This is our workstation. it can no longer be considered our dining room table b/c it has been covered with our hobby stuff for about a month now.. any time we eat we have to move my stuff... hopefully we will work out a space for a desk and a place to work on our hobbies simultaneously.....

the wavy bag is a fabric shopping bag and the green bag is a wristlet i sewed for kristin for her Bday..
This is what a Hipslinger/fanny pack.. I love it and already have someone who wants one.. a friend of mine just laughed and called me a dork but i know she is envying my new "hipslinger"
here is my brand new bag i just finished tonite... VERY PROUD OF THIS ONE. it took me a full week of sewing about a few hours a night. it is patchworked and quilted. that is why it took so long....
here are some of my projects for the past week or so... i sew usually every night after matt goes to work. I imagine that after he leaves I will find myself knee deep in projects to sew... i enjoy it though...

I have decided to start a blog simply for the opportunity to show off the things I am making and the things going on in my life.. I have finally found a hobby that I really enjoy and I really hope that it sticks around for a while. (a long while) It helps keep me sane while matt works and releives the tension from the day I had.
this picture is the first completed non clothing item i have done.. I got the pattern from a sewing forum. i have no clue why i cut the corners off. but i thought it was pretty good for my first attempt..
The second picture is of a modified version of the first wallet. I didnt take into account some measurements so i had to rip seams about 6 times but it turned out pretty good..
