One More Day

Love Coin Purse


Tomorrow is D-Day!  I've been waiting (and wishing for) this day for a long time, but, if I'm honest, I'm actually a bit nervous.  Why?  I'm not really sure.  I've been keeping myself busy the last few days for a few reasons...I want things organized when I get home from the hospital and I'm keeping my mind from wondering off to the "what ifs" of my knee surgery.  I've completed several sewing projects, including a couple of coin purses. 



I made this little bag for a friend's daughter, Nina. She is a huge Big Time Rush fan.  In case you were wondering, BTR is a boy band from Nickelodeon Channel.  I made the BTR coin purse using an iron on patch I purchased.  I then hand stamped "Nina" using my alphabet stamps and fabric ink.  I listed my "Love" coin purse Monday afternoon in my Etsy Shop and it sold within about thirty minutes! Very exciting!

I've also completed a "secret project" for the Bloggerette Sorority Sisters Halloween Swap.  I can't show you what I made, however because it is SECRET until after all the projects are mailed and received.  Then participants will write and post photos of their projects.  They will also reveal their partners at that time.  So stay tuned!  All the projects are due on October 11.  You can click on the link to the Bloggerette page and you'll find a list of the participants as well as more information about the swap, etc.

Okay, don't laugh.  I made a couple of walker totes!  My doctor said I'll be sporting a walker for three or four weeks, so I figured why not make a caddy in order to carry some magazines, hand sewing, knitting, etc.!  I used Simplicity 2822.  The pattern was surprisingly easy.  It was much like just making a regular tote bag.  In the photos, I've attached the bags to the back of one of my chairs as I don't have my walker...yet!  



Lots to do!  Tootles for now!

Hey Angela, Sorry I've been a bit absent from Blogland of late, and I've only just caught up with your news!
I really hope the op goes ok and that you have a pleasant recovery.
