I'm taking a week off work at the moment and everyone has gone away and left me at home alone. It's great cause it's the first time I've had the house to myself for more than one day. So to take advantage of being able to make noise at all hours I made lists, lots of lists. Things to do ... things to watch ... things to read. So far I haven't done any of it. I did get the guitar out and dusted it off to practice, but I can't tune it so I put it back. I lined up all the books I have to read, but haven't opened a single one. I put the silicon covers on the Wii remotes, but haven't played it. So what have I been doing you might ask? YouTube-ing. Seriously. I spent about three hours today just watching vids. Crazy addictive.

Before that I was working on my sewing skills and made this handbag (a variation of this tutorial) a little while ago. While it could do with ironing and I haven't sewn the felt flowers down yet, I quite like it.

Inside stripey lining with velcro closure.

This messenger bag is a work in progress for [livejournal.com profile] shiranti because I can't find the ring things I want to finish it and who knew you can't iron fake leather?

This is another work in progress, my first attempt at embroidery. This is the side of a handbag which will be black with pink trim and bamboo handles. (Never mind the hole in the fabric, I'll sew over it!).

I got some really cute black material with cherries on it yesterday, so I think I'll start another one tonight!

You. Are messing with my mind.

You can't have an icon like that and then show your pretty flowered handbag.

It's not allowed!
