I know, you’re tired of snow, tired of winter, etc. Me, too! However, today is an official “snow day” at work and I don’t have to go in or do any work related stuff and there is no guilt. Since I am salaried, I don’t have to take a vacation day and I don’t have to make up the time. It’s a GOOD thing! I probably will not be dug out by tomorrow so I have permission to work from home on Thursday. I love working from home because there are no interruptions and I get so much more accomplished. I am very disciplined so I really do work. I do take the occasional break and throw a load of laundry in the washer or do another small household task but mostly I work.
Today I will be working on a new bag design for Hazelnut Hill. It is my “Lunch Bag” and so much prettier than brown bagging it. Here’s a little preview:I am using some lovely Moda fabric that I had in my stash. It has two pockets across the back interior and a little pocket that holds the juice box size frozen cooler container. It is lined with fleece and thermal batting to keep things cool. I am going to make a matching purse and I think that will be my bag for the rest of the winter. I love my black leather Coach bag but it’s boring. I need a little “zippidy doo dah” to finish out this cold, gray season!
There are a couple of other little sewing projects I want to finish today. One is a gift that needs to get in the mail by Saturday. You know how I like working under pressure!
