Like A Breath Of Fresh Air.

Now lovelies, I did not mention it but I've been working with approximately 9 minutes of laptop battery life for longer than I can remember. My battery was recalled so I finally got a new one (free of charge. yay!) Working on the computer was a real hassle because the cheap replacement battery charger that I had just would not stay connected. So today with a new battery charger and a new battery I have 3 and a half hours of battery!!! That is 3 hours and 21 minutes more than I have had in at least 6 months!

I have my sewing machine out (we got a little table last week) and I am working on a new project. I switched from the Coats thread to the Mettler thread and now I am having stitch problems. If you have any suggestions, I could really use them.

This Amy Butler Vintage Backpack Tote is for an expectant mother who lives with her husband and adorable one year old in Jerusalem. I figured it would be nice to have a backpack with two little ones in tow. I am also planning to make her a matching head scarf and maybe some toys or blankets for the kids. We will see. The fabrics above are the outer main panels, lining and outer side panels of the bag. Hey Hugs! xox=vv.


  1. Ha ha ha! I had the same battery problem for the longest time. But not because of a faulty battery but because it was old and worn out and needed to be replaced. So I know just what you mean.

    And I must be tired because I just read the sentence about the Amy Butler Vintage Backpack Tote. I got as far as expectant mother and was confused thinking Hmm Amy Butler advertises this tote for expectant mothers? Why can't I have one if I'm not expectant? Then I kept reading. Duh I'm goofy!

  2. you're so sweet. i wish i could help you with the thread problem, but i don't know a darn thing about sewing. glad to see you're sewing! will you be sharing the results with us? i'd love to see it when you're done. good luck with the thread issues!
