Excuse the mess while we exhale. School is out!
i hope you got to sleep in, too. happy summer!
Looks about the same around here. We’ve had nonstop “making” going on at our house since school let out. I love it. Enjoy and who cares about the mess.
Your moleskin books are really nice – and I think a great teacher gift for man or woman! I was just going back through your “Sewing” posts for inspiration and thought I was looking at my own photo for a sec – (Jan 2008) ’cause I have the exact same sofa as your inlaws. But I have gathered some energy to organize some “little things” in those pretty string bags that you made for your daughter.
hehe doesn’t it feel good?
Hurray! My summer just started today as well (I am a teacher.) I just wanted to say that Snow Flower and the Secret Fan was AWESOME! I was looking for a new book to read and read your blog the day you mentioned it – I could not put it down! Thanks for the reccomendation!
HI!! I want to comment an old post but it doesn´t allowed. This post http://blairpeter.typepad.com/weblog/2006/03/fabric_flowers.html because I´ve made some fabric flowers very colorful. In my blog http://signedbypaulaminnemann.blogspot.com/2009/06/e-se-os-manjericos-tivessem-flor.html
I have more but I must take pics to post them! 🙂
Hi! I was curious is that a yellow bean bag? Did you use a pattern? I have been wanting to make bean bags for my kids.
Thanks Estela, that beanbag gets a ton of use. It is sort of my own pattern, with some elements borrowed from Amy Butler's gumdrop pillow pattern. It was a big undertaking, but totally worth it, it gets used all the time.
I may give it a try I was getting ready to order the gumdrop pattern you mentioned and thought it might be too small. I love the fabric you picked! Hopefully mine will look as good as yours!
Isn’t it crazy when they get out of school? I’m having a hard time finding my rythm. I get lost in the day…
I spy a Childcraft book. I love those books. Still have all mine.
Your blog is totally awesome..
