sewing day

despite michael being sick and sleeping the day away, i was able to make two new bags. thanks largely to the christmas gifts from my dad that arrived today, keeping the kids occupied. i'm also posting a picture of the new coffee sack market bag. i had a few request for some non-messenger bags and decided to give one a try and it worked out nicely.
we watched "lars and the real girl" tonight and it was great! heart-wrenching and hilarious, a combo you can rarely go wrong with. and ryan gosling...(insert sound of my heart fluttering here)

i really wanted to keep this one...

i love using michael's painting as a back drop. everything is more dramatic...

last night...

last night we had a franklin house event with two amazing bands and a few special guests that popped in. a paper cup band is from minneapolis, mn. their drummer kyle (a.k.a rupert angeleyes, a.k.a. elsworth toohey) played our forth of a lie event earlier this summer. dirty fist! returned for their second show this year. fair was especially anxious for the chelseas (yes...both of them are named chelsea) to arrive. they are one of the reasons for why we gave fair her violin a bit early. and she snuck out with it to join a paper cup band. cute. johnny, from tin tree factory, and ryne watts showed up (visiting family for the holidays) and played as well. we had a full house and despite a heater that stopped working on one of the coldest days so far... it was one of the most lively and enjoyable shows of the year. i got to work on my accordion sqeezin' and it lit a flame under my rear to start practicing with the band again, now that school is out for the next month. here's to more nights of love...
