A few photos from my week...

My first purse/bag. I learned a lot about what not to do while making this bag (which now needs a good home... any takers?). Hopefully the next one is much better.

Today I received an email from a sewing shop in Salisbury at 1:30 and they closed at 3. The email said they were having a 75 percent off sale if you bought the rest of the bolt. I spend 70 (retail would have been 9 dollars a yard or $280) dollars on 31.5 yards of fabric or 94.5 FEET of fabric. YES!! And the best part of it all is that besides the dark green (which is going to be the backing for a quilt I am making) the rest is MODA!! I am in love. I walk around the house with my bolts of fabric and hug them. :)

I am so happy!
11 yards of blue
9 yards of yellow
8.5 yards of the dark green
3 yards of light green
Recently I have been trying to make a light and fluffy muffin. This is my second attempt. They were good, but not quite fluffy enough.
This is an update on the table runner. It is quilted now. I am working on the binding. That is my favorite part. Jared hasn't been around to read to me so I haven't sewn in on yet.
My first attempt at muffins. Again, they were really really good, but not fluffy. These tasted like little apple cakes, but they were totally healthy (oatmeal, applesauce instead of oil, flax...).
My desk in my office at SU has my name on it... weird.
Last Saturday I went to see the praise team play at the gospel shop. When it started raining we all went under the overhanging with the band (all of us but Mr. Badger).
A shot of them before it started raining.

(p.s. I am in love with it too, but i am sorry seamstress so I'm just a poser..I buy half a yard and it sits in my house FOREVVERR).

I really like the fabric...especially the pale one with red flowers...oh so pretty!
