A Busy Weekend

Boy that long weekend went FAST!!! I had such sewing plans but it just didn't seem to happen. I did start making a purse, not a tote, just a plain old purse and I didn't get it done. I finished it up tonight after work.



The fabric is Alexander Henry Juicy Limes and Pears and the more I see it the more I love it. I may need more.

We had to go to Woodstock yesterday (about 2 hours away) so I brought another embroidery project with me figuring I could work on it in the car on the way there and I anticipated a bit of "waiting around" time. Well, I almost had it done before we even got there. I was wishing I had brought more to work on. Hopefully I get that done this week although looking at our schedule I don't see much time being spent in my sewing room.

Tonight we're off for ice cream with some geocaching friends. Yum!

I have drooled over that fabric before without knowing what to do with it! But, your bag is just gorgeous! Almost like that fabric was meant for that very piece!

Hope you had a great long weekend - it was so rainy here in Vancouver that we feel a bit ripped off. But that's ok, I got a lot more sewing done and didn't feel bad sitting inside instead of 'enjoying' the outdoors. And now I've learned what geocaching is - very cool hobby. Hmm fabric or GPS, fabric or GPS?!

Love the denim combo with the fabric.

I just made a tote bag out of that fabric and my sister "stole" it when she was just here visiting.
