Tami hasn't seen anything from the 28th.. I reloaded the photo from the 29th, which for some reason today I suddenly couldn't see, and now I can see it... anyone else?

I've been sewing, watching some Jordan's and taking photos. I also received a great treat in the mail this week! Monica and Karen sent me a copy of the new Designers' Quarters featuring Karen's new studio, fabric line and enviable Girl Gang. Not to mention some notes and annotations on the article. They're cracking me up. Go here right now and check out the store tour!
Tomorrow's goal is to finally get those pictures for Elizabeth and then finish her tote bag. I think about 1 1/2 Jordan's should do it. Then finally to my Summer in the City Quilt. I CANNOT WAIT.
And now my pretty pink petals, a gratuitous garden shot.
The pattern is so cute. I've got my pile of fabrics and that's my next project. (after Elizabeth's bag) Isn't the packaging darling! Melissa and Leslie had these sweet little baskets that perfectly match. I could just eat the whole thing its so good. Of course my photos don't do it justice so when I get my fabric all laid out you know I'll have to snap another (thousand) photos.
Here's my project for the next couple of days. Pretty combo huh? Elizabeth needs a bag for market.
Thanks for all the lovely comments this past week! You make my day bloggy friends.
Its from a Need'l Love book, French Market Threads. I'm so thrilled to discover their website. American Patchwork and Quilting magazine did a story on Renee in the current issue. I love her stuff.
Because I'm not satisfied with just the Pamkittymorning labels that I ordered! Everyone must know, its a PAMKITTYMORNING bag. SEE IT! KNOW IT! Behold it in its completed glory! Nah, I never say stuff like that. I say things like "Geez Pam, get enough labels on that bag yet?"
I know, I'm ridiculous. I'm not afraid to admit it either. I also had to show off some of my darling little ribbon from Daiso. Seriously I could weep with the cuteness of it.
Loved the pattern for the bag. I did change some stuff, like I only have the tie on one side. The pattern calls for ties front and back. I added a bit of elastic to the tie, so it would have some give when I wanted to jam stuff into it and I wouldn't have to untie it. I just cut it in half and sewed the two ends to a piece of elastic. I lined the bag with prewashed canvas to give it body. I also added an inside pocket. I wanted to use this zipper tutorial, but until just this second I forgot that I bought a zipper for it. Oh well, next time.
So there you have it. Nothing that can't be accomplished with a couple of taped episodes of Crossing Jordan and a bonus Perry Mason!
New friends like Annie Smith at Simple Arts who blog about you and include a bit about you in their podcasts. I look forward to seeing Annie at Market. She's going to have the cutest Rocket/Space man quilt there. Its her first market if I remember correctly! She's going to LOVE. IT.
You my little cupcakes, you keep coming back and putting up with my shenanigans.
New books and magazines. Love my two Japanese books, and Kim turned me onto this whole digital scrapbooking thing. I love all the stuff on her blog, go look, seriously, darling images and she's amazing anyway. Go there and find out for yourself. She's shared some groovy tips for photoshop with me.
And speaking of Photoshop, Monica has been such a big help, a new blogging buddy and do I ever Y her.
I even love pollen.
Because of this guy. And I really Y my wonderful husband Bret for getting me a camera that would take a photo of a bee buzzing past me.
I also love the inspiration of people, like today, like this quilt. I totally am in love with this quilt. Go there too.
Losing Crossing Jordan and noon and thinking it was gone forever then finding it at 3pm. Ahh so happy.
And finding out you don't have to go to the 8:30 am jury duty. Fingers crossed for the 11am call in.
And really everyone who comes on by and reads and comments and just well everything. Because life is good isn't it?
