The Sewing Bug

Yes! It has finally bitten me again. This weekend I decided, after cleaning the house, that I would pull out the old sewing machine. It's a little awkward, but I managed to sew standing up. Yes, you read that right. I placed the machine on the bar between the kitchen & living room, put the pedal on the floor (perfect height), and I was able to stand & sew. I finally made Cindy's 3rd wallet. I got the size right this time, but I'm a little worried about the metal snaps. There may end up being a wallet #4. I also found 3 adorable floral print fat quarters on sale at JoAnn's last week. So I whipped up a new purse for myself. I call it the "unstructured bag." It resembles a tote bag that you'd use for shopping, but it has an outside pocket as well as 2 inside. I also added a clip for my keys so they don't disappear at the bottom. I call it unstructured since I didn't use any interfacing for stiffness. It's so cute. As soon as I can find a USB adaptor for my camera & new computer I'll start posting pics again. Although I think I only have one reader these days, so Mama Brann, I'll post those pics soon! Thanks for reading!

Well...I'm honored and disappointed that people don't take time to read the "letters" we write each other anymore. I have the same problem with my blog...people just don't read them or leave message like they did in the beginning....except for my two oldest daughters. Can't you get a "sewing" bar stool to sit on at the bar? I can't picture standing up to use a sewing machine...but whatever works,huh?

Hey! I read this blog too, I just don't comment all the time. And, Mom, I read your blog too.

Okay...I guess I know when I'm wrong. Actually I have 4 comments on my newest blog.
