It's a Girl!

Ok...I heard a couple weeks ago that my best friend will soon be a grandmother.  I'm so excited for both Natalie and Jenny!  I couldn't wait to start sewing.  Here's what I've done so far.

A diaper bag,
two receiving blankets,
a changing pad,
and two bibs.

Close up of the bag...

Laptop Bags

Even though I've been really lazy about blogging, I haven't been completely lazy about crafting.  So, maybe I'll try to catch up over the next few days.  Here are a couple of laptop bags that I made.

A Thousand Splendid Suns

When I read a good book by a new author, I always have mixed emotions when anticipating the next book.  Because I enjoyed The Kite Runner, by Khaled Hossseini, I eagerly awaited the release of A Thousand Splendid Suns.  And, I purchased it back in 2007 shortly after it was released.  But here's the problem:  I always worry that I won't enjoy the second book as much as the first.  So, even though I had heard excellent reviews, I left the book laying on the to-be-read pile beside my bed for nearly two years.  Well, I finally picked it up...and to my delight, A Thousand Splendid Suns was even better than The Kite Runner.  I highly recommend it!
