Pockets to Go

I found this really cute pattern for making this fabric lined small totes. They are great for putting in notions and carrying small items. They are approximately 6" x 6".We even started carrying zippers at the store in a huge variety of colors to match whatever fabric you may have. Here is another prototype I made with two layers of Timtex inside instead of one and then I made one for April Mae!

Quick Vacation

We had so many great smallish vacations this year. We decided to break them up into a variety of different areas instead of one "large" vacation. So we did a snow trip and a Disneyland trip and just this past week went up to see my parents in Washington. 14 hour road trips can make for cranky passengers but it was worth it to see my folks. The weather was icky almost the entire time, but on the last evening the skies parted and the sun was out and we stopped at the Fox Island Bridge to take some great pictures after a family dinner at a restaurant in Gig Harbor. Here are some of those photos. And yes, I have been working on stuff, it's just been kinda slow.
