Damn you Blogger!
Ok, so some of you have already commented on my weird post today...Please come back and read what I am adding. Please? What happened was that I uploaded the pictures to Blogger through 'Hello' and was going to go back in to edit everything. Only Blogger went down for several hours!! Just to let everyone know, I am in process of moving to Typepad. More on that later... Anyway, back to our regularly scheduled post:
Saturday was a great day for getting stuff done--sort of. Jeremy and two of his friends, one a plumber and one an electrician, were putting in a ceiling fan in our Great Room. Since my car was blocked in and I didn't want to do yard work, I decided to make some things that I had been meaning to do. One of the things on my list was a Springy bag with some Amy Butler fabric. I love stripes!! so you can imagine the fun I had with one. I still need to steam it so it looks nice, but I really like the way it turned out. I didn't use a pattern per se, but I adapted one to fit my needs. Monica, since it is cotton, it is a little flimsy to hold Yoda, but I am sure I'll find bones hidden in it!
If I really wanted to, I could use this bag as a reversable bag. The lining is also Amy Butler, and it is all coordinated. I still have some left overs that I was thinking about using for a needle role.
I stopped at Barnes and Noble yesterday. I know, it's my kryponite. But I only bought these two magazines. I was pleasenly surprised by the Vogue. I like about 8 designs. I am not usually one for summer sweaters, but these are almost year-round ones.
What would a blog entry be without the Yodster? She had just finished defending her yard from a bunch of middle schoolers cutting through our yard. I hope they find some nice presents on their shoes later...Serves them right!!
It's Spring, Mom!
