So. my kids are wanting special Halloween costumes this year. My daughter wants to be a “Rose Princess,” she loves all things royal, pink, and sparkly. So we were looking online, trying to find pretty dresses for her, and we came across the Costumer’s Guide. My daughter is only four, so I immediately thought of Kirsten Dunst in “Interview With a Vampire,” and the lovely dresses she wore. As we were trolling through, looking at the dresses, her eyes were cast upon Christine’s dress in … read on, Fisherboy »
I am continuing on with my obsession of bags. For some unknown reason, I cannot get them out of my head. I’ve mentioned before that I don’t like bags, and typically don’t carry them, so why I’m obsessing over them right now, I cannot figure out. I’e been drawing designs like crazy, and my poor sewing machine is getting a workout.

So, we recently discovered that our local grocery store would give us money off our grocery bill if we brought in our own bags to stuff our purchases in. Now, we’re pretty good at “going green” – we recycle and it’s pretty much habit now to separate our trash as we go along, we carpool, and we try to remain conscientious about what we’re doing to reduce our carbon footprint and output.
Don’t get me wrong, we aren’t “tree huggers” either – but I do think we try … read on, Fisherboy »
I’ve had a knitting bag design in my head for a while, once that I’ve improved upon as I got more and more into knitting. I finally drew a schematic down in my moleskine, and sewed it up for myself. It didn’t come out as well as I’d liked, but it was a good first attempt…
