New Goodies!!


So here are my new goodies.  I bought just a couple of things from Burgundy Buttons when they were having a 15% off everything sale on the same day that I found out I got my new job.  I think it was kismet.  Me a new job and a sale all on one day. YIPEE!

I don’t really have plans for everything.  I want to make a quilt for my daughter out of the the Riley Blake Summer Song fat quarters.  I don’t really know how yet but I am thinking of something like this.

I am working with the Robert Kaufman christmas fabrics right now so I will show that one soon.  And the for the rest of the Moda fabrics I’m really not sure.  I am thinking a simple square baby quilt with the Freebird charm pack and then we will see about the Tweet Tweet charm packs and jelly roll.

Oh, and in case you care my new job is going great.  They bought me shoes and a coat on Monday!  Well, steel toed shoes and a lab coat, but still I got to go shopping on company time with company money.  I think I am really going to like working for this company.  It is great to be back at work but I am really missing my snuggle time with my little girl.  She is actually at my mom’s for the week so I have two more days til snuggle time.

A New Purse And A New Job!!

I start my new job tomorrow so I figured I needed a new purse right?!!  I am so excited about this job it is finally a job in my field.  I will be a GC Chemist!!  I have been home for the last 5 years with my kids and recently decided I was ready to go to work.  And somehow I got so lucky and found an awesome job in like 2 weeks!!

But back to sewing……..So to celebrating getting this awesome job.  I bought some fabric, of course. :)  I’ll have pics soon.  But then I decided it was time for a new purse.  This purse is by and the instructions were fabulous.  I got the cheaper version with basically just pictures and some notes and it was perfect.  I saw this purse on another blog Mary of Pin, Sew, Press (I love her blog) and went and bought my own pattern and finally made my own purse!
