In spite of the consumption of excesses of caffeine, moderate alcohol courtesy of some margaritas, and lots of sugar, we did actually get some sewing and crafting done!
I think I got more sewn in 1 and 1/2 days at Sewjourn than I have managed in that time frame for a very loooooong time.
So here are my offerings:
Portabello Pixie gathered market bag
Towards my mother's late Ma's Day present
Quick to sew up but didn't love the pattern
Keyka Lou Pixie bag
Quilting cotton and a vintage pillowslip fabric for the main body
The flap looks lopsided in the photo; not sure why
Melly and Me Latte bag
Lots of fun making this!
More photos on flickr.
I also came home with some "care packages"- gorgeous Crafty Mamas shop fabrics and patterns and 2 garments from the talented Sara from "Willow and Moo"
Lucky for my daughter that they didn't fit me. Sigh. I will have to live vicariously through her.
Sara hand dyes and sews these up. I love them. They are just such happy clothes!
Add into the mix some op shopping, bakery goods, books, yarn and other bits and pieces and I can say that our car ride home was chockers...but I was one satisfied productive lush!
