So yesterday while 90% of everyone else in the world was watching the game and simultaneously gorging on chips/salsa and other sorts of food, I was sewing and fasting. Shaaaaweeeet.
While I do love me a nice big bowl of salsa and/or guacamole I didn't partake.
Wanna know the best part about sewing instead of football? There's no football involved! Yeeehaw. I have grown up in a very football/baseball filled house, and while I've been known to accidentally watch football/baseball on occasion, it really doesn't make me a better person or broaden my horizons. I can't tell a difference between any games, they are all the same to me.
So I went downstairs and started a few projects. I might have watched 5ish episodes of Bones while down there too. Why would someone watch the super bowl when they have have a sewing/bones bowl?
I've been wanting to make a laptop sleeve for awhile to prevent scratches in all my 'commuting'. The pattern I found online was bogus and the other one cost money so I looked at the picture and figured it out on my own. My mom and I played sewing machine tag the entire time. She had a project and I had mine, it's never too late to learn to share.
It took a little bit of time, but I finally finished my sleeve at the same time the super bowl got over. Perfect!
Then tonight I got home from work and had some time so I made up these bags for someone I work with:
These 4 bags took 2 episodes of Bones. Apparently that's how I'm going to measure time now. I promise I don't just sit and watch them all day!
