New Sewing Space
Yesterday my mom and dad came over and set this desk up here in the cottage. It's not really supposed to be a sewing table, but my mom wants to start painting with watercolors this fall. In the meantime it makes a great space to work while I am still here. It is so wonderful to look out at the lake, watch the black squirrels, chipmunks and humming birds right out of the window. I couldn't imagine a more perfect place. Makes me wish I had a nice place to sew at home, but one day...
At the moment I am trying my hand at sewing the Weekender Travel Bag from an Amy Butler pattern. I need it to use as a carry on for my trip home as I gave the one I had to my husband before he left. I gave it away to force myself into this challenge of making my own! I have been intimidated to sew bags previously, so I am excited to be tackling something new and challenging.
