Translation.... "long time, no see" - or in this case, write.
Twelve days since my last post? Where has the time gone?
Let's see ... it has gone here... making a messenger bag for my little guy's first day of preschool (which was the 14th - today~!) - because he wanted a bag that mommy made rather than a store bought one. So I recycled a pair of Daddy's jeans, gathered some scraps on hand, and added in a great space theme fabric with a daddy-designed felt rocket applique, and this is the result:
And this is the happy recipient - sporting the 3D glasses that his special friend Jill sent with a boatload of books and videos (trying to keep said kiddo happy and occupied so Mommy could sew on Labor Day weekend. It worked -kinda..)
So then Mommy got to work on this:
A great mesh bag (fiberglass screen from the hardware store coupled with more of the stellar fabric from the Messenger bag)... for swimming school!!! The first day was the 12th.
So while the Munchkin was at preschool and Mommy was at home cooling her heels - my friend Shellie came over and we worked on a dozen of these:
Oh - and while doing that, I also made this... from scratch (the sauce, not the pasta)... yummy!
It's good to be back! I will try not to stay away so long next time.
