What to Do on a Rainy Day

It has rained and rained and rained, and it's getting ready to do it again.  I'm beginning to feel like I'm in England.  We won't even talk about the humidity, so I need to find some indoor activities.
I've been looking at summer bags, though I should probably be looking at umbrellas, but the ones I like are more than I want to pay.   So I went looking for a pattern to make one and  found a free pattern online to download.  Then I had to find some material, and for some reason I've been in a polka dot mood, have even bought several tops made of polka dot fabric.  On Etsy I found what I was looking forward so I ordered some polka dot fabric in different shades of blue.   Now that the material has gotten here I think I'll give it a go.  It'll have the dark blue with tiny white polka dots as the main part of the bag, and the lighter blue will go on the top and line it.
The flowery material will probably be made into pillows, the Fourth of July looking material is going to be made into napkins, the sunflower material will be a tablecloth and I'm not sure about the strawberry material.

So upstairs I go, air conditioning will definitely be in line.


  1. You're going to be busy! Polka dots are very 'in' so my daughter tells me and I love that 4th of July material, lets hope the rain has stopped in both our countries by then!

  2. Ooh, love that strawberry fabric. Be sure to post pics of your bag!


Tuesday in the Swamp

Summer has arrived here in the swamp with temperatures in the 90's and afternoon thunderstorms.  Sunday we went down the road to the Mar...
