I Know, I Know...

I said I would blog each day and some days I write 2 blogs, and others (like yesterday) I don't even write one. Let me get you up to speed...

Yesterday we sold our house! Woot! I was a little busy with the "serious" talks and offers/counter offers, faxing, printing aspects, but the bottom line is we sold our house and each have signed on the bottom line of the contract! The house won't close until mid-July, but we are almost through! A one home owner again! Woot!

Today, I finished Sam's teacher gift...a tote. I put file folders and empty binders on the inside, water bottles and snack in the outside pockets on the left, and pencil cases and other supplies in the outside pockets on the right. I wrote a little orange tag and note and tied it with a yellow grossgrain ribbon and left it in the teachers room for her.

I worked on Owie's felt today for the majority of the day, and also sewed/altered a curtain for my sister-in-law and ran it up to her so I wouldn't forget/loose it in the pit of a sewing room.

And JH...here is a horrible picture of the wrap skirt. It is SUPER easy and I can take pictures of the tie mechanics if you need them, that was the only remotely tricky part. I wore mine on Sunday with a cami and funky green sweater to church.

Here is another picture of something fun...my grandmother always picked up driftwood and took it home and polished it. Some of her drfitwood was massive, some really small, some looked like birds or other objects, and some weird just plain weird. When my Mom and Dad arrived the other day she had this little piece in her suitcase. I love it! It matches my beach bathroom so well!

Okay Cara, I WANT A TOTE! That is so darn adorable. What can I do to get one? I will even send material and anything else! Have fun at the Street Fair and I am going to have to try the onions for Eddie.
