I have exciting news! Well, it's exciting for me at least. I'm taking a quilting class! It is going to be on Wednesday nights for five weeks throughout August. At the end of those five weeks, I should be a quilting guru. I'm pretty sure I could learn own my own, but the idea of five nights out by myself is too good to pass up! And if I have to spend those nights with a bunch of old ladies to accomplish that, so be it.
I know I said I wasn't going to sew anymore for awhile, but I desperately needed a little bag to carry my knitting stuff around. I made this one tonight and it should work perfectly. I also need to make a purse, because I hate my current one so much that it's almost painful for me to take it anywhere. It's served me well for about a year and a half but suddenly I'm sick to death of it. So anyway, I need to whip up some sort of bag to use instead.
Today Steve took Emma to the shoe store with him so I could take a much needed nap. I was so happy, and surprised, because he is not usually into running errands with Emma. "Do you know how much longer it takes to do everything when Emma is along?" he says. No, no I don't. Really. I have NO idea. It's not like I take her with me everywhere I go. Oh, wait...yes I do.
