Been away for far too long!

Oh my, more than a month since I last blogged....Things have been crazy hectic around here with end of school stuff and now summer stuff. I've been far away from my internet connection for a long time, but I have in fact been sewing quite a bit. I've got about 11 finishes since my last post, which I hope to share with you over the next few days.

Today however, I am sharing a not-quite finished project. Thing One is going to a birthday party for one of her friends this weekend (an ice-skating party, this should be very interesting as Thing One has never skated before, and did I mention she is in an aircast with a ligament injury this week?). I found this cute dance fabric and saw a nice looking easy tote bag pattern, and so I made this tote bag for the birthday girl. I still need to sew the handles onto the body of the bag, but then I will stick a Webkins into the totebag and the birthday girl will be pleased,I am sure. The pattern takes three FQs and a half-yard of lining fabric (though you have a fair amount left over after you are done). The pattern is from Terry Atkinson's new book "Happy Hour"
