I definitely have a bunch of projects I really need to be working on, so, hopefully tomorrow i'll get a chance to sit at the sewing machine for a bit.

The outer part of the bag is attached to the wooden handles with small buttons. So I am now on a mission to figure out how it was made so I can make as many covers as I want for the same purse! Anyone know a pattern for this? Heck, I could even use the pillow case for a cute summery purse. I got both things for only $3!
Of course, I feel a little guilty being so excited over something today with such a tragedy only a couple hours away. My thoughts and prayers go out to everyone at Virginia Tech and all the families affected by this horrific thing. I truly don't understand what would make a person want to do something like that to his college peers. Really, what is wrong with people?

And yes, that is a half naked woman on a motorcycle there on the pocket. Here's a close-up in case you really need more. Hey, he likes it, and that's what really matters. But of course, I've got some hot girl on bikes fabric left over if anyone is interested. I simply cannot think of a single thing I would ever use the rest of it for. I also finished my log cabin quilt top this past week, just in time for class on Saturday. I'd show it to you, but then I might ruin a certain wedding surprise for someone, so, we'll keep that one under wraps for now.

I haven't had much time for craftage lately. I better get my butt moving though, because I have a quilting class in 2 1/2 weeks and I am supposed to have a log cabin finished. oops. But I'm not trying to scare my Quilt Block Swap partner. Su, the blocks are done and will be in the mail tomorrow!

The problem with said plastic branch is that it only really lasted a day. Case in point.
Can you see the hole? That is one of the little branchy nobules that he totally chewed right off. He is currently working on a second. It's frustrating to buy a toy for the kid and then have to sit and monitor him like a kindergarten recess aide while he plays with it. Grrr. What's a mom to do?

Can you see the little owls on the bottom one! Very cute! I do apologize for the crappy pictures. There is absolutely no sunlight coming into the house today. Rain Rain Rain and more Rain. blah.
Anyway, while I was in Japan I celebrated my birthday. The big 30. Oh well, I guess we all have to grow up sometime. But, upon my return I was greeted with a super cool present from my hubby. He built me this while I was gone! A design wall! yippee! It's pretty big actually, but it's really a great thing! I definitely had no idea he was going to do this. When I had gone to the quilt show I came home talking about them and how it would be nice to have one. I guess he just took that and ran...straight to Home Depot and the fabric store. What a guy! It's built pretty much into the wall, but he assured me it can come down if/when we move. Rock on!
