A Whirlwind Wait

Phew - it's been a whirlwind past couple of weeks.  While I should be resting and relaxing and nesting, it's actually been go-go-go!  And every night passes that I ask the little one to just wait one more day while I get this "last" thing organised.

Dear Husband had his wisdom teeth taken out.  I nearly cried when they wheeled him out of the hospital to the car (standard operating procedure).  He looked so.... operated on.  That was a couple of weeks recovery time.

Then we bought a new car (to fit the third car seat).

Then we sold our old car.

Then we bid on an apartment (and was successful!)

Then we organised financing and settlement.

As you can see, little bubs has been very patient.  She had dropped a couple of weeks ago, but then decided if she was going to wait then she would wait a little higher up probably where it is more comfortable (for both of us!).

In amongst all that, I've been trying to "nest".  But, I have to say that nesting and crafting really don't go hand-in-hand!  Especially when I've been using the bassinet as crafting storage for the past year.  Oh - where am I going to put all of the work-in-progress projects if not the bassinet?!?

Hmmm.... maybe I should try finishing them!

And so I present the first UFO now F!!! ("UnFinished Object now Finished" for those of you not up with the cra-lingo.)

It's the wristlet bag from You Sew Girl's book.

I'm working my way through the bags in the book.  The book is laid out so that each project builds on the techniques of the previous project.

And it's written in such an engaging way that it makes me want to sew!

Yep - sewing just to sew.

Seriously, I have no use for this bag!  I love the material - the outside is like a textured linen type thing.  And I love the style and shape - it just sits comfortably in your hand if you are holding it or dangles nicely from your wrist.  And the gorgeous button from Buttonmania...!

But I really don't need this bag... you want it?
