Back from never-never land – where girls sew and do crafty things, stay up all night chatting and rise with the sun to sip tea and plan more crafty adventures…
The girls and I had a great visit with Mom – she went home yesterday and we’re all missing her already.
Big Girl got to do a lot of sewing with Mom this trip. She made several things, including a tote bag that I had planned to make for her, but she took the project on herself. I’m so proud of her!
And you may recall this little scrap (or two) of fabric from a tease last week…
I ended up making this:
Which was supposed to be a tote for my Bible and books for my Bible Study class. It’s called Cup of Joy and I thought the little coffee/tea cups were appropriate.
It’s got all sorts of pockets inside. (I love pockets!)
But, it is HUGE. The pattern I used didn’t have any finished dimensions on it and when I was done, I thought it was a bit too big for carrying back and forth each week.
So, I think I will save it for trips and such – and maybe use the scraps to make a smaller bag for my Bible tote. (maybe this weekend!)
But, for now, I’m up to my eyeballs in spreadsheets and data management. Going a little crazy but thankful I have a job and looking forward to more craft time this weekend.
