So, much to my dismay, I've run completely out of the gray brushed cotton used to make the fabulous Fraulein Tote. I've searched high and low to no avail. I'm trying out a few new materials for the bag (actually, I think they'll make terrific substitutes). I should have a few posted by the end of the weekend.
I've also, just started a new batch of the duffel. They're really nice!
I purchased a hand press to attach snaps and rivets. I'm pretty excited about it. The new duffel's will have really nice snaps and perhaps a rivet or two!
Enough about materials. I took this photo while we were swimming on the banks of the Connecticut River. There's an amazing spot you can steal away to, complete with a rope swing, sand and a lounging tree. I love living in Massachusetts.
There were no disasters today. Just, a lot of hard work. And! I'm now completely caught up, which means I can work on some new designs. The last 2 weeks have taken a lot out of me. I'm ready for the tides to turn.
In other news, I'm hoping to head up to Keene, NH this weekend. I heard they are having a fall festival with some crazy amount of Jack-O-Lanterns....26,000! And they're lighting them all! I'm so there.
