This month has been crazy busy, and I thought I was going to have time to sew. Ha!
There was a pretty important birthday.
A few swap blocks.
A sewing class at BonBon.
And this little problem. Roeland Park is doing a much needed storm drainage project and in the process my old ass pipes burst from the water being turned on and off. They did burst under the kitchen sink,not at the faucet, but in order to fix them the plumbers (who were awesome and affordable) had to break my tile backsplash. We found my old pipes encased in concrete...yes, concrete. So now I have this little problem. How do I insulate these new pipes so they will survive a Kansas winter? Concrete seems messy. I was thinking great stuff, that spray on foam? Any ideas? And please don't tell me to just redo the cabinets and countertops. The only thing that my smaller than small kitchen has going for it is that it has it's original charm.

I got a real life visit with a friend from Savannah when I was in Orlando a few weeks ago. She was telling me that she was looking for a giant bag to take to the beach and how she wasn't happy with anything she was finding. Then she asked if I would make her one. I am a sucker and said sure, but she would have to do an IKEA fabric run on trade. That's when we discovered that there is an IKEA in Orlando! Field trip ensued. I got a few textiles and she got the stuff to make her bag. It is really big...I hope not too big. I mailed it out and hope she got it in time for her birthday this week. This bag should enjoy many trips to Tybee and the cruise planned for October. It was great to see you friend and I hope you like the bag.
