Busy, busy, busy

I have been busy sewing for the last week. Last night I made a fabric flower and this morning I decided to make it into a hair clippie!

I also made this tote bag. My mother and I are attending the International Quilt Show in Long Beach this summer and I needed a large bag to take all my supplies in. We are taking a few quilting classes while we are there as well.

School is almost out!

Oh my goodness! There is less than 20 days left of school and I cannot wait! I've been in a first grade classroom for the last few days and will continue to be in that clasroom until Friday. I went to bed at seven last night I was so tired! These kids are crazy!

I finished a purse for my friend Donna. She picked out the fabric months ago at the Cotton Ball in Morro Bay. I finally had the extra time to complete it. I added a fabric flower that she can take on and off as she pleases.

My mom, the kids and I were in Seattle this weekend for my cousin Devon's wedding. To the dismay of my son, John, we found a fabric store in Pike Place Market and spent aobut an hour there. I got out of there spending less than thirty dollars, but I could have spend much, much more if I had it! The shob is called Undercover Quilters. It was fabulous and the owners were so nice. Someday, I hope to go back.

This summer I hope to sew a lot. I spent a small fortune on fabric this year and need to get stuff made. Quilts, purses and whatever else I can think of. My mom and I are going to the International Quilt Show in Long Beach. We are signed up to take several classes. We have a hotel with a view of the harbor and are looking forward to a mother/daughter trip.

New Goal in Life:

Open my own fabric store in this sad little town where the only place to get fabric is Wal-Mart!
