I am, surprise surprise, in the midst of many projects.
I have been working day and night.
Well, not that hard.
I do have multiple sewing and knitting projects that I can place in the active column.
First, I am working on Eastlake from the new Norah Gaughan book Woodland Gothic.
This is a picture of the back.
In a reaction against the licensed character and princess backpacks that abound at the Target, I have decided to make the Elder Hug-a-Bug a school bag, she won't let me say backpack for some reason.
Here is a picture of the front and back.
The main fabric is corduroy, and the lining is a fantastic Kokka print with pigs, apples and birds that I scored in the remnant bin at Treadle.
This disaster area is my sewing table, I know, you can hardly see it beneath all of the, let's just say it, Crap.
There are at least 3 pieces of clothing needing mending, the Beatrix Potter quilt that has yet to be quilted because I used too lofty a batting and I need to take it apart, again, the yarn for many small projects, and the backpack stuff.
I am also working on a secret project that is delicate enough that I can't work on it while the Hug-a-Bugs are awake, for fear of their globby hands and feet.
With all of that on the docket, what else could I do tonight, but bake chocolate chip cookies.
I even had plenty of dough to freeze for future cookie jonesing.
Don't get too bogged down out there,
