Last Friday I had one of those drop everything and sew moments. I’ve had this idea for a top zip bag in my head for a while and I’ve even drawn up a couple patterns and played with the idea, but for some reason I suddenly needed to either to figure it out or move on. So even though it didn’t work the way I originally planned, with a rounded gusset like this bag, the boxed corners worked fine and the zipper install worked out!
I don’t love the shape. It’s too – something. Too trapezoidy? Too short? Too… something. Anyway that doesn’t matter. I can make it a little taller and bring the zippered top out a little wider so it’s not such a drastic angle. But, the zipper install worked! Yay! And it matches my pink winter jacket that nothing matches. It also holds all of my stuff! I’m very anxious to re-work the shape and turn it into a pattern!
Saturday morning I took the dogs to get haircuts. Our lovely, kind groomer sadly and unexpectedly passed away a few weeks ago. She had groomed Sam and Loki for years. She had a salon in her home so she would take them both together and let me stay with them. She planned cuddle and treat breaks and talked to them in a silly voices, like you would with your own dogs. She was one of a kind. Her talented son has continued her business and I think he did an amazing job! The dogs liked him and he was super gentle with them and was so patient with Sam and her antics. She never. stops. wiggling. :) I think they look adorable. And with the snow, short hair means no soggy paws!
Yes I took pictures of my eggs. Because it’s fun to play with my camera and my lighting is still not right, so I need practice. Why not?
P.S. I just got my hosting bill from December and yikes is it high. We’re getting TONS of traffic. I’m going to be reworking the sidebar to make room for advertisers. Please contact me if you’re interested!
