My computer is working again!!!

Well, I'm finally getting around to posting my blog from yesterday! My computer still isn't working right, but Nate (wonderful man that he is) found a way around it for me. So, here goes.....

It's raining today..... again! I know we need it, and I'm not the biggest fan of sunshine, but it's been like 7 days in a row. I'm just sick of grey! :( Thank God for my little patch of green in the front flower bed.... You can't really see them, but there are little lavender flowers on those bushes..... they make me smile! :)

So, since it's raining I'm inside (like I'd really be outside if it wasn't raining!), anyways, like I said, I'm inside, drinking my coffee....

Babysitting Payton's Webkinz..... they need lots of attention, this is gonna be the focus of most of my day.....


Folding some laundry.... the job that never ends. (as I type this I have 3 more loads to fold! UGH!).....


And thinking about making Zoe's teacher an end of the year gift. She loves dolphins and keeps commenting that if Vera Bradley made a dolphin tote bag she'd be all over it. What is it with teachers and Vera Bradley? I swear every teacher at our school has at least 2 Bradley bags. It's crazy!
So, I'm thinking.... I'm crafty... maybe as crafty as Vera Bradley (I just don't have the outstanding marketing team that she has), and I can make a tote bag, with dolphins on it. HA! Easier said than done, NOBODY had dolphin fabric... I had to order this online. I was scared.... I've never ordered fabric online... would it be what I wanted? Would I be able to find matching fabric? Would it really look like dolphins or maybe some kind of demented whales? Well, relax.... It was great. I bought this brown dotted swiss cotton from Joann's to go with it. It's BEAUTIAS!!!

So, forgive the lighting, but here it is, and I have to say, "It's darn cute!"






I even made my own shrink plastic dolphin buttons....



Oh, and a matching keyphob (isn't that what they're called?), with a matching button on it!



Okay, I don't like to brag, but to steal fro Elsie Flannegan... "HOLY CUTE!"
I love it!
Hope you're having a great day, I am!
Love ya,
J

Okay I'm bowing down to you as you know how to read a sewing pattern! I sew straight lines and looking at any form of sewing pattern makes me ill. They are so intimidating!

The bag is FABULOUS! Great job!
