On a lighter note, I have been doing some fun things this summer and have really enjoyed the "free" time. Here's a peek into what I've been up to...
First up is a cover I made for my iPad [which I LOVE dearly]:
I used two pieces of Amy Butler fabric that I had leftover from my backsack project. The interior is lined with a coordinating fabric, even though you can't see it.
Unfortunately, I don't remember where I got the instructions, but I do have the measurements if you need them. I love this cover because, not only is it stylish....but the sides are made from a recycled notebook, so they are firm and will keep my baby safe and protected.
Next is another sewing project that I had on my to-do list for a long, long time.
We always use mats at Jazzercise and sometimes they can be a bit dusty, so I bought my own and, well, it needed a stylish bag....this project came from the "One Yard Wonders" book. Unfortunately, even with my husband's help (because he is the math mastermind) this pattern needed a bit of altering. Overall, I am very happy with it and my model was excited to pose for the picture. :)
And now for a bit of randomness:
Hubby's [famous] BBQ Chicken
Lights from the Hilton Hotel lobby
And lastly, a big celebration we enjoyed last week:My youngest daughter turned 8! We've had a good summer!! How about you?
