We're Moving!

Well, I hope Kingman is ready for us, because we are so ready for it! Ammon has a new job there and we are really looking forward to moving, starting the new job, have a rental house instead of an apartment, and meeting new people. Yes, it is a lot hotter than it is here in Payson, but they do have swimming pools and air conditioning there. If you want our new address just let me know.

We are currently packing up all of our belongings, we bought a fridge, and our apartment is in chaos. I'm not really looking forward to the fact that we are moving the day after my birthday, because we will probably be too stressed out to even notice the significance of the day. We'll just have to celebrate early. We're moving!

Sew, Mama, Sew

One of my favorite websites has become the Sew, Mama, Sew blog. Not only are there great tutorials and free patterns, but when people make comments, they create a link to their personal websites, so there are hundreds of other fun sewing blogs to scan and get great ideas and tips from. The blog has great sewing tips, giveaways, and tons of other fun project ideas. I visit the site daily, and am still finding fun new things to do! I definitely suggest stopping by for a visit, though I warn you that it may turn into a few hours glued to the computer screen.

Fun Purse

I found a pattern for a really cute purse in Threads Magazine, so I decided to make one for myself. I already had some cute material, so all I had to get was the sew in stabilizer. It didn't take long, and was a fairly simple pattern to follow, though I did have to get out my seam ripper when I messed up on the binding. I love how it turned out, and especially how quickly it all came together!
