Okay, so I’m slowing down a bit.

I think Mike is worried.
Eh.
I’m not.
I figure I’ll go to the fair with everything I have and not stress about things that I didn’t get to do.
It’s all supposed to be fun and enjoyable and I don’t need to pressure myself with thoughts of bringing 100 purses.

I think it’s just ’cause my energy is zapped.
I’m totally blaming the heat.
Even though we have the air conditioning.
Which, thank the good Lord.

So anyways, here is the weekend’s accomplishments.

Swirly!

Stars and stripes, my way.

This one I really like, it’s so autumnal from the outside, but springy and vibrant on the inside. The front picture is actually a functioning pocket.

Probably my favorite of this bunch. It has that great brushed chocolate twill (feels like suede!) with a bright cheery flowered lining. The straps have nickel d-rings for added interest.
