Random Acts of Lemmings

  • If everyone jumped off a cliff would you just go ahead and follow? NO.
  • If everyone swam across the Palouse River just upstream from the 198 ft drop waterfall would you? NO. (ok I have to confess, I did May 17, 1980, the day before Mt St Helens blew)
  • If everyone was sewing tote bags and DPN cases would you? YES. At least a tote bag.
  • Do I need another tote bag? NO

All these tote bags being sewn got me in the mood to sew one. So tonight I wandered into the LFS and luckily right as I got there, so did my son's girlfriend's sister. We talked about why we were there and when I mentioned that I was going to sew a tote bag even though I don't need one, she exclaimed "I love tote bags, they are so popular right now!". So the die was cast. I decided that I was going to make Elizabeth a tote bag.

I'll give it to Elizabeth on Saturday when I pick up Rachel at 7:30 am when we drive up to pick up all of Graham's college stuff except a few changes of clothes, his books, his laptop and Graham.

The first picture I took and loaded last night came out terrible and I couldn't figure out why. It was because I had the C2H6O assist feature on. I'd left the polarizing filter on the lens and everything was coming out dark on one side. Duh. In answer to Trek's question -> 2 glasses of 2005 Hogue Late Harvest Riesling.

Ah, Mt St. Hellen's, I remember that well. I had friends living there, which motivated me to moving out to Seattle for a while.
The tote is really great! Pretty fabric, too.

Wonderful tote bag! Great material, too! Sometimes I wish I had a sewing maching to do small projests like curtains or pillows and such. Then I remember the days of living with a quilter, and having fabric and thread and quiltpieces and tape measures and rotary cutters and cutting boards and pins and stuff. Then I pick my knitting back up.....

We're you inside or outside of the Mt.St. Helen's blow zone and why were you there? Sounds like you're part of that Mountain Dew adventure crowd. Ha ha? I still have ash somewhere that I saved from our yard when she blew. Love the bag.
