Wow! It's been 2 weeks since my last post. Why? Because Summertime continues to kill me!! lol! But really - we've been having fun and doing a lot of running around, but sadly, that translates into much less sewing time. Quick story - yesterday my hubby and I went out on a bike ride. 3 miraculous things happened:
1 - I didn't fall (this is a big deal!)
2 - I didn't swear once (again - big deal!)
3 - I didn't get mad at my husband (because my lack of biking skills are somehow his fault, right?)
Then one horrible thing happened - we saw a hUge rattle snake. Seriously. It was a MONSTER!!! I am terrified of snakes. I like to pretend that they are just myths. Anyway - it gave me the creeps!!!
So, on to sewing!
These past two weeks, I have been working on a project for my husband, who in a few weeks is taking a group of scouts canyoneering. He has a bunch of gear for each scout, and I am making utility backpacks for each set.
They are actually super easy, really useful, and pretty cute! I'll probably make one for each on my kids in fabric that is actually cute, and put up a tutorial soon!
In other projects - I have cut the sashing for my game night quilt:
And planned the sashing for the skill builders!
As soon as those bags are done, I will be sashing things up!! Yea!!!
