Show Time!

Due to a series of fortunate events, (a last minute cancellation and I was invited to take the cancelling party's place), I had the opportunity to see Legally Blonde - The Musical at the Appleton PAC. I am not going to pretend to be an expert on musicals, but this was really a high energy show that didn't slow down until the last bows were taken.

If you happen to read this "Cancelling Party", you missed a very good show.

I "Bag" Your Pardon

Ohhhh, so maybe my post title wasn't the best pun, but I think working on all these bags is affecting me.

My current project is 13 tote bags (photos above) that will be approx 12 wide x 10" tall x 3" deep. They will have an interior zipper pocket and a regular pocket. I had thought about putting a zippered divider pocket in these like the Becky Bag has, but I didn't want to take up any space in the main area, so they could be filled with a lot of stuff!

I am working on the linings and am hoping to have them complete in the next couple of weeks.

Stella of the Desert

I had originally wanted to post pictures of my current project (but I actually have to have pictures in order to post them), a group of tote bags, but I received this photo this morning from the woman who adopted Stella, this cute clothesline helper. I am really enjoying the vegetation in this image as I live in Wisconsin and don't see much desert growth around here.

I have my first summer show coming up on 6/12, which seems like forever away, but I think it's only (gasp) 9 weeks and I have soooo much to do, including another set of clothespin bags.

I Heart Vintique

You can now find my stuff in one of the coolest shops in downtown Neenah, WI - Vintique!

It's Tortoise Weather!

It's finally warmed up around here - in fact it's been warm enough to let Buzz, the Russian Box Tortoise, outside (under adult supervision of course).

I also celebrated the warm weather by hanging my swing up. Things got a little out of hand when I broke out a brewsky (Sam Adams Blackberry Witbier - similar to Leinie's Berrywiess, but not so sweet) and a new flyer from Joann Fabrics.

Our backyard is fenced in, so if I'm out, I usually let the fuzzies out too. Orvis came by the swing to hang out, but refused to look at the camera.
