I made two more wallets as gifts. I don’t really know why I continue making these, they’re a bit excruciating. I think they turn out super cute, so I guess I will press on. Plus, I’ve finally found something I can make that boys like, too. Note exhibit A. The inside is lined with the cutest retro baseball print ever.
The green wallet is for Miss Bugheart. Her and I agreed to a swap and this wallet was part of my package. I made the little bug — the creepiest bug I could conjure — out of felt. She asked for a monochromatic wallet and this is about as monochromatic as things get around here.
I’ve been terribly absorbed in books lately, in the past week I’ve finished “The Time Travelers Wife,” “The Kalahari Typing School for Men,” and I’m half finished with “The Mermaid Chair.” All of which I highly recommend.
The quilt is almost finished, too. My dear, sweet Aja whisked me away to fabric land and I am now well on the way to having one completed square-ish quilt. Hooray!
