my Tuesday timeout...

Before I post, I just wanted to let you know that today is the last day for Keyka Lou's $5 pattern sale! If you haven't peeked through her wonderful patterns, now's a great time! Click here to check them out! And now on to my regular posting...

Today, being a Tuesday and as is tradition, Andrea and I had our timeout/sewing day. After we enjoyed our Timmy's, we got right down to it and both cut out new Birdie Sling pieces. I was super determined to make progress and managed to alllmooost finish off my bag. (It's not that Andrea wasn't as determined as me, it's just that she has a little guy in the house who was determined that she pay attention to him and not her sewing!) Here are my bag pieces, displayed on Andrea's lovely vintage stove...
Sewing the strap...
And the neeearrrly finished bag... just needing the final topstitch on the band.
Yay for a really productive day! I love Tuesdays like that!

You can complete an entire bag in a day?!? A school day, which hardly counts as more than 1/2 a day... ? You are amazing!

This gives me an idea for my girls at school to work on. They would probably love making a bag.
Thank you for the idea.
