Handbag Tuesday

What's a girl to do when her husband is gone for a month and the kids are in school all day? Make a total wreck of the house and not have to clean it up before husband gets home from work :). Ok, yes, I need to clean the fabric scraps that are tossed all over my living room and the cutting board and ironing board and needles laying around probably need to be cleaned too, but not yet.....just one more day....please!!

This is what comes from time alone without having to worry about anything.

I'm very happy with my handbag and I have a shirt almost done to match it. It's almost my one year wedding anniversary and I wanted something pretty to wear out.

BTW, there wasn't a pattern. I kinda had it in my head of what I wanted and just made it. I'm very proud of it! I've already had a few friends asking for one. Honestly, I don't know if I could make the same one twice..haha

Halloween Quilt in August

It's been the hottest and craziest summer I think I've ever had. Thats saying alot considering I've had three newborns in the summer. This summer....this summer I want to forget! So, to get me in a better state of mind I've been crafty. I've been writing like crazy and sewing nonstop for the past two days. It's been fun and time consuming and I'm loving it. I made a halloween quilt. I know that it's odd since it's only August. I'm trying to be ahead of the game this year and not let halloween sneak up on me. All I have to do is bind it, but I'm very happy with how it turned out. It's so bright and cheery. My kiddos love it.

So, now that school is back in and I have "free days" I will be back in business. What are your back to school plans?
