I did sew a skirt a few days ago - I don't have any pics. With the left over fabric I made this clutch. It's a bit different than the one I have pictured in my head but I really really like it.
The inside is black and has really really stiff interfacing. I can't remember the name of it but it's almost like cardboard. The black portion of the outside is also interfaced with the same. I love the set in zipper. It was my first time putting one in and it went pretty well!
Today I also caught up on Project Runway. I don't have cable so I watch it online. All I have to say is I wish I had found out a lot sooner that I could watch it online!
Matilda likes it too! She got a little upset when I tried to move her but here she is watching and being in my way.

I love it! The cutest walrus ever! He's even holding a fish!
I've been crocheting quite a bit as I have found the starghan pattern - I'm hooked on it. I've started 3 already and haven't even finished one yet :) The camouflage one won't get finished - I went to the store to get more yarn for it but can't find that colorway anywhere! I guess that's okay because Matilda seems to like it how it is - every picture I took of it she was right there rubbing up on it.

This is what I got from my up stream partner. It's an upcylced pouch from a rice bag - amazing. Inside was pink fabric, lace, beaded ribbon, a cute pink flamingo button some cards and candy. Wow - everything was perfect - I love it ALL!
Here is a shot of the front
And the back - SO CUTE!I'm also in the softies swap from Crafty Daisies. I haven't put it in the post yet so I can't show you but it has to be in the mail by tomorrow so I'll show it soon.

Last weekend we went to see a moon tree - very cool - and after we went to a Pirates game - also cool. The trip took a while. We drove to southern Ohio for the moon tree then through West Virginia and into Pennsylvania. It was my first time in WV. I was very excited to see three states in one day and one very cool tree. If you are unfamiliar with moon trees you should visit this site. They started out as seeds that went to space aboard Apollo 14 on January 31, 1971. I didn't bring a camera but did have my phone so I took a few pics.
This is the moon tree - it has it's own fence
This is also the moon tree
Oh - and I made bacon

I've been spending a lot of time outdoors and not sewing - since I still don't have any purse frames the need to sew feeling just isn't happening. Here are some pics from my backyard/patio
This is what I managed to sew today - this was the only pic I took before my battery died. The inside is solid pink with a cell phone pocket and another little pocket. I like how it turned out. When I started it I had no plan and just started cutting strips of fabric and also found out that the fleece interfacing I got was not fusible so this was my first project with sew in interfacing.

Those were my last two purse frames. :( I'm surprised that those are so hard to find. No place has them locally. And for some reason - every time I make a card holder they come out in different sizes - I need to make some sort of pattern.
I received the BEST comment from a recent swap on Swap-Bot
I received your package today and was blown away. I almost cried they were so beautiful. You are an amazing crafter/artist. I wish I could give you thousands of hearts. I cherish what you sent me.When I read this I almost cried - It means so much when someone else - other than your mom - likes what you make. I really just wish I had taken a picture of what I made. It was for a swap based off this book. I made the Bag and the Make-up Bag. They were both really fun to make.
