It's over!

My husband has been working on a project the past couple of weeks and he's pretty much come home only to sleep. Isn't that ridiculous? Yes, I think so, too. Well, after working a 23 hour shift, he was able to present it to his boss this morning. woohoo, we get our husband and daddy back home!

In sewing news, I made the Amy Butler Sling Tote over the weekend. It was very quick and easy to sew after I cut out the hundred pieces and ironed on the interfacing on every piece. I think I'm am going to send this off to my partner for the tote bag swap. Above is a picture of the inside, it has 3 pockets, and here is a close-up of the fabric ....

Okay, I think this picture has convinced me to start my weight watchers back up. Beware, wide load below:

I saw them this morning... all I can say is WOAH... they looked tired. I am glad they made it and we know all to well how those deadlines and late nights take their toll on the family. Hopefully things will get back to some kind of normalcy here before too long. Hang in there!

Speaking of which... dinner Friday?
we will have to run to Sam's afterwards but I think we are good to go this week if you guys are free.
