Sewing & the SuperBowl

leave a comment »

Okay, since I’ve been doing so well over here, I figured I might as well do a new post over here, for those following this one – you know just to let you know how i’m doing and what not.

Today was a good day (and given the past few weeks, that makes me feel good)  Starting sewing for the Amy Butler Weekender Bag, my goal was to finish it this weekend/ week.  And hopefully i’ll be able to make it cause i’d love to try it out this weekend when we go up north for skiing. 

Here are some of the progress pic’s from the bag.  So far its going well.  I’ve only broken one needle (i’ve read a lot of horror stories of people breaking several needles during the making of this bag (note to self, pick up more needles on way home tomorrow)  And so far everything has been easy to understand.  The worst part was all the cutting and prep work to get started. Hopefully it will be smooth sailing from here in.

(aka the steelers)  All in all it was a good day, (good dinner too – left over chilli and macaroni & cheese)

But clearly time for bed, shut things down start again tomorrow.
