I love you, Amazon.com

This came in the mail today, and I can't wait to get home and lock myself up with the sewing machine. I've been oogling the kit at Barnes and Noble for over a year, but couldn't bring myself to spend $25.00 (especially since a lot of the patterns are duplicates to the Amy Butler book I own). But $8.44? That's what I'm talking about!

My first project will be this one (market bag in the second picture). Stand by.

Note to self

Dear Self,

Don't spend all your money on vanilla lattes, because you want these things but need to save up for them:
  1. Ranunculus: $9.00 for 10 bulbs. Garden is coming along nicely and these colors are to die for.
  2. Danskos: CUTE feet! As soon as wool sock weather passes, these would be awesome. Similar look as salt water sandals, but better support (because they have actual soles).
  3. Fabric to make this rabbit. Snuggles await.
