Good News, Good News!! We were given an offer on our house last week, counter offered and it was accpeted on Satuday. We are now in the 4th day of the option period (7 days). The home inspection is tomorrow, so we are keeping our fingers crossed that all goes well with it. We’re pretty sure our house will have no problems, but you never know with those very maticulous inspectors.
So, with the house sale under way, we have TONS to do! My list keeps getting longer, and longer. We are planning a garage sale this weekend to rid ourselves of lots of junk and extra weight so that we will have less to move across TX, NM and into AZ. PLUS, my darling little sister’s wedding is the weekend after we plan to move and I have volunteered to do the invitations (done), thank you cards, rehearsal dinner invites, the tossing bouquet, best wishes cards, and the wedding programs. Plus, there are gifts to be made, projects that need to be finished before we move, and books that need to be read. Yikes!!! I’d better get moving! But, something happens to me when my plate gets piled too high. I become paralyzed and unable to do any projects on my ‘to do’ list. Instead I do things like make this bag (that I totally don’t need right now). I just couldn’t help myself though. I saw Moki’s tutorial and could do nothing else until I made one.
The bottom was a green striped placemat (from a yard sale $.25) and I just happened to have this leaf print that went perfectly with it. I left the corner flaps on the outside and sewed them to the sides to create the square pattern and fringe. I love the way it turned out. Thanks Moki for the great tutorial! Now I need not look at anything else on this freakin’ computer or I will be very easily distracted!
