Study breaks are productive!

I had to take a break from studying for an interview to complete these grocery bags that have been patiently waiting for their bias tape.

Now I have to change the thread in the machine to a different color and start on another set. But first I have to create a custom yoga bag for a repeat customer. She sent me her old college bed linens to make her bag. The sheets are so groovy! I am sure she'll strike a better tree pose when she hauls her new bag to class.

I spent a few days at the farm. The county fair was held this week and I enjoyed some time with the sister. I happened to lose my drivers license in the process, but sometimes those things just happen. I brought home a half a bushel of green beans, new potatoes, onions, zucchini, tomatoes, zinnias, and sunflowers from the garden. For Sunday lunch we put a ham, potatoes, and onions in the crock pot. Just before serving we added green beans. Mmmm. So good!

I'm going to be busy this week with getting the yoga bag sewn, entertaining friends, interview, and more job hours. But I'm not complaining! This summer has been great so far. Keep it coming!

  4. They're mine! I just bought these. I like to keep reusable bags in the cars, just in case. I can't wait to get them. They look like tank tops hanging on the clothesline in this pic, hehe

  7. This is SUCH a genius idea, and I notice they're flying out of your shop - way to go! If you need cheap sheets, let me know. I have a great thrift shop with many, many sheets for less than $1 each!
