It’s nice to make something for someone and see them use it for the rest of their life. I may have made it a small challenge for my sister to get to the bag I made her, but I know that it will be one such item for her, and I can’t help but smile at that. That tuxedo cake from back at the end of January? It came back and tempted us all again, though this time in it’s birthday suit ( I’m sorry but I couldn’t resist the pun ).
I am now ready to travel the world in style and with class ( class from my suitcase and from my friends ) after I finished redoing the lining on the inside of my old, no longer dirty green suitcase. A little upholstery fabric and lot of spray glue later, it is finally travel ready once again. It was much easier to put the new fabric in than I thought it would be, and I got through with no mishaps. Well, except for one thing. The back of the bottle I was using clearly stated NOT to get any of the spray glue on your skin or in your eyes. So what’s the first thing I do?
I spray it all over my hands. Naturally. Now this is the same person who a week ago managed to cut their finger, on a door frame. That’s right everyone. I have talent.
One of the most wonderful things about living where I do is getting to see hot air balloons above my house in the spring and fall. And the sky, oh how beautiful the sky can be. I simply can’t imagine myself living some place where I wouldn’t be able to see the sky.
