So its been a while but I have a good excuse. :) My finger has been in a splint for the last 3 weeks or so. It was a crafting project gone terribly awry. Who says crafting can’t be bad for your health? ;) Anyway, if you ever put on a snap wrong and have to try to pry that sucker apart again, do NOT, I repeat do NOT use a pocketknife as a prybar. Knife slid right over and stabbed straight into the side of my index finger. Talk about pain! Oh boy this one was brutal. Finger is numb on the top and right side, but you would think if it was numb it wouldn’t hurt, right? WRONG! Turns out that I didn’t dmg the bone but I sure dmged the nerve good, which keeps firing pain even if it doesn’t register feeling. Go figure. sighs. Not sure what the end result will be but feeling like this will never stop hurting. So its been hard to work on projects or type. I can finally start doing some typing when I take off the splint, but not for long periods of time.
I had to work on something tho or lose my mind so without further ado here are my newest projects. The first one I call “The Diva” totebag. I saw the fabric and it screamed a friend’s name so I just had to get some and make it for her. She loved it! This was my third bag like this and it came out the best so far.
The next project was my first ever zipper bag. Now before you make “that” face, I know there are lots of not so right things about it. I’m having a hard time trying to do quilting without the bottom puckering and this was my first ever zipper so it was its own learning curve. While it doesn’t look great, it does work and thats a win as far as I’m concerned. lol
Lastly, I love, love, love this project. It was a lot of fun doing it and I think it came out really cute. I’d like to make more of them as I get pots.
I’ll be back again soon. Hope you enjoyed the little catch-up. :)
