Hark! I have some dissimilar pieces of information to compile for a blog post!

Mama's bag...

mamabag

Although she's not technically a mama (yet), I made this purse for my BFF from Soulemama's newest craft book. Such an easy, instant gratification kind of project. My fave. I used some thrifted heavy-weight fabric for the outer material and...had enough left over to cut out an EXACT MATCH for myself. Ahem. So my BFF's purse will have a BFF of its own.

Ducks...

From a trip to our wonderful, practically-backyard Rhodie garden.

And, home haircut...

HairBefore

HairDuring

HairHappy

Not as memorable as these haircuts (the latter, of which, Tracey so graciously recalled for me. Thanks Tracey!) But Holden's been growing his hair out for yikes, well over a year?? I cut off 8 inches, not quite the 10 inches that we hoped he had for Locks of Love. But oh well...there's always next year (he decided to grow his hair out again, after a mere 5 minutes post-haircut).

Some things never, ever change around this Whatknot household...

A friend of mine is just learning to sew and she one of her first projects was a Mama's bag. I love the fabric you choose. Maybe I'll make one myself someday.

Found your blog via The Crafty Crow! I am so taken with your photos-would you mind sharing what type of camera you use?

I have yet to try that bag pattern, but after seeing your pics, I absolutely MUST venture into my fabric stash and get to sewing!

8" off! Wow, that's impressive!
