|Still have a little more of this fabric, maybe enough for another wallet or 2!|

The kids are off for spring break this week, so I decided to take some time off and just relax with them. Which meant that I got to do some sewing. ;) I'm actually getting close to having my entire list for the month marked off! Of course if I'd stop adding more to it, I'd finish it for sure!
The second Dachshund wallet came together MUCH faster...and now I have an order for a Shih Tzu wallet...maybe I should get into dog lover's wallets?

Here's the final Magnolia from my assembly line madness! This fabric is one of my all time favorites! I love the blues and greens, so relaxing, but so many fun details too!

This fabric is not one I'd usually pick out, but I kind of fell in love with these dogs! Especially the one just lounging with the 'how you doin'?' look on his face...

Beware the Ides of March! Especially if your name is Caesar....
In other news, Things Are Getting Done. (yes, needs the caps) I FINALLY finished up the Dachshund Pick a Pocket wallet! Now I'm only 3 (purse) orders behind, and if you take into account that I have the interfacing cut for the second one already, I'm really even closer to caught up! Of course I have several "When you have time we should get together and discuss my purse" orders, but they aren't definite yet so I'm not counting them!

The entire reason I started on my Magnolia Messenger mission was for the swap, so I guess it's time to share the real one I sent out! My swap partner indicated that she loved all things Tula, plus purple and pink, so this fabric won out for the actual swap purse! It is definitely bright and bold, and the colors are very vivid! The turtle on the flap is not totally obvious at first glance (at least to me anyway!), but the colors and design are very pretty.

Did you ever have one of those crafting days when everything you touch is cursed? That was me last night. I was trying to do some pencil toppers on the embroidery machine and it decided that I needed to stay RIGHT beside it while it worked...the thread was shredding and getting caught, needles were breaking, and I'm pretty sure it was laughing at me. Then when I finally got that done and went back to the wallet I was working on, I tried to speed through it and messed that up too!

The second Magnolia is done in all fabric, and I only had a limited amount of the tonal gradient one. I love the colors, and they perfectly match the Ariel fabric! I think it came from a Gelato Ombre half yard pack I found on Mass Drop. I need to stockpile these, they are so gorgeous in person!
