This past week I was in Newfoundland for a total of 35 hours. I flew in at 9:15am on Wednesday morning and flew home at 8:00pm Thursday night. Let's not talk about the turbulence on the way home Thursday night. It's the first time I've ever been that freaked out on a plane.
I was in NL for my annual trip to the student career fair. I spent Wednesday night talking to students in various stages of their program and I spent Thursday having one-on-one interviews with students who will be graduating in the spring.
Surefire way to get a pouding headache? Spend an entire day doing interviews. And drink more coffee than you usually do!
Friday morning, after getting to sleep in for the first time since last Saturday, Mr. Happy and I took a trip out to a local fabric store where I bought some things that I needed to make this:
Forgive me, Knitters, for I have sewed.
Pattern: "Wasp Bag" from Machen Machen.
Fabric: lightweight denim exterior, lightweight cotton interior.
The instructions confused me a little, but the design is easy enough for an inexperienced seamstress like moi to figure out.
I made a freezer paper stencil of the Minou silhouette that Angela sent to me.
Now I just need some glittery buttons for the handles.
I am so fricking excited about this thing. You have noooo idea.
