A little weekend sewing

I survived the first week back to school. I was tired at the end of each day and didn't manage to get much of anything done.

Next weekend is our huge geocaching get-together. There will be well over two hundred geocachers at the day's activities and it looks like almost one hundred will be camping for the weekend. We are among the campers. I agreed to do this back in the winter under the condition that we got an inflatable air mattress. Well we got the mattress but it won't fit in our tent! So, kindly, a fellow geocacher has agreed to lend us a tent that is plenty big enough for Joe and I and the air mattress AND the two (big) dogs.

As a thank you to Laura, I've made her this camping tote bag. I'll give it to her next weekend. I hope she likes it.

I have become totally addicted to making fabric note cards. These are the ones I made this morning.

I know I've posted a lot of cards like these, but I feel like i finally got the hang of them this morning. This is the first batch that I truly love!Again, thanks to Randi and to Linda for their great tutorials that I used to make these cards!

I always see such lovely fabric cards posted on blogs--your included now. But I've never tried them. Gotta make time for that!

Those cards are looking really nice! It feels good to get the hang of the process, doesn't it? I still don't feel like I can finish a bunch really quickly, but I'm getting faster, I think. I know it's addicting!

I need to get my hands on some of that DS fabric. The owner of my fabric store said that she just realized it was an oversight that she hadn't ordered any. Yay! Hopefully it will be in soon.

Have a good weekend on your comfy air mattress!
