One of my new sewing books had a picture of zipper sewing that lifted my fear of giving pouch making another try.

I was prepared with books, materials, and energy. There was plenty of free time during this holiday weekend.

Cooler weather makes my hands fidgety, and my psychi brings forth memories of women in my family that had the affinity to work with yarn.

We are having a cold spell in the desert and it was nice to be in the backyard and do some cutting for projects to be worked on later.
I used this material for everything. There's the checkbook cover, the eye cover for sleeping, and the bathroom organizer.

I finally got myself sewing even if for 1 hour only, in the afternoon. It was sunny and very quiet.
While at it, I made a bag, most likely to go to Grasshopper's teacher who has been pretty cool and supportive.
My heart smiles, I breath deep and feel accomplished.

Grasshopper gets bored easily. We were discussing pumkins so I decided to we should have fun on Halloween, as I used to have when the girls were toddlers.
Grasshopper started working on some of her decorations.
Tomorrow The Halloween box will come down and I will be all warm and fuzzy inside.
In the desert, Fall is created 'cause it just doesn't happen quite like I want it to.

I reached the point where I was no longer afraid to tackle that tote pattern and begin the process of creating my tote bag.
My bag. It's 10 years of wishing finally coming true.

When you zoom around in the world of craft blogs, much is discovered. I leaned about fabric.com and signed up for the daily specials email.
Maybe I'll venture into the land of lined bags.

We have been busy with the backyard, but there is always a little time for sewing.
Finished the red fleece poncho. I have to find more pink pom pom border to finish the pink one.
