It's in the bag

I have officially fallen in love with all things Amy Butler . She has beautiful fabrics ( including home deco weight), patterns and ideas.
Goodbye Aprons, hello TOTES!

I just ordered her "Birdie Sling" Pattern from and am really hoping it is as "easy" as the pattern states it is. No it won't be too hard...I hope! Although I mastered the zipper on my Quiet Book, they still scare me. I will always select a pattern that has no zippers over one that requires them..Guess my early zippering experiences scarred me for life. I must have PTZD ( post traumatic zipper disorder). I am sure there are classes that could get me over my fear of sewing in zippers, but I'm not at that point in my sewing career yet. I can still avoid them..MOST of the time.

So, hopefully in a week or two, I'll be blogging photos of my Amy Butler tote!

Sewing rocks!

Oh and before I forget..Thank you to Nolan's mommy, Ashley for nominating my blog for an award. The award is for blogs that make you happy. I know mine isn't full of sunshine and puppies and rainbows, but I am very appreciative that my blog makes someone smile from time to time. Here are blogs that make me happy that I would like to nominate for the continuation of this award:
