Bummin' It

So, I'm having one of those days today. I'm still in my pj's and my daughter is running around in her pj top and a diaper. Am I the only one who does this? I feel so guilty when I do this, but I haven't done it in awhile. Well, if we don't have somewhere to be in the morning we tend to be in our pj's most of the morning but I am usually doing something. I am a morning house cleaner in pj's! That is how most of my cleaning gets done and with my daughter running around "helping". They're not even cute pj's....ugly old pj pants and a t-shirt that says, "It's all about Rusty."

Just so you know..I am working on getting laundry done, I washed the dishes and I did take care of our cat's litter box. Does that all count for anything? I wouldn't let myself escape into blog world until those things were done. Oh, and I did manage to keep my child alive this morning although not too entertained. Daddy has taken over with her.

I have some pics of the newest totes that I have made. I think I have mastered this style of tote. Why am I making all of these? I am actually helping out my mother-in-law who is an avid quilter. She is going to be selling items at a festival our town has over Labor Day. She asked me to help her out by making some things. Now quilts scare me...all the exact measuring and matching up points, so I am taking over on totes. Ha! That is what these bags are for. I am going to try to master a few more patterns for her too. She is quite the slave lord. Ha! She is so good to us so it is the VERY least I can do.

I need your thoughts though. What do you think of this style? Would you use something like this? I like it, but that's only my opinion. Hubby has no in-put because he is not a girl...that's what he told me. But he likes them. :)

Should I try to add a pocket to some of them? I thought about coming up with a cosmetic case pattern to make for each one. Help!

YOU CRACK ME UP! You are like a whole new person on this thing. I love it love it. Makes me feel like I need to start a new blog and make something.... but what can I make? I can croched tape worms.
So do I get to have an opinion? I like the totes! Can you make any that are a little bit smaller? And do put a pocket on some! I especially love the patterns with brown and I would love some that were brown and pink! Okay is that too much opinion? ha ha!
I'm ready to do you hair and watch the office. Let's do it. We're going to do it in July! Pick a date. I get out at noon on Friday's now through the summer! Email me or call me.

I clean in my PJs too, and there are many days we don't get dressed until lunch time. It's just one of the perks of being a mom! I'm just wondering, who's this Rusty person?

Hey there... just came across your blog through mommiedaze... I like it! I like the bags too! Good size, especially for carrying everything you might need with little ones. I think a cell phone pocket might be nice, and yes maybe a matching coin purse or something.
