Hello blogworld friends! How has your week (or two) gone? Mine has been pretty good. I have succeeded in getting most of my kids back into school...I say most because the college kids are confusing me as to whether they are in or out. I can't tell. Seems like they are still around most of the time...especially when hungry or have laundry to be done, or out of toilet paper:)
I must say that it does feel good to have a little bit more structure in our schedule, but I'm not sure I am liking the super early mornings that have hit me like a giant baseball bat to the head. You know what I'm talking about? I went to bed at 2:45 last night, and the 6:15 alarm was a rude awakening. Literally. I'm going to be good and go to bed tonight before midnight. But it's sooo hard! The peace and quiet of the nighttime hours is so hard to come by, I just have to enjoy it for a while before my head hits the pillow.
So...in other news, I got a hold of some of my Fiona's Fancy fabric (that is not yet in stores), and it has been really fun to play with! I needed to reprint a couple of my pattern covers anyway, so I decided that Fiona's was going to help me with that. It's a true fall line, with richer colors and more depth to update your fall/winter wardrobe and accessories with. This is my beautiful daughter-who-isn't-really-my-daughter Demi (my daughter's best friend who basically lives with us)...modeling the Bellanca Bag "A-La Fiona's Fancy" in the blush colorway.
I love this bag, and it has been a customer favorite since it first came out. It makes a great diaper bag for the busy Mom, as well as just a perfect sized carry-all for all of us busy girls who need some serious space for all our stuff.
I'll be choosing one of these shots for the new cover look for the Bellanca bag pattern, so be watching for that. If you haven't tried making this bag yet, you really should!
Check back soon for the Peasant Blouse remake and a giveaway!!
Now off I go to do the laundry and the dishes and the chauffeuring...be back soon.
