Back to the Salt Mines

So, I’ve survived my 1st week back teaching. I love teaching, but I also love making stuff, I just wish there were more hours in the day! I managed to get all the canvas dyed & cut for 20 new bags: 5 each of all 3 sizes of messengers & grab n’gos. All that work looks like this:

Fabric for new bags, all labelled & stacked.

Next, I’ll cut interfacing & batting, then fuse the back of all these pieces. Only then can sewing actually start. The hope is that I can owrk about an hour a day on this pile, as I’ve got a big show coming up in mid-october. Today, I’ve got to dye webbing for all the handles.

Our 3/4’s grown Sheltie named Stirling does NOT like to swim in our pool, but he tries to be as close as possible to the boys when we’re swimming, so he’s always running around the edge. Look what the boys managed to to with him last night:

Beleive it or not, that looks like a happy Sheltie!

Believe it or not, that looks like a happy Sheltie!
