Zippity Doo-dah!

I snatched this fun Alexander Henry home dec fabric called "Ringo" (thanks April!) from Sew to Speak a while back and decided to have another go with zippers. I happened to have a coordinating zipper with the same shade of goldish-yellow, so here it is! Gloria has already claimed it for herself which just happens to match the interior of an adorable purse said bf also purchased from Sew to Speak, after some negotiations with the shop owner (I'm told.)
I have just enough Ringo left to make one more bag or pouch of some sort... maybe to add to my Christmas Gift Stash? Am I insane to be thinking about Christmas already? Probably.

And I'm quite excited to go CAMPING this weekend! We're going with Justin's parents and who knows else. We haven't broken out the tent and gear in over a year, so I'm looking forward to it! We'll be camping at Alum Creek which means boating all day Friday and Saturday too! Woot!
I happen to have Friday off from work (Employee Appreciation Day) so this is a great week. Gotta take advantage of summer while its here! What do you plan on doing with the rest of your summer?

The fabric's gorgeous!! I love metal zippers... makes it look a little retro :) This weekend the hubs and I are taking my sister to Boston since she's never been!

What a great pouch, that fabric is so fresh and vibrant! Enjoy your camping trip!

Love the purse, love the fabric! It's winter here but the weekend should be fine. We shouldn't complain we're in a drought and therefore NEED rain. Looking forward to a second session of machine quilting! Whoo Hooo! Fabulous excuse to be behind the machine sans husband and children for 6 hours! FUN. AND...my session project is quilting a Christmas Tree Skirt. More FUN!
