I want to make this!

I am just dying to make this Weekender Travel Tote bag for my mom!  I don't know why, it just looks like the perfect bag for her.  And I would LOVE to have it made for her by Mother's Day, but I'm not seeing it, since I don't have my sewing machine, I haven't chosen any fabrics yet, and I don't actually own a table of any kind to put my sewing machine on :-(

Sew Spoiled is hosting a Sew-Along that extends much past Mother's Day, but it's not too late to get in on the action!  Just pick out your fabrics and post pictures to their Flickr group by tomorrow!  Now I just have to find some JoAnn Coupons and pick out some fabric..not to mention find my sewing machine and a table to put it on :-)

I miss the Internet!

Now that we are nearly moved into our house...I am realizing just how much I miss having the internet!  We're not sure yet when we will be getting it either :-(   So my apologies for never being around.  I'm trying to get some posts set up to post on a a schedule, but It's proving hard, since I don't have my sewing machine set up yet and I can't find my camera and I at least half my stuff is still stashed in boxes in the garage!  But I keep chipping away at it and soon I'll be all set, I hope!

As soon as I can find my camera, I'll post pictures of my new craft room (before pics anyway).  I'm sure that it will be a work in progress for some time yet.  But I can't wait to get in there and get working!

House Update!

We finally closed on our house on Monday!  We are so excited to be moving in TOMORROW!  YIKES!

We've been busy all week cleaning and prepping for painting.  So far we've got the kitchen cabinets cleaned out, the pantry prepped for painting, the master bedroom prepped for painting, and the bathrooms cleaned and the upstairs bath is prepped for painting.

My mom is coming over tonight to help us paint, so we should be able to get the bedroom and the pantry closet painted, we are hoping to get the front hall closet prepped and painted too!

Then the plan for tomorrow is to lug around some furniture and boxes - hopefully the rain will hold off and we'll be able to get everything moved in!

Hopefully, I'll be able to get back to crafting in not too long - I miss my sewing machine already!
