What a month!

This month has been a whirlwind and as soon as I catch my breath I will share as much as possible! Today I am sharing my finish for September.

This is the Aeroplane Bag by Sew Sweetness. As you may recall, I was making one for my Sewing Summit roommate and she made one for me.

This bag really was perfect as a carry-on, and I even got to keep it with me when hard-backed carry-ons had to be stowed underneath the plane.

Monica (buttoncounter) loves Russian dolls so I made sure to include many of them in her fabrics.

I had special fabric made with her name on the inside. I loved that fun touch!!

I will be back soon with the bag she made me, Sewing Summit highlights, and my many September makes!!

Linking up to ALYOF!!

Simple goal

My September goal for a finish is going to be very simple. I need to complete an Aeroplane bag. If I don't complete it, I will have no carry-on bag for my trip to Salt Lake City in two and a half weeks LOL.

I am going to Sewing Summit which is in it's third year. It is billed as a sewing and blogging conference. My hotel roommate and I (who are Flickr friends) decided to swap Aeroplane bags. Instead of shipping them, we will each use the one we made for the other person and swap at the conference :) I am so looking forward to this trip. I am going to meet so many online friends and will be surrounded by like-minded people for a whole weekend... so much fun is to be had!!

All that to say that I have no pictures yet because I haven't gotten very far with the sewing of said bag yet LOL... I will have pics by the end of the month for sure... probably before that LOL!
