Updates from the Sewing Lair

Just a quick update to let you know that I've been super busy in my sewing lair....   

New to the shop:  zipper pouches!  I created a total of 4, including this cutie for myself and have them priced at a measly $16.00 each.  With any luck (ha) they won't last long!

An oldie but goodie is the mug rug.  The shop has also been updated with a variety of mug rugs in all colors and sizes.  Priced at $5.00 each these are a steal.

Per my sister's request, I made my first fully lined bag for Elliot, cousin Nate and birthday boy Kael a few weeks ago.  Following a pattern from Chez Beeper Bebe, these bad boys only took a few hours each but are sure to get hours more of use from each of the boys getting one.

And last, but certainly not least, the beast is done.  This Bottled Rainbow quilt took months to create with each block commanding about 3 hours of work ... crazy?  Yes, I am.  But I absolutely love it!

Hey Waiter!

Hey Dad -

Remember how this weekend we were talking about how gross flies are because they puke on you every time they land on you? 

Well, I found a large, dead fly in my iced tea last night at a local eatery.  Not only did he likely puke all over the ice in my glass but he died there too and filled my cup with carcass germs.  I found him after I had already drank some of my tea.  I still throw up a little in my mouth when I think about it.

And?  The manager only comped my tea.

I hope your night was better.

You Win, Zuckerberg.

Something Sewn has been back on facebook for a little while now and has a gigantic pool of likers (read: 32).  Do you want to like me too?  Do you?  Oh goodie!  Go here.

What I didn't want to do was set up a profile for myself but it seems Mark Zuckerberg thinks otherwise and in order for me to fully utilize my Something Sewn fb page I need to be linked up to a profile.  Tricky, Mark.  For the last week I've been having a staring match with him and it hasn't seemed to help my cause.  I even used his name in vain a few times in an attempt to ruffle his um, leg hairs?  Nothing.

Today I caved and blinked my eyes.  Anna Seckman is back on facebook.

Damn you, Zuckerberg.

The Big 500

I've got super big huge news today, people:
This?  Right here?  Is my 500th post. 

I have had 500 things to share with you, tell you, let you know.

And, oddly?  I'm at a loss for today's post and have no words.
