Sick day

August 13, 2007 at 1:08 pm 1 comment

I started making a totebag last night.

I’m going to use the lemon Alexander Henry fabric I bought a month or two ago for the majority of the exterior, with a stripe of solid pale yellow at the top. The straps are pale yellow as well, and the entire bag will be lined in my pink polka dot fabric.

I finished the straps and had planned on getting most of it done tonight after work, but plans changed.

I’m stuck at home on the couch with a horrible head cold, a view of the TV, and a side table covered in sick-girl necessities.

Luckily, I have company.

I just don’t have the energy to work on any crafts this afternoon, which I’m not happy about, because I have so many great ideas floating around in my head for the totebag and for a very special card that I want to make. Perhaps post afternoon nap. Or perhaps tomorrow.

My head hurts.
