my Tuesday timeout...

Thanks for the love yesterday on the custom QR quilt! I must say that I woke up this morning with a huge sense of relief that it's no longer hanging over my head... and not just on my design wall! With it out of the way, it sure feels like time to do a little fun sewing!

My youngest is at that stage of perpetual forgetfullness. She's 13, IF you know what I mean. Well, since we've dealt with a missing housekey, an almost missing wallet, and a cell phone that's just too expensive to go missing, I thought it was time for a new rule. She will NOT leave the house without said items hanging off her body in a bag (no, Julianna, we don't have to call it a "purse") designed for that purpose. So together, we settled on a design, the cross body bag by Keyka Lou, and she chose her fabrics...
But then I realized that my shop only has one cross body bag still in stock, so I decided to cut a few more... don't you love the bicycle print?
And then I remembered that I'm out of the little owl envelope clutch purses, so I cut some more.
They're based on Keyka Lou's sweet owl coin purse pattern, but my version looks like this...
THEN, I remembered that I already have two new camera case wristlets on the go that I really should finish so they can join their sisters already listed in the shop.
Sheesh. And I think Julianna's at a forgetful stage?
She must get it from her Dad.
Have a great Tuesday!

Really nice stuff! Love all those fabrics. Unfortunately we decided not to come over this spring break. :( Thought I should let you know! Our passports still aren't here either. Grrr. I'll let you know though, if we're over sometime and it would work to head south because I'd still love to do that!

Love it! I wouldn't call you forgetful...more like the mouse in "If You Give a Mouse a Cookie", just "When you give Kim a piece of fabric, she's going to want to cut a cute bag out of it. When she cuts a cute bag design out of it then she'll remember she needs some adorable change purses to go with it." You know...like that. ;)

And...I TOTALLY know what you're talking about with a forgetful 13 year old! Geesh! Do I know!!

Hi...love the owls. There are two difficult times in a woman's life. When she is 13...and when her daughter is 13! Have a great day!
