A New School

The Girl of the House returned to school this morning. Day one at the middle school - now she's a sixth grader!

Requisite first day of school picture.

I sewed the pocket on my Satchel. I've decided not to attach the strap. What we really wanted was more of a protective sleeve to slip inside another bag. We didn't really need the strap. (Guess that was a waste of really boring knitting!)

It fits our MacBook perfectly, and we can get lots of cords in the pocket!

I've had a couple of garage sale purchased sweaters that I felted down, just aging in my craft/sewing room. Yesterday, I finally followed through on what I had intended for them.

They became throw pillows for the couch!

They're soft, floofy, and I really like the way they look.

So love the laptop bag that I may have to make one for the kids' computer.

And the pillows - great googly, moogly, they're fabulous.
