This has been a restless day. I guess because I had been expecting to spend time with mom. Now I am bored too death. Richard is in the bed, because he had to get up at 1am to go to work. Andrew went to his Uncle Hoss's for the weekend and Hunter is in his room playing the playstation. I know this would be the perfect time for me to sew, but I'm just not in the mood.
I had planned on making a purse for me and mom both. Just like the one that I made for my sister back in October. This is Chantal's, it is the Gracie Handbag, by Lazygirl Designs. I made several things to go with it like, the Wonder Wallet, travel tissue case, eyeglass case, cosmetic bag, and checkbook cover. I don't know if I will make all of the for me and mom or not.
So I've had this brown paisley fabric for a while now and I have been saving it for the purses. It is just like the blue that I used on Chantal's. Today while I was out shopping, I ran on to these buttons. I went ahead and bought them, I thought they would match the fabric. I know it is hard to tell much about it in the photo but they match perfectly. I couldn't believe it, since I didn't have the fabric with me.
Anyway, I probably won't make them for a while. I have them on my list of things to do for 2008, so I still have plenty of time. I had actually thought about trying to rush and sew mom's to give her when she gets home, but then I just found out that my brother has bought her a new Coach purse, so I will wait and give it to her later, that way I can take my time on sewing it.
Our water had froze off yesterday, because it was sooooooo cold. So yesterday evening Andrew and Richard dug up the line and fixed it. This took them until after dark. Richard rushed to get in bed and back up for work at midnight. Then he got up to leave for work and the starter went out on his truck. So that put him in a bad mood. I picked up a new one for him today. So then today around 4pm, I had no water. I went out and looked under the house and I had water spraying everywhere. I turned the water off and waited for Richard. I knew with everything else going wrong he would throw a fit. So when he got home he fixed the water. Nothing major this time, some small piece had broke, he replaced it and now we have water again. Now he will get back up at 1am, go to work, and come home and work on his truck. It NEVER ends, does it?
