looking back, looking ahead
I've been waiting to share some pictures of this fancy day bag I made a few weeks ago. It was a gift, ordered by a considerate husband for his lucky wife. I love being a part of gifts, even when they're not from me.
But if I made it, it's a little bit from me, right?
The day bag has been my most popular bag pattern, to date. Not surprising, since I based the shape and size on one of my favorite (store-bought) bags.
I love receiving pictures of the things I've made being used and loved! What a reward, to see someone enjoying my work.
I'm wearing my new striped shorts and feeling like I should be at the beach.
I'm prepping food for a big family celebration weekend. We'll be celebrating my favorite brother, among other things. Glancing at Steve's packing list this morning, I saw: "box cutter, badminton, cinnamon rolls, fabric scraps". Clearly, this is going to be a great trip.
Wishing you a weekend full of cinnamon rolls and badminton! (and box cutters, if you're into that)
