I spent more time on Sunday sewing. Again, nothing on my to do list for April, but at least it is something that I've had fabric for since, oh, Black Friday. (Last year though, so not like it's been sitting around that long.)
I remember it was Black Friday when I bought the fabrics because I was wandering around, waiting for my number to be called at the cutting table. I don't usually walk through the home dec section because I don't have any projects needing that weight of fabric. But then I spotted the chickens on mustard yellow print. I knew exactly what I wanted to make with it once I saw it.
Awhile back, Cheri at I Am Momma, Hear Me Roar shared a pattern and tutorial for a purse she calls the Tohoku Tote. I fell for the style of it and filed it away in my head to make in the future.
I do love the purse and how roomy it is. The pattern is free, so it was worth sewing up.
Today, I spent some time shooting photos for my photography project. One of the pieces I have to create is going to be about my love of nature, so off to Buffalo River State Park I went.
I noticed when looking at the dried prairie grass that it is pretty close in color to my hair. Here's a photo for proof. Mine is a little darker, but after the summer, it will be dead on to the color of the grass.
I may take more in this theme for this project, and definately will take more just for fun.
Now, off to walk my dogs before work. Have a great day!
