It's Hot!

I know it's strange - a midweek post - I had to call in sick to work due to a bout with conjunctivitis. I was hoping to get some work done on the City Tote. I did get a little bit done, but I'm sweating! I am one of the few people left without an air conditioner (I am so getting one this weekend!) so I had to cut my sewing time short. It's just too hot to be working with a steaming iron! I do think this bag is going to turn out cute though - I love the blue fabric with the white twill and I think the wooden button will be perfect for it. I know I had written that I was going to work on some clothing items, but it's just so hot and I like quicker projects. Although I'm hoping that once I get an air conditioner I can work on some sleeveless tops and a skirt or two.

I'd like to share some crafty items I have purchased over the last few days. I'm still waiting for them to arrive in the mail (I love ordering online - it's like getting presents in the mail!). I saw this fabric and had to grab it. I was planning to line a bag in it, but now I'm not quite sure. I do love it though. And how cute is this necklace? I can't wait to get it on! I ordered this book off of Amazon, not that I need any more craft books...but why not?!?! I saw this kit on Ellene's blog and I had to purchase it. She just opened her second shop and I was her first customer! And today I put in an order with Sublime Stitches. I had to get these Black Apple prints and I also got another Artist Series print and these craftopia prints. Oh wait, I also got a few patterns too. Can't wait to get started on them all!

Hope you are all staying cool!

It is so how here too! I am not getting much sewing done either. You must be so excited to get started on those new projects. Hopefully it will cool down and you can get to them.
