There was a bright spot during my sickness... Valentines Day! My hubby got me the best present ever. A new sewing cabinet!! Its great because it folds out and has a shelf for my serger. I was so excited when it got here that I put it together all by myself in about 4.5 hours, all while being sick.
My other arrrrgh is much more exciting, however. I finally got back on the creative train to make something new and had a brilliant idea. I was sitting at my new sewing table and was messing around with some red plaid canvas with the vague idea to make a lunch bag, when the idea came to me. I was going to make a reversible pirate tote bag, with the red flannel pirate material I still had.
As soon as I can take some better pictures, I'll be posting it on Etsy. Even though I'm really fond of the bird purse, I'm pretty sure this is my favorite item so far!
