well since i'll be out of commission for the next few days {family visiting, yah} i thought i would overload you guys with things to discuss in my absence.

1: scraps purchased from kung fu cowgirl. best etsyer that i've dealt with so far. not only did she round these up for me to play with {yummy japanese fabrics that i can't afford}, but she sent extra goodies along with them! i really need to make her something fabulous as a thank you...

2: saturday, walking trail by the lake.

3: japanese fabric pouch purchased from kung fu cowgirl. go see her shop now! it's filled with cute fun little stuff and she's having a pouch sale, 3 for $12! except you jen, since you can no longer shop...

4: preview of fun necklaces soon to be in the sto'. as soon as i can find my drill bit....arg.

5: cute pouch i whipped up lastnight using said kung fu cowgirl scraps...i need to perfect my technique {and get a zipper foot for my machine} but this one holds my checkbook perfectly! yay for me.

6: fabric for my first project out of the amy butler In-Stitches book. can't wait to get to it...

7: finished mother-in-law gretta bag with matching fabric card holder. first time using magnetic snap closures and boy are they simple. also tried some different handles...pretty much just glad i got it finished in time...

ps: you know you've watched too many british films and read too many british books when you hurt yourself at home and go hopping around the room yelling "bugga bugga bugga!"

have a good weekend guys!

Sometime ago, i bought the dancing bacon button from kung fu cowgirl for my boy, he loved it. And she is very nice indeed. Agreed.

You've been busy. I need to tell everyone at my house to BUGGER OFF...so I can be crafty like you.

I too had my sewing machine out today. Unfortunately I wasn't making cute things like you do. I had to alter a jean skirt for my neice-I hate sewing jean! I also altered a really cute pink and brown baby doll top that I can wear prego. The top was too big, but the bottom part will fit the tummy very nicely later on-now the top part fits too! Thankfully for preggos everywhere that babydoll style tops are very in fashion because maternity clothes can be so expensive!

hey, 'new, nicer hellhole' (check out my blog), so fun. nice to have a crafty time to yourself instead of poopy diaper/3 am raging 2 year-old fever/stressed-out mom time to yourself. [sigh] just sour grapes, i guess.
