I don't think I've ever gone more than a couple of days without a blog post and I have a lot to catch up on. I tried to update yesterday, but my camera batteries were dead and do you think I could find any that were already charged???? No.
I finally had root canal part I done on Monday. The dentist's office opened at 8:15 on Monday morning after a two week office closure. I was there. Waiting. By 8:30 I was having x-rays taken and by noon I was having root canal. I had no idea that root canal took more than one appointment!! I was so happy when he was done and then he said "we'll do the next part in 10 days". What?????? It wasn't over?????? The pain I had for the past 2.5 weeks is gone. Thank goodness. It's been replace by "I've just had root canal" pain which is easy to tolerate. I go back next Tuesday for part II. Is there a part III??? I sure hope not.
I've done a teensy bit of sewing and crafting, but not nearly as much as I would like.
I made two totes.
I like the button and loop closure on the second one. I think I'll do that more often.
I also made some more fabric buttons. Such a fun little project!!!!
A fun little project until the glue container breaks that is. The glue I'm using comes in tube, kind of like a toothpaste tube. Mid-glueing the bottom of the tube split open. I threw the whole mess in a ziplock bag and drove the glue right back to Canadian Tire where I purchased it. The little girl at the customer service desk didn't really know what to do with me (or the glue). She let me exchange it. I think she was afraid of me.
I gave into peer pressure and I bought Bend the Rules Sewing. I was hesitant because I usually buy these books, flip through them and that's it. Nothing more ever comes of it. But I'm pleasantly surprised with this book. I made a couple of clutches. Quick, easy and fun.
I had some stuff to drop off at Value Village yesterday so I ran in for a quick peek. I saw a bag of fabric. All I could really see was this:
I had no idea what it was and I had no idea what else was in the bag, but for $2.99 I took a chance. I couldn't believe it when I got it home to discover there were SIX patchwork cushion covers and the cutest quilted drawstring Christmas bag!!!
And the bag...
Not sure what I'll do with them. I might chop them up and make pouches. We'll see.
Lastly, I'm freaking out!!!!! In just over a week we are headed to the cottage again and then when we get back from the cottage it's right back to school for me!! I have SO SO SO much to do between now and the cottage. Where did the summer go????????
