Today I turned 42 years old! Wow I cant believe it sometimes and then other times I am grateful that I have reached this age. Anyways avoiding all the getting older sayings and such I decided to sit down today to sew. I have been feeling in a bit of a slump with my knitting lately, and have been wanting to do something for myself so thought today would be the perfect opportunity while the kids were at school and Paul was at work to get busy on the sewing machine. I won the pattern for this bag a year or two ago and never used it, but today I decided to go through my fabric stash and pulled out some fabric I had from Hollabee and some linen for the lining and decided to try my best. I have to say this bag is supposed to be reversible but the lining side has one or two tiny creases along the top seam so it will be staying on this side forever! I really love this fabric and the circles are more of a rasberry red instead of the color above. It has plenty of room as I made the larger size messenger bag instead of the smaller one. I have already emptied my bag and filled this one up for permanent use. The best thing is I can pop a project bag inside so my knitting can come along with me instead of having to carry 2 or 3 bags of things I want when I visit my parents place!

Okay I am waiting for Paul to arrive home with my flowers and then I am going birthday shopping. I think I might have to buy myself some chinese for dinner and watch a dvd! I hope you all have a fabulous happy weekend with lots of sunshine!!
