Does anyone have any confetti or balloons?

I am officially finished with my four summer classes, and I am super excited about that! Classes were over on Thursday, but I had to finish a few papers. I was a terrible procrastinator and put off starting my research paper on "Wuthering Heights" and Emily Bronte until...yesterday? Eesh. This is what my desk looks like right now. My huge record player/radio/CD player takes up half of the desk, so my papers spill over onto the bed. :) Anyway, I'm finished! I just emailed the paper to my teacher (this was an online English class).

I have lots of plans for the next four weeks...sewing, fixing up Jane, and catching up on my classic movies. I also have a pile of books waiting for me-mostly children's books ("James and the Giant Peach," "The Tiger Rising," and "The Tale of Despereaux" to name a few). Plus I've got a few fun blog posts planned...well, I'm looking foward to them, anyway. :) One about my quirkiness, which is something that has been increasingly more noticable to me recently (and I'm hoping to make myself feel better by hearing about some of your quirks, too), one about children's books (which I have been obsessed with lately), and quite possibly a new blog layout. I know I haven't had this one for long, and I do love it, but it has been becoming a little too busy and...*pink* for me here lately.

Yesterday I squeezed in some time to finish this bag. It is for Sue, the lady who gave/traded me the dress form. I was in a hurry to make it because I thought I was going to see her today, but I didn't. She said she wanted something black and white, so it would match with anything.

She traded me Jane for this bag. Pretty amazing, right? As Amber said, this was definitely a God thing. :)

I really need to take the time to match up patterns. :) This lining fabric will almost make you dizzy, anyway.

Until next time,


  1. congrats!!!! *blows soudmaker* I love that bag BTW...

  2. Haha, I think it was a God-thing that you put that! (thanks by the way!)

    That really is a cute bag. That's one lucky lady! Where did you learn to make them? It looks so complicated to me.

    Anyway, happy blogging!
