I can't wait for fall when all the great fresh garden vegetables are ready. Don't get me wrong, I'm loving summer. I just want a tomato sandwich right now! I really hope my neighbor's garden over produces and that they have to give us tomatoes and zucchini.

Last night, all I wanted to eat was carrots and ranch. Brooks kindly picked some up at the store but unfortunately they tasted like chemicals. Not sure if it was the carrots or the ranch. Pretty sure it was just me. Grrrr.

Creative Grossness

I'm entering a contest organized by a fabric designer. You just make something out of her fabric and email it to her. There's also a Flickr photo pool of the entries so far. You can see what I'm entering here. But more importantly, lets talk about the person who made reusable menstrual pads and entered them in the contest. HAH! I almost died laughing. That's just disgusting! And kind of insulting to the fabric designer don't you think?

Here I Am

Hi there. What's that you say? It's been a month since I blogged? Well let me tell you what I've been up to...

Sewing - I've been making custom order bags/purses. So far I've made 12. More to be done and shared later. Also, converting our old sewing blog to this new one.

Watching - So You Think You Can Dance, The Bachelorette, final eps of Pushing Daisies (sad to see it go), and more....

Working - I made a pact with myself to not talk about work on my blog. This is me not talking about work on my blog. I've been doing a lot of it. That's all I'm going to say.

Growing - Aside from the tomato plant on our deck (which seems to have been contaminated with a bug or something), I'm also growing a child. Expected harvest date is January 1, 2010. This might be the main reason for my month-long break :)

sooo... like the super awesome retro highchair I bought?
