I think they sense the end of summer days- they are getting restless and making me crazy.

    Howdy N! Your new bag is lovely! I channeled you yesterday and today while in fabric stores (3). Found some really fun things. Ashley and I are attempting our own Olympic feat… 9 I-spy quilts for X-mas. Also, I need an apron. Here is some of what I found: owls, mannequins, hounds tooth, Mexican hairless dogs, flowers, Snoopy & Hello Kitty Christmas, and 2 baby bird chicks playing tug-o-war with a worm… Now I need to channel your discipline.
