Not a Cloud in the Sky!!

It has been a rather wet summer here in eastern Ky. and yesterday it just poured the rain, but today, there isn't a cloud in the sky(well, not this morning when I was out out walking my dog BJ). Gorgeous blue skies, cooler temps, an absolutely beautiful day for the first day of school.  Yeah, I can't believe it's that time of yr. already!!

I forgot to show you what else I made when I posted last, so here's my latest purse that I made a few wks. ago.  It was actually a free pattern on the internet for a TOTE, but I cut the dimensions down quite a bit to make it more 'purse' size.  I've had the fabric for awhile now, and thought it looked 'summery'.
 Here's an inside look.  I always like to add in some extra pockets.........(it's really not as pinkish as it's showing, more red).
 Then I made a little zipper pouch to match to carry all my small items in.........
 And of course, a little Kleenex pouch to match as well..........
 My hubby likes to take me somewhere different to eat for my b'day every year, so last wk. we all went on a little camping trip up in Ohio and had a ton of fun.  We took our future daughter-in-law w/us for the very first time and she absolutely loved it!!  So for my b'day dinner we chose this Mexican restaurant called, 'Don Pablos' in Springfield.  They only have about 3 in Ohio, I think, so we don't get to go there very often, but it's really good!!  The tortilla chips are twice the size of normal ones and their salsa has a bit of a 'kick' to it, but really really good!!
 On another day during our week, we came across this little restaurant called, "Hot Head Burritos" and it was really good too!  (can you tell we like Mexican food)??  It reminds me of a Subway, where you go through line and tell them each item you want on your burrito.  Man, were they ever delish!!  We ate them outside on the picnic table back at the camper, but if I'd known how good they were, I would have never agreed to 'split' one w/the hubster.
 My hubby said that the little 'head' in between the words reminded him of the movie, 'Castaway' w/Tom Hanks, where his character names the ball 'Wilson' and it looks like his hair is standing straight up.  Ok, well, that's what it reminded us of anyway ~ LOL
I'll be back soon w/more pics of our camping trip and some things I've been working on.

 Meanwhile, don't forget to hop over and take a look at all the new goodies that have arrived in my Etsy shop.  I've got a bunch of new patterns from Buttermilk Basin and a few other companies and I'm still working on getting the rest of them listed in the next couple of days.  (the new format states that I only ship to the U.S., however, I do ship internationally and have done it many times, so just wanted you all to know that in case of any confusion).

Chat soon ~ happy crafting!!

Happy belated birthday Tanya!
Your tote is awesome! Love the pink especially.

Yes! That hothead fella does look like Wilson.

Yesterday was too cold for me. With all the rain we've had this summer it just didn't feel much like Summer and here it is creeping up on Autumn already. SHEESH
