A bit of sewing

It's so incredibly dry here.  There has been no significant rain for weeks.  When you stand on the carpet and touch the light switch, you get a shock.  Reach down to pet the dog, and, youch, a shock.  Yesterday I pulled my fleece sweatshirt over my head and I saw a thousand popping flashes of light as the material dragged across my hair creating static. Shocking.
Instead of rain, we have brisk cold, blue skies and crunchy leaves. Good walking weather.  Also nice light for taking pictures.
 I finally got some stolen moments at the sewing machine and put together a couple of market tote bags based on this pattern.  The fabric was cut out weeks ago, but I just haven't had time to put them together until today.  I'm itching to sew more now.  Those bags were just the appetizer.  After Christmas, I want to sew up the main course.


  1. I hate that shocking weather!!! You sure described it perfectly too. Especially, the pulling a sweatshirt over head, and seeing a small fireworks show! I hate that!!!
    Love the market totes. Must try to find a minute or two to check that pattern out, and maybe even make a few.

  2. Wishing you and yours Lynne a magical Christmas time...Merry Merry Christmas!
