The Long Weekend is My Friend

Though I didn't get as much sewing done as I'd have liked, I was able to make a few things over the 3-day weekend. I've added a new shopper tote to iSew.


I put together a little quilted case for our new camera using all scraps & leftovers.


We went on a couple mini road trips. First to Healdsburg for a walk and a yummy breakfast. We visited a great shop called the Olive Leaf. There were so many great things to see in this place. Nick was hesitant to go in, but in the end I was waiting for him to leave. ;)

Nick spotted these vintage pages of a French child's schoolwork. Check out that penmanship!


Love the tins. I think I saw some like that in France.

We also took a drive down to Alameda, a small island across the bay from San Francisco. We just took a stroll and had some lunch. I found a great vintage feed sack and also got a few things at JoAnn's while we were out. It was a lovely day and I enjoyed just kicking around with Nick. Now I must get my pattern instructions finished so I can get it tested and into the shop!

What pretty things you're making! I've been sketching out a plan for making a camera case this past week and seeing yours is inspiring me further. The case I want is huge to accommodate my extra lenses and assorted photography supplies. So, I'm still plugging away with the whole concept. I love all the things you found on your outing, those tins are adorable.
