Lazy Girl Summer Tote

I took quick pictures this morning.  Here is the tote using Brooklyn Heights by Benartex.  These are the front and back covers.

And here is what the inside looks like.  I should point out the inside lining is not Brooklyn Heights.  I'm afraid I've totally forgotten what it is.  I'll find out and let you know.

That's all for now.  More later!

It's Almost Thanksgiving

I know, I know, it's been a while.  However, football season really takes it's toll.  We've not had a free weekend in almost 3 weeks.  Good news, the Jaguars have won their last three games and are now #1 in the AFC South!  Woo Hoo!

We have family coming on Friday for the weekend.  Looking forward to it, but have lots to do to get ready.

On the sewing side of things, I've been working diligently on this Lazy Girls Design Purse for my friend T.  It's called the Summer Tote and it's SUPER EASY!  We're using Brooklyn Heights by Benartex.  It's going to be very cute!

After that's done, I have to start working on the tshirt quilt.  I'll show pictures when I begin. 

Anyway, I'm off Wednesday so I'll update more this week and show you pictures of the purse in progress. 

Have a great week!

I'm Still Here and Veteran's Day

It's been a very busy couple of weeks for me so I really haven't gotten much sewing done.  My husband is a professional photographer and to keep expenses down, I tag along and help when I can.  The past few weekends were busy with a halloween party and a wedding (this past Friday and Saturday) and then a baby shower.  Had to whip up a quick burp cloth for that one. 

On a sewing note, I'm making another t-shirt quilt.  Yay!  These are so much fun to make and it's nice to know people really appreciate them.  I'm also going to start working on a purse for a friend of mine.  Has anyone made any of the Lazy Girl purses?  She picked one of those patterns and it seems pretty easy and straight forward.

Thank you to all our Veteran's and their families who served and fought so that we can enjoy the freedom have.
