I am leaving this morning. 9.09.09. And we will try our hardest to be out the door at 9:09 am. Has a nice ring to it. My dad and I will drive up to Amsterdam, spend the night and a good portion of tomorrow there visiting the city, and take a ferry tomorrow evening. It's an all night ferry and we arrive (land? dock?) in Newcastle in the morning. From there we drive to Edinburgh. Wooohooooo! Road trip!! Haha.
I have been soooo busy I wanted to post this but somehow couldn't find the time. AND I didn't get to go into the shop a second time! :( Anyhoo, here it is. The Amy Butler Birdie Sling that I made as a laptop and techno bag, but also as a regular carry-all. When my laptop's not in it of course. To anyone who is wondering: it fits the 13 inch MacBook perfectly with enough room for cables etc. I had read some other blogs where people agreed. So it seems that the original pattern will indeed fit a MacBook, and not simply that I botched up the pattern and it ended up being the right size. :) :) :)
Main body is a flannel turned inside out. The "wrong" side of the flannel is still softer than normal cotton but I have the feeling that it won't ball up after time like the flannel side would. I love it. The accents are Recess by American Jane for Moda.
I could spread this lining on a cracker and gobble it up.
Leftover Freshcut from my poof (see post below). AND embroidery floss for a top project I've been working on for waaaay too long.
With moving comes organizing. You would not believe (I didn't) the amount of delicious jewelry supplies I actually had sitting on my jewelry table, buried under other supplies and notes to myself. It's crazy! Seeing them all like this gives me craftin' itch. Which may sound a bit repulsive on first hearing, but I promise it's nothing like jock itch.
The last night of schwesterly goofiness for a while. Don't I look ready to go learn big important stuffs?
