Spring colors

Spring is finally in full bloom around here!  The wasps and lizards are out, but more importantly, so are the flowers!  And thankfully, I've been feeling much more human lately, so I've been out enjoying it and finally getting some things done.  I've even been so caught up on housework lately that I've been able to enjoy some other activities again.

So in order to keep my itch manageable, I had to break out some more fabric.  I decided to go with another Baby Travel Bag.  I don't think I've talked about that here yet, but it's a design I came up with when the bags I had weren't big enough when I was traveling with Scooch.  I didn't want a bag for diapers, a bag for toys and a bag for food.  So I took some of the features of the bags I liked most and combined them into one, gigundo bag.  Here is the first one I made.

So many people liked them, I decided to sell them.  Unfortunately, right around the same time, we decided to sell our house, and well, I make such a mess when I sew, all my stuff got packed up to show the house.  And so, in spite of the mess it makes (I'm such a rebel!), I am again sewing full force, leaving a flurry of threads and fabric fluff in my wake.  Check out the bags that are to come!  Each bag will be two prints; the top print is the outer fabric, the one under it is it's lining.

So I have 4 bags in the works right now!  Keep an eye on my Etsy shop for finished bags.  I'm so excited to be working on these again!  Oh, and a little secret, I'm going to be working on a little something for my iPod too.  If it turns out well, you might see some of those in my shop too!  No promises of course, we'll just have to see how it goes...

And now onto Spring!  Even though I've been really good about keeping things in order in the house lately, the outside of the house is a different story.  We haven't had the lawn mowed since it started growing again, but so far the only things that are growing are wildflowers, and who wants to cut those down??  It looks so pretty and Scooch loves squatting down and touching (read: picking) them all.  So for now our neighbors will just have to put up with the meadow in the neighborhood.  Don't worry folks, we'll be gone soon!
