More Info?

Last night I didn't put too many details about how/size or whatever for the two bags. If anyone wants more info let me know, I'd be happy to share. That's all!

Wow, I made something.

Well, was it worth the wait? No? Well, that's OK! What I have here are 2 awesome bags. Now whats better is what they are made of. These babies are made from pillow shams! One whole sham per bag. It worked out really great! They were the kind of sham that has a finished part around the edge, not a ruffle but just like a big casing (make sense?). I took that out to give me more to work with and then all I did was cut the seams out and then I sewed the sides together with a french seam and then put on the handles from the leftover side piece. I had cut the smaller one for something else a few months ago and it just sat around so I thought 'Hey I'll make something with that" so I did. Then a few days later I made the bigger one. I have one more sham left (different material) so I'm thinking about making another one. It was pretty slick. It has been really, really hot here the past 2 weeks or so, the past 2 days have been really nice (so of course I got a sunburn, no surprise really).
My birthday is coming up on Friday. I'm planning on going ice skating. I'm pretty excited about it because I haven't been skating in a long time. We were going pretty regularly but not in the past year. It's an indoor place, but it's going to be upper 80's on Friday so I might have to bring a change of clothes since it'll be something like 40 degrees colder inside the arena. That will be strange. I've never been ice skating on my birthday. I'm also planning on making an owl cake. I've seen some around the Internet that look pretty easy, just cut it to look like an owl and decorate it. That's all I've got.

You know it's hot when...

You go outside to clip your nails and you break a sweat. That is what happened to me yesterday. It was 83 degrees at 11am, it was still 90 degrees at 10 pm. Yuck!! And then our AC quit working. Luckily, they were able to come out today and fix it. SO far today at 10:26 am it is 84 but the heat index is 92. Gross. I'm SO glad that I don't have to go anywhere. I mean I'd like to go places but not when it's like this. Are you getting my vibe that I don't like to be hot. I think there was a time when I didn't mind it as much. I am a summer baby after all, I should like the summer.
I'd like to sew something today, I have no clue what. I mean I could make another skirt... I'd like to make a little wallet because I like to go places and not bring a purse with all my crap in it.. There's this super cute pattern I'd like to make, what I need of those for who knows. I just like to make stuff. I also have an idea for an Owl softie, that's been roaming my brain for a long time now. Anyways, maybe I'll have pictures to post later on (here's hoping...)
