In which I express my need for a time machine

I keep meaning to post about the glorious bag I won from LeeAnn at MintBasil. However, I have been so busy using it while getting ready for my WEDDING this weekend that I haven't had much time. I will say that it is more gorgeous in person and huge enough that I can take it bra shopping with my wedding dress in it so I can try it on over bras! Aww! Bag perfection! Apparently I'm not totally addicted to teeny tiny bags.

Felix has also been a big handful. He is currently using a measuring cup to ladle water out of the dog's bowl to drink it. I am usually able to get him to stop, but that doesn't mean he won't be doing it again in a few minutes.

I'm part way finished with making four creatures for four little friends. I'm not sure what they are. I was thinking bears, Josh thought monkeys, but I do know that they're cute. I got a bunch of felted wool sweaters off of freecycle a while ago and only recently rediscovered them while cleaning up the basement. They are snuggly soft and warm, but not put together all the way yet. I hand sewed one yesterday, but I'm not sure that I'll have time to do them all by hand. I am a little scared of shoving all the felt into my sewing machine, but I guess it's worth a try for the sake of getting them done by tonight!

There are still a bunch of pieces of the felted sweaters precut into squares (not the same size, unfortunately), and I'm thinking I might need to try one of those felted sweater blankets. That sounds like a good cozy project for this fall.

So the point of this rambly, picture free post is that I'm leaving tomorrow and might not be posting until I get back from my fabulous honeymoon. I'll try to take a few pictures today and get them posted. I'm not sure how all the great crafty mama bloggers get everything done that they do. If there's a secret time machine that they use, I'd like to know where I can get one!

Also, special thanks to my main man Chainsaw for sprucing up my page so that my pictures don't get cut off on one side. He also made me a sweet banner. There are definitely some perks to having a geeky boyfriend!

Your getting married this weekend!?! Congratulations! Have you seen my pile of felted sweaters? I could make a whole army of monsters. There is a new book out about using felted sweaters or regular sweaters for that matter that I need to get my hands on. Have fun on the honeymoon!
