Ack! I got an email from Sew Mama Sew asking me to make sure they got my name right for their judges in the Bag Month Contest, and jeez, there are some nice bags in the running. So much better than my silly tote, I'm a little embarrassed. It's not that I thought it was anything special, the contest just happened to be going on when I was working on a bag, so I thought, what the heck.
So distract myself from feeling foolish, here are some fun things to check out...
I just saw these awesome ellips shelves on Curbly, and they include measurements... oh Mi-ike...
Amanda at every little thing posted about a hilarious Church Sign Generator.
I adore (and very possibly might steal) Kelli's idea for map cards.
Who doesn't need a Diabolical Hot Dog tee?
I've started thinking about Christmas gift ideas, and came across this post, and was wondering if anyone knew of a good pattern for this for a beginning knitter.
Amy of Happy Things created this gorgeous quilt, and even included a tutorial.
I'm thinking of getting myself a Sigg bottle, maybe this one.
The Handmade Parade has set a date for the fall fair, so mark your calendars and make sure you're at the Coffee Garden in Sacramento on October 13.
And we're going to the Berkeley Kite Festival on Saturday. We went several years ago and had a really great time. They had huge kites the size of cars and kites that rivaled the Blue Angels. We even got to make kites of our own. It's free (but you pay to park), and if anyone is in the area, I definitely recommend checking it out.
And here's the original picture I cropped to enter my tote in the contest, just so you see how silly it really is...
