The heat has arrived

Summer is here, it's been over a 100F for the last few days.  We try to go out earlier in the day, to a pool, the water park in the neighborhood, the zoo, or any place with some shade and water.  Then we hide inside in the middle of the heat. 
It works out one way or the other, and perhaps even more so since my work schedule changed and now I don't start until 2pm.  It gives me the entire morning with the kids.
I just ordered some really cool supplies from Stampington and can't wait for their arrival so we can make some new art.  In the mean time I've been sewing.  I found an easy pattern for a clutch.  It came in two sizes, but for practice I tried the smaller one first.  The finished size it's about a wallet size, big enough to put a small wallet and a cell phone.  It works well for me, although I will give the larger size a try too.
Here are the first few I made.

Vesna, I just wanted to reply to your comment on my blog. I am enjoying monoprinting so much that I believe you will too, so it might be worthwhile to give it a try and see how you like it.
I'm still waiting for my copy of Sew Somerset and will look up your article.
And thank you so much for ordering my stamps!
Cheers, Colette

Colette, I will sure share the project I make with your stamps. I enjoy your work so much and find inspiration in it to keep on making things myself. Thank you.
