It Begins!

Finals are over! I'm packing my project bags and getting ready to get started. Of course, life happens, and now I have to get a tooth fixed - not a fun prospect, but it has to happen soon. I have to count my blessings that I live in family housing right now, with dental and med students all over. Our next door neighbor is done with dental school and is working on his specialty, so when we have "tooth" issues, we just ask him. This is my problem tooth, the one I've already had a root canal in. It chipped last fall and they told me to get a crown. Well, crowns are expensive and we've put it off. It chipped again yesterday (in the middle of my accounting final, thank you Skor bar) and now it has to get taken care of. Grrr. But once that is out of the way, bring on the projects!

And, of course, I've found more projects - these turtles on Etsy. Laurel loves playing with the Beanie baby turtle at my mom's house and wants one of her own. A $4 pattern can get her a whole family of turtles - we'll just use up scraps!

Umm, I have a thing for bags. I love having them around. I really like this one:

And this one, from

A felt doll from purl bee too:

And I think these should be my Christmas gifts this year for everyone - re-useable shopping bags. Or apple picking bags. Or whatever bags (would probably end up being a project bag at my house!). Also from purl bee.

The aprons will get done first - promise. And I have a picnic blanket to work on. And some baby blankets. And other things. We'll see how productive I am this week. I'm so excited to not have to do homework, other work doesn't sound like work. Sounds more like fun. I LOVE summer vacation!

You are a very ambitious girl! I can't wait to see your finished projects. Em is making a quilt for her baby cousin right now. She's much more brave than I am.

I've been tossing around the idea of switching to re-usable shopping totebags too...I like all 3 patterns here.

Really, don't we all love a little validation?
