Apples and oranges...

My only class today was canceled, which was sort of nice (but my teacher is sick, which isn't nice). Also, my test that was supposed to be this week got postponed until Monday. That's very good! =) And when I got home, I had time to work on some sewing, which was the best part. Really, it was all cutting out fabric, and not any sewing, but that means I can go straight into sewing tomorrow. I've got two large wallets and two small ones to make for someone (I spent Friday and Saturday making a tote bag, a wallet, and a coin purse for someone). I've also got fabric for two new purses for me. Me and Mom went to Joann's the other day, and I got some lovely stuff. I got some cute fabric for a Simplicity bag pattern, a huge bag with pleats and adorable buttons. But the best was some beautiful printed corduroy I got. It's a dark chocolate brown color, with bright pink cherries, pears, obnoxious oranges (which is the color of the lining), apples, and all sorts of flowers. It's called a "fruity floral," and it's so weird, but I absolutely love it. As of this moment, it's my favorite fabric. I was scared to cut it, because I only have a yard. I'm making a tote bag, but with instructions I've never used before. So I stood there holding my rotary cutter for 20 minutes, afraid to touch it because I didn't want to ruin it. My dad laughed at me and said, "It's just fabric!" He obviously doesn't understand the bond between a girl and her fabric. Anyway, I'm really nervous and a little excited to see how it turns out. It will hopefully be very fall-looking.

The new Relient K CD, "Forget and Not Slow Down," is coming out tomorrow! I'm so excited. The previews sound great. Relient K is my favorite band. I love Matt Thiessen's unique voice, and his lyrics are incredibly witty and smart and real. The lyrics are sometimes so exactly how I feel that I could have written them, if I had any songwriting talents at all. And of course, the music's not so bad, either. =)

Until next time,
